Joe Philbin Makes His Return in Indianapolis, Not New York


If someone gave me the choice between Indianapolis and New York, I would laugh very heartily at the mere suggestion that this was being presented as a choice at all.

As such, it was suggested that former Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator and Miami Dolphins coach Joe Philbin was set to become the offensive coordinator of the New York Giants, earlier this week. Today it was announced that Philbin is now the offensive coordinator offensive line coach of the Indianapolis Colts.

First of all, good for Philbin for getting himself a job.

We just have to wonder why he isn’t in New York.

The Giants hired former Packers quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo as their new head coach this week. It was first reported that Philbin would be the offensive coordinator and then reported that he’d have another role. Perhaps assistant head coach.

Maybe McAdoo just couldn’t decide what to do with Philbin. Maybe the role reversal was too awkward, since Philbin used to be McAdoo’s boss in Green Bay. Maybe Philbin just likes second-rate midwestern cities.

Tough to say, but we’d sure be interested to know how that played out.

    This one to me is easy luck or manning

    Philbin is not the new Colts’ OC. He’s their offensive line coach. Chud is their OC.

    Monty gets it WRONG again !

    There’s nothing wrong, with being wrong. Hell, i was wrong, once back in 2006.

    The thing i wonder about though, why is it Monty never post’s even on his own site. Sure, he could claim he doesn’t have the time, but it takes a lot of time to write 6 articles in 1 day, like he did on today. Posting comments takes seconds. So what’s the deal?

    Citing the fact he’s making money hand over fist, because of us Packerfan fanatics. would be nice of him to strap a set on and show himself.

    Just sayin.

      He does post, but under pseudonyms.
      Why wouldn’t he?
      That shit just generated more views.
      I’m not complaining though, I enjoy most of the discussions down below.

        I’ve thought of that in the past, but i figured that was too lame, even for him. Idk.

        Does that mean E.Wolf is just an alter ego??

    He went to Indy, thats all that matters. What position coach he is hardly matters to us.

    Harry hood- up until, oh I don’t know, next year when we play the colts?!?! Then it is fairly important
