OK there's a picture of some guy in a bright red shirt over on the Texans website. So what ?
But this weekend I've seen GM Smith, Kubiak, little Shanny, & DC Smith on TV
all hyping the Draft, but no Gibbs. Not even a quote by Gibbs about the thinking on "reaching" for his guy, OLT Duane Brown. Truth is I've never seen
Gibbs qoted locally in the media since his alleged hire ? And definitely haven't seen him even in a photo standing next to some local landmark like Reliant stadium maybe ?
I dunno, but did they just hire the legend of Alex gibbs ? And for all I know the real thing is with Elvis right now ?

Actually Gibbs is too busy preparing to completely remold our running game to cure cancer with his tears. I'm not saying he couldn't cure cancer with his tears. Only that he's got more important things to do.

Other lesser coaches waste valuable time talking to the media. That's why they don't coach offensive lines that lead the league in rushing every single year they exist. Alex Gibbs doesn't do interviews. In fact he never leaves Reliant Park. He works 22 hours a day and spends the other two in a regenerative chamber filled with a vitamin based "nutrient soup" that takes the place of eating and sleep at the same time. While he does this he meditates on different approaches to running the football and reviews player profiles of children currently in Pee Wee football who will one day project to block in the zone offense at the professional level.

Alex Gibbs IS "The most interesting man in the world".

Rumor has it that a rookie Denver OL spoke to the media once when Gibbs clearly told him not to do that. In the middle of the interview you could see a blur that looked kind of like Gibbs chopblock the unlucky OL who subsequently died instantly.

I know I read somewhere in the past that Gibbs has a policy of not speaking to the media which also applies to his linemen as well.

There is now an NFL policy that prohibits imposing a media blackout on the players, but you're correct, prior to the implementation of that policy, Gibbs did prohibit it in Denver.

There is no similar policy regarding Assistant Coaches, and some HC's (Belichick & Parcells for example) prohibit most if not all contact with the media. I don't think Kubes has any such policy, but clearly, Gibbs is in self-imposed media exile.

Interesting (but not surprising) sidenote - The Denver O-Linemen media blockade came to an end when Salaam was with them, and simply refused to comply with it. I'm not sure, but I believe that Gibbs was semi-retired during the time Ephraim was with the Bronco's. He had a role, but I don't think he was the main O-line coach any longer.

Alex Gibbs, a running back and defensive back for the Wildcats in the early 1960s, twice led Davidson in rushing, with 278 yards as a sophomore and 259 yards as a junior. He was also the top kickoff return man for those two seasons with ten returns for 229 yards and eight returns for 174 yards respectively. As a senior, he was used more as a receiver, finishing second on the squad with fourteen catches for 105 yards, plus 110 yards on the ground and 188 return yards on kickoffs.

This is one of my favorite threads of all time... but to get back to Gibbs, apparently he does exist.

Today at the Texans Draft Luncheon Kubiak made a statement when speaking. He was speaking about how two of the biggest successes this offseason were acquiring Alex Gibbs and Ray Rhodes. He said how the media gives him credit for luring and bringing Alex Gibbs out of retirement and got Ray Rhodes to join the team as well. What he said next was a big surprise I had never heard before. Kubiak said that he never called either one of them. That both Gibbs and Rhodes were the ones that called Kubiak . They called him because they liked where the team was heading and asked if there was a place for them in this organization. That made me feel really awesome about this team. So maybe Gibbs really does exist! LOL

No but Alex Gibbs once told Mike Shanahan that he could make Michael Jackson a first ballot HOF RT in one year.

Gibbs reputation is such that the Broncos front office was trying to arrange a meeting with Michael at Neverland Ranch to discuss a very lucrative UDFA contract before the day was out.

Gibbs had to break the news to them that he was only joking and that he could make Michael Jackson a HOF RT in two training camps, not one.

I've met Alex Gibbs. Gary Kubiak and Rick Smith brought him into my restaurant and talked for about 5-6 hours a day or two before they officially hired Gibbs. I can say definitively that:

1) Kubiak was giddy after the meeting. I congratulated him (I'll confess that I didn't know what Gibbs looked like either or who the third guy at the table was). I figured out who he was when Kubiak thanked me for helping the Texans hire someone that was going to change the team, someone he coached with back in the day. He seriously looked like a 16 year old kid that found his dad's Playboy stash. Grin from ear to ear.

