If he came back just for Coy, he came back for the wrong reason, and that's just not his style to jump into something without considering the big picture.

Excellent post Matty!

Seems as though Walsh would also fall into Gibbs category, of being a players coach. Can't say which one I'd rather have, since I don't know the inside scoop on him.
I think Walsh has a BIG EGO........he's not a humble as Gibbs or a lot of others on the list......it was always "Walsh's system"......or "The Genius" and I think it showed on Walsh...........I didn't really hear his former players talk about Walsh much...........

Or course it could be just Forty Whiner hating me with my 2 cents......

but I think Gibbs takes the cake when it comes to love. Nowhere else do you hear players saying things like "It's like you're playing for your grandfather. You just want to go out there and fight for him." And what has ever generated such a buzz within the Beltway as much as his return did? The fans love this guy, how can you not? And I think the best part about him, is you can truly see that he loves us all right back. I mean he turned down a coaching opportunity with the Falcons several years ago. The only team he ever could have come back to was here, fighting for old D.C.

That's love right there. There's not a coach in all of history who'd I'd rather have.
GREAT GREAT post Schneed......agree with everything you said. :headbange

I agree canthetuna...Madden should be on that list too.....his players really seemed to love playing for him too. And it takes a special coach to take charge of castoffs and renegade players........he had quite a group there.....
