We just posted a column by Monte Poole on his reaction to exiled ex-Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams’ speech to his players the night before playing the 49ers in the NFC playoffs in January.
While agreeing that Williams has been wrong for his role in the bounty-gate scandal, Monte thinks that Williams’ speech was only a bit worse than what the late Al Davis used to say about the Raiders’ opponent’s quarterback: “The quarterback must go down, and he must go down hard.”
Do you agree with Monte? Was it wrong for Al to openly say that? Or is it just all part of the game?
Incidentally, here’s a link to the full audio of Williams’ speech to his players. Warning: This contains a LOT of profanity!
