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

Quote:
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.

When did a player curse at Philbin?

Only thing I remember is Joe lecturing Root about how he was reacting to line coach Kacy Rogers.

When he told Jimmy Wilson to watch the F bombs he was throwing at him, and that he'd be the only one to throw f-bombs around.

I like Philbin's demeanor. He's got the whole speak softly but carry a big stick thing going on. So long as you line up and do your job, you're good. All he asks is that his players take responsibility for their careers and conduct themselves as professionals. If the guy can't do that, he gives them one warning, then he sends them packing. It's straight forward and simple. I like it.
