Post Philbin Nearly Quit Over Sherman Firing
Report: Miami Dolphins coach Joe Philbin nearly quit before being forced to fire Mike Sherman

http://fansided.com/2014/01/11/report-miami-dolphins-coach-joe-philbin-nearly-quit-forced-fire-mike-sherman/

Though I respect his loyalty to his friend/mentor, I wish he showed more loyalty to the team. One touchdown in the last two games and numerous 2nd half meltdowns clearly indicates Sherman had to go. In my mind, it indicated Philbin and both Coordinators needed to go......... unfortunately, we're stuck with Philbin/Coyle for another year.

They should have let him. This just goes to show us how stubborn this guy is. '14 will be a waste of a year, watch.

Sounds like Sparano after Ross interviewed Harbaugh. Disgruntled coaches aren't good. Get ready for a three win season.

I was hoping that he would take a hard stance with keeping Sherman. I think that would have forced Ross to fire him.

Let's face it. If he doesn't succeed with the Dolphins, I highly doubt he gets another opportunity to be a head coach again.

What's the only thing worse than a rebuilding year? ...knowing next year is the year BEFORE the rebuilding year.

I doubt he even gets a OC job. I just dont think he is really respected.

Sherman "Nah Joe, dont quit for me, then they win. Stick around as long as you can, these chumps that weasel Jeff dumped on us cant win, just milk that rich a-hole for all you can, I'll be a HC in college by the spring and I'll bring you on next year. And dont worry, I'd never tell Diane about you and Dawn"

:haha

That's why this piece meal firing is not, will not work. I would have fired the entire staff, period.

It's going to take us 4-5 years minimum to rebuild this team.

If you can't beat the Jets at home with Geno Smith and the playoffs on the line, its not going to work guys.

Then to hear Sherman was Philbin's teacher in High School....?
