Chiefs preached “Kill the head and the body will die,” too
 
Among the many incendiary statements that former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams used to fire up his players was, “Kill the head and the body will die.” There’s been a great deal of debate about what Williams meant when he talked about killing the head, but there’s no doubt about this: He wasn’t the only one in the NFL who used that phrase.

In fact, players walking into the Kansas City Chiefs’ defensive line room in 2008 were greeted with that slogan painted in huge letters: “KILL THE HEAD & THE BODY WILL DIE.”

Just another piece of evidence that shows Roger Goodell spun the whole thing trying to influence a jury pool.

Things DO even out. Roger clearly doesn't think so. There will come a time in his life when he learns it to be true, and I hope it is soon.

Dang... I could have sworn that Greg Williams said that.

That was the theory when we hunted rattlesnakes as kids.

That year their sign said "Kill the knee and the body will follow".

hmmm ... more proof it's just the culture of the NFL and not unique to New Orleans? What a surprise, eh?
