Philbin's packet impressed everyone

Jeff Ireland said that 15 minutes into Joe Philbin's first interview, he knew the Dolphins were onto something. Stephen Ross said after his interview he talked to Carl Peterson, his long-time friend and adviser, and Peterson told him it was the best presentation by a coach he'd ever seen.

Yeah, Joe Philbin apparently had the Dolphins at hello. Or at least that's the narrative today.

So how did Philbin do it?

“I put together a packet of information that I really started working on in 2009 maybe," he told me Saturday. "And I’ve been amending it and adjusting it and tweaking it for the last couple of years. But I had things ready to go in case an opportunity would have presented itself. I had really worked on it hard in the summer. Obviously I don’t have a lot of time to work on it during the season. It’s been brewing for a while.”

The packet, which Ross indicated is about an inch or two thick, is meant to show teams what Philbin is about. It speaks of Philbin's history, his philosophy …

“Yeah, expectations, values, things in my core belief, base philosophy," he said. "It’s not how we’re going to attack Cover 2 but how we’re going to run an offense. What kind of system we envision running. Are we going to be a multiple formation team. Are we going to be a no-huddle team, things along those lines. More broad based.”

After the interview, Philbin was happy with his performance. He said he got on a plane home and felt like he was flying at 30,000 feet -- plane or not.

“I though it went well, I really did," he said. "When I flew home I thought it went very well. And I thought we got along well, also. Mr. Ross and I, the first time we sat down, just the two of us for well over an hour. And we kicked around a lot of things and talked about the things he had done in his career. I thought it was good.”

As for this McCoy, Philbin and the Coordinators "flap", there could be a simple explantion.

It could be simply that Ross and Ireland didn't have enough confidence in the 39 year old McCoy, where as they did with the older, more experienced Philbin.

The misunderstanding could have been a professional courtesy on Ross' part in not having to tell McCoy point blank, sorry, after having interviewed you, we don't think your qualified enough to make these calls.

Hence, the decision to hire Philbin.
I'm chalking it up to the above, mixed in with some due diligence. They trusted Philbin to make these hires and not McCoy-NEXT!

????

Uninspired writing for such a great day in FIN nation......

In a word......

Disappointment......

odinseye why must you drag all your posts from one blog to the next??? do you think they are that gadang important? are you worried someone will miss your post??? get over yourself.

Mando don't concern yourself with Philbin's package.

Mando kris is keeping his eyes on Philbin's package.
You need to keep you eye on the Cleveland Plain Dealer so that you can be the first to know what's happening on Dolphins after the people the Cleveland do.

Get over myself?

I'll drag my posts over, you're posts over, HECK, I'll even drag Pricemasters posts over!

Second of this is Saturday: drinking night. I'm going to drink a 375 of Evan Williams 83 and then finish off the night drinking Bud.

You'll know that it's starting to kick in when I start offering to assist all of you with your suicides.

Bottoms Up

As the GREAT Ozzy Osbourne once said:

Wine is Fine but Whiskeys quicker.

Suicide is slow with Liquor!

PS: Price, could you do Beezer first? You know, assist him with his suicide.

PSS: Beezer, before Price helps you out by making this a better world(assisting you with your suicide).........ah.........Eat A Dik!

Buh Bye Now ;)

Beezer upset cause I posted FIRST-LOL.

U

MAD

Bro

Am not going to go on here and pretend like I know Mr. Philben...

However what I do know is the GB organization is doing something right.

So plucking coaches and players from them can't possibly hurt.

I like the hire (Philben), bring in Kevin Green as DC... So get Matt Flynn as QB... Get Mike Shurman as a OC... Hopefully they don't tag TE finley... If they don't then throw all types of money at him.

Draft the OT in first round and TE coby flenner in 2nd round from stanford.

Remember what our new coach said: he wants players WHO WANT TO BE GREAT... Trade Marshall NOW!!!

odin, you drag the blog down to sewer levels. get a life, come back later.

odin you drag the blog down to sewer levels. get a life.

i like the article... haters. thanks mando. this is good stuff... i am soaking up the philbin quotes; he seems to be a very thoughtful and "classic" style head coach

f4,
I agree.
Marshall, Dansby & Matt Moore are all tradeable.

