Alex Gibbs, innovative NFL offensive line coach, passes away at age 80


Recommended Posts

For those who don't know, Gibbs was the coach who popularized the 'zone blocking scheme' in the NFL, and ran a system in Denver for years that produced multiple notable RBs, including Terrell Davis, Clinton Portis, and Mike Anderson

Alex Gibbs teaching offensive line concepts on youtube are great knowledge with a brash coach. I loved listening to them, and watch them about once a year. How he talks about cut blocking and the fine line of staying in the bounds of rules and redefining what to look for in scheme prospects to build a bigger deeper untapped pool of prospects is revolutionary. Gibbs and the system that goes to the Shannahans, McVay, LaFleur, Kubiak on and on changed the game is an awesome way. Consistent run games lead to winning games.

Damn....this is a major L for the league. One of the best coaches period. Probably my favorite offensive line coach other than Bob McKitrick.
