Gregg Williams Urged Saints To Injure 49Ers

yeah i think it's important that what this audio is evidence of be separated from the concept of toughness. tough is the people who had to play against this horseshit for years. gameplanning attempted assault on opponents is the opposite of tough. injuring the other team is something you resort to when you have a lack of toughness and don't think you can beat them any other way.

It's one thing when you have a few rogue players doing it. It's another when it's sanctioned by the organization. You know what that's called? Organized crime. Intentionally trying to end careers. SMH.

ACLs and reinjuring guys coming off previous concussions is way over the top. But some of the head reference from what I heard was talking about getting into their mental frame of mind and affecting their thoughts not hitting them in the head literally Getting in their head in the pile means talking crap while he is down not taking a cheap shot to the head while he is lying there. I am not trying to defend a piece of crap like him and I do think he advocated for guys to take late hits and try to hurt folks but 2/3rds of what he said was the kind of material you can find any defensive coordinator say. He just took it over the top and crossed the line too often.

If he knew this was being taped and he said all that, I wonder what he did say when no one was around to capture it. It could have been a lot more explicit that this.

I can see why you would believe that, but it's kind of hard to agree when he uses the phrase "we want to kill Frank Gore's head." Especially, when he follows this up with "Little 32, we want to knock the fug out of him", "we hit fugin' Smith right here (points to chin)", "Go lay that motherfuger out", "Early, affect the head. Continue, touch and hit the head", "We need to find out...the little wide receiver, number 10, about his concussion", "we fuging take out that outside ACL", and "...how many times we can beat Frank Gore's Head".

He's definitely talking about injuring the other team, and he's definitely talking about aiming for the head physically.

I hear guys saying I want you to kill him, blow him up. Does that mean hit him hard or literally kill him and blow him up with a bomb?? When you hit the head it is mentally or physically?? Coaches do talk in metaphors all the time. Again I am not trying to excuse him as the bounty program is evidence there was a plan to hurt players but honestly just to hear what he said in isolation of what else we know, it is not that different from what I know is being said in other lockers rooms as well. Just not to the same extreme perhaps.

So normally, I don't spend a lot of time on opposing fans messageboard. But I went over there just to see what they were saying about this. My God, those mother fuggers are the most dumbest ignorant homers of any fanbase I've ever seen.

In addition to his suspension I think they need to throw him in a cage with Smitty for a hour

The part that got me was where he was talking about taking someone out while they were on the sidelines. And their coaches....take them out too....and their fans....take them out too...seriously....WTF is wrong with that man?
