    Default Why are we not taking advantage..

    I don't understand, anyone have a logical explanation as to why the new coach wouldn't take advantage of a rule that benefits a new coach..???

    So because he's waiting a week it's a big deal? The article says the first two weeks is really only strength and conditioning. I doubt waiting that one week matters much.

    hmm, expecting to sign someone maybe?

    NFL 32 featured Omark saying Philbin was taking extra time to..wait for it...wait for it....

    "evaluate film from 2011"

    Of course the chuckle heads hated that so "the only real way to evaluate players is on the practice field!!!"

    it's not just weight room stuff, you can address your team in the meeting rooms and start to convey your leadership and philosophy to your team, and to me an extra week in the weight room is something I would rather have than not..Is this a big deal?, no, I'd just like to know why other new coaches are not waiting, and he has chosen too wait..

    Maybe they want/need the coaches to participate in the scouting/pro day workouts/etc for the upcoming draft prospects this week? Maybe Philbin is working with guys like Tannenhill/Weeden/etc this week?

    I was in the Tampa area yesterday and heard Shiano's presser, and how he couldn't sleep, and that he was chomping at the bit, he explained how he had them all in the meeting room relaying the message, then how he let the trainers have them..yeah, it's just a bit puzzling, but Iam sure he has a logical explanation, you know coaches, an extra week to spend time with their team in the meeting rooms is like gold..?

    maybe it just speaks to Philibin's level-headedness and that he's not going to overreact just because he's a new coach. He believes in a system that works (hopefully)

    I can't say that I'm all that disappointed that Joe Philbin isn't like all these other meatheads that focus on working harder instead of working smarter, endlessley accelerating work ethic which doesn't seem to result in an increase in the quality of football being played.

    I say trust him. That's my vote. But I think it's valid to beg the question of why.

    I agree with CK, but other new coaches havent just lost a son, and maybe his family is having a hard time, like his other children, his wife and himself, I dont know about how others feel but i cant thing of a more tramatic event in someones life than losing a child. I recently lived through losing a 24 year old nephew, and watched my sister and brother in law have to go throught that..it isnt over in a few months. So i guess i can give coach a break if he wants to take a week off.

    While totally understandable, I would be surprised if it really had anything to do with that. I think it's exactly as padre31 says, Philbin would rather not get everyone together all half-cocked before he's done with his 2011 film review and has a better idea on specific direction as it pertains to individual players and the team as a whole.

    I know Philbin is allowed 11 OTAs instead of just 10 OTAs, and I was pretty sure he planned on burning one of them before the Draft, which not every team gets to do, I don't think.

    That strikes me as smart.

    Totally agree with this, just many factors can play to things, i think sometimes we can forget these guys are human too, have the same family issues. Makes me respect coach even more that he can consintrate on his work and move forward.

    But yes i would rather have him studing film understanding who he has, not just in players but in coaches that have remained on staff from the previous staff as well.

    I think DJ and others are right to question it, but at the same time based on what I've heard out of Joe Philbin it also seems to fit right in with his "work smarter, not harder" approach.
