Wade Phillips kicked out officiating crew from Bills’ facility over Music City Miracle
Wade Phillips hates the Music City Miracle. He hated it even more when NFL referees tried to pass it off as an example of good officiating.
According to the former Bills coach’s book, “Son of Bum,” an NFL officiating crew traveled to the Bills’ facility in the offseason after Buffalo’s 22-16 loss to the Titans in the AFC wild-card round (courtesy of the Music City Miracle). They were there to review rule changes for the 2000 season, using video of certain plays from the previous year to highlight how and why certain calls were made on the field.
“I’d be lying to you say it doesn’t give you a chip (on your shoulder). Especially being a competitor,” Peterson said Wednesday, via The Advocate. “It’s not my main focus. It’s something that drives you a little bit. After 30, because it was the same back then. ‘Oh, he’s 30.’ Then I ended up leading the league in 2015. Same thing the next year. Stuff will continue to repeat itself until I finish.”
New Orleans’ decision to sign Peterson was a head-scratcher. Already set at lead back with Mark Ingram proving last year that he can handle a larger load, Sean Payton decided to further flood his backfield talent pool by bringing Peterson into the mix.
The team then traded away next year’s second-round pick to draft speedy Tennessee back Alvin Kamara in the third round.
