Gibbs long has been one to avoid raising his voice, but his stentorian address to the team — audible by media members down the hall at Redskins Park — on the Wednesday before the Panthers game was a mild surprise to some, even if the Redskins had lost 5-of-6 entering Week 12. The team is pretty badly banged up right now, as many around the league are. Yet, Gibbs has felt that his team hasn’t given its best effort, even if the coach will fall on the sword before throwing his players under the bus 10 times out of 10. The timing of the tirade is intriguing. It probably has a lot to do with the plight of the Redskins, but a team source says it also occurred one week after QB Jason Campbell’s insertion into the starting lineup. With Campbell having had a game under his belt, Gibbs likely felt more liberated to challenge his team. The tactic may have worked, as the Redskins defeated the Panthers in Week 12, ending a two-game losing streak. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
