I first heard about this around midnight (JT "The Brick" show) on Tuesday, and when I woke up yesterday (while I was still half asleep) I did for a half sec wonder if maybe I had just been dreaming that Joe Gibbs was back, lol :D

I've lived here all 35 years of my life, and seen the best and worst of the 'Skins during that time. I don't think I've ever been as excited about a sports story as I am about all of this :D

Danny did two things by getting Gibbs: 1) dmitted he doesn't know what he's doing and 2) proved once and for all his committment to the fans and winning. I think the biggest element Gibbs brings back to the Skins is class. He's the classiest coach I've ever been priveleged to watch. When he retired and I subsequently read about his personal life crumbling because of his dedication to the Skins, it broke my heart. He never let on to the fans, while he was coaching, how much personal sacrifice he was making for us. Now it appears he's ready to make those sacrifices again.

Welcome back, coach.

This is the site I've been looking for and didn't find until today's Washingtonpost.com chat. Great job today and great job on the website- I'm going to watch and participate in discussions very carefully. Good to be a part of the virtual fanclub.

Uh, was this before or after you were married that she became a cowboys fan. I take this sh!t to seriously to marry anyone else in the division. My wife is a peripheral football fan and likes the skins mainly because their my team. My daughter is starting to become a Redskin nut and she is trying to understand the diety that is Joe Gibbs. I have the entire superbowls 22 and 26 on tape so we will partake in a history lesson this weekend.

On the Snyder/Gibbs coming relationship...

I've seen Snyder smile, I've seen him smirk, I think I've even seen him chuckle, but I have never seen him laugh and cavort like he did at the press conference yesterday. As skinsfaninroanoke pointed out, he's just another one of us who grew up adoring Joe Gibbs... it will be very tough for him to stand there and say Ii think I know more about this personnel move than you do MR.GIBBS.

you see... there's a huge difference here... Snyder knows that he don't know squat compared to Joe... that's why he got him... that's why he won't step on his toes... and that's why he was laughing like the schoolboy who just got away with dunking a girl's pigtails in an inkwell.

Who thought anyone would be able to forge a PARTNERSHIP with DS? But that's exactly what Gibbs said... and if he said it, it's gold.

The trauma is over... the tide has turned... we're heading down the backstretch... Snyder has learned, and we're going to the bowl soon because of it.


Whooooooooooooooooooooooo!

Gibbs admitted in a post-press conference interview that his position as President gives him the final say on all roster decisions. Snyder has finally relinquished the reigns... for good. Cerrato apparently is Snyder's biggest enabler and when it came to personnel decisions with Spurrier, Cerrato invariably sided with Snyder. Not gonna happen any more.

Guys, read all of the WP articles- they're terrific. There isn't a single skeptic in Skinsville today. Michael Wilbon wrote a glowing, pro-Snyder piece. I have to agree with him this time on Snyder.

Although we might end up eating those words if Gibbs turns him into another Clark, but with more speed HS :)
