Reminds me of the Bum Phillips' quote about Bear Bryant.
Netanyahu and Obama Comparisons: Friends of mine put forth the premise that leaders have no effect on winning or losing. I argued the other side, posing a quote from football's Bum Phillips about fellow coach Don Shula. "He can take his'n and beat your'n and take your'n and beat his'n." Such is the case between President Barack Obama and Israeli Premier, Benjamin Netanyahu. There's obvious dislike between the two leaders, but I believe it was a surprise to Netanyahu. He was shocked by the pre-hatred bubbling over from the young American President. It started in 2010 when Obama treated Netanyahu like a beggar, imprisoning him in the WH basement while he dined with his family. Before Barack abruptly left the meeting, he assigned Bibi a homework problem: How to cope with the death of the Jewish State under Obama's demand that Israel return to 1949 borders. This was to be a precondition to negotiating a two-state solution with the Palestinians. In a display of ugliness from Obama, no joint statement or photo ...
and I'll take Phil Jackson. As Bum Phillips once said, 'he'd take his and beat yours and take yours and beat his'
Good to see Curley Culp; he pretty much was the first great nose tackle in NFL history on those 70's Chiefs teams with Hank Stram as coach and then to the Houston Oilers with Bum Phillips. And he announces the Chiefs take Phillip Gaines, a corner out of Rice. Has a nice size/speed combo.
A friend sent me this stuff this morning. The best use of social media in my opinion is a good laugh. "Last year we couldn't win at home and we were losing on the road. My failure as a coach was that I couldn't think of anyplace else to play." Harry Neale, professional hockey coach "Blind people come to the ballpark just to listen to him pitch." Reggie Jackson commenting on Tom Seaver "I'm working as hard as I can to get my life and my cash to run out at the same time. If I can just die after lunch Tuesday, everything will be perfect." Doug Sanders, pro golfer "I found out that's it's not good to talk about my troubles. Eighty percent of the people who hear them don't care and the other twenty percent are glad you're having them." Tommy LaSorda, Dodgers manager "The film looks suspiciously like the game itself." Bum Phillips, New Orleans Saints coach, after viewing a lopsided loss to the Atlanta Falcons. "I won't know until my barber tells me on Monday." Knute Rockne, when asked why Notre Dame had los ...
THE QUARTERBACK AND RUNNINGBACKS SITUATION AT ALABAMA Tidesports is running another article about Alabama quarterback Blake Sims, by Aaron Suttles, their senior writer. I am not surprised, though I am a little worried, I guess, that running backs Dee Hart, Alvin Kamara, and now Altee Tenpenny have all had trouble with drugs. Nick Saban is, plain and simple, one of the best recruiters ever to coach college football. He's also one of the best to ever coach college football. But you knew -- at least I felt this way -- that when you stock up on so many good running backs -- and quarterbacks -- somebody is going to have to ride the bench, and that doesn't sit well with guys coming out of high school boasting high 4-star ratings. Hart and Kamara are already off the Alabama football team. Tenpenny is back practicing. We haven't even gotten to see what this guy can do yet, and he's already had a brush with the police over marijuana found in his car. Bum Phillips once said that he wasn't worried about Earl Cam ...

NY Daily News SATURDAY, MARCH 8, 2014, 3:57 PM ONE BUM OF AN OPERA by Christian Red Chalk this one up in the category of “I never thought I’d see those three words in the same sentence”: Bum Phillips opera. Yes, that is not a misprint, as the late Houston Oilers and New Orleans Saints coach and Texas icon is getting his due in the world more commonly associated with Luciano Pavarotti and Placido Domingo. Get ready for the “Bum Phillips All-American Opera,” which officially opens March 15 at La MaMa’s Ellen Stewart Theatre, at 66 East 4th in the East Village. The opera’s director, Luke Leonard, who earned his MFA from the Univ. of Texas in Austin, was born in Houston in 1975, the year Phillips took the reins of the Oilers. “It’s a testament to Bum’s impact that those are my earliest recollections,” Leonard tells The Score. “People say, ‘You were a baby when Bum was coach,’ but that’s how big he was. My memories of Bum Phillips are not associated with winning and losing, they ...

