redskins facepalmSnyder incapable of hiring coach or GM, might allow beloved old man to do it for him. The latest rumor surrounding the woebegone Redskins is that Dan Snyder could bring Joe Gibbs back to oversee the franchise a la Bill Parcells in Miami. The biggest difference between the two is that Parcells has always been singularly focused on the NFL whereas Gibbs spends his time running a NASCAR team and spreading the word of Christ. Noble endeavors no doubt, but the fact remains that Gibbs isn’t really in tune with the goings on around the league. After all, this is the same guy who reacted to Snyder’s enthusiasm regarding Jim Zorn as a head coaching candidate by declaring, “That’s neat.” FML. [PFT]

Update: ESPN 980 reports that a Gibbs return is unlikely.
