The Gregg Williams Experience: A Retrospective


Rather than repost the whole thing, I wrote about the Gregg Williams Era for The Classical and CSC was definitely my target audience for the piece. A preview:

With the departure of Williams to St. Louis, the violent, anarchic free-for-all that New Orleans was forced to call “a defense” will not be seen again anytime soon, at least unless the Rams visit the Superdome. This is fine, of course, if also a little sad. Usually, the sui generis label is applied to something unique and extraordinary. Pathbreaking and riveting. The Saints defense during the Williams years was none of these things, but it was also sui generis. How does a defense like this develop? The answer won’t be found by analyzing game tape; to understand the Gregg Williams Ineffective Mayhem Experiment, we must turn to evolutionary biology.


Anyway, if you read it, thanks for reading it. The full article is here.
