The consensus at this site seems to be that Gibbs is a run-oriented coach. I just found an article at footballguys.com which that refutes that belief. It states that in 14 years of playcalling, 50% have been passes and 50% were runs.
The full article shows the stats to back up the commentary:
Here's the commentary (the good stuff is towards the middle and end):
Head Coach - Joe Gibbs; what needs to be said about the man who brought three Super Bowl titles to D.C. before retiring to form a NASCAR team? Gibbs returns unexpectedly and has also taken control of football operations, perhaps the only man alive that owner Dan Snyder would've allocated so much power
Offensive Coordinator - Don Breaux; Gibbs has a deep, experienced offensive coaching staff including Joe Bugel, who holds the title of Assistant Head Coach. But it's believed Bugel will focus on the offensive line. To that end, Gibbs named Don Breaux offensive coordinator. Breaux coached the Redskins running backs from 1981-1993 and then served as a tight ends coach for the Jets and Panthers over the following eight seasons.
Defensive Coordinator - Gregg Williams; Williams quickly joined Gibbs' staff after being fired as the Bills head coach. Williams was considered one of the most in demand defensive coordinator possibilities, having crafted strong defenses in his years with Tennessee (formerly Houston) prior to becoming a head coach.
In 14 seasons calling NFL plays, Gibbs ran the gamut offensively from the rush heavy teams lead by John Riggins to the Super Bowl team that relied on the arm of Mark Rypien. If you're looking for a coach that's not beholden to one style of play calling, look no further than Joe Gibbs. Note the symmetry of his coaching career to date. In 14 seasons, 50% of his play calls were passes, the other 50% were rushes. His highest percentage or rushes in a season - 58%, his highest percentage of passes - 58%. This is a man who identified the weaknesses in opposing teams' defenses, and crafted game plans to take advantage of those weaknesses.
Stylistically Gibbs was known for his innovative motion offense, and also favored max protection schemes to keep the quarterback on his feet. It's exactly that type of scheme that may work well in today's NFL, where teams have built defenses to stop the spread offenses made popular in recent years. There's no question that Gibbs is a bit of a throwback when it comes to rushing the ball. His teams' averaged more than 520 carries per season and the Redskin's aggressive acquisition of Clinton Portis signals Gibbs' intention to pick up where he left off. Some skeptics may point to Gibbs' teams paltry 3.84 career yards per rush as a sign of worry, but remember that Gibbs never had a RB quite like Portis (Riggins and Byner were grinders) and we would caution against holding that against the young RB.
Until someone proves otherwise, we're giving Gibbs the benefit of the doubt and expect big fantasy production from this team. Coaching football is a lot like riding a bike; once you learn you don't ever really forget.
The Redskins are not lacking in talent offensively, with one of the best young running backs in football, two solid tackles, a talented QB tandem and a deep receiving corps. You can count on Gibbs & Company putting an emphasis on protecting the quarterback, which means he'll have plenty of time to find Coles, Gardner & Company on the outside.
Defensively, Williams was the hottest commodity this offseason and will have every opportunity to prove his worth on a team long on big contracts but short on impact. Is this finally the year Lavar Arrington lives up to the hype? Will the team generate a pass rush with the no name line it's assembled? Can Fred Smoot and Shawn Springs pick up where Champ Bailey left off? Stay tuned.
Our purpose on this planet is to laugh. For in Hell we shall not be able to and in Heaven it would not be proper.
