If true, this may be the worst example of how insane Gregg Williams really is. If true, there is no way Williams will ever coach in the NFL again.
Yahoo! Sports' Mike Silver has added the latest layer to the Bountygate story, and this time there is some pretty damning audio evidence of how psychotic the former New Orleans defensive coordinator really is.
The story reveals that Williams delivered a bone-chilling speech prior to the NFC divisional round matchup between his Saints and the San Francisco 49ers. A filmmaker working on a feature about the Saints' Steve Gleason, was in the room for a speech delivered by Williams at the team hotel prior to the game.
In the expletive-laced address, Williams specifically mentions numerous members of the San Francisco offense, as he instructs his players to take them out. According to the Yahoo! report, Williams rubbed his fingers and thumb together at one point in an apparent reference to money.
The filmmaker, Sean Pamphilon, actually has audio of the speech which he posted to his website. It can be heard by clicking here, but there are a couple of main points to really look at.
Williams spoke about targeting specific players, and in one case, targeting a player with a history of concussions.
"We need to find out in the first two series of the game, the little wide receiver, No. 10, about his concussion," Williams said in reference to Niners wide receiver Kyle Williams. "We need to put a [expletive] lick on him right now. He needs to decide. He needs to [expletive] decide."
Williams didn't stop there.
"We need to decide whether [wide receiver Michael]Crabtree wants to be a fake-ass primadonna, or he wants to be a tough guy. We need to find out. He becomes human when we [expletive] take out that outside ACL. "
Perhaps the best part of the speech — in hindsight at least — is what Williams had to say about San Francisco quarterback Alex Smith.
"Alex Smith, in the preseason game, when you guys [expletive] avalanched that [expletive], had eyes that big. You all saw 'em."
Hopefully Williams and the Saints saw Smith's eyes after he threw the game-winning touchdown with just seconds left to play to send New Orleans home and perhaps end Williams' coaching career.

"He's a pain in the ass."

Happy Opening Day to you, too, Amber Rigdon.
