Joe Gibbs was like a lot of Redskins fans.
A 10-6 record, an NFC East championship and a playoff berth in 2012 made the three-time Super Bowl champion expect continued success for Washington.
In an interview with Larry Michael Friday afternoon on Super Bowl XLVIII Radio Row, Gibbs said a 3-13 season in 2013 reinforced a simple message.
“Two years ago we win the division and we think we’re on our way,” Gibbs said.
“But it shows you I think, Larry, how hard professional sports are. One year doesn’t guarantee you the next. You look at the Giants this year and what happened to them. The people inside our division had such a tough year. It shows you how hard the sport is in the NFL, and it only takes small things to get you off (track).”
Watch the full interview to hear how Gibbs wound up on “The Colbert Report,” what Gibbs thinks of Jay Gruden and the common thread between running Joe Gibbs Racing and managing the Redskins.
