I miss that Son of a Bum

Recommended Posts

 

Cool to see him honoring his late father.

 

I know that his tenure as Buffalo's HC had some ups and downs, but his work as a coordinator has been top-notch for a very long time.

 

Should Wade get any Hall Of Fame consideration?

The guy has been on top of the defensive game for a long time but you don't hear him mentioned like you do fat rex and others who are much more vocal

 

Watching him scheme against Belichick and Brady is gonna be fun. He did it well in Denver.

He is why I am cheering for the Rams (outside of the obvious). I had a girlfriend when he was with the Bills call him Captain Kangaroo

He still gets a lot of hate for being the one to bench Flutie for Johnson in the 99 WC game even though it's been said by multiple people it wasn't his decision.

He's one of the great defensive minds to ever coach.  Maybe there's room for long time coordinators like Wade and Norv to get into the hall.  They've shaped many players careers.

The coat and hat look good on him.  As far as his tenure in Buffalo is concerned, I guess Ralphie was being somewhat meddlesome at the time.  His line about having a punt catcher instead of a punt returner was one of the long time classics.

Most accessible/ real HC of all time. He talked to a bunch of us idiot fans for about 15 minutes the year I went to Rochester for camp. Just a genuinely terrific human being and a very good DC. Will always be a Wade fan.

That was his first and last year at SJF.

I think it is common knowledge and often talked about how Wade is a great defensive coordinator. Rex Ryan is mentioned only in regards to his baffoonery.

For this week, GO RAMS!

The "Plan" to trip up Brady is in the nuclear codes "football" in his right hand. Guard that case with everything you've got Son of Bum! :)

Was it really? It was 2000. I know that because it was the year that followed the Nashville bull****. Was that their first year in Rochester or just SJF?

 

Edit. Used the google function and 1999 was indeed the last year at Fredonia. I know it was difficult to even get into the practices. Not sure how much of that had to do with it being their first year or if that's common.

I don't think coordinators are HOF eligible, and his tenure as a HC won't get him into Canton.

Wade Phillips deserved the Super Bowl MVP when Denver won "with" Manning.

 

Ralph was a fool to let him go.

He gets respect. Way more than he should.

Wade has experience playing the so called genius---evil empire----hopefully he can mixed it enough to help propel the Rams to victory. Belichick thrives on tendencies & film study. I'd like to see Wade move Darnold around from DT to DE at times.

Wade is a great coordinator, probably one of the best ever. He has shown throughout his career that he can be prepare for almost any challenge (including Brady). He has also shown that he can make in game adjustments if things are not going his way. I think that trait has been improved since his time here. The problem for Wade was when he was head coach here and to some extent the head coach of the Broncos in 1993 and after us in Dallas is that he is a really bad game manager for both sides of the ball. His in game decision making was really slow and he was really poor  playing chess offensively. I do hope he wins again though and defeated BB and Brady would be extra sweet!

...never as flashy as Bum in his 10 gallon white hat coaching the Oilers, but a legend....like an old "John Cameron Swayze Timex" that just "keeps on tickin'" at age 71 and STILL on top of his game....sad stain on Bflo lore was 1999 when RW tried to screw him out of his 800 grand with the ".....you resigned...no you fired me" debate.....thankfully arbitrator ruled in Wade's favor and he got paid....he is in the same "remarkable" discussion as Dick LeBeau, another defensive genius who went to age 80.....nothing better than to see Wade get a ring as well as he and LeBeau both make it to the HOF....
