He Ain't No Bum - Update: I've read 59 out of 142 pages

He Ain't No Bum - O.A. Phillips, Ray Buck

Bum on failure:

 

“’Part of football is failing. Hell, if you attempt forty tackles, you’re gonna fail in ten of ‘em. A guy ain’t a failure until he starts blamin’ the weather or the quarterback or somebody else. As long as he puts the blame on hisself for those ten passes he dropped, he’s got a chance to drop but nine next time.’”
