Adam Gase is already better than Joe Philbin. On Tuesday's practice, Gase was going around and talking smack to his defense. Philbin would be telling his defense to pick up the candy wrappers. Gase just looks so comfortable as a rookie head coach. Gase is only 38 years old and he can easily relate to these players. That is something Philbin could never do and we see how that ended up. It's going to be fun to see how the team progresses with their new coach. I for one am very excited to see what Gase can do with this team.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day's round-up below.
