Eric Winston knows what he saw and heard, and he’s not backing down. Winston came to the defense of Matt Cassell when after suffering a concussion; the crowd seemed to cheer his injury. In an eloquent post game speech to the media, Winston gracefully gave his insight and disgust for the Kansas City fans. We love when he said, “Were football players not gladiators.” It seems Kansas City fan see it differently. Afterwards fans seem to make a lot of excuses, “It was after a first down.” Here’s a good one, “They were cheering about Brady Quinn.” Well, if you’re cheering for Quinn then it’s a forgone conclusion about Cassell. Have you seen Quinn play? Winston spoke about the backlash on KILT in Houston with Josh Innes and Rich Lord. “That’s the way it goes. I’ve said my peace. I told everybody yesterday that I was done talking about it, and I am. I’ve said what I felt like I needed to say and what needed to be said and that’s really it. I understand everyone’s not going to agree with me. I had to learn that the tough way a long time ago playing sports, that not everyone’s going to like it, not everyone’s going to agree with you, not everyone’s going to be a fan of your’s. That’s just the way it goes. … It’s time to move on.” “I stand by what I said. I was there; I was on the field. It was obvious to me, but like I said, people are going to make their own conclusions. I’ve had a lot of support. I’ve had a lot of people that have emailed me from around the league. I had a person, today, stop me in my car when I was leaving the store and they just wanted to say, ‘Thank you.’ … I’ve had a lot of people that were there, teammates that their families were talking about it after the game. It wasn’t just me. … The only thing that matters to me in this game is the respect of your teammates and the respect of your peers.”
