The sound of 8-8 makes me nauseous. I've said, since the end of last season, if we don't make the playoffs the front office needs to be cleaned out and i'm sticking to that. The thread topic is philbin , so i expect nothing less than 9-7 from him. He has a quality team and a quality coaching staff in place, so i am not going to give him too many excuses. Sure we have a questionable schedule but if philbin is going to be our coach of the future i expect him to out coach and beat the "better" teams this year. I understand why fans are so enamored with him and he is a likeable guy, but if he can't get us out of mediocrity with this roster , then we need to find a coach that can.
