Greg Williams Not Tolerating "Loafers"

Titans_Greg_Williams_2013The Tennessee Titans already had a defensive coordinator when they hired Gregg Williams.

But theyre hoping he adds the same kind of aggressiveness to the defense as in his previous stops. Williams has tried to keep a low profile since joining the Titans, but said Wednesday his priority is keeping his players properly motivated.

The thing I wont ever compromise on, or otherwise Ill retire, is effort and toughness. So there is no excuse for a loaf in this league, Williams said, via Jim Wyatt of the Tennesseean. That is what this game is about, and players dont want to play with someone who doesnt get that, and coaches dont want to coach them. That is one of the things that bothers me, if a guy is not 100 percent all the time when he plays this game, and a lack of toughness.
