2000's Patriots VS. 1980's Redskins

I posed this question to espn's Greg Garber earlier and here's the response I got. Do you see it as well? Will Joe do it again??

http://proxy.espn.go.com/chat/chatESPN?event_id=7179

davis (dallas texas): Greg, This Pats team bears a striking resemblence to a very dominant team of the 80's that was orchestrated by Hall of Fame coach Joe Gibbs. Fundamentaly sound in every aspect, little to no mistakes, several less than household names coming together as one to play for the team and not themselves, not very flashy but effective, and so on... Do you see the comparison, and do you see any other team doing it in the near future?

Greg Garber: (2:33 PM ET ) David: Nice observation. They DO remind me of those Gibbs' Redskins. I covered the NY Giants during their eight-year SB run and was always impressed with Gibbs' teams. Belichick and Gibbs might be the most anal-retentive, detail-oriented coaches in the history of the game.

...very accurate comparison. Belichick is doing all this in todays nfl with the salray cap and free agency. he also has a quaterback who as the sports junkis put it "has been touched by god". Brady had a 103 temperature the night before the conference championship game and put up 41 points on the number 1 ranked defense in the league. let's see Gibbs do it next year!! I think we will see Ramsey's emergance as a solid quaterback in '05.

Gibbs just got his feet wet last year, and so did Ramsey

I'm not sure if I understand you correctly, but are you saying Ramsey is more talented than Brady?

I'll say something controversial.

I think that in a couple of years, Ramsey will be better than Brady.

Each of these coaches has a similar philosophy about their players. I heard one of the Pats players say they were a bunch of "no name guys" that didn't care if they got any credit as long as they won.........That sounds a lot like Joe Gibb's, "REDSKIN KINDA GUYS".

The Redskins made some terrible mistakes in the first half of that Super Bowl......especially Joey T's interception right before the half.....I laugh when he criticizes the QB's and tells them to throw it away instead of making it a bad throw.........that interception against the Raiders made the score unreachable............. BAD MEMORIES

I still have nightmares when I hear the name Jack Squirek. I had a bad feeling right from the start of that game when Jeff Hayes' punt was blocked

Gibb's said no now run it, so Theisman went to the huddle called the play and as he was walking to the line he was looking at Gibb's trying to get him to call the play off and take a knee when Gibb's motioned to him to run it, so he did, the rest is history. When that play was called it was even then uncharectoristic for Gibb's, I remember thinking what's the point even if it work's there won't be enough time to get another play off defiently a bad call even if it haden't been intercepted.
We didn't play our game.....very unGibbslike.........SIGH::::......................

At any point did Theismann take any blame for the throw?
