Morning take: Joe Philbin reaction

Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Friday from around the Web:

  • Jarrett Bell of the USA Today doesn’t think Dolphins coach Joe Philbin inspired much conference with his Thursday press conference.

Morning take: Philbin spoke emphatically, but actions speak louder than words. Philbin wasn’t aware of the bullying scandal in his own locker room. So he has a lot to prove.

  • Seth Walder of the New York Daily News examines if Philbin will have a better “pulse” of his locker room?

Morning take: Philbin hasn’t shown that ability in two seasons. This will be a big year to determine if he’s capable of improving in that area.

Morning take: The national outlook on Philbin and the Dolphins isn’t good. They’ve put themselves in this position and have no one to blame but themselves.

Morning take: Not everyone is buying Philbin knew nothing, but the Ted Wells report did confirm that. However, that’s nothing to be proud of.
