What we need to do is always pick Down + B, thats the flea flicker play and everytime they pick it we will get a fumble from knocking over the quarterback before the ball gets thrown back to him.

Get well soon Wade! Prayers for you and your family. I really think the defense will play inspired and want to get this one for Wade. As far as Wade possibly leaving for a head coaching job next season I just don't see it. I think he is happy here doing what he does best in his home state coaching in the same city his dad did. I really think the entire Texans situation in Houston from Owner, players, coaches, location etc fits Wade and he will stay here.

If he has a bite mark or a big, deep scratch on his arm....

He's been bitten by one of the zombies on defense.

No procedure can help him. He'll be turning soon. Just sayin'......

Just trying for levity here.

Deep down inside, I'm pissed that he mentioned he wants to be a head coach again. And now, he's "taking a leave of absence." Probably not connected, but still.

So that was my attempt at humor. Nobody had to pay me for it, so you could all stand to lighten up a bit and chuckle (and breathe).

The medical procedure is to remove Bob's foot from Wade's ass for stating to the media he would like to be head coach again.

Default Re: Marc Berman reports Wade Phillips is taking leave

I don't get his desire to return to HC, here he gets ALL the credit and NONE of the blame, unless he needs the money for a gambling debit and he values his knee caps, leaving a no lose situation behind..... doesn't make sense to me.

Hope he has a quick recovery.

I haven't heard of any Wade's comments about wanting to be a HC again. Where/when did he say this?

Okay I found it. Ugh, I sure hopes he stays as a DC for a while. We've really got something special right now in Houston.

Here ya' go:


Quote:
Wade Phillips hopes Texans' success turns into head coaching job

And, as he told the Chronicle Monday, he's hoping other teams have noticed and are appreciative, too.

"I think I have something to offer," Phillips said. "Look, I'm enjoying this. This is a super job. I want to be clear about that - I don't want anybody to think I don't enjoy what I'm doing and the people I'm associated with.

"I don't want to be somewhere else, but I'd like to be able to be a head coach again."

----------------------------

"I've had a lot of experience, and most of it has been winning," Phillips said. "I think that's what people want. It's not all me, but I do know how to do it. I've done it before."

He admitted he was embarrassed by such talk because it sounded as if he were boasting.

"It's not my personality," he said. "It's not me to say I'm the best or whatever."

Instead, he'd rather point to the facts - Phillips has spent the last 29 years as either a head coach or a defensive coordinator. After Sunday, he has reached the playoffs with the last eight teams in his first season serving in either capacity. He was 34-22 in Dallas before being fired, winning two division titles. He coached the last two teams in Buffalo that reached the postseason.

His overall win-loss record is 82-60, a percentage of .577, which, according to pro-football-reference.com, ranks Phillips among the top 50 coaches of all-time, ahead of such luminaries as Mike Shanahan, Bill Parcells, Chuck Noll, Mike Ditka, Jimmy Johnson and so many others.

Of course, all of those gentlemen have also won Super Bowls, which is only part of the case against Phillips, who realizes he might have an image problem.

"A lot of people have said I'm a good defensive coordinator but not a good head coach," he said. "No, I haven't been to the Super Bowl. But we've won a lot of games, and if you want a winner... That's my selling point."

----------------------------

"Because of the turnarounds, I think that's where my strength is - I can get you good quickly," Phillips said. "That's where everybody is, anyway. Nobody wants a six-year plan anymore - everybody wants to win now. As a head coach and coordinator, that's what I've done."
It sounds like more than just an answer to a question. It sounds like a lobby effort for a new gig.

Or trying to get the best deal out of Bob.

Had he stated that he never wanted the HC gig again, people would be calling him a liar

Dunno which is true, I'm just enjoying it while it lasts
