Joe Gibbs vs. the NFC East
After my item yesterday that noted Joe Gibbs's Redskins were the only NFC East team below .500 since his return,
hundreds of readers a few readers one reader said I should also look at his inter-divisional record. Done. It's not pretty. Here are the NFC East inter-divisional records since Gibbs's return:
And I even did that reader one better; I looked at every team's inter-divisional record over the past three-plus years. Here's who has a worse divisional record than Gibbs's Redskins in that span: the Dolphins, Browns, Texans, Raiders and Lions. Illustrious company, indeed.
And then, because I really had nothing better to do, I compiled the regular season records of every NFL team since Gibbs's return. That's 60 games, which seems a pretty fair sample size. Those are after the jump.
The Good Mediocres
The Mediocre Mediocres
The Bad Mediocres
The Bay Area
I know NFL teams change coaches the way Gilbert Arenas changes nicknames, but it's worth pointing out that I've put the Redskins in a group that includes the 11 worst teams in the NFL since 2004, roughly one-third of the league. Of those 11 teams, nine have made coaching changes since 2004, attempting to leave the bottom third behind. In other words, of the NFL head coaches who have been in place as long as Gibbs, only one has an inferior record.