Flynn won't come here though for 2 reasons:
1. His agent won't let him
2. Philbin is not going to stake the beginning of his career on Flynn because if he is wrong about him he'll be screwed.

where is dinkledork craig m to say we should have selected some other espn prospective coach of the day? why didn't we interview this dude? why not this other dude? what a shitbrain that kid is.

I guess Philbin showed his package to everyone in the presser. Good, we need someone with balls in this organization.

I think he just showed it to Mando. Penn State style.

Price, I think I just heard wet slapping sounds in the showers!

Somebody should of told ya Im one one... F it Im on one.... Thanks to the Dolphins

Ahh, the Positives, are our daily Bread.

beezer I agree.
Craig M & Rob in OC are both mysteriously absent.

Cheers!

Gdangit woman! Pour me another shot of Crown!

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm..............lets see..........

I was having a conversation on one blog with a couple of posters.

After making a post, a new Blog popped up. So I copied and pasted it to the new one. Just like I always do.

Yeah, that's really dragging the blog down to the sewer. Let me guess, you think we should all be like you and attack bloggers and call them names because................?

Me Thinks YOU SIR are the sewer rat! Now..........like I told ya..........EAT A DIK!

lol odin ur nuts

Look at Beezer Ya'll!

Attacking people unprovoked and calling names like a third grader.

Next he'll be accusing everyone of acting just like himself.

Hippocrit!

Ahhh! Alcohol poisoning is starting to taint our writing.

So I'm not entirely clear of the sequence of things that took place in NY.
On the one hand it sounds like Philbin spent the first hour showing his package to Ross alone.
So when did Peterson see Philbin's package?
Was he webcamming his package to Peterson from Ross' office?
Or were Ross and Peterson both examining the package together in which case Mando has the story wrong?
History tells me the latter is more likely.

If Mando were an elite, franchise journalist I might feel differently; but he is not and that is why this blog is mediocre.

I guess Philbin showed his package to everyone in the presser. Good, we need someone with balls in this organization.

ROTFLMAO-Well Said Redsky!

You're trying to make the Pro Bowl of Bloggers today ;)

odin you respond endlessly to so much crapola and fill the blog with diarrhea. its not about this single incident. then you drag all your posts over like the world is waiting on your drivel.

If Philbins résumé is considered a big package, then I guess Mando's would be considered a "Short Story."

Resume, Philbin's resume, blog messed it up. Thanks Odin, I don't care what beezer says about you, you're alright!

Mr. Ross clearly got excited when he saw the size of Mr. Philbin's package...

Anyway I'm convinced more than ever that

HENNE IS ABOUT TO BE FRANCHISED

On the plus side next November, after this loser gets fired, perhaps we'll be able to get a real coach? Although, probably not if dumb and dumber are still in place. And of course, if these idiots go after Flynn like he's the next coming of Marino because he had ONE good game on a much better team. If that's the case, then we won't get a good coach then either because we'll be saddled with yet another crappy retread and a huge contract. Gonna be years before we can even pretend to be competitive. Sigggggh

IRELAND SUCKSSSSSSSSSSS! ROSS SUCKSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!! Philbin SUCKSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Moore SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Flynn SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AMichael, cheer up, no more fist pumps!

I'm happy for Philbin that he has a big package.
But that doesn't change the fact that we have 7 FA's and only 6 draft picks.

Salguero,
One more useless piece of journalism. You're getting worst and worst pal, like the bloggers posts. Are you dealing drugs with your bloggers ? By their comments they seem to be almost all high or stoned.

I'm out. I'll see you guys in November when the new search starts. Take care all! I'm gonna dust off my old 70's and 80's Dolphin dvd's.

Ahh, you mean Crown Royal

If we could trade Brandon Marshall & our 2nd rounder for Justim Blackmon and then take Reif with the 9 pick that would be huge up grade to the offense.
Give Bowles the rest of the draft picks and any cap space left to spend on defense.

odin you respond endlessly to so much crapola and fill the blog with diarrhea. its not about this single incident. then you drag all your posts over like the world is waiting on your drivel.

Posted by: beezer | January 21, 2012 at 08:45 PM

LOL! You call my posts crappola, diarreah and drivel. You mention this is not a single incident. Then why are you responding and following my "stuff(LOL)" so intently?

