49ERS' WHITNER THINKS WILLIAMS' ACTIONS WERE REALLY DISGUSTING (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/04/05/49ers-whitner-thinks-williams-actions-were-really-disgusting/related/)

"Count 49ers safety Donte Whitner (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/3691/donte-whitner)
among the NFL players who aren’t buying the “everybody does it” defense for
Gregg Williams.


Whitner told Alex Marvez and Jim Miller on SiriusXM NFL Radio that he was
appalled to hear that Williams, the former Saints defensive coordinator,
encouraged his players to injure players on the 49ers prior to their January
meeting.</p>


“Those are my teammates,” Whitner said. “If those things are true, <a href="http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/Gregg-Williams-Donte-Whitner-New-Orleans-Saints-Bountygate-040512">I
think it’s really disgusting and something should be done about it</a> to a
higher extreme than what is [already done]. You’re out there intending to hurt
guys. This is their careers and how they take care of their families.”</p>


It was Whitner who ended up dishing out the hardest hit in that Saints-49ers
playoff game, knocking out Saints running back Pierre Thomas (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/4503/pierre-thomas)
with a legal helmet-to-helmet shot. Whitner said he believes in playing tough,
physical defense — as he did when he drilled Thomas — but plays within the
rules.</p>


“I didn’t go out intentionally to hurt him,” Whitner said. “Whenever I play
and somebody has the football, I want to hit them as hard as I possibly can
without injuring myself and intentionally injuring them. But I want to hit you
as hard as I can. It’s my job.”</p>


Williams went far outside the bounds of his job."</p>

I would be very surprised if Williams ever work in the NFL again. The fallout after the audio tape was released is pretty damning.
