Just to hear the name ‘Gregg Williams’ brings up many feelings for football fans, but perhaps the most feelings from Who Dat Nation.

It may make you sick to your stomach to think about him, or it may make you angry to the point where you are wanting to throw something through a window, or it may have no effect on you at all.

Simply put, Gregg Williams is no stranger to the NFL and the New Orleans Saints.

Williams was suspended indefinitely in 2012 by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for his involvement in the ‘Bounty Gate’ scandal, but was shockingly reinstated in February by Goodell to take an assistant coaching job with the Tennessee Titans.

Williams was defended by many of his former players, including Saints cornerback Jabari Greer.

"“Gregg did a great job of creating a professional approach to football. He made us accountable to each other. He really created something that we still live off of today in our defensive room. We play with a passion and we play with an intensity that is going to be unmatched.” -Jabari Greer"

Williams was hired by St. Louis Rams Head Coach, Jeff Fisher, as the team’s defensive coordinator, replacing Tim Walton. Perhaps the interesting part of it all is that the Rams didn’t have a bad defense in 2013, finishing mostly as a middle of the road ranking in various categories. However, Williams will use his coaching to help the defense out, much like he did as an assistant for the Titans.

Whether you are or are not a fan of Williams any longer, you can’t forget that he helped tremendously in the Saints run for a Super Bowl.

What do you think about Gregg Williams, now that the dust has ‘somewhat’ settled from the Saints 2012 season?
