Coach Bum Phillips died over the weekend. He was 90 and a dictionary definition of a Texan.
He took the Houston Oilers (now the Tennessee Titans) to the AFC championship game back to back. He lost both times to the Steelers who went on to win the Super Bowl against Dallas and the LA Rams.
My favorite part is that Phillips was the author of great quotes about coaching and leadership.
It would do President Obama some good to read them:
“You fail all the time, but you aren’t a failure until you start blaming someone else.”
This is how I felt after President Obama blames everybody for everything!
“Coaching is not how much you know. It’s how much you can get players to do.”
This is a good one for ObamaCare!
Bum never became president but he could teach President Obama a thing or two, specially about blaming other people.
RIP Bum Phillips.
