Oh no he didn’t! Over the past few years, one of the most popular insults in sports has been calling an opponent a “fake tough guy.” Thanks to Baltimore Ravens cornerback Cary Williams (No. 29 in above photo), the phrase was used once again after America’s biggest sporting event.
The Ravens were able to score points against the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII, which is something teams had very little success doing during the regular season. After the game, Williams called out the Niners for being phonies.
“The 49ers are pretenders,” he said, according to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun. “They’re fake tough guys. They’re a push you in the back type of team.”
There was a lot of chippiness and pushing and shoving throughout the game, but it was the Super Bowl. Rather than talking smack about his opponent and winning without class, Williams probably should have been counting his blessings that he wasn’t ejected after shoving a referee in the first half.
Personally, I’m not a fan of players rubbing salt in the wound after beating a team. The Ravens have done it before as well, with Terrell Suggs unloading on the New England Patriots after the AFC Championship Game. When you beat a team, there isn’t much you have to say. That’s the idea behind letting the play do the talking.
GOT AWAY WITH IT
Baltimore Ravens cornerback Cary Williams shoved a referee while the teams had a dust-up following Colin Kaepernick’s interception in the second quarter of the Super Bowl. Williams was lucky he avoided an ejection considering making contact with a referee calls for a player to be thrown out of a game immediately. The interception was the first ever thrown by a San Francisco 49ers...
Baltimore Ravens cornerback Cary Williams may be a decent corner in the NFL, but his statements after Super Bowl XLVII were classless.
After the game Williams stated “To me, I feel like the 49ers are pretenders,” Williams said to The Baltimore Sun and would go on to say quote “They’re fake tough guys. You got to play football. We do it physical and we do it between the whistles...
The first half of the Super Bowl has been a heated affair, and that tension nearly boiled over into an all-out brawl late in the second quarter.
Following an interception by Ravens safety Ed Reed, players from both teams remained engaged after the whistle. In the ensuing scrum, Baltimore cornerback Cary Williams had his helmet ripped off by San Francisco’s Bruce Miller and, rather...
There was a scrum between the Ravens and 49ers after Ed Reed made a huge interception in the second quarter. Cary Williams, in an attempt to get at a 49ers player, shoved a referee and for some strange reason was not ejected. Williams made some big players in the game, and deflected a few passes that would have been huge completions.This to me is pretty much inexcusable. I...
Baltimore Ravens cornerback Cary Williams almost exited the Super Bowl a little early after he shoved a referee who was trying to break up a shoving match between several 49ers and Ravens players.
Williams who obviously was agitated by something that happened during the game, was still agitated after the game and had some harsh words for his opposition from San Francisco.
After Sunday night’s Super Bowl win, Baltimore Ravens cornerback Cary Williams told Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun that the 49ers are “pretenders.” “The 49ers are pretenders. They’re fake tough guys. They’re a push you in the back type of team,” said Williams. This is great. Can’t wait to hear what the 49ers have to say. Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI...
Cary Williams may be the luckiest player thus far in the Super Bowl. After an Colin Kaepernick interception (which was the first by a 49ers QB in the Super Bowl) a fight broke out at the end of the play. From the .gif image we can clearly see Williams push the ref as he was [...]

A power outage that lasted 34 minutes paused the play in the Super Bowl.
On the second full possession after power came back on, the San Francisco 49ers finally got on the board. Colin Kaepernick hit Michael Crabtree, who bounced off of Cary Williams and Bernard Pollard, for a touchdown.
The Ravens lead 28-13 with a little more than seven minutes to go in the third quarter.
As unexcited as I was about the teams participating in this year’s Super Bowl, congratulations are still in order to the winner. So here is a tip of the hat to the Baltimore Ravens, along with as many nice things as I can muster. (Sorry it isn’t a longer list.)
A sincere, heart-felt congratulations to Bobbie Williams on collecting a ring. He was nothing but class in his 8 years...
