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.
