Listen: Doug Williams, Broncos, Joe Gibbs discussed on The MMQB Podcast with Peter King
"Terry close. But we see coaches differently back. Then it's it's a little bit different. Yeah. I'm with Bob glower, the author of guts genius. The story of three unlikely coaches who came to dominate the NFL Grand Central publishing. So I want to end with two other issues. Okay. I I've always always been fascinated at how Joe Gibbs took a bunch of middle class guys and kinda lower middle-class guys. I think the only comparable thing, basically is Bill Belichick and how he takes a bunch of Kyle van noise and goes twelve and four every year. But the difference is Bella chick at Tom Brady. You know, and and Joe Gibbs had Mark Rippin and Jay Schrader in Joe size men, and Doug Williams, and and not to criticize. Is any of those guys, but they're not they weren't in their day considered to be franchise quarterbacks. So what do you think made gives so good? I think gives us ability to analyze situations and think through situations and kind of put pieces together is what made him special, and, you know, just Bostick the longtime center of the Redskins told me this story about what happened in the Super Bowl when Doug Williams wanted. You know, the Broncos were winning ten nothing early on and get something's wrong and gives just didn't really realize what what the Broncos were were truly doing. And he pulled aside Bostick leap first quarter and say what happened. What what's what's wrong in Boston was tone the room like version of the forty six that we receive fence that we haven't seen before? And I you know, I don't know what they're doing and confuse in the middle. And they're pulling stumps. It's just not working so box describes it stands there. And you had this this position. He would assume where you just fold his arms put his restaurant chain on his hand us cheek. And just there, you know, there for ten seconds. He goes, all right. Here's a and then he kinda lied how they were going to change you into. They did change your, you know, they went back to that counter. Trey and went back to the heart of what the they used to do. So. Well, right midstream Boston said, I couldn't believe since that he made. And of course, it was that record sitting second quarter where Williams became the MVP and the and they blew the Broncos. And it was that was one example of how Joe Gibbs could think through a situation and those pieces that he had you're right. They those quarterbacks were not close to the whole thing was a really good quarterback shift. He had mobility. But but gets had the ability to kind of just put the pieces in the right places. And he knew spacing he knew blocking, you know, having been an offensive line coach at San Diego State, and he just kinda knew how to put things together. And I think that's really separate him. And and and that is ability to win with quarterbacks. We're not whole quarterbacks as you look at every hall of fame. Coach all had those franchise caliber quarterbacks. You know, you could argue that for sells the only one, you know, comparable to give because he wanted with SIMS there's all and who've been so that to me is is what just we gotta find solutions problems that, you know, confronted him and out because he's so many hours trying to figure out sleeping the also have meetings of just went on for hours, the the Oland with this, Bob, the one thing. That I take from your book in the one thing from knowing these three guys over the years is how you know, they say that I somebody told me this a long time ago when I've adopted it for my own every New England Patriots game plan is a snowflake every one of them is really really different because they judge how they have to go against the opposing defense the opposing offense and only then do they decide exactly what they're gonna do that week.."
