Big Pat Talks Retirement

There has been a lot of speculation that Pat Williams could retire after this season.  He recently told Access Vikings that he would do just that if the Vikings won the Super Bowl… and he would do it in style.

Even though there is one more year left on his contract, Pat says, “It don’t matter,” he said. “That’s all I want is that trophy. I’ll walk off the field with my tights on because I’m throwing everything to the fans. Shoulder pads, helmet, everything. I’ll walk off with tights and socks. That’s how I’m walking off the field. I’ve been thinking about it all year.”

Pat is not bashful when it comes to talking about Super Bowl hopes. 

“I’m just having fun,” he said. “Everybody is on the same page around here and I just feel it’s close. I just come to work every day and smell that trophy. That’s what I’m smelling right now is that trophy. I smell that trophy and an ass whooping. That’s what I smell.”

While many fans would be sad to see Pat retire, it is understandable that he would be considering it at his age.

 “I’m good coming off the field,” he said, laughing. “Jared ain’t coming off. He’s still young, but once he gets those years, he’ll be like, ‘OK coach, I’ll take this break.’ I’ll take the plays.”

Despite Pat needing to take breaks on passing downs, Williams is still one of the team’s most respected veterans.

“Everybody respects me in the locker room,” he said. “I’m just Pat. Everybody knows I’m going to say what’s on my mind all the time.”

It is good to see him so excited about this season, and hopeful about their playoff chances.  Pat is looking for an opportunity that I think we all could agree that he deserves.

“I’m trying to win a Super Bowl,” he said. “I’ll quit then after I win the Super Bowl this year. I’ll go into the sunset smiling. That’s how you want to end it.”

    Wow…I never dreamed, even on the darkest and strangest of nights, that I would EVER be saying these words, but here goes:

    I hope to see a half naked Phat Pat running around the field this February.

    I feel dirty, but it was worth it.

      Moreover, every last one of you have to also root for a half naked huge man to be running around the field.

      Yeah, that’s a bitter pill to swallow, ain’t it?
