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

Q&A with Bum after drafting Earl Campbell:


Q: How long will it take for Campbell to make a significant contribution?

Bum: “’Oh, a day… maybe two’”


Q: Fullback or halfback?

Bum: “’It don’t matter much where he’s coming from. It’s where he’s gonna go that counts.’”


Q: You’ve noticed that he gets up very slowly after being tackled?

Bum: “’Yep, but then I notice he goes down slow, too.’”
