Gibbs Done

http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/7...

Gibbs is retiring.  

Honestly, I'm pretty suprised.  I thought that the success that they had this year would lead us to see him for the next couple of years.  In a way, it kind of reminds me of our situation with Parcells.  Parcells was great at putting teams together, but seemed to struggle in dealing with this generation of players, as evidenced by how many people were happy to see him go.  It seems like Gibbs has done a pretty good job of getting them into a better situation than they were in a few years ago (still not out of the woods), but he has made some key errors in managing games and can tend to get conservative when it comes to play-calling.  It's gotten them to where they are, but change is probably not a bad thing for this team.

I kind of hoped he'd stay because I don't think Gibbs outcoaches people very often, and that's the type of guy you want coaching your arch-rival.  Here's hoping DannyBoy picks someone worse..
