Gregg Williams has apparently learned nothing from reality television. Never say anything incriminating around a rolling camera. Williams, the former New Orleans’ Saints defensive coordinator, was caught on tape by a documentary filmmaker saying some pretty dirty stuff. The best part of the story is that when Williams made the statements the investigation into the bounty program had already begun. And I thought it couldn’t get any worse than all the extremely angry looking photos of Williams that are everywhere, I mean really has anyone seen him smile?
It is suspected that the bounty program originated with Williams‘
hunger games defensive strategy but still Saints coach Sean Payton was suspended for a year from the Saints over the scandal. Payton appealed his sentencing today with league commissioner Roger Goodell. Of course not even Williams has the balls to appeal his indefinite ban. I am not sure what a typical defensive coordinator speech should sound like because let’s face it football is a game where guys ram into one another but something tells me these quotes are a little off.
Here are my favorite Williams’ Quotes:
1. “Kill the head, the body will die.” (Apparently his favorite phrase. The head being the QB)
2. “We’re gonna swarm. We’re gonna dominate the line of scrimmage. And we’re gonna kill the [expletive] head. Every single one of you, before you get off the pile, affect the head … continue to touch and affect the head.” (This is in reference to 49ers’ Alex Smith and is kind of pornographic towards the end, “continue to touch and affect the head,” is that just me?)
3. “We need to find out in the first two series of the game, the little wide receiver, No. 10, about his concussion. We need to [expletive] put a lick on him, move him to decide. He needs to decide.” This is in reference to 49er Kyle Williams who had previously suffered concussions. What is the decision in this question, to have a concussion or not?
