NFL  > Houston Texans  > Wade Phillips takes a leave of absence!!!??
December 14, 2011, 01:07 PM
Phillips to take two week leave of absense? NOW!? My guess is heart bypass with angioplasty is possible in that time frame or shingles.....

Tough break for him and the Texans. They just qualify for playoffs but have lost QBs, his defense is key to winning. Good luck to them.

Oh wait...that's Rob Ryan. What was I thinking?

Not a chance, he's seen how well it worked for Rex! Rex nearly choked on his own vomit at Thanksgiving....

I'm speaking out my cornholio....I do know that the issue he had was that he ate too much at thanksgiving. I made up the part about the vomit. Folks with those bands have to eat very little portions. Doesn't mean they can't eat more but when they do it all goes haywire. As the name implies it is a restrictive band and it causes some folks big problems.

I should learn not to read these threads before going to lunch.

Good luck to the guy, must be something that cannot be put off.

My bet is you'll eat less, which is a good thing :-)

Yeah, it must be something that just could not wait. Timing isn't the best for sure.

He always seemed too nice of a guy to be a head coach in this league. Say what you want about Coughlin being (possibly too) hard-nozed, but nowadays you're better off being more militant than lackadaisical with today's players.I'm not a Cowboys fan so I don't have any lingering bad feelings about how it worked out for him there like some others might, but I hope the best for the guy.

I am a Cowboys fan, and was hoping Wade would make it. He's from around my parts here in southeast Texas. But, he wasn't able to handle both H/C and D/C

Agreed. I kind of liked his dad, too. I remember one time--I think it was the AFC Championship Game--and some idiot stole Bum's hat after the fans stormed the Three Rivers turf after the Steelers won. Another fan grabbed it and gave it back to Bum. I like to think of the latter as a real Steelers fan.

I remember that!! Nice call, man Bum's face went from mad (from losing) to WAAYY Angry in about a 1/4 second. Bum was a hoot.

Teams need discipline and Wade (Cupcake) had none for the guys. It was a welcome change after Parcell's but it doesn't work in the long run. You can't beat them down but you need accountability and repercussions.

NIce work by Coughlin keeping Bradshaw sidelined for a FULL half last week (didn't seem to hurt them). Huge game and he sits him. BIG statement to the other guys that Curfew matters. Suspect that bradshaw knew the Kickoff was 8:00 PM and not a 1:00 or 4:00 game but the curfew was unchanged so he blew it off....maybe he hooked up with Irvin for a little Gentlemen's Club action in big D?
