Over the coming weeks, The Redskins Blog will be providing you with a different look at the franchise’s past.

Unlike Throwback Thursday where we’ve looked at important moments on the gridiron against an upcoming opponent, this series will examine some of the lighter moments as we go through all of the photos stored at Redskins Park in Loudoun County, Va.

As we’ve searched through the photo files over the last month, it’s become clear that Redskins coaches enjoyed having their photos taken in the more obscure parts of Redskins Park.

This one for instance — taken on July 22, 1982 — features legendary head coach Joe Gibbs having a private chat with the equipment manager Jay Brunetti in one of the walk-in closets at the old Redskins Park.

One of the things that’s fascinating with these shots, which also include the ones taken in the bathroom, is how the given photographer received access to these more intimate meetings.

Because there is no caption for this photo, the topic of discussion is left to our imagination.

What would Gibbs be telling Brunetti?

Keep in mind training camp was likely right around the corner and equipment would need to be packed up properly. It wouldn’t be hard to believe the two are determining how all those pads and helmets should get transported and identified.

What’s more out of date: the helmet face masks or the short shorts?
