    Coach Joe has got both that Tom Landry "no-nonsense, I command respect, speak softly but carry a big stick" and Bill Walsh "intellectual" vibes going on. So far I'm liking what I've seen.

    I haven't felt this good about the Dolphins in a few years. I think this is a playoff team.

    Coach Philbin's dry sense of humor and intellect are a breath of fresh air compared to the last guy.

    I have confidence in Coach Philbin and believe he has the Dolphins headed in the right direction.

    Just win Phin baby!

    I have my masters degree in management and leadership and probably the biggest "no kidding" part of the coursework was that many different leadership styles can be effective. Philbin seems to understand his style won't work for everybody and gets rid of those that don't fit.

    If I were a player I'd want a coach to treat me as a responsible adult and with respect. Philbin seems to do that and if players are unable to work with that (ie: too immature, too prima-Donna, too stubborn) they are replaced with those who respond to that.

    I like what I see from him. There is a lot of strength an intelligence behind that dry demeanor.

    What Philbin might lack in demeanor, the coaching staff as a whole makes up for. I think of how young some of the staff are, and how they interact with the players, and how much they can relate with them. Philbin, Sherman, and Coyle are older, but they lead this group of position coaches, and they in turn run this team. Not all of them are young, but they all seem fiery. The players have definitely taken to the personality of the coaching.

    There were a few coaching decisions by Philbin that were questionable last year (trying to ice the kicker and backfiring) but he's always had a good attitude about his past decisions and knows he has to improve in his role, as well as each member of the Fins in their roles. He doesn't appear fazed in the least bit, and I think he has a gameplan that's pretty clear to him and to the team.

    Compare that to Sparano or any of our past HC's and I think it's without a doubt: so far Philbin is legit.
    Does he still have more to prove? Sure, but until then I believe in the guy to get it done and make our team a winner.

    Some do not think he has the emotion to get the best from his players.
    Where is the evidence that "emotion" gets the best from NFL players?

    I can not believe the premise of this thread. This is a man who has been OC for a Superbowl champion. He took a rookie quarterback and an set of offensive talent that at best would be described as deficient and more honestly should be called garbage and led them to a 7-9 record. Unable to lead? What a joke.
