    Good to see Wake taking a more vocal leadership role. He's definitely been a great leader by example... but as one of the best players on the team (both on and off the field), we need him to be that vocal leader as well. Glad he's stepping into that role...

    In 1972, every one of those statements were true.

    I like it actually. Also, it's clear that this has become Cam Wake's team.

    I posted this in the other thread, but apparently it's the soldiers credo?

    I was just coming to post this. Some will say its cheesy but I think it's awesome. Shows you the brotherhood and togetherness the players have for each other.

    No doubt in my mind some of this has to do with the bullying scandal too. Even if Wake denies it. As embarrassing as that situation was it has seemingly brought the team closer together, and that's a good thing.

    I started reading this and thought it was some cheese marketing quote from some dweebs in a stadium office suite. But when I saw it was from the guys that bleed, sweat and fight as Dolphins, it made me happy. Good stuff!

    What I like about this is that Philbin a) identified the issue on the team and b) recognized that he wasn't the guy to fix it. A lot of coaches would have come-up with some corny slogan and tried to get the troops to rally behind them. That works for some people like Rex Ryan but it doesn't suit everyone's personality and when you don't have the personality for it, it just comes off as disingenuous.

    Been thinking about this and I think there might be an indication of a problem with Philbin's mentality - DISCLAIMER - I might very well be wrong having read far too much into this, but it would tie into Philbin's stand-off mentality.

    What's wrong with the credo? Nothing.

    What's wrong with credo's in general? Nothing.

    What's wrong here then? It's one thing Philbin said. He said that this was something that came all from the guys, their words, and that it had to come from them.

    Depends just what he meant and was thinking but I think he's wrong and this attitude might be an indicator of his natural tendency to stand away from the players and expect/hope things to just happen.

    Everyone knows that the ideal scenario in any team or group is that everyone will work together, will see and grasp the vision, will be self-motivated and responsible. However, anyone with a bit of experience or common sense knows that this is almost never the case. Leaders exist for a reason and leadership is important for a reason. Things like this credo DON'T have to come from the team. They CAN come from the leadership, the coaches. If Philbin doesn't understand/has missed this then it may well be a problem. The issue here isn't where the inspiration comes from but rather that it actually inspires. We don't all bring all we need to the table. The whole point of a team is that members make one another better and bring things to the table that other don't have. AS the chief leader of that team Philbin CAN and SHOULD bring things to the table to guide and inspire the team. The issue isn't that things like that come from him or the other coaches, it's whether or not you enable the players to grasp that inspiration and make it their own.

    It's possible that Philbin showed his colours when he said that his favourite part was 'I'm a Professional'. Maybe it's another indicator that Philbin (who is naturally -probably - or by strong principle, self-motivated and holds himself to a high standard) really believes that every player on the squad SHOULD NOT need to be inspired or lead and that they should find it within themselves. This would correspond with his tendency last year to keep to himself. It might indicate that he saw his job as providing X's and O's and training schemes etc. and missed the reality that as the chief leader he is and must also be a fountain to the whole team, setting the atmosphere, providing inspiration and other things - just being a leader.

    Now don't get me wrong, leadership is darn tough. Not everyone is cut out for it and even when you are it requires a lot. The minimum though, is that you see yourself as that leader, understand your role.

    This statement by Philbin that the credo HAD TO COME from the guys might be an indication that he still doesn't see that, or at least, know how to fulfill it.

    I wonder if that's a Star Citizen joke:

    I like it, it gives them something they are going to have to live up to, they put their name in it,and if they don't, I'm gonna be the first to call their asses out about it..

    The other reason I like it is because I think when your playing in this town and in that stadium, something like this can only help..

    I'd have it posted everywhere I could around them especially before they take the field, just as reminders, your sport it, damn it you better own it.

    What, ThePhins.com? Talk to Celt and Muck... or Phinsational.

    I hear they offer favorable financing terms.

    Unfortunately Wake plays on the defense and it is Tannehill who needs to go and and make this his team. Wake has been the best player on this team for the past three years and this team still hasn't had a winning season because the offense has been below average over those same three years.

    I love Wake and what he brings to the team, but until Tannehill can do for the offense what Wake does for the defense, I really don't see any comments on a shirt making any difference on the record of this team.

    I saw Andrew Dice Clay perform last night. He was hilarious. But he also has a moment, where he lays down his credo...and it should be our credo.

    Meh. If the players are into it, great. Otherwise, just more motivational hoopla. Don't forget how riled up Tony Sparano's Gladiator luncheon speech got some of you prior to the 2011 season and we all know how that turned out.

    P.S. fan version is hilarious and accurate.

    That's what is so perfect about them to me. BOTH are accurate. There are plenty fans on this board in both categories.
