Joe Philbin Has No Regrets About 'Hard Knocks'

The Miami Dolphins didn't win a preseason game, but that didn't sour head coach Joe Philbin on his experience with HBO's 'Hard Knocks' series. Philbin told NFL.com that he has no regrets of being a part of the show. He thinks it helped bond the team together and create a stronger connection with fans.

"I'm not sitting in my office and saying, 'Geez, why did we do that?' And if we win 15 games, it's not gonna be because they were here, just like if we lose 13 games, it won't be because they were here. It was a good experience, we met a lot of good people. That's really it."

The most dramatic moment of this year's series came with the release of receiver Chad Johnson following his arrest on suspicion of domestic violence. Philbin says he didn't relish having that shown on the air, but believed Johnson should be treated like any other player. "I just felt like it was the right thing to do," Philbin said. "But it wasn't easy."

'Hard Knocks' wrapped up with its final episode on Tuesday night. The Dolphins open the regular season against the Houston Texans on Sunday.
