Listen: Greg Williams, NFL, Defensive Coordinator discussed on Gallant at Night
"Also play another rousing edition of ask McLean anything at the top of the hour. As well hard knocks episodes who was, last night right and look we have to episodes of hard knocks that we've watched we haven't really been. Able to talk about it as much as we'd, like to because, last week, we, had, some, limitations our wise with the show I combined some of the things that I like most in the first episode of hard knocks and in the second episode. Of hard knocks the best audio of, hard? Knocks is, a small clip that took place in the first episode. And it came from a very very familiar hard knocks face his name is Greg. Williams there are people in this room, that chose to be here That wanted to. Be here I turned down seven other jobs they come here I think you know Greg Williams I personally I've known him since. Nineteen ninety I just I find. Him to be Bearable I read it the fact that he continues every job. In the NFL this guy this is a minor note but I've watched a Bill peppers play. A lot in Michigan, one thing I know I know this Jibril peppers. Is really good when. He is moving forward this dude played peppers, twenty two yards off. The line of scrimmage routinely that's just bad strategy if this guy was? The, Texas defensive coordinator. I'll be, flipping out, I hate. Him and, he stole the playbook that what's. His new book yeah regained the windows When we face them in the, AFC championship Gregory was. Just asked about acted like there was the craziest thing if he's heard? I, hate Greg Williams John I'll ask you, this John various guys that have played for Greg Williams told me like you actually like him once you learn to stop taking him seriously like he's he's like this angry flailing old man that, you can't really take that seriously because he's so angry does not that you would. Characterize them like that Well I've done a lot of charity work with Greg and he's been outstanding doing charity work with me. Here in Nashville and what are you. Doing to us right coaches like Joe Gibbs hired him you know he had a clash with Tom Donahoe the general manager. When he was in buffalo which is not surprising but Greg. Was, highly thought of by a lot of coaches who keep learning. And he's very demonstrative demonstrative, animated he takes people, on e. defenses players most of the players I've known who played for him would run. Through a wall for he is quite demonstrative and looked, he warned the team that they better buck up or else Greg the dragon's going to come to the locker rooms and ask I came in here I don't want. That, guy to be here this year unless you tell me I. Have to come back Am contending that he won't be in a whole this year Players act. Like it I don't know. If there's ever I don't know there's ever been a season the Greg Williams has been, there where like his, inner a-hole doesn't, come out at times but you do see I will say I've come around to. Him in two episodes because he does show like. A humorous I think, he, balances out a lot of it I'll still let like. Look I think the bountygate stuff was absolute like ridiculous trash I think it's like, one of the worst things I've. Ever seen a coach do especially when you're leading young men I read. Like for people who think that that's normal in the NFL, it pisses me off like an angry that people thought that like we're all. Out there putting bounties on people's ACL's and stuff like that that angers me and I'll never forgive him for, that because he wears those stupid sunglasses and has an caller go t just one color is not that. Might forgive him an interesting line written by Washington, Post columnist, Mike wise when Greg was defensive coordinator in Washington he said if you'd think if you don't think the second g and Greg stands for genius Just ask him yeah oh yeah he'll tell you he's a good great self. Promoter he is so you saw uncle Greg the, dragon episode, one those are clubs from episode one last night old Greg Williams was mad again Hi Time You're on, defense get the over here Get around that Hoddle When you don't get in and out of the, huddle you don't substitute when you don't communicate when you. Don't you don't belong and I don't care what Young guys this is not college football anymore So we need to understand and we decision that I have a focus and I haven't. Energy to go out and play? Our way do we understand that Yeah there you go I'll appreciate, if there's one thing that I won't follow the. Coach, for attacking its poor offer taking effort that's one thing whenever you but the problem with Greg Williams I feel like he attacks everything all the time so and that's why his. His defensive haven't actually historically been all that good Jason different times I have when they want Super Bowl in New Orleans defense was. Right when they were Yeah. They were more but that was the defense board based on. Takeaways and it was there actual quality down to down yeah I'm just thinking about. Just in terms of his average ranking per year you look at Wade Phillips like wow he's got an astoundingly high number of top ten defense is, I'm not sure I'll I'll, double check here's Ron that. Greg Williams I hate Hugh Jackson I don't. Believe in whatsoever Todd, Haley I love we'll get the Todd Haley a little. Bit, later so last. Night we saw Corey Coleman featured at the very beginning of the episode John's guy you, see all of. His shoes at the house, that he has a thousand perhaps, is investing a little bit too much money and. Issues, but whatever that's his choice he has an NFL contract I'm supposed you can afford all of that we saw Todd Haley getting annoyed with Corey Coleman and then a climactic scene In the red zone Ball inside the team your chastity That's about what, has been Show me otherwise. I'll get excited."
