ANDOVER, Md. -- The Washington Redskins had their third alumni day Sunday at FedEx Field, drawing more than 150 old-timers for a pregame picture and social on the field.

It seemed innocuous enough but not in the eyes of Carolina Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams, who went on an impromptu rant about the occasion following a 21-13 Panthers victory.

Like any high school football player with a sense of pride, Williams doesn't like to be scheduled for homecoming.

"It pissed me off," said Williams, who rushed for a 30-yard touchdown. "I picked up the Gameday (program), and I'm looking at the Gameday, and it says 'homecoming,' and I'm thinking to myself, this is the National Football League. Are you serious? Homecoming? Homecoming, and it's not like you tried to hide it. You blatantly put it on the front of the Gameday, and you talk about somebody getting fired up today. I was pissed.

Interesting...

Good for DWill getting fired up. Also, good for him for having a bad ass 30 yd TD run.

*shrugs* You usually schedule an easy opponent for your homecoming game. I guess he took it as disrespect...who knows. DeAngelo is different at times lol

It's an insult to be an Opponent for any type of homecoming game fyi for all the people who have never played a down in their life on this board....so I fully agree with Williams.

    • Could be. Hope to be.  I see the big time potential in both. In my opinion-The biggest obstical I see (not only with them but in many young players) is their self confidence. Taking it from "flashing" to "breaking out" or "to the next level" is an imaginary obstacle that stands in the way of a lot of players with potential. To get over the hump, it can take a play, a game or a season to get their mind right with the confidence that they can perform at another level.  KB and Funch have good coaching and all the skills necessary to be the guy, but in the end, they are human too. Most won't admit but the majority of people perform in a "fake it till you make it" environment so to speak.   Lack of confidence or conversely, proving to yourself you can do it, is not only important to the average Joe like you and I but to them as well.  Some guys get over the hump and exceed their own expectations enough to where it becomes standard practice. Others never quite get that bit of confidence or courage to take it one step above their self imposed ceiling.  Im optimistic so I think these two guys can break through. We will certainly have a good read on their direction this season.  PS- Did I use enough quotations?
