Former NFL star Warren Sapp has always been a person who isn't afraid to speak his mind. So when given the chance to write a book, fans should know what to expect.

The Tampa Bay Times reported that new Sapp's 314-page book, Sapp Attack, goes on the offensive and attacks several former coaches and teammates.

Here is what he had to say about former defensive corridnator Monte Kiffin: "I always believed Kiffin (blitzed) so much because he wanted the glory; it made him feel like a great defensive coordinator."

Sapp, who retired in 2007 and is now an analyst on the NFL Network, said that former coach "Tony Dungy put the damn cake in the oven, and then Jon Gruden came in and put the icing on it," when referring to the success of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs won the Super Bowl after the 2002 season, Gruden's first season with the team after Dungy was fired.

Former quarterback Trent Dilfer got his share of criticism as well.

"Dilfer … basically was an interception waiting to happen," Sapp wrote. "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."
