Cary Williams talks 'doormats,' but this time not in regard to home furnishings

Last week, Cary Williams was kicked out of practice for fighting with Patriots rookie wide receiver Aaron Dobson. Both Chip Kelly and Bill Belichick agreed that if any players got in a fight, they would be ejected from practice. Williams said the Patriots were playing dirty, talking trash, and he felt that his former teammates in Baltimore never would have stood for it.

Last week, Cary Williams was kicked out of practice for fighting with Patriots rookie wide receiver Aaron Dobson. Both Chip Kelly and Bill Belichick agreed that if any players got in a fight, they would be ejected from practice. Williams said the Patriots were playing dirty, talking trash, and he felt that his former teammates in Baltimore never would have stood for it.

“It was nothing like this [in Baltimore], I’ll tell you that,” said Williams. “Different organization, different team, different coach, different colors. I can’t expect this team to be the same as Baltimore was.”

“Our philosophy was to stop the run, be stout upfront, hit people in the mouth, be aggressive, throw the first punch. That was what we were always taught. In the case with the Patriots practice, I felt the same way.”

“They came in here talking. They had a lot of jokes and kikis, and laughs, and a lot of dirty plays that were going on.  There was a reason behind [why I got in a fight], a reason behind the madness, but at the end of the day I still have to do things the way coach wants me to do them, and I understand that, but it definitely would have been a different situation if it was in Baltimore. It wouldn’t have been a fun practice for the Patriots, I’ll tell you that.”

No word on what a “kiki” is.

Williams also talked about the toughness of the Eagles defense. “I think Brian Dawkins alluded to it a couple times when I spoke to him," Williams said. "He was talking about ‘Bring that fear back here.’ Right now I don’t know if there’s anybody out there in the league that fears this defense, especially after last week.”

“I don’t want to be a doormat, and that’s just how I feel about the situation.”
