Before his final game as defensive coordinator of the New Orleans Saints, Gregg Williams stepped before his players and urged them to physically hurt players on the 49ers. Audio of Williams’ speech to the Saints’ defense was captured by filmmaker Sean Pamphilon, who is working on a documentary about former Saints player Steve Gleason, who is suffering from ALS. Pamphilon has put part of the audio of the profanity-filled speech on YouTube. Pamphilon also passed on the audio to Michael Silver of Yahoo Sports because, he said, he was extremely uncomfortable with what Williams said about trying to hurt 49ers quarterback Alex Smith and other players.
Audio of the speech:
I know it doesnt have anything directly to do with the Panthers, but now we do have a good idea of the things he said about Cam, Smitty, DWill, and company. We also know that it wasn't a performance system. Clearly they were head hunting. Really interesting audio, actually shocked me a little bit how intense he was.
