NFL Network's new approach to Joe Gibbs
As part of the network's "Football Life" series, the series debuted at 9: 00 on Friday --
It includes dozens of moments to make a long-time red fan smile.
When Gibbs was asked about his ability to motivate players, an unexpected person came and talked about the prizes he gave to players who performed well the day before on Monday: Sony recorder, parking space, big-
TV, audio, small cash-
Reward players who can easily afford their own Sony recorder.
But this stunt seems to work.
"We got an award, I don't know --
"I don't know if I can say this," Gibbs said in the movie . ".
"Can you say" ball "on TV ? " As it turns out, you can say, so Gibbs mentioned the necklace --
Create for the type of person the hardest on the team-
Necklace attached to leather bag with two balls inside
Now, in 2017, the weekly Pilling display will bring guaranteed viral moments on social media, hundreds of mid-game jokes, and a strong sphere between fans and media members
However, the only report we can find about this over the same period was in 1996, before the establishment of the coaching Hall of Fame, Richard Justice of the Washington Post wrote about Gibbs motivation: "Every week, the Reds name a ball player, saying he has shown extraordinary resilience and courage.
Joe Jacoby may be the ultimate ball skin, but there are many others: Byner, Monk, Warren Bostik, green fairy tale, Rypien, Darrell Green and Martin Mayhew.
The award seems trivial, but Gibbs believes it is valuable to point out a person's achievements to his peers.
"Believe me, these guys want to be recognized in front of the people playing next to them," he said . ".
Their opinions are the most important.
"So on Tuesday I asked Gibbs to tell me more about the ceremony.
"Let me tell you this is a prize worth cherishing," he said with a smile . ".
"The rule is this: you have to get all the coaches to vote for you.
There can be no objection to winning the ball Award.
To be honest, these guys, you'll realize once you start training players what they really think and care about.
They care about their teammates.
So in front of teammates, getting such an award means everything to them.
It's not necessarily money, you know, but it's a special recognition that they're one of the strongest people and get the most respect from people.
This is the most important thing in football.
"He said he didn't keep any Pilling, although he might find a set if needed, and he said the equipment crew made the Pilling for the staff.
There are other awards, of course, although perhaps not so colorful.
"It's a big deal that we give men various awards on Monday," Gibbs said . ". "I had La-Z-Boys. I had three La-Z-
Boy: offensive, defensive and special team.
Special team players this week, offensive and defensive players this week are sitting in La-Z-Boys;
The rest of us are sitting in a hard back chair. The second go-
We have parking.
If you are a player this week, you will have a brass nameplate next to the building with your number written on it.
You will award a variety of awards like that.
I think it is very important to be recognized in front of your peers.
"In fact, after mentioning some of Gibbs's first victories, as early as October 19:" We were going to give a good player with only one portable TV, Gibbs said, "But we finally gave up five. "
I called the person who provided these things and I divided him into five.
We waited so long for everything upstairs.
We said it all.
"In addition to these 5 TV sets, the players received sports coats, free dinners, watches and shirts.
Gibbons reward 24 people
The victory over Chicago was his first victory as head coach, a match for his team.
While the Pilling award is colorful, it doesn't seem to violate Gibbs's ban on swearing, which is also a laugh in the movie.
Out of curiosity, I asked Gibbs if he had been cursed in his life.
He said: "I am sure I did this when I was young, but after I gave my life to Christ, I just said, 'Hey, I can't do this.
It's great that you can coach a football team.
A lot of people will say that you can't do this without swearing.
I have said something, though.
Let me tell you, football players are so interesting.
You think it's up to them to decide.
Like one thing I once said, I would say, 'Man, I have the Red Army.
You know what I mean, when I'm upset about something, I say, 'Man, I 've got the Reds.
"So I will hear the players running in practice and we will let them do the wind sprint and they will help each other, 'I have to tell you something and I got the Reds.
They are all joking about the funny things you say.
I think I said something interesting.
