Hail to Joe Gibbs!!!

Jed, we Washington Redskins fans have had precious little to cheer about in recent years. I was utterly delighted at the Gibbs news. For a whole generation of Washingtonians, Gibbs was the embodiment of talent and reliability–a true master of the game, a guy who could bring more out of a given group of players than any other coach. (Look, for example, at the results he got with strike-period replacement players.) Welcome back, Joe! We missed you. (PS to all conservatives, even those who don’t like the Redskins: You have to love Joe, because he’s been a leader of champions in NASCAR, and is a red-state kind of guy in other ways too.)
