Warren Sapp disses Trent Dilfer in new book; Dilfer takes high road
Warren Sapp has never been shy about sharing his opinion, regardless of whose feelings he may be hurting. He has a new book called “Sapp Attack” coming out, and it seems like it won’t spare anyone.
Excerts from the book were published by the Tampa Bay Times and it looks like Sapp takes shots at Lane Kiffin, the Bucs organization, and Keyshawn Johnson. The harshest criticism seemed reserved for Trent Dilfer.
“Dilfer … basically was an interception waiting to happen. There were times we practically pleaded with him, ‘We know you’re not going to score a touchdown, but please, just don’t turn it over.'”
Dilfer, who has put together arguably a better career as a broadcaster than professional quarterback, responded in a mature way.
Just heard @warrensapp rips me in his book. I have no hard feelings, he was a gr8 player and gr8 teammate. I wish I would have played better

Hey, at least Dilfer has won as many Super Bowl rings as Sapp.
Warren also takes aim at Keyshawn Johnson in the book.
“Among the biggest problems we had on that 2003 team was Keyshawn Johnson,” Sapp says in the book. “It wasn’t a big secret Keyshawn didn’t fit into our locker room: he came to us from a different football culture, and he never could make the adjustment. Everything was about him.”
His words shouldn’t be a surprise; If you’ve been following things, Sapp’s previous criticism of Keyshawn involved much stronger language.
The book looks like it will be a good read with plenty of stories. Sapp had to make it that way — he needs it to make the best seller list so he can fix his financial problems.
