Andrew Brandt, president of the National Football Post and ESPN business analyst, recently talked to The Finsiders about Philbin and the economics of the Peyton Manning situation.

Andrew Brandt, NFL Business Analyst for ESPN and President of the National Football Post, joins the show to provide expert commentary on the franchise tag and other important aspects of the CBA that will impact teams this off-season. Make sure to listen for Brandt’s thoughts on Joe Philbin, a man that he worked with for many years in Green Bay.
Last night, the Dolphins announced that Joe Philbin has been named the 10th head coach in the history of the Miami Dolphins. As news spread, several key figured from Philbin’s time in Green Bay weighed in on the man and the opportunity:
“Joe’s very important to our success. The day-to-day stuff – all the coaching responsibilities he has, installing plays and explaining plays, his role in those meetings, the way that he helps get practice run the right way – he does a ton for us.”
“As players we probably don’t even see half the stuff he does to get us ready during the week.
Update, 12:19 pm:
Well, so much for a long day in the St. Louis courtroom. Things wrapped up at about 12:10pm, Eastern, which means that today’s arguments lasted less than 90 minutes. Here’s the least you should know: the court said goodbye by saying that there’s a good chance neither party will like the decision that they come up with; that they (the court) wouldn’t be hurt if the parties settled the case (none of us would); and that we can all expect a ruling in “due time.”
As for the actual back-and-forth between the respective lawyers and the three-judge panel, most reports indicate that the two Republican-appointed judges (who are theorized to be leaning the owners’ way) did most of the talking.
