Both Doc Walker and Jeff Bostic (former Redskins) can recall, word-for-word, some of what Joe Gibbs would say at the beginning of every training camp. They both talk of his legendary calm. Bostic says he remembers Gibbs losing his temper twice in 12 seasons. And they, among others, cite Gibbs’s spiritual faith as being instrumental in getting his teams to believe.

“We all know about Joe’s great belief in God,” Bostic said. “And I think he has a way of imposing his belief. Whether you’re a believer or not, or you think you are or not, he has you believing in something larger than yourself.”

Still, Gibbs’s trademark characteristics — unwavering faith, being extremely organized, his remarkable calm and his ability to accept all the blame but take no credit — have created the kind of environment that make players want to follow his lead. And the Redskins have.
