    Falcons | Gibbs not retained
    Wed, 31 Jan 2007 09:32:30 -0800

    Steve Wyche, of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, reports the Atlanta Falcons have decided to part ways with team consultant Alex Gibbs.

    Not sure why he wont be there, but I think the Pack have to try to get this guy in here to help with the young o-l

    all the coaches spots are filled I believe. I guess he could be a 'consultant' here too.

    When you were a kid, and got scared, didn't you ever get the "Heebie Bee Gees?"
    I know that the "GEE" stood for their last name, Gibb. They were all brothers, so i think it was the "Brothers Gibb." Thus, BEE GEES.

    Cheesey has it right "Brothers Gibb"

    Back on topic: I say there is no reason to add Alex Gibb to the payroll.

    I thought the title said Should the Pack hire this guy, it doesnt say

    Bee Gees Reunion Tour does it? Or am I reading it wrong?

    This is the guy that perfected the zone blockling scheme I think it wouldnt be a bad thing to get the guy in here even if it is just for training camp...

    Get those guys to learn from the best

    The Packers do not need Alex Gibbs. They have enough of their own problems.

    What exactly is the problem with Alex Gibbs? He's the most knowledgeable man out there with respect to zone blocking. Bringing him in as a consultant surely couldn't hurt.

    The Packers coaching staff is set with promotions at OC and OL.

    This would not be the time to undermine Philbin and Campen.

    Fair enough, but if Gibbs comes on as a 'consultant', then wouldn't it give Philbin and Campen the best person to bounce their ideas off of, not to mention getting advice from Gibbs to improve their methods of teaching?

    IMO, I think Philbin and Campen should be given their shot without any interference.
