    Is Philbin A Leader of Men?

    FWIW, this is a question around South Beach. Some do not think he has the emotion to get the best from his players. Others believe that he walks softly but, carries a big stick (aka cut from team). Still others believe that he is in over his head.

    Your opinions?

    Huh? Who is asking this question or are skeptical? He did fine last year and there are numerous articles about how the players like him. He is calm, has a dry humor but is strict and respected by his players. Who is saying he is in over his head? First time I heard that.

    The Dolphins have a chance. Our very own Gregg Rosenthal has developed a dangerous man crush on Ryan Tannehill, and for good reason. The second-year pro quarterback showed steady development last season and he's earned rave reviews during offseason practices. After signing Mike Wallace, general manager Jeff Ireland indulged in a free-agent shopping spree for the ages, adding proven talent on both sides of the ball. Meanwhile, homegrown running back Lamar Miller is set up for a breakout campaign. Yes, coach Joe Philbin more closely resembles a middle manager at IBM than a leader of men, but he guided the team well in 2012. The Dolphins harbor playoff expectations, and that's realistic if Tannehill can put it all together.

    Here's a mild opinion on Philbin from a Pat's fan. Remember that South beach has as many Jets and Pats fans as we do. FOR NOW

    I don't think a cheap shot at physical appearance by a Patriots fan is enough to question if he is a leader or if he is in over his head.

    Then come down to South Beach, and join me in hearing the rest. The first pint is on me.

    People will continue to bring this up until we establish ourselves as a team that makes it to the playoffs more times than not.

    But I'm a huge Philbin fan. I believe in him.

    I don't think that everyone is in love with him like many on this site so it is a valid question. One that can only be answered by performance. I'm not going to say he and everyone on are team are destined to be great or horrible after a 7 and 9 season.

    I took that quoted opinion as saying "Joe might not look like he can led but he did a good job". I think with any unproven coach you will get criticizing. Can you imagine what criticism would have come to any second year coach with Aaron Hernandez, it might have cost them their job. Joe will be fine, he seems to have integrity and like discipline. Two qualities lacking in some coaching these days. I like the old school approach.

    He seemed to be able to lead them fine last year, and even when Dansby was making a stink in preseason Philbin put him in his place. There have been numerous articles in the last couple of months about how much the players like and respect him. He never lost the team last season, so I am not going to start questioning his leadership skills or if he is in over his head.

    His personality to me most resembles that of Tony Dungy. Sure he isn't always loud or cursing, but he does seem to be able to hold things together and have the team's respect.

    I really don't care if Patriots fans write negative articles about his personal appearance or if Jets and Patriots fans on South Beach dislike him. We as Dolphins fans are much more connected to the daily happenings with this franchise.
