I know how many of us FANS feel about Philbin vs. Sparano. We see obvious differences in press conferences, interviews, and core philosophies. We see one guy that was overmatched as a head coach, and another who really looks the part, at least for now. Remember that Sparano looked the part in his first season too.
But I'm curious what you've been able to pick up on players' feelings. Do you think there's a big difference for them? Or is it just another coach, with his own strengths and weaknesses just like Sparano had strengths and weaknesses (cue fist-pump jokes). Of course, when players are asked, they sidestep the question, as nobody wants to directly say, "Yeah Philbin's a lot smarter than Sparano" or "so and so cares more about us than the other guy." However, sometimes you can pick these things up reading between the lines, being careful not to interject your own biases and assumptions.
Based on what you've read/heard so far, what do you believe are truly the differences between Philbin and Sparano from a player's perspective?
