Joe Philbin: Miami Dolphins don't possess 'swagger'

Joe Philbin was asked this week if a three-game winning streak had instilled a level of swagger in his Miami Dolphins.

Philbin -- ever the straight man -- replied by explaining he didn't know what "swagger" was. On Friday, the coach arrived with the dictionary explanation of the buzzword in hand.

"OK, here you have it (the definition of swagger): 'To walk or conduct oneself with an insolent air, strut, to boast or brag,' " he said. "So obviously swagger doesn't fit us whatsoever."

"Swagger" and "narrative" are in an epic battle for the most overused word of the NFL season. This is the top rivalry to watch in the season's final weeks.
