Proof that "kill the head" has been in use with the NFL before Gregg Williams' speech

The year was 2008 and was showing several rookies draft experience and their entry into the NFL.  It was defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey’s journey after being drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs that caught my eye.

Going into one of the defensive line meeting rooms with the Chiefs, you can clearly see a phrase posted in huge letters, “KILL THE HEAD & THE BODY WILL DIE”.  I had to rewind it several times to be sure, but there it was.

It only further cements the fact that players, coaches, and owners who came out blasting Gregg Williams and the New Orleans Saints to subscribing to such a mindset were only fooling the public, themselves, and trying to curry favor with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Williams simply was regurgitating a common phrase that is not only used in football, but in other circles as well.  The thought that he invented it or was the only one to use it is straight ludicrous.

Does the game need to focus on player safety?  Can things be done to change certain philosophies?  Sure they can.  But let’s not all take a bite out of a nice juicy steak for so many years and then act surprised like we don’t know how it got on the plate either.

    People’s lies to cover themselves the NFL knows that sound KILL THE HEAD, THE TAIL WILL DIE. Been around the league for decades and a lot of teams used these same words, like I said its not about bounty program. It’s about who hosting the Super Bowl in 2013 the New Orleans Saints are a threat to the NFL teams. They know New Orleans Saints is unstoppable so the NFL commissioner may as well use those same words, Kill the head, tail willl die. Because this is what Roger Goodell did to the New Orleans Saints suspend the head coach Sean Payton the others will die. Fans its not about bounty program its all about the Super Bowl all of this is a big scandal against the Saints for know reason. If all this was about pay – for – performance, or pay – for – injuries and the NFL had solid evidences people’s all this mess would have been over with don’t fool yourselves. Its what the NFL want the fans to think you can’t judge what you don’t have but the truth going to be told

    @JamesMorse; A lot of people’s thank I’m tripping man everything started falling apart for the New Orleans Saints in 2012. NFL commissioner suspended the head coach, assistant coach, and the GM Mickey Loomis then some of the players plus robbed the Saints for 500,000 dollars. Now the New Orleans Saints having problems with Drew Brees signing his contract the NFLPA asking Roger Goodell to check the Saints Organization out to see if they talking to Brees in good faith. Trying to give the Saints more problems backing Drew Brees in the tags issue so I’m wondering if these three are working together the NFL, NFLPA, and Drew Brees against the New Orleans Saints. All of this is strange Brees refuse contract talk so JamesMorse tell what you thank about all this mess.
