Next week the New England Patriots will practice with the Philadelphia Eagles, and one player who could be the target of some anger between the teams is Cary Williams. The Eagles cornerback went off a few days ago calling the Patriots cheaters. Well today he confirmed his hatred toward the team, and clarified that he is not scared of the team.
Williams had called the Patriots “cheaters” because they were fined by the NFL in 2007 for illegally filming opponents’ practices.
“Did I say the wrong thing? No.” Williams said. “I stand firm on what my beliefs are, and that’s just that. I didn’t tell a lie. At the end of the day, that did happen. It’s in the history books. As far as I’m concerned, I made a comment about it and that’s that.”
Williams was then asked if he thought the Patriots would be gunning for him during the practices in Foxborough, Massachusetts, next Tuesday through Thursday before the two teams play Aug. 15.
“I don’t care,” he replied. “That’s the whole point. I don’t care if they come after me or not. That doesn’t scare me. My mentality is I’ve never been a punk, never been a sissy, never been a guy that’s going to be a scared guy. I don’t play this game in fear at all. I don’t fear no man. As far as I’m concerned, you put your pants on as well as I put my pants on. We’re going to man up when we get there.”
Well it sure will be a fun practice next week, what do you think?
