    Anyone else see/hear that on TV?
    That is all you need to know about what kind of a coach Wade Phillips is.

    Bum was HC of the great Earl Campbell teams of the late '70s in Houston. He was a good guy, had a great sense of humor and a folksy way about him. His odd nickname added to his colorful persona.

    He was a great coach that got a lot out of very little talent and was very quotable.

    :yeahthat: ... I was an Oiler fan because i was a huge Earl Campbell fan ... after the Patriots of course. Bum got alot out of that team ... remember Billy "White Shoes" Johnson ... a great player back then.

    Didn't need to see it on tv. Already knew it.

    Great analysis though, using a nickname of a legendary football coach to hate on his son.

    Is this guy in his 90's or does Wade Philips just look older than he is? When they showed that guy I was reminded of the "Mandelbaums" on Seinfeld.

    "You think you're better than me?"

    "You think you're better than HIM?" :rocker:

    Yes. Pepper Johnson played linebacker for Bill Belichick when BB was a defensive coordinator for the Giants, then coach of the Browns. This was in the 80's and 90's. In the National Football League. In New York and Cleveland. :rolleyes:

    Your age is really showing here. Don't embarrass Patriots fans any further.

    Bum Phillips was a great head coach. Nothing bad to say about him. Do your homework.

    I kind of miss the old coaches. Philips was very quotable. So was Jerry Glanville. Parcells was great in that regard.

    Hilarious that this is thread-worthy.

    Bum is one of the better known coaches of the good old NFL, and is a legend in many parts of the country where they know football pretty well.

    Sorry kid, but this is old news.

    Anyone who didn't know that is outing themselves as a johnny come lately football fan and by no means a student of the game.
