A Day With Joe Gibbs At The Races

Posted by Brian Tinsman on June 5, 2013 – 4:16 pm

IMG_4713Former Redskins head coach Joe Gibbs was recently named the No. 9 Coach in NFL history and was placed as one of the four faces on the proverbial Redskins Mt. Rushmore. That’s a pretty impressive life for anyone, but only tells half the story for one of the greatest sports leaders ever.

While still a member of the NFL coaching community, Gibbs created his very own NASCAR racing team and juggled both responsibilities for the final year of his first coaching tenure. When he left the NFL, he invested his free time in the day-to-day operation of Joe Gibbs Racing, and has only ceased to do so when returning to the NFL for his second stint with the Redskins.

While he has created some crossover fans between his Redskins and JGR brands, not many Redskins fans have seen the stoic gridiron commander on the back end of pit road. Last Sunday at Dover International Speedway, I was afforded the opportunity to observe Gibbs in action as he oversaw Denny Hamlin (11), Kyle Busch (18) and Matt Kenseth (20) on the Monster Mile.

A few weeks back ESPN released its top-300 (not sure why 300) fantasy football players for the 2013 season.

Scan from the top of the list down and you’d quickly find your first Redskin—Alfred Morris at No. 9.

Morris transcendence from little-known FAU running back to Robert Griffin III’s favorite handoff has been well documented, but his rise in the fantasy world may be even more impressive.

Undrafted to “Waiver Wire Pickup of the Year”.

Now NFL.com has released their own version of fantasy rankings and while No. 46 is still near the top, he isn’t in the top-10.

Discredit Morris and he’ll prove you wrong.

Storylines To Follow In 2013: WAS-PHI

Last year when the Washington Redskins were sitting at 3-6 entering the Bye Week, almost no one outside of the DMV predicted they would climb out of the division cellar.

One seven-game winning streak later and those who said such things are now biting their tongues reading about the defending NFC East champs.

With the Philadelphia Eagles on the slate twice in the last two months of the season, the Redskins should have never been counted out. After all, the Redskins have recorded more wins against the Eagles (81) than any other team.

As part of the NFL’s opened weekend extravaganza, the 79th edition of Redskins-Eagles will be on Monday Night Football. Here are just some storylines to follow.

So What If He Didn’t Use His First Name

When David Jones decided to retire from the NFL after a sack-filled 14-year career with the Los Angeles Rams, San Diego Chargers and Washington Redskins, his name would eventually find its way to Canton, Ohio—home of the Pro Football Hall of Fame of course.

One problem—you might get an odd look on the face of a staff member working at the Hall of Fame if you ask for David Jones.

Request his nickname instead—Deacon.

It is after all the single greatest nickname in league history.
