Pat Williams On Unnamed Sources, Chester Taylor, Mike Tice, And The Rumors That He’s Gay

In the post prior to this one, we had some discussion about that validity behind stories that use quotes from unnamed players and other unnamed sources.  This stems from a recent report quoting Vikings players speaking out against their head coach.

Vikings defensive tackle was asked about this situation and his answer did not disappoint.

“I don’t know,” said Williams. “That’s just all reports. Ain’t no names. That’s Sean Jensen. So that’s what Sean Jensen do. He ain’t going to give nobody no names. So I really don’t pay no attention to that. That’s all he-say, she-say stuff. He ain’t going to put no names put out there, so I don’t know if it’ true or not. That’s like somebody say I’m gay, but they don’t have to tell me who said it. I don’t know. But they’re going to believe it. They going to believe it. If somebody starts that rumor, they’re going to believe it. So that’s how it is. That’s all rumor. They not going to tell me who said it, so I don’t know.”

Williams was also brutally honest when asked about facing his former teammate Chester Taylor.

“I don’t care about no Chester,” he said. “He’s not on our team, so I really don’t care about him. if you aren’t on the Vikings, I don’t care about you. … That’s how I roll.

“Chester don’t even start, so we don’t worry about him right now. He ain’t the starting running back. He’s the backup, so we’re going to try and put the other back out and put Chester in there. At the end of the day, we don’t worry about Chester.”

“I don’t talk to him. I don’t call him to see how he’s doing,” Williams said. “He don’t call me, so what would I call him for. He’s gone. I ain’t going to waste my breath calling him. That’s a waste of time to call him. At the end of the day, I hope he’s doing bad. He’s probably thinking the same thing about me. If he ain’t thinking that way, that’s his bad. That’s how I’m thinking on Sunday. That’s how it is. I’m going to speak the truth. I ain’t going to lie.”

He also wants to make sure that the Bears keep having problems along the offensive line this Sunday.

“That’s their problem. It’ ain’t our problem,” Williams said. “So I’m glad we don’t got their problems. We’re just going to line up and keep making them have problems. That’s our main goal.”

“I love Tice,” Williams said of the Vikings former head coach that is now the offensive line coach in Chicago. “I ain’t got no problem with Tice. he was my head coach. There’s no problem. Me and Tice are cool. … I still love Tice. We’re just trying to go in there and beat him, But he’s a good offensive line coach.” 

I sure will miss Big Pat when he retires.  Always a fun guy to hear from.
