Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin is loosening up to his team as he approaches his second season at the helm. Philbin feels that he now has a good deal of players that he meshes well with and are on the same page as him, so he's being more personal and engaging with them, reports the Sun-Sentinel. The human side is most likely a welcome site for some, who reportedly didn't care much for his robotic, and sometimes standoff-ish rookie season. Per the Sun-Sentinel: ' Nowadays the players' attitude toward Philbin, who celebrated his 52nd birthday on July 2, seems to be changing and perhaps it's because Philbin is changing. During mini-camp Philbin was mentioning how he noticed linebacker Koa Misi's speed and said, "We were watching a tape and there he is, just haulin' ass." It's not phrase you'd expect to hear from the buttoned-down Philbin. It's an indication things are different. '
