Defense is a top 5 unit in many stat categories. Tannehill looks like a 1st round pick. That gimpy running back has helped us win, even while being gimpy. Team looks organized and focused for the first time in years. Small details are getting fixed every week. I cannot see where you think Philbin is in over his head, when all he has done so far is validate that while being inexperienced in this position, he knows football and he understands how to run a tight ship. All of this has led to improvement on the field.
Actually, it's amazing the jets were even able to force overtime. They were obviously playing over their heads against he Patriots and will get crushed by the Dolphins this week.
aside from the fact we are 3-3 and tied for 1st place in the lost column with the pats, there is absolutely no way philbin is fired after this season, unless something unforeseen happens such as something so bad off the field, etc. heck i dont even think he would be fired if we lost our final 10 games.
philbin has done a fine job so far, especially with the lack of talent he has on the offensive side of the ball, and a rookie qb. im not going to anoint him the next don shula yet because sparano also went 11-5 in year 1 and we know how that turned out, but philbin seems to have a strong relationship with the players and upper management, and i expect him here for many years to come.
i mean to make this thread at 3-3 is comical. maybe if we were 0-6, although id still think its premature, but where we are now, being 3-3 and our only 2 losses since week 1 coming in ot, ya philbin is not going anywhere so fast, and should stay here for the foreseeable future.
