Talking Trash Effects The Opposition

Teams and individual players can be inspired or re-energized by different things and who are we to judge what might give them extra motivation?

After the Cowboys beat the Giants last Sunday in the Meadowlands, multiple Dallas players commented about how the first thing in their mind was JPP’s “there’s going to be blood shed” and Terrell Thomas’ guaranteed victory.

On Tuesday, Packers offensive lineman Josh Sitton went on a Wisconsin radio station and said some un-flattering things about Green Bay’s opponent today, the Detroit Lions.

“They go after quarterbacks, their entire defense takes cheap shots all the time,” Sitton said on WSSP-AM. “That’s what they do, that’s who they are. They’re a bunch of dirtbags or scumbags. That’s just how they play. That’s how they’re coached.

“That starts with their frickin’ coach. That starts with their head coach, Schwartz. He’s a dick, too. I wouldn’t want to play for him. It starts with him and their D-coordinator and their D-line coach. They’re all just scumbags and so are the D-line.”

If the Lions beat the Packers, is it going to be because of these quotes. No one can prove that.

But, these words will be echoing in the craniums of the dangerous defensive linemen of Detroit –  Ndomakung Suh and Nick Fairley.

Don’t take my word for it. Ask the guys who get the trash talked against them. They’ll tell you.
