Bum Phillips

We heard that Bum passed away yesterday, and I wanted to pay my respects. Bum was one of the more colorful and interesting people in the NFL - and that's at least part of the reason that the league was so fun in the 1970s.

Bum coached the Oilers in the 70s, and for the most part it was a pretty good rivalry, with Bum often getting the best of Shula. But he had a great quote that I think was worth sharing - referring to Shula he said:

"He can take his'un and beat ur'un, and then he can take ur'un and beat his'un"

High praise, indeed.
