Here's another awesome article from Redskins.com via extremeskins.

He didn't need to come back and put his legacy on the line for the Redskins. He was doing quite well in NASCAR, and he has a bust in Canton. He didn't come back for a paycheck, that's for damn sure.

I believe he will sign a 2 year extension after this season and he will continue working his ass off trying to get this ship back on course.

There are 3 things that should never be questioned with Joe Gibbs. His faith, his work ethic, and his leadership abilities.
Very very true. I would never ever question any of these things w/ Gibbs. However I will question his game management skills the 2nd go around. But FINALLY, as we sit in year 4, it looks like he's gotten it figured out.

Good article.

We really do have a lot of no-names out there right now.

This is a classic Gibbs team.

Re: Is Gibbs Getting His Mojo Back?

IMO the defense has been pretty consistent this year, our recent success is largely attributable to the greater consistency on offense. With players recovering from injury and the QB securing the ball and making quicker reads, our offense has flourished. I know some might accuse me of being a Gibbs' apologist, but in my mind Gibbs has been a constant whereas the player execution/availability has not. Nonetheless, it's funny how our perception of Gibbs is so dramatically affected by things outside of his control (e.g., player injuries and turnovers).

That was a great article. Sometimes I still have to pinch myself and remember that we won a SB with Mark Rypien.

I heart Mark Steven (Om). When it comes to writing about this team and bringing things into perspective, he is in a class by himself.

Wow, nice job of validating a point. I thought he was turning the ball over too much also.

Just look at one of the Torresa videos (82 SB run) from the Warpath film room and you can see what I mean about the look in his eye.

Recently, there have been occasions where you can see glimpses of that - Minnesota game, when Landry picked up the dumb 15yarder on the Burress hit, etc.
Yeah buddy, I remember those days when he had that profesional swagger on the sidelines. We all saw it again last Sunday. Let's hope this team can channel that "swagger" on the field for some more games in January.

He's one of the few bright spots over there.

The lack of fire in his eyes is not a comment on his passion for coaching the skins and determination to turn us into a perennial winner. I don't doubt that he's still all about the latter two. Its about the confidence (without the arrogance) that he can accomplish what he wants to.

Perhaps "fire in the eyes" is not the best term for what I'm describing. That confidence in his eyes which he had the first go around has disappeared

Re: Is Gibbs Getting His Mojo Back?

I dunno, I just don't see anything different when I see Gibbs on the sidelines as opposed to 20 years ago. He's always been stoic and focused.

It's funny that when the team wins, people see "fire in his eyes". When the team loses he looks lost and confused. I think people are just seeing what they want to see.

Don't forget that he was also a national racquetball champion at the age of 35. With that said I fully agree with your comments. The only factor that I know of right now that may affect his decision is his family.
