PFT RUMOR - Joe Gibbs Could Be Coming Back

Joe Gibbs could be taking a Tuna-style role in D.C. | ProFootballTalk.com

Joe Gibbs could be taking a Tuna-style role in D.C.
As the Washington Redskins continue to quickly unravel, the man who delivered the team's only three Super Bowl trophies could soon be coming back.

Again.

There's a rumor making the rounds that two-time former head coach Joe Gibbs could be returning in a role similar to the one occupied by Bill Parcells in Miami. Gibbs would be responsible for hiring a G.M. and a head coach, and otherwise stabilizing the franchise without grinding away as a head coach.

We reported earlier this month that owner Daniel Snyder still consults with Gibbs, and that the two men had dinner in Charlotte the night before the Redskins' loss to the Panthers.

For now, it's just a rumor. And it possibly flows from the fact that it makes a lot of sense.

Then again, the fact that it makes so much sense probably means it won't happen.
Please be true.

Re: PFT Rumor - Joe Gibbs is Coming Back

Giving this the 60% accuracy test for anything PFT related, I'd be fine with this move. As long as he's not making the personnel decisions himself, that could be a good thing because the one person we know that Snyder won't overstep his bounds on is Gibbs.

Re: PFT Rumor - Joe Gibbs is Coming Back

While I love Gibbs and DS could do worse I really feel the game has past by Gibbs. Bill Parcells never really left football so its a much different situation.

Re: PFT Rumor - Joe Gibbs is Coming Back

NO, NO, NO! How many times do we have to switch offensive philosophies? I love Joe Gibbs, but I want to keep the memories that I have of him as fond ones. I want to continue trying to implement the "WCO" not the "Air Correyell offense"

Well, I guess it's better that what we have, but it is not exactly what I had in mind for the team from my own fan perspective.

Re: PFT Rumor - Joe Gibbs is Coming Back

For me, as long as he comes in as basically a mediator, I'm all for it. He might not be the greatest talent evaluator in the world, but he's a hell of a team builder.

Re: PFT Rumor - Joe Gibbs is Coming Back

Wow, I dont know how I feel about this....

A part of me is thrilled because anything beats VC. But at the same time Gibbs 2.0 wasn't so hot in player eval IMO. maybe if Gibbs only focuses on that role, it would be ok. But, on the other hand, wouldnt he just get a bunch of "smash-mouth" players catered for the triple TE formation?

You nailed it on the head. Having Gibbs in the role would also add legitimacy to our front office and make it more likely that a respectable coach and GM would WANT to come here - something I highly doubt would happen otherwise. Gibbs would also create a nice "buffer" between the Coach/GM and Snyder - something that would also make those jobs more attractive. I think the move might even be enough to get Cowher to take us off his black list.

Re: PFT Rumor - Joe Gibbs is Coming Back

I'd thought of this possibility myself. I know, or should I say I believe, Gibbs would not want to coach again at his age. But the one thing he didn't really succeed in was nfl mgmt.

Don't get me wrong, I think Gibbs II was great for this franchise, but he was part of some terrible moves, loyd, arch, trading picks, etc. He got us to the playoffs twice, which is more than we'd seen since he left the first time, but he probably would still love to prove that he could manage a team.

Re: PFT Rumor - Joe Gibbs is Coming Back

I hope this isn't true.

Being that Gibbs also trades away draft picks for aging guys I'm not too excited about this. I like the team president approach though.

This sounds like a Snyder move to get fans back in his corner but still gives him influence over our roster.

He's not a good candidate being that he had involvement in poor front office decisions in the past. He's also way too butt-buddy with Snyder to not have his decisions be affected by Snyder.


Bad move but I bet that casual Skins fans are licking it up right now. I'd hate to see Gibbs be Snyder's fall guy.

Re: PFT Rumor - Joe Gibbs is Coming Back

I hope this isn't true. Joe Gibbs is my favorite person in sports and I don't want to see Snyder drag Coach Joe back into this mess. If this is true I see it purely as an attempt by Snyder to calm the fans down by having Gibbs sign off on the next coaching hire.

My other concern is that if this is legitimate and Gibbs does want to lead the franchise then we could end up stuck with Vinny again because Coach Joe didn't fire Vinny 6 years ago when he could have.

I would argue that Gibbs' 2nd stint was more than enough for him to learn the cap, and the style of play in today's nfl. I don't know if talent evaluation is his strong suit per se, but character evaluation & team building is. I agree w/those that say he would add legitimacy & provide a buffer between DS & everyone else. If he hired a GM, he wouldn't take a lead role in player evaluation, but would probably have the final call.

I thought Gibbs left the team in fairly good shape. He had 2 great coordinators, one of which had HC experience, yet Vinny/DS essentially blew up one side of the ball & started over. I can't help but think what would've happened if GW was HC & Al remained the OC.

Re: PFT Rumor - Joe Gibbs is Coming Back

This has run through my mind too, as coach...at least for the remainder of this season...but I figured he's too busy.

I would love to see him as GM if we can't attract any other top-level candidates.


However, this is from PFT...so I am not giving it any merit yet.

Re: PFT Rumor - Joe Gibbs is Coming Back

Gibbs does a good job in evaluating good people to run things. He speaks alot about surrounding himself with good people who know there role and gets everybody to contribute for a common goal. I think advising Danny Boy on who to hire as in GM and then advising on head coach and they FO people is the best news I have heard all year. I dont like him chosing players and looking for talent, but I think the idea of rebuilding the top of the organzation is probably Gibbs' greatest strength at this point.

But do you know that to be true? It's been said on here by many that keeping Vinny has always been a requirement by DS. I don't know, but I certainly never got the impression that Gibbs could fire Vinny. If he came back today, I would think that would be more likely, or at the least Vinny would take on some ceremonial role.
