NBC has reunited two former Washington Redskins standouts, coach Joe Gibbs and quarterback Joe Theismann, for its NFL wild card playoff doubleheader Saturday. The pair will team with play-by-play announcer Tom Hammond and sideline reporter Tiki Barber to call the New York Jets at Cincinnati game at 3:30 p.m. Don’t be surprised to see them trade a few Redskins stories and discuss the team’s prospects under new coach Mike Shanahan. "I’m excited about it,” Gibbs said about working with Theismann. "I may give him a few ‘Shut up, Joes,’ but other than that... "That’s just force of habit,” Theisman replied. "That’s all that is.” NBC’s No. 1 team, Al Michaels, Cris Collinsworth and Andrea Kremer, will broadcast the nightcap, Philadelphia at Dallas, at 7 p.m. Theismann, 60, who was dropped from ESPN’s "Monday Night Football” after the 2006 season, is eager about returning to the booth. As co-host of the NFL Network’s "Playbook” with Sterling Sharpe and Brian Baldinger, he stays close to the game. He also has called Redskins preseason games. "I’ve always looked at broadcasting as what I call the keys to the library in football,” he said. "You have access to so many different people at so many different levels, from coaches to players to management. There is so much to learn.” In a unique twist, both Saturday games and Fox’s Green Bay at Arizona game at 3:30 p.m. Sunday will feature rematches of lopsided season-finale games. Gibbs, 69, said he doesn’t expect Bengals coach Marvin Lewis and Eagles coach Andy Reid will have any trouble getting their teams prepared. "I used to love being in a position as a coach when somebody has kicked your butt the first go around,” he said. "I think your preparation is much easier. The second thing is evident about the NFL is diminishing returns. When a team sees something that you’ve done against them, generally the second go around they have a way of taking care of that.” NBC studio analyst Rodney Harrison, a former Patriots defensive back, is expecting that in the Eagles-Cowboys game, predicting the Eagles will avenge Dallas’ 24-0 victory Sunday. "I actually picked Philly to go to the Super Bowl,” Harrison said. "I don’t know how Dallas — with the pressure of them not winning a playoff game in the last decade, all the hype and pressure surrounding them — in back-to-back weeks, can beat Philadelphia, especially with Andy Reid, an experienced coach. Donovan (McNabb) has played in the playoffs and played in a Super Bowl, and I flat out think Andy Reid is a better coach.” Editor's note: This story incorrectly stated Joe Theismann's age as 50. He is 60.
