Gregg Williams to Saints: “Kill the Head and the Body Will Die” [Audio NSFW]

While working on his documentary ‘The United States of Football,’ filmmaker Sean Pamphilon was given incredible access to the New Orleans Saints.  Pamphilon had forged a close friendship with former Saints’ special teamer and ALS sufferer Steve Gleason.  Gleason is featured prominently in Pamphilon’s film and helped the filmmaker earn the Saints’ trust.

Pamphilon attended a defensive meeting before New Orleans’s playoff game against the 49ers.  Pamphilon recorded former Saints’ defensive coordinator Gregg Williams instructing his defense to target specific players and ‘go for their heads.’

For the record, this audio provides no evidence of a bounty system.  It is an intense coach trying to fire up his defense before a playoff game.  While there are some references to targeting specific players and ‘killing the head’, there is nothing out of the ordinary here.  The only thing it proves is that Roger Goodell’s crusade to limit violent hits and head trauma is largely ignored in the sanctuary of locker rooms and private team meetings.
