He's told the story multiple times now. It's being egged on over and over again, because it's popular to hate on Ryan Grigson, so he's playing to the crowd and they're eating it up. I'm definitely over it already.
If what Pat is saying is true, I don't blame him one bit for disliking Grigson and wanting everyone to know why. To hear him tell it, Grigson treated other people poorly as well, but he hasn't gone into detail about any of that. But it's definitely played out, IMO.
Played out? Yes. But it's good to hear the players side of it so that we as fans know the true story. And judging from the Twitter reactions from other players the day he got fired, this isn't hard to believe. However, I think only the fans are in mind when he makes statements like this. It's not like this is a new thing. A bunch of guys "open " up about other players, coaches, etc... after they leave a team or the game itself.
We've heard how some of Gruden's players feel about him. We heard from Vikings players how they felt about Leslie Frazier. We've heard how Bucs players felt about Greg Schiano. So I don't really think Pat is egging this on because it's popular to hate on Grigson. I think he's egging this one because he knows fans hated Grigson, but he did too. But now like many other former players, he's a liberty to explain WHY. If anything this helps rationalize the disdain for Grigson instead of it looking like just an angry fanbase who unfairly hated a guy because he didn't deliver. This kind of information (if true) puts to bed the idea that Grigson wasn't as bad as WE as fans made it seem. If anything it shows that it was far worse than we thought. I think he's trying to educate fans and put us in the loop which I can respect. Wayne did the same thing, although not as much.