2) If you ever do see Gibbs, buy him a Bud Light. He drank a LOT of it while talking with Smithiak. He isn't the world's most talkative guy, I'll admit. He thanked me when I served him (as well as when I said welcome to Houston), but had little more to say. I suspect Gibbs could've been a head coach anywhere he chose, but prefers the anonymity of being the brains behind the operation.

A little known story relates to the Slaughter of the Innocents. When Herod sent his soldiers out to kill the firstborn of Israel, a small army actually found Jesus and were about to slaughter him when Alex Gibbs appeared and cut blocked the lot of them and saved Jesus' life. Alex Gibbs just happened to be there because he was out scouting young left tackles and thought JC looked like a top prospect.

Seems a certain Dr. King just about plagerized a very important and historical speech...

"I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of zone blocking: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all defensive linemen and linebackers are created equal and cut-blocked the same."

-Alex Gibbs, August 28, 1963

Alex Gibbs can smell fear. But what most people don't know is that Alex Gibbs can also smell hope. For instance, he can smell: "I hope I don't get cut-blocked by Alex Gibbs."

Very few people that Alexander the Great was actually Alex Gibbs. He had his phalanx of troops cut blocked and leg whipped their way through the Persian Army and into India and only stopped because he was getting bored. He started the story that he had died so he could retire a while.

Actually, his name was Alex the Gibbs, but historians, early manifestations of today's talking heads, screwed it up (just as today's talking heads do) and started that Alexander the Great crap. That screw up is the very reason why Alex Gibbs refuses to talk to the press to this very day.

And let's not forget that "gibbs" in ancient Greek could be roughly translated into "cut block".

Yeah, I'm going to do a write up on that on the blog.

It was one of the key parts of the speech he gave to folks at the Texans draft luncheon. Both Gibbs and Ray Rhodes contacted the Texans.

Because they wanted to be a part of what is happening here. [goosebumps]

Does anyone here remember ever hearing in 5 years (4 playing and the year before the Texans took the field) of someone picking up a phone and calling Dom Capers about getting in on some of the exciting things going on here in Houston?

Maybe Joe Pendry? I don't remember how he landed on our doorstep.

He went to a buffalo roundup in South Dakota, took in a few Broadway plays, toured the Smithsonian and London and Chicago and visited what used to be a leper colony in Hawaii.

But none of it matched the excitement and fulfillment of the NFL.

So at 66, Alex Gibbs will be back on the field this week, barking at the Houston Texans' offensive linemen the way he used to bark at guys up and down the trenches in Denver.

There is now nothing but smoke and ash at what was once South Dakota, Broadway, the Smithsonian, London, Chicago, and Hawaii.

It has been theorized that the dinosaurs are extinct due to a giant meteor. That is true, if you consider Alex Gibbs a giant meteor.

Alex Gibbs begs to differ. That quote actually belongs to Alex Gibbs and it originally went like this....

"I love to think of an offensive line as an unlimited cut-blocking machine, through which God speaks to us every down of every series"

George Washington Carver stole that line from Alex Gibbs and as payback for stealing and changing his words Gibbs leg whipped the "Carver" right off the end of his name, hence Wolf was correct in the way he spelled it.

In Alex Gibbs world that's the way it goes. If you want to argue about it Coach Gibbs welcomes you onto the field and may the best man win.

I'd back away slowly while apologizing if I were you.

The legend of assistant head coach Alex Gibbs is developing into mythical proportions. People know about the zone blocking scheme he is installing. They have heard that Gibbs played a huge role in drafting left tackle Duane Brown in the first round. They have caught on to the buzz about Gibbs’ intensity and tough talk during practice.

But the coach hasn’t said one word to the media. It’s almost like he disappears once cameras and digital recorders emerge. Gibbs has told several reporters who follow the Texans closely that he will talk when he is comfortable with Houston’s media.* That time just hasn’t come yet.

* remember what I said about Historians

I wonder what she'd think if she read this thread.

After extensive research, I have discovered some interestin facts about Alex Gibbs:

The Big Bang was actually Alex Gibbs leg whipping God in the face.

Alex Gibbs invented the Caesarean section when he chop blocked his way out of his monther's womb.

When the Boogeyman goes to sleep every night, he checks his closet for Alex Gibbs.

There is no theory of evolution, just a list of creatures Alex Gibbs has not zone blocked.

A man stopped Alex Gibbs on the street and asked him to list 100 Alex Gibbs facts. Unamused, Alex Gibbs raised one eyebrow with such force that the man disintegrated.

Alex Gibbs is the reason why Waldo is hiding.
