I could never understand why we picked Wallace over JenningsLike Greg Jennings is someone who I wish I had earlier as I look back on things. Because he knows me, and I know him
Yea personality wise he is my kind of coach, idk why people dislike him so much for off field stuffI'm really rooting for Joe. Not just because I have a vested interest in his success, but because I genuinely like the guy and I want to see him succeed. Cheers, coach Philbin. Let's get that Championship.
Excellent read. Thanks for sharing.
You're spot on in this regard. Joe is anything but not mentally tough. I think to many people correlate our late season failings to him being weak. I disagree I think the Wallace's, Starks, Martin, and Hartline types played a major factor in the late cohesiveness of our guys. Time will tell. I'm routing for you Joe, but if we fail to make the playoffs I'll be done with you.Not sure why people blast Philbin for being weak mentally. Jesus, the guy lost a son and then went right to work as his first time as an nfl head coach without having a lot of pieces in place on that team. I've never seen him break from the plan, tweak it in the offseason, but not break. It takes mental toughness to know that there will be some challenges along the way, but by developing your young QB right and building a team the right way sustained success will follow.
If you take that whole paragraph...fascinating artilce, can't imagine Joe working in a prison!
As for this bit:

You’ve also got to get the right guys in there. Like Greg Jennings is someone who I wish I had earlier as I look back on things. Because he knows me, and I know him. You’ve gotta have your kind of guys. And some guys can be successful other places, and that’s OK. And some guys aren’t my cup of tea, and I’m not their cup of tea, and that’s OK. Some guys want a coach that’s more active on the sideline, and I have no problem with that. But I know that I have been coaching for 32 years, and I’ve had some success, and I know how I can do it can work with the right guys. It’s not the only way to do it, but it’s the way I’m going to do it. I can’t be somebody else. I've got to be serious and boring and all that stuff. But it’s not going to work if I have to try to coach like some other guy. I can’t figure that out. It’s too hard. This game is not that hard, I really don’t think it is. I have to be myself, and I’m gonna be myself, and I think that’s good enough. I think it will work—with the right guys. Some guys it just doesn't work with. And that doesn't make them bad guys. They could be good guys for somebody else, they could be great for somebody else, and that’s OK. I’m fine with that.
