Former Redskins head coach Joe Gibbs has had Super Bowl success that needs no introduction or qualification–he is simply one of the best of all time.

If any Redskins player should understand tonight’s Super Bowl matchup, it’s linebacker London Fletcher.
Beginning his illustrious career in St. Louis, his Rams played Brady’s Patriots in Super Bowl XXXVI, exactly a decade ago. In a shocking upset (which has since been questioned in Spygate), the Patriots pulled out a late victory, launching the first dynasty of the 21st century.
From St. Louis, Fletcher left to join the Bills, where he faced the Patriots twice a year for five years, solidifying his rivalry with New England.
After his time in Buffalo, Fletcher brought his talents to Washington, where he became a part of the storied Redskins-Giants tradition–two teams that have played the other 157 times. And after taking on these two teams a combined three times this season, he has a pretty good idea of what he’s looking at across the line of scrimmage.