Ever eat at Ruggerio's Family Place Restaurant on Hillcroft, a block or 2 from W. Airport? I washed dishes & bussed tables there, 1977, or so. I met Bum Phillips & Dan Pastorini there. They had good pizza, calimari & calzones.
Happy belated 84th birthday to (in my opinion) the greatest coach of all-time, Don Shula! Also subject of one of the greatest quotes of all-time by Bum Phillips- "he could take his & beat yours then take yours and beat his". Awesome
Now that he's in Houston O'Brien won't have to worry about Earl Campbell carrying around a cardboard cutout of Bum Phillips
Here's what gets me about the NFL. NEPOTISM!!! I think does it not only hurt minority coaches, but other great coaches as well! Lets look 1. Bum Phillips who I remember from Oilers. His son Wade is a coach, and Wades son Wes is a NFL Coach!! 2. Buddy Ryan hence Rex and Rob! Mike shanahan hired his son Kyle to be the OC? 3. Marty Schotterenheimer, well his son is with the Ram's. Now keep in mind the main reason Jeff Fisher left the Titans is because they would not allow him to hire his son, so I quess he felt if I can't hire my son I might as well hire some one elses? 4. Dave Shula son of the great Don. Mike Smith is Brian Billicks brother in law? For real? 5. Andy Reid hired his son as a quality control coach? 6. Special Teams Coach John Fassel is former coach Jim Fassels son. 7. The Mora's 8. Pete Carrol hires his son Nate. It just leaves me to wander how many of these coaches sons played anywhere and was a major player on that team? I really don't know. I am all about helping famil ...
no never! Just that they draft a retired quarterback, ressurect Bum Phillips and give Earl Campbell steroids
I viewed a show on one of the ESPN channels yesterday about Earl Campbell. A forgotten man today, but in his prime was a terror to defensive lineman and defensive backs. His style of running was pure power. He was a big man, running back who played for Bum Phillips (RIP) and the Houston Oilers NFL team from a while back. This show talked of his glorious career from the College of Texas Long Horns to the Oilers team. Then focused in on what he is today, a man who can barely walk. His days of running are in the past. I gather he hurt himself whilst playing pro football. I was such a big fan of his watching him run, and I also recall him doing some commercials on TV as well. Now to see him like this is sad. One has to wonder with all the violent hits given and taken today, what sort of future some of these players look forward to in their Autumn years.
The fired so they can make the son of Bum Phillips, Wade Phillips the head coach, and draft native
Juan Castillo, run game coordinator and offensive line coach, maybe its time Harbaugh stops hiring his buddies. A point of interest to the Ravens head coach, to quote the late Bum Phillips, coaches are hired to be fired. That ring may save you for a year or two at best, just ask Brian Billick.

The one day I wear jeans this week I switch out of them into sweatpants
ODE TO BUM by Neal Morgan It was early September of 1950. I was 16-years old, suited up for football practice at Nederland High School, and sitting with all my teammates in the NHS field house. We had all been directed to do so by Coach Elbert Pickell. He was going to introduce us to the new assistant coach he had just hired. I was sitting between Charles Thomas and Pat Johnson. Eugene “Wink” Barbin sat beside Pat. Joe Sibley and Ronnie Moye were also present. We were all watching the doorway of that old dressing room the first time Bum Phillips walked in. He was right out of college — Stephen F. Austin State. It was his first coaching job. When he finally walked in, Charles Thomas nudged me in the ribs. *** ” Charles murmured when Bum stepped inside, “did you see that? When he walked in here something sorta walked in ahead of him.” I nodded but didn't speak. And, yes, I recognized that aura too. Many of us did. But neither Charles Thomas, Pat Johnson, Wink Barbin, Joe Sibley, Ronnie Moye, ...
