It’s always awesome when legendary Washington Redskins head coach Joe Gibbs stops by, which is exactly what happened today at Redskins Park.
Gibbs — who led the Redskins to three Super Bowl titles in the 1980s and early 1990s — was filming a segment with Larry Michael, the Voice of the Redskins, for “Redskins Nation.”
Gibbs was in the area helping push a financial literacy program given to members of the Redskins through nearby Strayer University. But, before Gibbs and Michael got to talking about that program and Gibbs’ recent racing endeavors, the coach was asked about the current Redskins team, which improved to 7-6 yesterday with a dramatic, 31-28 overtime win over the Baltimore Ravens.
“Let’s do this. Let’s talk about the Redskins,” Gibbs said. “ I told them it’s a good time to visit, right now, to visit Redskins Park. We’re hot, man. It’s great. Everybody, I think, down there at Joe Gibbs Racing, everybody is a Redskinner … and we always follow every single play thing that’s happening and every single game. It’s fun.”
Here’s some behind-the-scenes video of Gibbs’ visit today:
“Redskins Nation” airs at 5:30 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday on Comcast SportsNet.
