Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians complained about the officials from this past Sunday’s loss to the Eagles and cornerback Cary Williams has a message for him.
“Let’s not be crybabies, man,” Williams said via PhillyMag.com. “I thought the refs kept them in the game to some degree at times. But it’s football, man. It’s about going out there and executing. If they came in here with a different attitude, maybe not so nonchalant, thinking it was going to be a cakewalk . . . I’m not big on teams sending stuff in, and ‘This is what needs to be called.’ Play the game, dude. It’s football, man. Either you come in and win or you blame it on the refs. Don’t blame it on the refs, blame it on your preparation that week. I’ve never been a fan of coaches sending stuff into the refs unless it was blatant. To me I didn’t think there was anything blatant out on the field.”
Williams said it comes down to the Cardinals needing to play better to beat them.
“We’re all grown men. You lost, man. It’s a game that you felt like you should have won. Well, you should have come out and played a little better, you should have coached a little better, whatever was going on. I heard a lot of stuff about Bruce Arians talking,” Williams said.
