well he is up to 14 tackles! He is projected to have 37!

He is suppose to average 2.31 tackles per game to stay in par and he is at 2.8 tackles per game ... and he has 3.5 sacks ( 2 from yesterday ) would have LOVED if it would have been Brady but it appears he is earning his money..

I personally would like to see more .. maybe because coming off those 2 nasty losses where the defense allowed an insane amount of points ...

thought now on how Mario's is playing ..

:popcorn:

I think its too early to say Mario is earning his money. The Cards have probably the worst set of OTs in football and probably for the last 10 years.

Mario needs to show up against Tennessee's OTs who are pretty solid.

How do you earn $100 in a few years, unless you're re-writing record books?

Its all relative. He got that money because he was FA, not because he is worth 100 mil. What we need from him is to produce at an all pro level and produce against the top offenses.

I thought he was robbed of a sack yesterday - when Kolb threw the ball out on his way down. I thought it should have been ruled a sack...

I saw that! LOL .. however I didn't think he got robbed! :D

Yeah, plus that one where he had Kolb by the jersey and Kolb was able to run away from him toward the sideline. I wonder if his wrist injury played a role on that play. Either way, he had a good game.

Well that one I think he let go on purpose b'cse had he pulled him down, it would have been ruled a horse collar and been a huge penalty.

If he was taking up 2 to 3 blockers and allowing others to make plays yes. If he was getting constant pressure to force bad throws and INTs yes. Since neither of those are happening the answer is a resounding no! We could get that kind of production out of a lot of players.

I had a modified Bankart lesion repaired by Dr. Bernhard Rohrbacher when I was 19 after playing hockey for 2 years with recurrent subluxations and dislocations of my shoulder.

when my shoulder came out I'd go back to the bench and let my shoulder go back in.

then went out for my next shift.

it wasn't until I got to college that they made me get surgery to repair it before I could get back on the ice.

Also, considering Mario went against another rookie OT whose biggest weakness is strength at the point, his performance was entirely unimpressive.

The bulk of Mario's production has been against two rookie OTs and a 2nd year 7th round pick.

Okay, so last night, Mario Williams tied last season's total sack leader (Dareus with 5.5). With six games to go. With cap space and money to spend, why worry about the amount of money the Bills are paying him? He is currently leading the team, followed closely by Kyle Williams, who is .5 a sack away from his career high, with six game to go. You don't think Mario's presence has anything to do with Kyle's career year? What about Moore's sudden emergence as a pass rushing threat? He's got 2 sacks in 6 games – that's 2 more than he had in all 19 of his previous games combined.

In Mario's last full season, he got 8.5 sacks. You don't think Nix understood what he was getting? Fool's gold implies that the team thought they were getting something better than he is. I maintain they knew exactly what they were getting. They totally overpaid – but as has been stated repeatedly, Nix is working against the decade of losing, he's working against the negative perception of the Bills and Buffalo as a city, and he's working against a perception that Ralph is cheap. Overpaying is what you do to set a new standard.


Up to this point, Mario still isn't any better than Shobel.

Well duh, Schobel was really good for a long time. At this point in his career Schobel (2005-06, when he was 28-29, Mario is 27) had 12 and 14 sack seasons. If he was a free agent after his seventh year, Schobel would have gotten a huge payday too.

Mario is a good DE. He's having an average season, but he's still got more sacks than everyone else on the team. So who cares how much they paid him? I know, I know, they could have gotten a DE with 6 sacks and a better LB or CB with the same money – okay who?

33 year old Andre Carter with his 4 games played and 1 sack?
Rookie Jared Crick with 0 sacks
No free agent DE signed this past year has more sacks than Mario. Wimbley with the Titans is next closest with 3.5

So if they signed some scrub who would have maybe 2 sacks this year, you'd be complaining that it was a typical One Bills Drive move and they should have gone after somebody like Williams who would be leading the team in sacks right now.

He played well last night, and it showed what the defense can look like when he decides to play.

The problem is this business of showing up every 3rd or 4th game, with a litany of excuses.

I watched the NE game again when it was on replay and watched him.

I would have benched him at one point or another, he just looked disinterested, and they were doing everything they could have to get him involved. They had him on the left, they moved him to the right, they moved him inside, they stood him up...and he did nothing. Had he played like that last night, he would have been sitting for a few games.

He played well last night, and it showed what the defense can look like when he decides to play.

The problem is this business of showing up every 3rd or 4th game, with a litany of excuses.

I watched the NE game again when it was on replay and watched him.

I would have benched him at one point or another, he just looked disinterested, and they were doing everything they could have to get him involved. They had him on the left, they moved him to the right, they moved him inside, they stood him up...and he did nothing. Had he played like that last night, he would have been sitting for a few games.

