Wow, you're a douchebag

From an AP story following the 49ers 19-13 victory over the Lions this afternoon.

The Lions (2-7) had a chance to win consecutive games for the first time in nearly 26 months and the third time since 2001, when Matt Millen took control of the franchise. Despite the lack of success, some players were bold enough to talk about winning four in a row after beating Atlanta by 16 points last week.

"Yes, it is a setback," said wide receiver Roy Williams, who has confidently talked about putting together an extended winning streak. "I think we came out a little flat. I don't think we were into this ballgame.

"I don't know if it's because it was San Francisco, and not an Atlanta Falcons team."

Oh god you're dumb for so many reasons, not the least of which is that you totally just made it clear that you are a poor sport and a bad loser. If I'm your coach, you're getting a talking to about what a jackass moron you are. You play football to win, regardless of the opponent. Even if winning doesn't hold enough merit on its own, you get paid big bucks by the Detroit Lions to make sure you don't come out flat, no matter who the opponent might be.
