Gregg Williams Told Players to Injure 49ers Players
(NEW YORK) — On the same day that New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton and general manager Micky Loomis will have their appeals heard regarding the team’s bounty system under former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, a new wrinkle has been added to this story.
As first reported by Yahoo! Sports, documentary filmmaker Sean Pamphilon has released an audio recording that he says was a speech that he gave his players the night before the team’s playoff game against the San Francisco 49ers.
On running back Frank Gore: “We’ve got to do everything in the world to make sure we kill Frank Gore’s head. We want him running sideways. We want his head sideways.”
On receiver Kyle Williams: “We need to find out in the first two series of the game, that little wide receiver, No. 10, about his concussion. We need to f—— put a lick on him right now.”
On receiver Michael Crabtree: “We need to decide whether Crabtree wants to be a fake-ass prima donna, or he wants to be a tough guy. We need to find out. He becomes human when we f—– take out that outside ACL.”
While Payton is suspended for the entire 2012 season and Loomis is suspended for the first eight games of the season, WIlliams has been suspended indefinitely and there is no word on when or if he will be reinstated.