You remind of the drunk chick on the pool table at the bar. Your laid back with your mini skirt up around your waist, telling everybody that'll listen that you're not a W-H-O-R-E ;p

If me copying and pasting my post onto the new Blog upsets you so much, why don't you just ignore me?

You don't have to prove what an idiot you are and start calling names. It only makes people want to get DOWN on your level and answer you in kind.

I wasn't being rude to anyone. You went out of your way to jump on my nads. I'll tell ya what Fella, I don't mind getting down and dirty. I'll enjoy slapping my name outcha Mouf Bu-oy!

STFU and use that mouth the best way you know how.............Eat A Dik!

Yes Oscar, Crown Royal, I have a LARGE bottle I can share sir. I'm in So. Fla, you?

I was dead wrong yesterday, I just watched Philbin's press conference and I think we may have something here. I know alot of it was PR, but I still think he's an upgrade. All one can do is hope.

Beezer=Boozer?

PA I agree, let's give the guy a chance!

Well, actually, I'm in Miami.

PA,
It has to be an upgrade because Philbin has actually been among super bowl caliber players.
I don't think we even have 22 NFL quality starters on our roster. I'd be surprised if we have more than 10.
Half of our starters would be special teamers or released from other teams.
In fact that's how we got a lot of them they were released from other teams.

redsky, that's all we can do, I was ready to quit yesterday, but couldn't throw 41 yrs away. I have too much time and love invested in this team.

Anyway I'm convinced more than ever that

HENNE IS ABOUT TO BE FRANCHISED

Posted by: PriceMaster | January 21, 2012 at 08:49 PM

This is based on profound wisdom? Wild guessing? Or just trying to get a rise out of the bloggers?

Redsky,

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.........!!!!

You're in South Fla. with a Bottle of Crown!

I'm stuck up here in the Hinterlands! It's been hovering around minus 5 for the past three days. Windchill of 15 to 20 below!

If that's not bad enough, I'm drinking the Cheap Stuff compared to the Crown Royal!

Price, hopefully, Philbin will have some input and we can get some too

STFU and use that mouth the best way you know how.............Eat A Dik!

Posted by: odinseye | January 21, 2012 at 09:01 PM


Yep, that is the odin we all know.

Price,

Blackmon will probably go top 5.

Would you trade your top 5 pick to someone for Brandon Marshall and a 40th overall?

It's not necessarily all that far fetched. I just don't think I'd do it.

Comments?

Price?

Anybody?

would rather of kept Nolan as HC. I sure hope Ireland got this one right.

atleast he knows how to speak english

deedles,
Everyone in here knows that I'm one of Chad Henne's 2 fans in this blog. TheSMF is the other one. Odin is 50/50.

Regardless Chad Henne beat Green Bay last season and Philbin stood on the sidelines and watched. Chad Henne also beat Pittsburg last season. New England. The Jets 3 times in thier 2 AFC c'ship game seasons. Henne put more yords on NE this season than any other team and he did it on MNF so everyone in America saw it.

And he's never had a running game.
And he takes a beating.
And he is the lowest paid player on the field.
And he never complains.
And he holds all of the Michigan and Big-10 passing records.
And Stephen Ross is the biggest Michigan Booster.
And Stephen Ross said Chad Henne would be the best Phin QB in history
And Stephen Ross likes Henne so much that he bought this team

I was dead wrong yesterday, I just watched Philbin's press conference and I think we may have something here. I know alot of it was PR, but I still think he's an upgrade. All one can do is hope.

Posted by: PA finfan | January 21, 2012 at 09:02 PM

No surprise man, you said it.

I never paid any attention to Philbin. I saw a couple of pictures of the guy and thought: WTF?!?!

Then I saw sideline footage of him and the presser. Suddenly I had an entirely different outlook on the guy.

It's kind of wierd, the still photos don't do him any justice at all.

Price, wake up. We beat a green bay team severely injured, missing many of its starters. And big deal, chad hennewadzo never ever never ever had a winning season. born loser that boy. his last 5 starts, 0-5. you got no argument.

Odin, that is exactly what happened with me, but I must admit I am impressed, he seems collected and confident, hopefully it pans out.
