Philbin & Contenders Now???? > YES!

The process was long, we were all impatient but truly believe Ross/Ireland picked the Man we needed now!

  • At the end of the season we were playing very good & almost beat the Patriots (who are in the AFC Championship game, again).
  • We can bring Flynn in and Philbin already knows the system Flynn is acclimated with, instead of making Flynn adjust to something he has to learn> best chance for success!
  • Not needing a QB in the draft allows us to solidify our O line (which is probably 3/4 there) and PROTECT Flynn.
  • We can also go out and draft Nasty TE....watching the playoffs shows how beneficial they can be!
  • Plug some holes on our D though FA & draft.
  • I like our receiving core, hopefully Philbin can get Gates involved and make him a weapon.
  • Bush has proved to be a every-down back + will be a great weapon in the spread offense.
  • Thomas is decent & strong, not ready to give up on.
  • Flynn seems to hit receivers in stride which plays into Marshall's ability to get yards after the catch.
  • I like RGIII as well but I think we would have to give up too much to get him + no guarantees & the idea of packing someone like Long to get RGIII is INSANE .....trade a perennial pro-bowler arguably the best LT in the game which Leaves a HOLE in the Line so your new QB can get killed...um NO.
  • Don't tell anyone but with Philbin we may actually have a high scoring offense...shhhh.
  • Our D is solid and in the Top 10, I think retaining Bowles would not be a bad idea.
This is an argument of why I feel we can be contenders Now in 2012, not a pipe dream, but it all begins, and is only possible with, the HIRING of PHILBIN as our Head Coach.....nice job Ross ...you may have just brought back credibility and legitimacy to our proud franchise!
