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

Bum on judging character:


“’There’s no way you can judge a player’s character on film. You have to do that face to face, and you have to have a coaching staff who can evaluate character, too. Not everyone can do that. And, I’m gonna tell you now that we have been damn successful in selecting people with character. I mean that as a tribute to our assistant coaches and I mean it as a tribute to the people who we have drafted and their mommies and daddies who raised them.’”
