    Philbin is a joke. He never gave Ocho a fair shake.

    Yeah Chad's disaster is a fireable offense, but at least let the legal process play out before you call the owner for permission to release him.

    I knew several friends from college who worked with him while he was in Cincy. They always said he was a nice, fun loving type of guy. He was flashy, but not in negative type of way where he'd put down others, or thought he was better than others (when not on the football field).

    The whole "Hollywood" thing is a little crazy though. We only get very small glimpses at some of these stars and athletes yet typically judge them based on those moments in front of the camera. I wouldn't want none of it.

    A little of Chad goes a long ways, so it's easy to get sick of him quick. All Philbin did was subtract a distraction so his lousy team could finish a little bit better than last. But I do agree that he's out of touch and never wanted Chad.

    And Chad is average now, he's not the same guy from Cincinnati.

    I think Chad made them better. Just look at their receiving corps...

    I have no respect for Philbin and I don't think he'll last long as a head coach. He's just not a personable guy and he's not someone the players will really rally to get behind.

    1) The Chad interview - did he really do ANYTHING bad? He joked around with reporters... you're gonna put him on watch for that? Let it slide the first episode.
    2) The dude with the penis on his head - a large part of the team was having a good laugh. Philbin seemed legitimately pissed off about it. I didn't find it that funny personally, but you gotta let your players have some fun. His staff sees it, I don't think he does.
    3) Why sign Chad Johnson if you're gonna look for ways to cut him immediately? If he didn't know what Chad was like, he's stupid. If he did and he signed him, he's just created more drama for his team that he supposedly doesn't want. Stupid. I guarantee Chad made friends in that locker room in his few weeks that think he wasn't treated fairly.

    I guess we'll see, but if I were a Miami fan I'd be pretty worried. The only thing going for them is Tannehill looks pretty decent.
