Gibbs 2.0 was out of his element as a coach. Yes we love him, and yes he was better than anything we've seen in a long time, but he wasn't ready to handle the modern NFL. To say otherwise seems to be out of touch. We all revere Joe, but 2.0 was not a stunning success.
in writing these daily letters and trying to make them interesting it is always possible that some sentiment may occur which has not received the severe and deliberate scrutiny and reconsideration which should attach to a State Paper.
