Joe Gibbs Says Goodbye

joe gibbs onthebuzzer.comWashington Redskins head coach Joe Gibbs called it quits on Tuesday.  Gibbs had been with the Redskins for 4 of his 5 year contract but decided to step down early, citing family reasons. I’m saddened to see Gibbs leave.  He was one of the links to the days of old.  Plus, it seemed that the Washington Redskins had turned a new leaf.  I don’t know, maybe it’s just me and I’m still emotional about the death of Sean Taylor and the ‘skins’ Cinderella story.  Then again, maybe Gibbs leaving is a good thing.  Time to rebuild this franchise, again, clean house.  Get some new players, trade away some old ones.  Only time will tell, but thanks for memories old timer.

Washington Redskins: Angel Looking Down on Them

hog.jpgIf you don’t think Sean Taylor is watching his team, think again.  The Washington Redskins are going to the playoffs folks.  Sure they beat up on the Dallas Cowboys 2nd team.  But who cares??? After dealing with the death of Sean Taylor and losing to the Bills at home in week 13, the ‘skins have won 4 in a row and are heading to the post-season.  I’m not saying they’re winning it all, but in the NFC, anyone’s got a chance.  Let’s not forget they still have 1,000 yard rusher Clinton Portis, QB Todd Collins who hasn’t thrown an interception in 10 years, WR Santana Moss and a decent defense.  Watch out for those hogs or hoggettes or whatever…
