Gibbs looking forward to 2006

ORLANDO, Fla. -- After restoring luster to the Washington Redskins last season with their first playoff victory in six years, Hall of Fame coach Joe Gibbs is relaxed and upbeat about what's ahead.

"The more you get a rhythm going, you're not quite as worried about everything," Gibbs said today at the annual NFL spring meetings. "We had a miserable first year, and that's real hard on you. So you go in the second year knowing you've got to make something happen. Being able to get 10 wins, that helps a lot. It gives the whole organization confidence.

"If we hadn't gotten into the playoffs, it would've been a real downer. Getting in the playoffs was somewhat of a turning point for us."

The Redskins have maintained that momentum since the signing period began on March 11, adding potential starting receivers Antwaan Randle El and Brandon Lloyd, talented safety Adam Archuleta and pass-rusher Andre Carter. The only losses from the 2005 regulars were inconsistent linebacker LaVar Arrington, safety Ryan Clark and blocking tight end Robert Royal.
