The Tennessee Titans defeated Jacksonville in the 1999 AFC Championship game and Renaldo Wynn says it had a little to do with Gregg Williams having the Jaguars playbook.
“You know why we fell short in that AFC Championship game?” Wynn told Mike Meltser and Seth Payne of SportsRadio 610 in Houston on Friday, via Pro Football Talk. “After that I ended up getting coached by Gregg Williams. . . . First thing he said when he came in the door was, ‘Hey, you know why you lost?’ With a lot of other explicit words with that. He said he had our playbook. Greg Williams had our playbook. Our game-plan on offense. [He] had our playbook.”
“I know how he got them,” Wynn said, presumably regarding his mutual stint with Williams in Washington. “He started getting playbooks when I was with him.”
There is always some story like this that tries to grab headlines. Last year it was Tim Brown saying that Oakland Raiders coach Bill Callahan threw the Super Bowl because he hated working for Al Davis.
Williams was hired to be the defensive coordinator of the St. Louis Rams. It’s safe to assume if he will get a chance to coach the team considering his previous connection to the bounty gate scandal.
