Just more hatin' on ol' Joe Gibbs. If it was up to the fans, we'd have a different coach and quarterback each week.
a) Most people supported Gibbs.
b) Gibbs has a much better staff around him.
c) We have much improved players from Spurrier's stint. If a team with Trung Candidate (see McDonalds drive through) can average 111 yards on the ground that says something.

I think as fans we should look objectively at our coaches. While everyone was willing to give Spurrier another year, you sure as hell weren't spouting the "I trust the coach" type crap that every thread has twenty boring posts filled with.

This coaching staff isn't doing any better than Spurrier, and I must say. That's disappointing. Hopefully one more year will turn the tide.

Coach Gibbs has earned our trust with having prior experience and success in the NFL. Steve Spurrier had no prior experience or success in the NFL. It's not that hard to figure out why people trust Joe Gibbs over Steve Spurrier, regardless of the current accumlated win-loss stat.

Of course it's disappointing that we're slumping. It's disappointing to me that we don't win the Super Bowl every year. Luckily, we have a coaching staff who is willing to put for the work ethic that it takes to turn things around. Steve Spurrier wasn't winning to do that.

Of course we didn't trust Spurrier, why should we have?

Gibbs has the resume and trophies, along with that comes trust and much respect.

The last few weeks have been rough, but with the possible exception of the Giants game Gibbs has had this team putting forth maximum effort with every player on board every single week. They all believe in Gibbs and are united as a team. I just never felt that way under Spurrier. The wins are going to follow eventually...
No one disputes that Spurrier's team was an absolute mess. The point of this thread was to demonstrate that even while Gibbs' team is putting forth its "maximum effort", there's been only the slightest improvement.

I'm not even sure you can use the term 'improvement' with the way this team has performed lately.

Yo Matty, (these remarks are not bout your post dmek) Don't forget to include Jack Pardee, Don King, The Duke of Earl, Pope John Paul, and the Marque de Sade. These would make as much sense as compairing Joe to Spurrier. They should not be mentioned in the same NFL breath. Spurrier was a fish out of water

Re: Gibbs vs. Spurrier -- stats about even?

spurrier may have had a better team when he was hired than gibbs did at his hiring...

I also think the strength of schedule this year is seriously affecting some of the stats.

I certainly agree. Our 9-7 win over Chicago looks pretty damn good when you consider who the sports writers are comparing them to. If we had closed games as well as we had started them we would have only 1 loss. The Giants are the only team that dominated the Redskins for the enitire game unlike the Cowboys whose misfortune in the 4th quarter has seem to rub off on us.

I do see vast improvement over Spurriers teams. The record does not tell the whole story. I believe this team is 100% better than anything spurrier ever put on the field. The division is much better now also. Spurrier coached when the NFC East was maybe the worst division in the league and now it is possibly the best. If Gibbs current team has won 5 games through 11 games, Spurriers team probably would have won 2 games against the schedule the skins have played this year.

Re: Gibbs vs. Spurrier -- stats about even?

Let's not play it like Gibbs lucked himself in to a top defense. He knows how to surround himself with quality coaches.

Spurrier did have Marvin Lewis and a quality defense, but Lewis was brought in by Snyder, not Spurrier.

We let the wrong guy go when Lewis left.

Re: Gibbs vs. Spurrier -- stats about even?

Ironically, Spurrier did better with key members of Marty's team (Davis, Gardner) in his first year than he did with his own key players (Trung, Coles) in his second year. Anyhow, let's break it down even further per Hog1's request: (ranks based on points scored and allowed):

Spurrier Year 1:

7-9
Offense Rank-#25
Defense Rank-#21
W-L (games decided by 7 points or less): 3-3
W-L (games decided by 21 points or more): 0-2
Yards rushing/game: 118
Yards passing/game: 220
Yards rushing allowed/game: 109
Yard passing allowed/game: 205

Spurrier Year 2:

5-11
Offense Rank: #22
Defense Rank: #24
W-L (games decided by 7 points or less): 4-7
W-L (games decided by 21 points or more): 0-3
Yards rushing/game: 103
Yards passing/game: 204
Yards rushing allowed/game: 138
Yards passing allowed/game: 209

Gibbs Year 1:

6-10
Offense Rank: #31
Defense Rank: #5
W-L (games decided by 7 points or less): 4-7
W-L (games decided by 21 points or less): 1-1
Yards rushing/game: 110
Yards passing/game: 180
Yards rushing allowed/game: 82
Yards passing allowed/game: 186

Gibbs Year 2 (through 11 games):

5-6
Offense Rank: #21
Defense Rank: #16
W-L (games decided by 7 points or less): 4-5
W-L (games decided by 21 points or more): 1-1
Yards rushing/game: 113
Yards passing/game: 212
Yards rushing allowed/game: 97
Yards passing allowed/game: 175

Re: Gibbs vs. Spurrier -- stats about even?

  1. It's not that "we" didn't give Spurrier another chance. He left in frustration.
  2. Spurrier came to the NFL to see if his football principles would work at the professional level. It's pretty obvious that they don't. Spurrier is a good enough football guy to have adapted, but he disliked being "NFL-ized." I'm not commenting on his frustration with the owner. However, Spurrier ruined Patrick Ramsey as an NFL-ized quarterback.
  3. Joe Gibbs is the only coach that Danny Snyder will not hinder. That alone make him more valuable than Spurrier.
In five years, Gibbs will have remade the Redskins from the inside out, with a stronger salary cap position and better evaluation of talent. Spurrier wouldn't have been able to do that. Remember he wanted Danny Wuerffel on the roster.

Re: Gibbs vs. Spurrier -- stats about even?

Im tired of hearing about the ruining of patrick ramsey. WTF!!! was he joe montana or john elway and spurrier became coach and made him patrick ramsey?

It's clear that Gibbs doesnt like Ramsey. We love his arm but i bet jeff george can still throw farther than ramsey.
I personally fell in love with ramsey during the titans game his rookie year. we were behind big and ramsey comes in and takes monster shots but keeps tossing the ball around. He is Tough and Strong. Unfortunately he is as dumb as dog shit.

Spurrier is a good coach. every coach needs time. no one turns a team around that quickly in the salary cap era.

Even gibbs is having major issues adjusting...
the irony is that spurrier put everyone in a passing route while gibbs is putting everyone to block and they both are about even statistically.


now if you are one of those fools that goes by stats/records to measure success, barry switzer wants to show you his superbowl ring....

Re: Gibbs vs. Spurrier -- stats about even?

Spurrier was a joke. Gibbs is a legend. No matter how Gibbs' tenure figures there is NO comparison. Sorry folks, none. 'What have you done for me lately' is shortened to 'what have you done'. End of discussion.
