    So Easterbrook is upset the "genteel" Joe Gibbs got the score, allegedly, "run up" on him? I'll note Gibbs said he had no problems. Maybe this is why:

    January 2, 1983: Leading 28-0 IN THE 4TH QUARTER vs. the St. Louis Cardinals, Gibbs has starting QB Joe Theismann throw a TD pass to starting running back Joe Washington to make the score 35-0.

    November 20, 1984: Up 39-6 in the 4th Quarter vs. the LA Rams, GIbbs kicks a field goal to make the score 42-6

    November 3, 1985: Up 34-3 in the 4th Quarter, Gibbs has Mark Mosely kick a 48 yard field goal to make it 37-3

    January 31, 1988 (Super Bowl XXII): Up 35-10 in the 4th quarter, Gibbs has starting running back Timothy Smith (who rushed for over 200 yards that day) score a TD. Starting QB Doug Williams is still in the game. That pushes the score to 42-10.

    September 1, 1991: Up 42-0 in the 4th Quarter, Gibbs has Mark Moseley kick a FG to make the score 45-0. The previous score was a 38 yard pass from starting QB Mark Rypien to starting WR Gary Clark to push the score from 35-0 to 42-0.

    November 10, 1991: Up 35-17 in the 4th Quarter vs. Atlanta, Gibbs has starting QB Rypien throw a 82 yard pass to Gary Clark to make the score 42-17. Next time they get the ball, Rypien throws a 64 yard bomb to Hall of Fame WR Art Monk to push the score to 49-17.

    November 29, 1992: Up 27-3 in the 4th Quarter vs. Phoenix, Gibbs has starting QB Rypien thow a 31 yard TD to Gary Clark to make the score 34-3. Later, Gibbs throws to Hall of Famer Monk for another TD to make the score 41-3.

    Seriously, who gives a crap! :rolleyes:

    Why try to talk bad about Gibbs, he had no issue with what we did. Let it go.

    This went over your head. It isn't a Gibbs-bashing post. If I have no problem with anything Belichick has done, then I don't have any with what Gibbs did either. If you read the post, you'd see I noted Gibbs didn't have an issue.

    Its directed at the media who is claiming Gibbs is different, not at him specifically. Maybe a finer point that is harder for some to grasp. But that is the point. Its media hypocrisy and inaccuracy, not Gibbs. THAT was the point you missed.

    Actually-the big knock with Gibbs II in Washington is that if he has ONLY a THREE pt lead in the 4th, that's when he'll call off the dogs.:confused:
