Philbin seems good so far, but he has done some questionable things for sure.
A strong sign we have not improved, is the same tired threads on the forum every year.
I haven't agreed with Dansby much over the last year or two, but i do here. Even if you are rotating guys in to keep fresh, that was a LONG drive that took many plays. Why didn't the coaches rotate Wake and Odrick back in the spell the guys who were obviously winded and getting pushed all over the field on the last series? If you are going to go down, you go down fighting with your best players. Screw the gameplan at that point.
I was a HUGE fan of Philbin's when he took the job but i'm beginning to question if he's a good fit. I just see a lot of questionable coaching decisions, personnel decisions, and lack of innovation and excitement from an offense that he was supposed to energize. We had a more exciting scheme when Sparano and Henning were here with Pennington.
Yea and what happens when wake and odrick weren't on the field.. They ran the ball all over us.. Hmm? I agree with dansby it made a big difference in that drive
It's not brought up in the article, but I saw McDaniel in for Soliai for most of that drive as well if I'm not mistaken (And I could be). I remember thinking Soliai must have been hurt, but then saw him on the field for plays towards our goal line. We held their running game in check all game, and that last drive was so frustrating to watch. More so now knowing we were resting our starters. Are we angling for a better draft pick?
I actually was listening to that interview at work today on IHeartRadio. First off I can't stand how Dansby talks. He says man, period, and you know what I'm saying...way too often. That being said, I wouldn't worry about what he was saying. You know what I'm saying? Man.
More grandstanding from Philbin and his ego. Ugh...
I believe any man's finest hour - his greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle...Victorious
Is this a Fire Coach Philbin Thread? Oh boy! Lucky me I'm right on time...
