Philbin has been IFFY on some personnel moves, so it might be on him too. Ireland wanted to keep Gates, for instance -- in hindsight that would have been SMART, as most of the other WRs on the roster are simply possession WRs. Philbin cut Gates [instead of any of the other list of MEDIOCRE or TERRIBLE WRs like Lemmego Nanae] and Voila! the Phins were left without a legit deep threat and teams boxed in the Phins the last half of the year, and the redzone WR plays were non-existent -- all due to SLOW, MEDIOCRE talent at WR.
Gates got picked up immediately by the Jets, and flashed some serious potential and field-stretching presence. Not keeping Gates and not cutting Egnew, Nanae, etc. [sooner] are all on Philbin, not Ireland.
Philbin has choices with the roster NOW and so far some of those choices have been misguided to the max, where WR and TE are concerned.
I would have like to see him play some. He made some nice catches in the preseason.