I don't know what was done to get him to play for this game, but it needs to continue. I know, I know, he/they should be self motivating...but if they aren't, you have to go to plan B, whatever that is/was.

These are not HS players, the idea that benching is going to work as a motivational tool is a bit ridiculous. Ive never been an advocate of trying to humiliate a player in order to get his attention. The Phins did that last week and got laughed at for it. These are adults with traditionally massive egos, if you think treating them like children is going to work you're going to see an adverse reaction both on and off the field.

-I would have benched him because he's an ineffective player on the worst defense in the league;
-If I'm worried about upsetting someone who is under performing on the worst defense in the league, I'll risk the insurrection;
-two of his teammates, Kelsay and Kyle Williams called out several members of the D for playing undisciplined and without effort. I can almost guarantee he was on the unnamed list;
-Ask Bill Parcells about whether he worries about hurting someone's feelings. You'll probably get a quote in return that'll make a Coors Light commercial in the future.

You going to be bench the rest of them too?

But they didn't name players, did they? There is a very large difference between what you suggest doing singling out a player and Williams and Kelsay calling out unnamed players. Whether that was intended for him or not, which I agree his name was probably on.

Ill be happy to, my first question will be what the hell happened with the Jets, Dolphins, and Cowboys. This isn't the mid 1990's anymore, his style is not the norm nor do players react well to it.

Well duh, Schobel was really good for a long time. At this point in his career Schobel (2005-06, when he was 28-29, Mario is 27) had 12 and 14 sack seasons. If he was a free agent after his seventh year, Schobel would have gotten a huge payday too.

Mario is a good DE. He's having an average season, but he's still got more sacks than everyone else on the team. So who cares how much they paid him? I know, I know, they could have gotten a DE with 6 sacks and a better LB or CB with the same money okay who?

33 year old Andre Carter with his 4 games played and 1 sack?
Rookie Jared Crick with 0 sacks
No free agent DE signed this past year has more sacks than Mario. Wimbley with the Titans is next closest with 3.5

So if they signed some scrub who would have maybe 2 sacks this year, you'd be complaining that it was a typical One Bills Drive move and they should have gone after somebody like Williams who would be leading the team in sacks right now.

you're paying a guy $100M. He is expected to at least be better than Shobel. Excuse me if I'm expecting that. After all the FO and players themselves built all this hype about Mario. Just voicing out my disappointment so far.


Let me remind you I stated "up to this point" . That doesn't mean he won't get there.

Of course it doesn't. Only coach in NFL history to take 4 different teams to teh playoffs.

Tom Coughlin should have been fired years ago.

If not for those 2 SB wins in the last 5 years, he probably would have been. Hell, there was talk about firing him last year. The old "he's out of touch with today's players" routine came up again as late as last November.

It isn't even necessarily about being a hard ass. Some try, and look stupid doing it. Gregg Williams when he started with the Bills, for instance. Todd Haley comes off as annoying. Everyone has their own way. I myself, responded better to letting me know what I was doing wrong, rather than screaming at me about it. But that was mostly because the screamers I had didn't know what they were doing.

Unless it was an effort thing, then the screaming was warranted. But that's just me.

But it is about getting your players to perform, your unit to perform, especially when they are performing well below their talent level. If that means changes must be made, so be it.

I hate to tell you this, but for a DE, it is about as easy as a scheme as you can get, especially one with the skill set he has.

-Line up on the outside
-get in backfield
-pressure QB
-watch contain, protect against cutback.
-beat guy in front of you, the guy you have the edge on.

That's it.

That is what he was brought in to do. That's why he is getting $100 million.

He isn't being lined up head on an OT, asked to take on multiple blockers, asked to hold ground, etc., etc.

But the "athletic freak" hasn't been getting around much slower RT's. At times, it could be the wrist thing...maybe, but I'm still waiting for him to beat a tackle cleanly once in a while, i.e., out quick him. But it is because he hasn't been doing his job that they've been moving him around lately. And even that didn't work.

But his wrist didn't miraculously heal between the Pats game and the Miami game.

He was playing better because he was actually getting off the ball, he was actually running, instead of jogging. In other words, he was actually hustling, instead of phoning it in.

But I'm sorry, all this talk is hurting his feelings.

Gooooood question, Aguado.

Who knows who they could've signed, but the fact that there's going to be a salary cap floor soon (next year) that's way higher than it used to be probably meant that we had to spend the money on someone. Mario was probably the best option for selling tickets.

Yeah, well, his competition the last 3 weeks has been

Jonathan Martin- a rookie whose draft stock fell when people started watching him;
Winston Justice - the bust from Philly;
Some 2nd year UFDA from Jax;

I'll be impressed when he puts pressure on Brady. (14 scores, including 10 TD's in their last 19 drives against us, damn...).

