Always knew I liked Joe Philbin.

In addition to being a gentleman and a scholar and a decent human being, he’s obviously a man of refined tastes, as evidenced by his post-practice press conference Tuesday.

Asked if he was worried about distractions with putting his playbook on an iPad, Philbin replied thusly, according to Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel:

“If our guys are sitting in meetings and playing a bunch of music or going on ProFootballTalk.com we’re not going to be very good.

“We’re going to find guys who love football, love their job and want to be good. If we have to police that type of stuff, it is going to be tough to win games.”

Actually, it might be easier, as we are of like mind. Truth of the matter is, ProFootballTalk.com is full of guys who love football, love their job and want to be good.

From that perspective, we’re practically teammates.

So Joe, thanks for noticing. And have your IT guys install this, just to make it easier for everyone.
