But if we had Brian Billick or Bill Cowher under the same circumstances with the same results you would have said "Look at the fiery coach taking charge!"

I dont think so. Cowher and Billick would not have been smart enough to get out of the way.

So then you admit that Gibbs was the best coach for this situation.

Couldn't disagree more.

Leadership starts at the top and works it's way down. Gibbs' calm and steadying influence undoubtedly played a role in the teams turnaround and 4 game run. I don't understand how you can downplay that. Sounds like another lame excuse to deflect credit away from Gibbs.

Re: Should Gibbs stay or go?

I am one who believes in continuity. I have not been a big Gibbs supporter through the season winning or losing and have said multiple times he should step down. However, after listening to the players and how much they fight for Joe is kinda hard to call for him to step down. He has definately got this team to be a "family" and that is hard to do in the todays NFL. I am kinda mixed on this, if he stays good, if he goes we'll be ok too.

I want the Skins to find a new young and energetic coach instead of going after a "name" like they always do.
The other downside, Irish, is that it is harder for people to get so pissy when Gibbs supporters bring up the 2005 playoff run. It's harder for Gibbs critics to argue that 2/4 of Gibbs' years were flukes.

Why is there a need for a new, energetic coach? Do you think Gibbs is no longer putting in the effort? Do you think Gibbs is too old and out of touch with today's generation?

Re: Should Gibbs stay or go?

Before the season started, if you said we'd finish 9-7, I probably would have that's it for Gibbs. But after what he was able to do in December, I have been reminded why he is one of the best NFL coaches of all time. I really hope - and expect that - he comes back for the 2008 season, at least.
