Mike Williams discusses Campbell's lips
Since every Jason Campbell post in these parts lately has been of the "Good!, No, Bad! No, Medium!" variety, let's change things by writing yet again about his lips.
Yes, you remember how teammates have had fun discussing Campbell's lips for lo so many years, right? Now two of the newest, and largest Redskins have jumped in on the act. This all comes from a Comcast SportsNet outtake that really should be seen in its entirety. But because I'm not allowed to use video from Redskins Park, I'll have to provide a transcript.
The back story: During Campbell's weekly appearance before the Eagles game, Mike Williams walked into the camera shot and lifted Campbell like he was picking up a small crumb of cheese curd. Cue next week's interview, when Williams again entered the frame. After some initial jostling, Campbell said they were supposed to have a truce, in which they had agreed to stop talking bad about each other. Dialog:
MW: Which I have, which I have, stopped talking about you.
JC: No, the other day, in the locker room before the game, Albert Haynesworth said something, and then Mike [directed] it towards me.
MW: I'm gonna put it on camera. Albert Haynesworth said what animal has big lips. Okay?
JC: You hear this, right, you hear this? [Haynesworth] wasn't even talking to [Williams] though, he just saying this. I'm sitting right there.
MW: Yes, he was. He was putting it out there like I'm putting it out here. What animal has big lips? You know, not really directed at Jason or anything, he was just inquiring about it, you know. And I said Orangutan. And the man fired off on me. I wasn't even talking about him. I answered the question.
JC: He's sitting right beside me. He didn't even have to answer the question. It wasn't even directed towards him
MW: I'm the kind of guy that, if there's a guy like, 'What's the best steakhouse around here,' you know, I'm a give it to you.
JC: What's the best steakhouse around here?
MW: The one I found right now is...don't get me off subject. I can answer a whole bunch of stuff. I felt like I needed to answer, because he really didn't know that an Orangutans had big lips. And all of the sudden I'm talking about Jason? Quite honestly, I don't think Jason's [got] big lips.
So then there was some more jabbering, and Kelli Johnson attempted to make peace, and then suddenly Campbell busted out with a football question.
JC: Hey Mike, do you feel like we can win our next five games?
MW: Yes, I do. Why? Because I know the heart of every man in here, and we fight hard. Unfortunately I was standing on the sideline [against the Eagles], but this man right here, when you made that play...
JC: Hey Mike, you did a good job blocking that sun from the east side. No, I'm talking about when we was going into the sun, you did a good job of sliding over there and keeping that sun directed so the receivers could see the ball. I just said something nice.
MW: Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, that was a shot. But what I was about to say, I saw the play. You had pressure, you spun out, had guys down the field, delivered to Devin Thomas down the sideline. And on the sideline, I said 'That boy's playing. That boy is playing. He got his lips ahead of him, and he's playing.' "
