An audio recording of former Saints defensive coordinator Greg Williams giving the Saints players a speech about hurting players on the San Francisco 49ers before their playoff match up. This is a disgusting, profanity laced, speech by a coach that in my opinion should never, ever be allowed to coach or be involved in football ever again. Williams describes going for the head several times in reference to Alex Smith, Kyle Williams. He calls Michael Crabtree a premadonna, calls for his players to go for Vernon Davis’ ankle, and talks several times about injuring Frank Gore.
Williams says several times that the team will not apologize for the way they “have to play”. I hope commissioner Roger Goodell keeps this recording on his Ipod forever and never allows Williams to give a fake apology, this man deserves nothing more than to be banished from the league forever. Former 49er QB Steve Young, also a lawyer has said that if he were playing today, he would sue the Saints and I hope players take his advice. Injuries are apart of the game, football is a violent sport by nature. Injuring players on purpose, especially attempting to go for one’s head is despicable. So many retired players suffer from a vast variety of injuries after retiring from the NFL. That’s one of the biggest reasons Goodell has done so much to make the game safer. Williams spit in the face of the leagues efforts and for that, I hope he pays for it the rest of his professional life.
Here’s the audio, warning this is disgusting and profanity laced.
