(USA TODAY) --Microphones are not everyone's friend and Hall of Fame football coach Joe Gibbs got a taste of that on Wednesday.

During an interview with ESPN's Bram Weinstein and Ryen Russillo, Gibbs was talking about how basketball has now taken all the players who might have starred as NFL tight ends.

When he was with Washington, Gibbs was known to make sure he was covered at the position. Unfortunately he explained his zeal for the value of the positons by telling the radio hosts that "they always said I was queer for tight ends."
