    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 ?

    Gibbs doesn't speak to the media, he's too busy curing cancer with his tears.

    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".

    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.

    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.

    He's a cyborg from the future and stays away from the media so he won't tip his hand.

    Have you ever seen Alex Gibbs and Vince Young in the same place at the same time?

    Houston, again.
    I don't think the team wants him talking to the media. To quote Bob McNair, "he has colorfull language". I expect mothers will be covering their kids ears for 1/2 mile around the practice field from what I hear.

    For what it's worth, I did some extensive research on Alex Gibbs and found out who he really is...

    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.
