Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams lashed out at his players at practice this week, making them do “up-downs” for their shoddy play against the Texans. Now Williams has found a new target: reporters.
When Williams addressed the media, one reporter told him he seemed tense. That got Williams riled up.
Williams was particularly annoyed that he had been asked how much he should play his starting defense in the preseason. Williams says he doesn’t even have what he views as a starting defense, he just has different packages to get the right 11 guys on the field in the right situations.
“That’s one of the things that gets on my nerves about the press about, ‘starters,’” Williams said. “Everybody on our team is a starter.”
And having to explain that makes Williams tense.
