Ricky Williams took it to Tony Sparano this week. And it’s only Tuesday.
Williams called Coach Sparano a “micromanager,” and admitted that he believed the coach “lost the locker room” at the end of the season. This was rather evident with the team’s performance this past Sunday. In part, Williams said:
Usually after a rough season there’s a sense of relief when it’s over with, but I didn’t feel like that,” he said. “It’s the contrast with what they have going on in New England and what we have going on here, and it’s a very stark contrast.
They had less to play for than we did … and they played harder than any team we played all year, and I just expect that from my team.
I’m not angry at my teammates. I’m angry at the situation. That’s the coaches, myself, teammates, that’s everyone. That’s the whole environment that we have there, and I’m just frustrated that it’s not better.
The Sparano stuff is good. However, the Henne zing is great.
Williams was asked what the main difference is between Miami and New England. The Henne diss followed. “They have a quarterback,” Williams replied.
Plain. And. Simple.
Williams is a free agent, and clearly has no plans on returning to Miami, especially if Sparano somehow survives tis winter. Specifically, Williams also said he’d like to “have a chance to play a lot and be a part of something big next year.”
