And he has come to understand, after all these years, what the late Jack Kent Cooke felt when he looked out from the Redskins owners' box on game day, puffed out his chest and surveyed all he had built. "My thrill in football was the technical stuff: Making it work. But I never understood his thrill," Gibbs confesses. "Now I do. He found a way to purchase that team, and it was in his family. He had [son] Johnny working with him. And he used to get a kick out of being in the box and saying, 'Hey! I own all this! And I picked these guys to do this! And look! We're going to win a ballgame.' It's the thrill of putting something together and seeing a dream work. And it's having your kids with you."
