These next four or five games could define the future for Joe Philbin. I think the jury is still out on whether Philbin can be the kind of motivator that today's NFL Head Coach must be. He seems to have all of the other attributes required for the position...but can he motivate? Can he get his players to perform at a higher level under pressure? The great coaches of today and yesterday all could. That is the question for me. I really like the guy, don't get me wrong. I'm just not convinced he can push the players buttons...and when we face Seattle, the Patriots twice and the fricken 9ers, we are gonna learn a lot about Mr. Philbin under duress. I really hope he can, but if he can't how much rope do you give him?