It isn't even about the $100 million contract with me...its the "oh look at him, he's an athletic freak!!" routine.

The 6'6" 300 lb freak with the agility of a LB, yada, yada, yada.

But apparently his Justice League, Superpower Ring only has enough athletic freak powers for 3 plays a game.


He could be so much more if he wanted to.

Anyways, here's what Talley had to say about him yesterday:

Talley on the Bills' defensive line:

"I thought they would be carried by their front, and they have not been. They paid a whole lot of money for two guys to rush the passer. The guys on the inside, they're holding their own. They're doing everything they can do.

"I asked Bruce [Smith] early in the season. I've said, 'Dude, what do you think me and you would be doing right about now if we were in this boat?' He said, 'We'd be fighting.' "

Asked to elaborate, Talley explained he was unsatisfied with how Mario Williams handled his wrist injury:

"I don't think he's lived up to the hype. Don't tell me about being hurt and playing. I hope his wrist doesn't hurt like mine when he's done. But I just don't get it, man. At the end of the day, you're graded on what you do. If you're good enough to put a uniform on and step on the field, then you're fit to play. So you need to play at your level, whatever that may be.

"I had three surgeries in one offseason and one six days before the season started and still made the Pro Bowl. I played every year through injuries and had surgeries after the offseason.

"There ain't no such thing as being injured. You can be hurt; we all hurt. But you're not injured. We all got to play through it, and your performance can't slack off. I really don't think they hold each other accountable because, at the end of the day, they all go home to their nice, cushy house. What about what you're supposed to be doing on Sunday and Thursday and Monday? What do you think about, and it is just a passing thought?"


On the other hand, he likes Kyle Moore's effort.

"He's played his ass off. I don't think anybody's expected him to play as well as he's played. He's played very, very well. Here's a tweener, a linebacker who's a lot like Cornelius [Bennett] and I were -- between a defensive end and a linebacker. He can rush the passer. He's had, in my opinion, one of the best seasons of anybody on that front."

You're right I was looking at stats by position and Mario ranked higher among DEs but yes the definition is blurred these days.

Wow. He beat Barry Richardson, or was it Wayne Hunter on a play that Carrington moved the QB from the pocket. Find a DE in the league that HASN'T beaten Barry Richardson at least once a game.

I'll start carving his Canton bust.

I think the interesting thing in all this is we are middle of the road in team sacks when last year we were at the bottom. The Vaunted San Francisco defense has one more sack. We get a decent D coordinator and a top LB in the draft and we could improve even more next year.

-424 points against and counting
-5.1 ypc against (2200 yards rushing given up and counting)
-0 sacks against a quality OT.


He brought nothing to the defense. But then, every defense he's ever been on has sucked.

I wonder why none of his supporters bumped this thread in the last 2 games? Ah, maybe cause he was invisible, except for the replays of Russell Wilson and Ryan Tannehill running by him on the way to the sidelines.

Well, we're stuck with him for a few more years. He might be willing to accept the the legacy of a highly overpaid underachiever, or...he can set out to improve himself and become an actual beast, as opposed to the paper tiger that he is.

He can spend it working on some hand tech, some actual pass rushing moves, instead of relying on one.

Maybe he can watch some tape of JJ Watt, whose hand moves are light years ahead of Mario's.

Most of all, he needs a Talley, like Bruce needed a Talley. Bruce would have probably been a Mario except for Talley0 mentoring him. He very well could have ended up as the 8-10 sack a year guy, who did little else. In Bruce's case, it was physical conditioning, and probably a few other things.

Or he can count his millions and talk about his victories over the Barry Richardson's of the world.

what kind of manager brings in an employee, makes him the highest paid member of the team, and then doesn't expect that person to lead?

There's no doubt he's not a leader or "high motor" type player, but this team has many more problems than someone with double a digit sack total.

Thats my point. Im happy they went out and spent the money to fix an area of need. Did they overpay?? Sure they did. Want to know why? Because they are the **** of the league as a franchise and noone wants to come here unless you show them the money. I see far bigger problems on that defense or even on the team than Mario and that includes the **** they have for coaches not only on defense but on the team.

One of the criticisms last year was lack of pass rush. We went out and signed the best pass rusher available. We improved in that area, but did anyone think he was the next Bruce Smith? I just pointed out that stat because the OP has been pimping San Francisco for the past two years and the lowly Bills have only one less sack. Have I been disappointed with the defense, sure. However they did go through a 5 game stretch where the most points allowed was 15. Crappy teams? OK.

Bottom line is you can't win in this league playing defense with a strong running game and a game manager. Of the top 15 defenses, it looks like only 6 will make the playoffs. 5 of the bottom 12 will. So, would it have been more prudent to have gone after Peyton Manning or a top FA QB (How about Matt Flynn). I can't think of any others that were on the market. Should they have drafted one? Undoubtably, but then again QB's taken in the first three rounds bust as much as they succeed. I'm sure the Bills' would have taken Cousins had Washington not pulled the trigger.

