    Maybe Philbin can go work for the Raiders? Do they have any openings? Or hoping Rex would pick him up as his OC.
    The deeper the roots, the higher the reach.

      1st rumored by Armando from an anonymous source. As I said elsewhere - more of an indictment of why Philbin should have been fired sooner IF it's true IMO. You don't dump a starting QB in his 2nd season after he's shown that much improvement from his rookie season to his 2nd year. Hate this kind of stuff as it doesn't do anything but cause more contention.

        I have no faith in Salguero's reporting. Especially from an anonymous source. He and Omar Kelly are weak reporters. I can't even call them journalists.
        Can we sign this guy?

              Exactly... and he was going to throw out any 2nd year QB to start over with another rookie QB behind that OL and his pass heavy philosophies instead of adapting to what the offense can do best. To have taken Carr would have meant taking him either in the 1st round instead of James at RT, or trading up in the 2nd, missing on Jarvis Landry, and giving up more picks.

              I don't buy this story for several reasons - including as Hickey was Joe's hand picked GM, he could have taken anyone he wanted, including Carr. Lots of things just don't add up.

              If anything, I wished we'd drafted Trai Turner at OG in the 3rd round instead of trading up for Billy Turner at OT in the 3rd and then moving him to OG. SMDH... yeah, good riddance to cautious Joe.

                While it was reported this week that Marino worked closely with Tanehill and took him under his wings which made Philbin uncomfortable. Philbin wanted Tanehill to only take advice from Taylor and the OC. If this is true then I speculate that Ireland probably approached Sherman instead of Philbin about drafting Ryan, and as soon as Sherman had to be let go then Philbin no longer wanted to be attached to Tannehill. Just my theory.

                  It sounds to me like Philbin was looking to blame anyone other than his self for HIS failure as a HC.

                    That might be true but as far as I am concerned Philbin brought Sherman into Miami so anything that Sherman did after that is on Philbin. As much as I can't stand Ireland and Tanneill, that one would fall on Philbin. I understand the logic into bringing in Sherman since he has NFL experience but in my opinion Philbin let Sherman walk all over him and basically took over the team. That's just my theory and/or opinion.

                      Philbin was definitely lost after Sherman left and even his first and 2nd choices for an OC turned him down, including his buddy Macadoo who went to the Giants. Lazor was the teams 3rd or 4th choice and they had to beg him to come work for Philbin.
