Fans get to know Philben on Hard Knocks
Hey, something positive here. Is he the guy or not to get this done?

Philbin is a sound, reasonable guy who has his door open for players, believes in strong values, doesn’t like cursing, and handles even the most ridiculous thing (a player cursing at him) with class. When Philbin cut Chad Johnson, it could have been awful. An inside look at a terrible reality for a coach, crushing someone’s dreams. He could have been outed as a soulless jerk. Instead, Philbin was gentle but stern, explaining the reasons for the release but never using the word release or cut. It was classy, and it seemed like even Johnson appreciated that. When players are in pain, it looks like Philbin feels it.
