Hall of Famer Joe Gibbs’ second stint with the Washington Redskins has been quite disappointing but he vows to come back next year and try again.
Joe Gibbs plans to return next season as coach of the Washington Redskins, he told reporters Monday. “There is no equivocation. I plan on going forward and being the coach again,” Gibbs said. “As long as I feel like this is where I’m supposed to be, I’m going to be here.” Gibbs has two years remaining on his five-year, $25-million contract.
The team had hoped bringing back Gibbs, who had three Super Bowl titles, would bring the franchise back to those glory days. But after making the playoffs last season, the Redskins are 4-8 and out of the running for a repeat apperance. Gibbs, who is enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, is 20-24 in his return to the sidelines.
As a Cowboys fan living in the DC area, it’s amusing to hear the criticism of Gibbs, undeniably one of the great coaches of the modern era. Owner/GM Daniel Snyder’s fantasy football approach to personnel and coaching is probably more to fault than the game having “passed Gibbs by.” And it doesn’t help that the NFC East is loaded with talent and excellent coaching.
