Flame if you will, but I think the GW hiring was the most significant new piece of the 2009 SB. I also think GW was the main reason we lost to the 49ers. Interesting article.
You think Goodell listened to Munchak and every other coach who has worked with GW for the past 20 years. Hell No he didn't!Of course -- because in his last year in New Orleans, Williams' blitzes were abject failures. His risk-taking against San Francisco turned out to be part of the Saints' downfall that day, including one that left the left side mostly naked when Alex Smith took off on a long end-sweep touchdown. Munchak, and the Titans, hope Williams' brash all-or-nothing schemes will be tamped down working with coaches less inclined to throw so many risky blitzes at the quarterback.
Mike Munchak, Tennessee Titans think Greg Williams will fit after bounty scandal - NFL - Peter King - SI.com"The stuff Gregg said, I heard him say it a hundred times, going back to when we [the Oilers] hired him as a quality-control in 1990. I never thought he crossed the line. It was just the way he talked. Rah rah. No one ever thought he meant to hurt anyone. If I didn't know him, his words would probably be a problem. But I knew Gregg. I'd heard it all before.
