Phillips said that's just not him. However, it is not beyond Phillips take a little dig at the object of many of his critics' obsession (affection), his predecessor Bill Parcells.
Phillips said what frustrates him most is that people don't appreciate how hard it is to win games. They certainly don't appreciate how many games he has won in Dallas compared how things were before he got here.
Phillips has won 34 games and two division titles in three years as Cowboys coach. The Cowboys only won one division title from 1997 prior to his arrival in 2007.
"I take pride in that we won a lot of games," Phillips said. "People don't realize how hard it is to win games. They do if they look at the previous four years and the years before that. We won 34 games in three years. Bill (Parcells) won 34 in four years and previous one before that won 34 in six or eight. That's the only thing. I just don't think people realize how hard it is to win."
