Post Andy Cohen: Philbin’s Message Is Hitting Home
A 1-3 September followed by a 3-0 October. What does this mean? It means that the Dolphins are getting better. But how much better?

Ah, that’s what November and December will tell us.

Coach Joe Philbin has made it clear since the beginning of training camp that his goal is to see this team evolve, to see the players improve with each game and to see the level of confidence grow with the quality of performance.

That’s how you make the playoffs. Did we say playoffs? Way too early for that. A few months too early. Many victories too early. Right now what the Dolphins are trying to do is simply make it four-in-a-row with a victory Sunday at Indy. And keep getting better.

That the Dolphins are one of only four teams to make it through October without a loss is certainly something to savor. That they were the only AFC team to do it is cause for further satisfaction. That it marks the first time in 19 years that this franchise has swept through October is clearly noteworthy. But don’t savor it for long. The challenge facing this team has to do more with building a foundation and seeing it grow than it does relishing past success.
