"Players are held accountable for their actions on the field. There were no illegal hits to the head or neck area against Kyle Williams on Sunday,'' Aiello said. "There was no conduct by the Giants of any kind that would suggest an effort to injure Kyle Williams in any way.''

So Aiello says the Giants didn't try to hurt Williams, while the Giants boasted they did. Who to believe?
