Two weeks ago, former New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams was suspended indefinitely by the NFL for running a bounty program from 2009 to 2011.
Now evidence has surfaced that Williams encouraged his players to injure their opponents.
Documentary filmmaker Sean Pamphilon recorded Williams giving his team a speech the night before the Saints played the 49ers in this past season's playoffs.
During the rant, Williams told his players to try to hurt specific 49ers players.
We need to find out in the first two series of the game, the little wide receiver, number 10, about his concussion, he told his team. We need to decide whether (Michael) Crabtree wants to be a fake (expletive) prima donna, or he wants to be a tough guy...he becomes human when we (expletive) take out that outside ACL.
Multiple times during the speech, Williams told his players to attack running back Frank Gore's head.
Kill the head and the body will die. We've got to do everything in the world to make sure we kill Frank Gore's head.
There have been mixed reactions to the tape.
Many people have expressed their outrage, and feel it vindicates Roger Goodell and the NFL for giving the Saints such harsh suspensions.
Some former players were not as upset, saying they've heard coaches give speeches similar to the one Williams doled out that night.
Former Giants linebacker Carl Banks told Ebenezer Samuel of the New York Daily News that he wasn't surprised when he heard the tape.
Some of the stuff was over the line, but 90 to 95 percent was what you would hear within most (defensive) rooms, said Banks.
Here is the audio of Williams' speech, which contains explicit language.
