I watched Hard Knocks last night.
This is good stuff.
I enjoy watching Joe Philbin. He’s a “rookie” head coach, but you can tell he’s no rookie in dealing with people. He’s a perfectionist; the kind of guy who just knows the game. I like the way he communicates with the players. I also like him being a no-nonsense guy in his approach to Chad Johnson. There’s no doubt where he stands:
The Dolphins are working with limited talent, in a brutal division and an ownership group that doesn’t have a whole lot of patience. It’ll be interesting to see how Philbin works out with that team in the long term.
Tune into Hard Knocks on Tuesdays at 9PM Central. It’s great reality TV for sports.
