“One year ago we knocked on the door. This year we beat on the door. Next year we’re gonna kick the sumbitch in.”

From Wikipedia:

In 1975, Phillips was named head coach and general manager of the Oilers, and served in that capacity through 1980.[1] As coach of the Oilers, he became the winningest coach in franchise history (59-38 record). He was known for his trademark cowboy hat on the sidelines, except when the Oilers played in the Astrodome or other domed stadiums. (He stated that his mother taught him not to wear a hat indoors; his former boss Bear Bryant similarly refused to wear his trademark fedora during indoor games.)[2] Under Phillips, the Oilers reached the AFC Championship Game in two consecutive seasons, losing to the Super Bowl-champion Steelers 34-5 in 1978 and 27-13 in 1979. Both teams were members of the competitive AFC Central Division, and thus played three times in both 1978 and 1979, fueling an intense rivalry. During this period of league-wide AFC dominance, some commentators considered Houston and Pittsburgh to be the two best teams in the NFL. Phillips remarked at the time, “The road to the Super Bowl goes through Pittsburgh.”
