Ahhh, Phillip Buchanon…..errr “Showtime.” Raiders fans can relate to your Showtime moniker Phillip, as in “want me to show you the time Pbuc got torched by the Chiefs 3rd string wideout?” “
Us diehard Raider fans who follow the Silver & Black from the first OTA’s on, should have known the very day you showed up to your ROOKIE training camp in a white stretch limo and Playboy pajamas, that something was amiss… even from a guy who played at “The U.” From day one Buchanon talked like Deion and played like Leon (Lett that be a lesson to you Phillip, tuck the fucking ball away before you start celebrating).
So now comes word that Buchanon, recently jettisoned from the mighty Lions to the hairy chubby fingers of Daniel Snyder, did not get along with his Lions Coaches…. yes coaches plural. Seems you couldn’t get along with not only head coach Jim Schwartz, but the D coordinator and DB’s coach too. Quoting Buchanon from this Detroit Free Press article ““My thing is, if I can’t talk to the defensive coordinator or I can’t talk to my position coach as we can’t make something try to work between us, then this whole thing is not going to work.”
It must be them Pbuc, not the Raiders, not the Texans, not the Lions entire coaching staff… its everybody else. This is what was said about you when you were banished to Houston… from Bill Soliday of the Conta Costa Times “When Phillip Buchanon left for Houston, nobody threw him a going away party in Oakland. His act was growing old with fans, teammates, coaches and we won’t even get into his media relations. Suffice it to say, listening to him talk about himself in the third person got a little old after awhile.”
Soliday went on to say that he didn’t think “you were a bad guy, just cocky.” Or from the immortal words of Tim Brown, after yet another great punt return followed by a just as great blunder (taking your helmet off , taunting the Chiefs fans, game changing penalty)…
“Phillip giveth and Phillip taketh away.”
