    Please forgive me if this has been posted.

    It is an awesome story and makes me think Philbin deserves a shot to coach and that he has the chance to be the real deal.

    Thanks. The more I read the more comfortable I am with him as our head coach. I just hope it all translates to wins

    I truly believe we got Philbin at just the right time for both the Dolphins and himself. He may be heading into 50 but I think for him he is now ready to be a long time HC in this league and the Dolphins are lucky to have found him now.

    Great article. Just more confirmation that not only is Philbin a career-influencer who has succeeded at each progressive level of responsibility, but also that he's a high character person who builds lifetime bonds of respect and affection. Birk's comments paralleled those recently made by Aaron Rodgers about Philbin playing a large part in both his professional -and personal development.

    I think we ended up with a special HC; someone who intellectually can figure out how to succeed rather than merely stumbling around on instincts and hoping for the best. I am totally stoked.



    Thanks for leaving behind a legacy of inconsistent performance, setting the Gold standard for
    mediocre coaching & piss-poor GM decision-making before stealing away like a thief in the nite!

    I've had a hard on for the past four days.
    "Fundamentals, technique, execution -- primary. Scheme -- secondary."

    "We will incorporate an aggressive, up-tempo, attacking style in all three phases of the game."


    "Our team will play with discipline, poise, and maximum effort."

    "I want us to be the best tackling team in the NFL, the best team in pursuit, I want to take the ball away from other teams, I want to rattle the opposing quarterback every opportunity we get."

    Its been said before, but I strongly feel this way with Philbin, the first choice isnt always the best Jimmy Johnson turned Tampa down for Miami and the Bucs hired Tony Dungey, more recent Atlanta missing on Parcells and hitting with Thomas Dimitroff.

    Its seems that "fate" plays a large part in people ending up where they need to be, ofcourse Philbin hasnt won a single game, LOL, but I like the vibe that he has.

    We all read how important leaders are, people lead in different ways, my hope is that Joe Philbin is the kind of leader that players follow because they respect and care for him rather than simply fear him.
