Carolina Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams made it clear after Sunday’s win over the Redskins that he wasn’t very happy about being the Redskins’ “homecoming” opponent.
“I have to say this, because it’s been bothering me all day, and it’s probably going to bother me for some time,” said WIliams, per The Washington Post. “I got up this morning, I was feeling pretty good. Got my breakfast, got something to drink, got on the bus. Business as usual.
“I get over and I pick over the game day [program], and I’m looking at the [program], it’s customary,” Williams continued. “And I look on there and it says homecoming. And I’m thinking to myself, like, this is the National Football League. Are you serious? Homecoming? Homecoming.
“And it’s not like you tried to hide it. You blatantly put it on the front of the game day. And you’re talking about somebody fired up today? I was pissed.”
Williams does realize that his team is one of the worst in the league with only two wins this season. And the Redskins had to choose one team to play their “homecoming” against.
I do agree that “homecoming” in the NFL is weird, but the Redskins also have a marching band. Enough said.
