Joe Gibbs: Happy

Man, look how happy the guy is in this video. Amazing. He's so happy the cliches are gone, and he's being all honest-like.

* The Old Joe Gibbs thought his team was always hopelessly out-manned. The Happy Joe Gibbs admits his team was hot hot hot.

"I was so convinced that our football team was gonna go all the way....I was really really convinced that this might be a chance for us to go all the way."

* The Old Joe Gibbs never ever said anything controversial. This Happy Joe Gibbs hints that Seattle might be fiddling with its crowd noise.

"Tough place to go and play, I can tell you that. The crowd noise out there, there's still something about that that doesn't sound right to me. I mean, you can't even hear yourself think."

(Seattle fans, he's clearly insulting your very existence, and you should get outraged and make signs and call radio shows right this second.)

* The Old Joe Gibbs often followed the Universal Coaching Rule that mandates you never acknowledge the fact that your eyes might have accidentally alighted on the words written by the media dorks. This Happy Joe Gibbs admits to being a voracious news consumer, which places him perfectly in the Washington Post's bedrock demographic:

"Then of course the articles and everything that were written....I just can't tell you what an awesome experience that was, to think about all the positive things that were said about me and my time here this second go around in coaching."

* The Old Joe Gibbs would find a way to tie everything back to God. This Happy Joe Gibbs....well....

"I've got to tell you, it shows you how awesome God is, for this reason: six weeks ago, after that Buffalo game, the things I shared with you guys and how I was feeling, I said to myself at that point, 'I doubt there will ever be another positive thing said about my coaching career, ever.' And when you stop and, just five weeks later, see what was written and the nice things that were said about me stepping down and my time here coaching, I've got to say, only God could have done that."

Well, God and Mike Wise, but point taken. The best news coming out of this video was that Gibbs will continue to offer us his spiritual messages after he leaves his Ashburn office, meaning he and Nick Young will still be partners in vlog.
