Well the joint practices between the Patriots and the Eagles up in Foxboro just got a little more interesting.
Philadelphia's talkative corner Cary Williams opened up and shared his very opinionated thoughts on the Patriots and their Spygate scandal this afternoon down at the NovaCare Complex.
The typically trash talking Williams seemed to have conflicting thoughts on New England.
From Eagles scribe Geoff Mosher's telling of Williams' rant:
“They are cheaters,” Williams said. “They are.”
“You don’t wanna give any team -- I don’t care whether it’s the Patriots or it’s the the dang Bengals, whoever it is -- you don’t want to give them an opportunity to look at your stuff,” he said. “That’s just me, from a personal standpoint. I don’t want to show none of my cards.
“So to me it’s not benefiting us because they’ve already proven who they are (from Spygate), that’s their history. And I don’t like them, not only because of that, but because I just don’t like them. I played them three of four times in a row [in the playoffs].”
Fair enough. A lot of people probably don't like the Patriots. But not everybody has the cajones to come out and call them cheaters and say they don't like them a few weeks before they face them.
But then he backtracked a little which was kind of boring and not entirely inline with his earlier comments:
“I’m trying not to go into details about it or disrespect that organization because I give that organization nothing but ... you still got to go out there and play the game,” he said. “All the credit. I give them all the credit in the world. But one fact still remains, they haven’t won a Super Bowl since they got caught.”
So they're a bunch of cheaters but they deserve credit for going out and still winning on the field once they cheated off of it?
He shoulda just stopped at the cheating and "I don't like them" parts and let the blood boil. But he reeled it in a little. Who knew Cary could do that?
