Whether you are a Warren Sapp fan or not, you can probably find something in his new book that entertains you. The book, “Sapp Attack,” came out on Tuesday and contains all sorts of accounts from Sapp’s career that coaches and players were probably hoping would never become public information. Take former Bucs coach Jon Gruden, for example.

According to Deadspin, one section of Sapp’s book talks about the motivational speech Gruden gave before the 2002 NFC Championship game between the Bucs and Eagles. He went over the things Tampa Bay needed to do to win the game, and closed it out with an absolute bang.

He stood up in front of us and explained that there were 10 things we needed to do to beat the Eagles. Ten Things! He went down the list one by one, blah blah blah, blah blah blah, we’d heard it all. But then he got to the number one thing we needed to do, and he started talking about their kick returner Brian Mitchell. “I want Brian Mitchell’s ass on a plate,” he said. “And once we finish with the Philadelphia Eagles we are going to go to San Diego for the Super Bowl…” he paused, grinned and concluded, “Where the coach is gonna get two hotel rooms for all my *******!”

The room erupted. Exploded. That was it, that was the greatest motivational speech ever. There isn’t even a second place. “The coach is gonna get two hotel rooms for all my *******!”

If Bill Belichick talking about having an erection wasn’t funny enough for you, perhaps Gruden’s speech is. And if your head coach talking about all the tail he’s going to get doesn’t make you want to win a Super Bowl, I don’t know what would.
