    Default Hard Knocks director on Philbin: "I'll run through a wall for that guy"

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d...gn=Twitter_atl

    Maybe he's just saying that to interest potential viewers, but it also goes in line with what everyone has been saying about Philbin since the day he was hired. It all sounds great to me.

    If true it runs the opposite of what many assumed based on his appearance.

    It shouldn't matter. People respond to leaders. Philben will be judged on his leadership not his looks or style.

    Philbin should ask him to do it. See if his money is where his mouth is.
    On the draft Quentin Rollins bandwagon.

    He looks like Larry Coker, which gave us UM fans a bad feeling.

    Last guy who didn't fit our HC look was Mike Tomlin. Hopefully this will make up for that failure.

    Now ain't THAT the truth? Vince Lombardi didn't look like one either until he started coaching

    To be fair, I can't remember another HC who inherited a better situation than Tomlin.

    Let's remember that the players were willing to do the same for Tony Sparano and Dave Wannstedt.

    This guy's got the look of Mary Samsonite/Swanson. Still a leader.

    "Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”
