Williams ... Genius?

I've been thinking about Williams comments from the other day. That idiot Florio, who I'm sure has never played a down of football, made him out to be a cross between Hitler and Stalin.

But more importantly I was thinking, does coming after Manning with all of those blitzes really make sense? This is a different situation than the last two weeks. Manning will tear the Saints 'D' if they just do the same thing they've been doing. Also, if that was your game plan, do you need to announce it on the radio?

I don't think so. It's more likely that he'll do something completely different. Against the Pats I remember a lot of three man lines with max coverage. No need to fear the run game this week. I think we'll be in store for a very different plan this week then the Cards or Vikes.

If Payton/Williams have shown one thing this year it's that when they have two weeks to get ready for someone, the other team is not prepared for what they come up with and I think SB44 will be no exception.

Hey Rickh Good post I was sitting thinking the same thing myself. Make Manning expect something and the give him something completely different.

What Williams brings to the table is the ability to adjust quickly during the game. In the past our D Coach would lay out the game plan and just stick to it with limited adjustments.

You know Manning watched Favre get rocked in the NFCCG and I think Williams is trying to sew some thoughts about getting hit all day in Manning's head.

Re: Williams ... Genius?

I think you still try to get to Manning. Maybe not all out Blitz. But you have to unleash the Hounds every once in a while. I also think you can't play afraid of what manning is going to do...he needs to fear what we are going to do.

I totally agree. I don't think GW or SP makes mistakes like announcing the gameplan prior to the game being played. What GW said is more than likely just a lil pyschological warfare being used against #18 and that O line. No need to worry

Re: Williams ... Genius?

Even if he was announcing his game plan - His comments were taken out of context by the media morons AND by the fan morons who obviously can not read what is in front of them.

Americans often suffer from a form of brain fart in which they read - hear - see only what they want to (or what they are told to) This is yet another case of the dumbing down of America.

The media wants to create another image for the Saints besides the lovable underdogs so GW is being made out as an orgre.

Re: Williams ... Genius?

When those kind of comments are made (and mind you Williams never said "We are going to break his legs, snap his neck, etc.) it is better to listen to former defensive guys talk about it. Mike Golic has defended the hits on Favre, and what Williams has said. What surprised me is that former QB Ron J also defended those hits, saying that it is part of the game.

I bet they go after Peyton just like they went after Farve.
