The Detroit Free Press Recognizes an Inflection Point

Michael Rosenberg, sports columnist for the Detroit Free Press, wrote an interesting piece yesterday. Detroit is the site for this year’s Super bowl (XL), which explains his interest:

"…That's why the Colts remain an easy pick for this week's Corian Set-In-Stone Super Bowl XL matchup: Colts vs. Redskins.

The Redskins just whipped the Division I-AA San Francisco 49ers to move to 4-2. If Washington actually makes the Super Bowl, Joe Gibbs might just go down as the greatest coach in the history of the game.

Think about it. Gibbs already won Super Bowls with Joe Theismann, Doug Williams and Mark Rypien at quarterback. He then spent a decade as a NASCAR owner, and he is supposed to be a pretty good one…

…Now, just to amuse himself, Gibbs is trying to make the Super Bowl with Mark Brunell as quarterback. If Gibbs succeeds, he'll cut Brunell and sign Screech from "Saved By The Bell." The man is all about challenges, and you have to respect that..."

It always starts with humor by folks who are a little afraid to go out on a limb. Yet, slowly but surely, people are starting to recognize that Gibbs has created an inflection point.
