METAIRIE, La. ― One of the lasting images from January’s NFC championship game is of Vikings quarterback Brett Favre on his back, writhing in pain after being hit by Saints’ defensive linemen Remi Ayodele and Bobby McCray.

Months later during Minnesota training camp, the Vikings called the Saints dirty.

All that did was make New Orleans defensive coordinator Gregg Williams smile.

“A defense has to be respected,” Williams said. “They’ll be respected when they’re feared. None of the things we’re trying to do is cheap. They’re aggressive. What we’re going to do is play hard.

“We’re not going to apologize. I’m not going to apologize for how my guys play.”

In fact, in the mind of New Orleans’ mad scientist coordinator, the Vikings are playing right into his hands. So much so, you might see him dial up even more blitzes in the season opener.

“When the other team is worried about protecting themselves or protecting the ball, we all like that a lot better,” Williams said. “Maybe there will be more than 39 takeaways this year.”

REP Points for G.W.!

I have been looking at all the negative talk about our defense. It use to make me mad. The Dome Patrol was feared, as well as the purple people eaters and the steel curtain. Fear of a defense is a good thing. I want our defense to have the attitude of, "If you touch that ball we are going to make you pay....with extreme pain!" Instead of, "Oh I hope he doesn't run at me".

Coach Williams is one of the reasons we won the Super Bowl last year.
Please dial up more blitzes.

Months later during Minnesota training camp, the Vikings called the Saints dirty.

Is there anyway we can lock Coach P and GW up in contract for the rest of their lives? This guy is the perfect compliment to SP. We have absolutely fantastic coaches. How can you not like a defensive coach that has turned our defense into one that is actually feared and called dirty. I love this!!!!

It's football. You're not supposed to be all soft and girly.

Coach Williams shouldn't have to apologize. Bravo!
