Re: Gibbs to Resign as HC/President

Sad, sad day in Redskins history. It will be strange to see someone else on the sidelines. I listened to the press conference on the way home from work, I got a little choked up. I kept looking for Redskins emblems on other cars to see how those fans were reacting. I am broken hearted over this. Best of luck Joe, you are loved and will be deeply missed.

Re: Gibbs to Resign as HC/President

Come on guys, what did you expect? When he met with Snyder about his future you knew something like this could be in the offing. This season had to be totally draining to him. An underachieving team in the beginning and middle of the season, then the double timeout fiasco, then right after that the worst thing of all, Sean's murder. Top it all off, his 2 year old grandson has leukemia and has an uphill battle to survive. Sorry, if I was Gibbs I would walk away also. Coaching itself with all that pressure is draining, pile the rest of the stuff on and shoot I would say game over also. It is sad he is going, but I for one thought he was gone after next season anyway. The franchise isn't going to take a dive from this. We were going to have to let Coach go soon, we just have to deal with it being sooner than later.

He is still with the team as a special advisor to Dan Snyder, but I'm sad to not see him as coach anymore. No coach can replace Joe Gibbs. He is like the heart of the organization. The best coach in Redskins history. I'm sad to see him go.

That's a thought that scares the hell out of me.
Al and Gregg already made a majority of the personnel decisions under Gibbs.

I really don't think anything is going to change. I think Williams will be named the next coach, and Saunders will keep his position. I think Blache gets to call the defensive plays.

Joe built this coaching staff to be structurally sound once he left. I don't think one thing is going to change this offseason.

Now, if the team regresses massively next season, there could be total chaos and upheaval. For right now though, things should stay the same.

I think you summed up my sentiments about Coach Gibbs and his reasons for stepping down. I love Coach Gibbs and will remember how his presence was felt on his second return. However, it was time. After a close defeat, Coach Gibbs always sounded depressed and drained from the loss. It's time to get a Coach with wisdom, knowledge of the NFC east and of course able to beat the shit out of Dallas!
