You forgot to mention Tomlin who did make the playoffs. The coaches you name all coached bad teams. If the Skins are half as good as most on this board think a young coach would have no problem guiding this talent-filled organization to the playoffs. I have no doubt this organization will hire a "name" coach as this is what the orgfanization & fans demand.
I would venture to say you're in the vast minority when you say they made the playoffs in spite of Gibbs. (Although some will take your post and call it the norm on this site).

I'd also venture to say that no amount of discussion will convince you otherwise.

Re: Should Gibbs stay or go?

I'm pretty sure he's staying but what i was really trying to ask is if you guys wanted him to stay instead of looking for a new coach already? I see that there's still people who aren't satisfied with him so I guess I still kinda got my answer...

The majority of us want him to stay. You will find a minority who want him gone, because they feel a younger coach is the way to go. Of course, most of those are probably the younger fans who were not around during the first tenure of Gibbs, or either the old folkies who were around long before Gibbs showed up in Washington. Make no mistake, Joe Gibbs is and will always be a Washington Redskin.

Re: Should Gibbs stay or go?

As a H.S. coach, you hate to see a coach whose style you admire make critical mental mistakes, but it is how they respond afterward that shows their true mark on the team. Considering what the "experts" predicted out of this team and what the Skins were actually able to accomplish is because of the coaching. I get sick and tired of people talking how the come back coaches can't deal with the new NFL. Gibbs is showing he can adjust to the new NFL. That being said, when it is time to bring in a new coach, whether it be Williams or a young coach, I hope they will have the ability to put the coaching staff together that fits their system

Great post. They'll still say he needs to adjust to the new NFL even after he wins a championship.

Totally agree - with a healthy O-line, I expect the Saunders offense to take off next season. I'm hoping that Jason Campbell eliminates any doubt of a QB controversy with great play from day one next year.

Stay stay, I'm tired of this Bill Cohwer BS, sounds like Dan Snyder talk when I hear that...and we know where that road leads us. And the last thing we need is another coach added to our staff.

Are you really fucking serious? Or are you just trying to be some little annoying 12 year old? Im being serious, are you trying to be sarcastic or not? If your not, then brother you need to get your head from out of your ass, and hurry up about it. Do you really, truly, actually believe that this team did what they did WITHOUT leadership, from the only man, probaly in the entire NFL, that could have guided and lead this team thru such tradgedy? Are you really, truly, actually suggesting a younger, fiery kind of whipper snapper that you prefer would have been able to do anything slightly resembling what Coach Gibbs did? I think that is the stupidist thing Ive heard so far this year, and what sucks is its only the 7th. I usually dont respond to such horse shit as this, and you can call it your opinon, its still horseshit, but I just couldnt 'step away from the computer' on this one.

Re: Should Gibbs stay or go?

Joe Gibbs will finish out his contract. I pray for more, but if he's moved to Team President or GM or CEO or whatever title they give him after this season I'm ok with that. I do think we should stay with Williams and Saunders... We will win with the triumvert! IN GIBBS WE TRUST, REDSKINS WILL WIN; WE MUST!!!

You might want to expand on that a bit and give us a clearer rationale as to why you think that, because as it is right now it sounds pretty damn ridiculous. Especially when it seems that every player that is asked about it says that Gibbs was the glue and steadying force that held the team together during the Taylor tragedy. This sounds like 2005 all over again with some people deflecting due credit away from Gibbs for any success the team has.
