3. Redskins 14-13 v. Dallas in 2005 (Having watched the whole game again on DVD it really was really really crappy for about 55 minutes; actually stayed up and watched the thing thinking that the suffering would make the joy that much better later - just didn't know it would come that night. Woke up my neighbors after Santana Moss' 2nd TD - lived in an apartment then and they started banging on the wall).

Honorable Mention -

- Blocked kick v. Dallas in 2006, Taylor's TD v. Philly in 2005, and listening to pretty much the whole 2005 season via Sirius Radio since I was in SC and did not yet have a hardworking wife willing to pay for Sunday Ticket. Much different experience listening on radio exclusively and Sonny, Sam, and Larry sure made it seem like the Redskins should have won every game that year
I was at the 35-7 game too, never forget how crazy fedex was.

The greatest thing about this thread & Gibbs II is that we have 4 wins over dallas to choose from & all of them were big for us. even the 06 win. We didn't go to the playoffs that year so I consider that win our SB of 06.

Another great footnote to Gibbs II. Pre Gibbs II we'd lost 13 of 14 v. Dallas. During Gibbs II the rivalry returned, w/a 4-4 split. Though he was only .500 vs. Dallas, 3 of our 4 wins were in playoff years.

Re: 3 Best Memories in Gibbs II

1. When Joe returned and shocked all REDSKIN FANS and DC and right in front of him where those THREE beautiful SB trophies he brought to this organization in his first tenure, DC lit up like a Christmas tree when he shocked the football world!

2. The come from behind win over Dallas in Dallas, way to go Mark to Santana = 14-13 SKINS!

3. The last game Joe ever coached at FedEx against who else The Cowgirls, brought the entire family to the game had no idea at the time that would be the last time we would see him on the sidelines, but darn sure knew what was at stake for that 12.30.07, 4:15 game! Win and we're in! And what a WIN it was. 27-6 What a VICTORY!

JOE THE MAN: How Joe the man handled the entire ST tragedy from top to bottom, and managed to keep this organization together. ONLY JOE could do a job that well. Also, one thing that really stands out is after we lost his final game in Seattle, on the post game show he spoke to Pedro Taylor, and spoke of how Sean had grown as a man and how many lives this horrible tragedy had touched in a positive way, that it brought so many of Sean's friends and teammates closer to the LORD it just really stands out to me as to the true man and leader of men Joe Gibbs is and will always be.

no particular game just the fact that he did when no other coach after Gibbs I could.
Well said. I'll take beating Dallas as my number one.

2. Sean Taylor

3. 10/1/06 vs. Jacksonville. While it was a rare highlight during what turned out to be a disappointing season, I was lucky enough to have been in attendance. As Santana ran for the endzone....I can't remember ever being so happy.

3. Taylor's fumble recovery in 05 against the Eagles to seal the win and vault us to the playoffs.

Other memorable moments, Taylor's blocked field goal return to give the Redskins the win against Dallas at home in 06', Portis' first run as a Redskin, the 5 game win streak at the end of 05', the 4 game win streak at the end of 07'.
This is my list exactly

Re: 3 Best Memories in Gibbs II

1. Proving all the doubters wrong with a 5 game winning streak to get into the playoffs in 2005, then beating the lucky Bucs in the playoffs.
2. Proving all the doubters wrong with a 4 game winning streak to get into the playoffs this past season.
3. Retiring on his own terms while retaining all of the luster that has made him such a great coach and such a beloved figure in the game.

Honorable Mention:

1. His stunning comeback to the team in January of '04. Couldn't believe it when I heard it, but I couldn't have been more excited!
2. Beating the worthless Cowboys on four memorable occasions.
3. Showing us once again just what a class-act he is. I hope he continues his great success in NASCAR! He will definitely be missed!

1. Brunell's bomb to Moss for the MNF win.
2. Crushing Dallas 27-6 for the last playoff berth in 07
3. Stepping down as head coach.
