Oh no he didn’t! Over the past few years, one of the most popular insults in sports has been calling your opponent a “fake tough guy.” Thanks to Baltimore Ravens cornerback Cary Williams, 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. When you beat a team, there isn’t much you have to say. That’s the idea behind letting the play do the talking. The post Cary Williams: 49ers are fake tough guys appeared first on Larry Brown Sports.