So, you can bash Mario all you want, the problem is not a defense that will continue to improve, it's a rinky dink offense that's easy to figure out and defend.

Continue to improve? You're making the assertion that the process has already begun?

Our defense sucks... plain and simple.

My take is "plug and play" solutions to deficit areas of the team without regard for the team IS the problem.

Mario is the crowning manifestation of that dynamic, and until that changes... the playoff drought will continue.

The next evolution of this will be our selection of a QB in the upcoming draft. Everyone is going to go ape and get in line at the alter of "saviors without a chance".

it won't be because the QB we actually select will be the problem... it's just that I have zero faith that whoever we do pick will be evaluated in the context of the greater whole.

Of the top 9 defenses, in terms of points allowed, only the Fins aren't going to the playoffs. (not sure of the Bears).
Of the bottom 9 defenses, in terms of points allowed, only NO is going (are they? not sure).

Against the Jets- With Mark Sanchez, the Jets scored on 5 of their 1st 6 possessions. Only one poss. was started in Buffalo territory;

Against the Pats- 14 of their last 19 possessions resulted in scores, including 11 TDS;

Against the 9er's- they gave up TD's in 6 of their last 7 possessions. Only 1 of those possessions started in Buffalo territory;

Against the Titans- the gave up TD's in 4 of their 1st 5 possessions. Only one started in Buffalo territory. With 3 minutes to go, all they had to do was prevent a TD. They couldn't do that;

Against Seattle- they gave up scores on 5 of their 1st 5 possessions, including 4 TDS. After a punt at the end of the half,
they gave up 3 more scores on consecutive drives. Against the Seahawks, there hadn't been an offensive turnover in the entire 1st half, yet they were down 31-17.

Of course defense is the problem.

If they were intending on winning shoot outs, they probably should have added more than 1 weapon and 1 OL to their arsenal.

But they didn't, because they wanted a dominant defense.

And what they got is about as far as can be from dominating.I will stop in next year and you can update me on how much the defense sucked. As far as "Arena League yet", you're wrong. I will add WWE. The NFL has become a joke.

**** like that is going to happen when you hire a guy that has been a DC exactly 1 season out of the previous 19 to run your defense, and in reality wasn't exactly stellar at it prior to that.

**** like that is going to happen when you have a GM that decides to change the defense before he even hires a coach.

Accept it...Mario was his TO move.

And the funny thing is...he could have left the D alone and it would have been better than today.

IF you believe what Moonie says, it's a QB league, driven by scoring.

So...if he had left the defense alone that was 15th in opponents scoring...

Our receiving corps would be...

SJ
Julio Jones or AJ Green
and dual TE's of Jimmy Graham and Gronk.

They'd be thrown to by Dalton/Kaepernick and/or Russell Wilson. they could alternate weeks or something.

People worried about who they were going to double on the D Line?

Who ya gonna double on O?? AJ Green? SJ? Gronk? Graham? Spiller?

But...he couldn't resist...he had to screw up the D.

um...you were looking at his jersey number, I think

After 8 seasons

Bruce- 108 games 92 sacks
Mario- 114 ganes 76.5 sacks

And in terms of tackles...it isn't even close...

Bruce 541
Mario 325

Bruce could, and did..dominate against the run as well as the pass.

That's not to mention that Mario probably had several hundred more pass attempts during that time and hence, more sack opportunities.

I won't even get into the fact that Bruce was predominantly lined up against the team's best lineman...guys like Richmond Webb, Bruce Armstrong, John Alt, and occasionally, an Anthony Munoz.

http://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/S/SmitBr00.htm
http://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/W/WillMa22.htm

Reminds me of all the "I'm not saying he's Tom Brady...but Trent Edwards did this..." threads that were so popular at one time.

Mario isn't Bruce..never was, never will be...physical talent is comparable (in different ways), but he doesn't have Bruce's mental make up. Bruce understood things like leverage, how to use his speed...how to throw a guy off balance and then take him out...spin moves, swim moves, etc. Mario gets by on physical ability alone for the most part.

If you want to make a comparison...take a guy like JJ Watt. A guy with the physical similarities of Mario...but with a far more detailed understanding of hand - to - hand combat.

Yeah, you watched him play this year through a glass half-darkly or whatever the ****.

He made 2nd team All-Pro this year, only behind the two other guys on the first team, I believe. That's more meaningful than the Pro Bowl.

Your credibility on the matter is shot, to be honest with you. I can remember when you actually were adamant about your opinion that the Bills pretended to go after Tyson Clabo to sucker the fans into buying tickets...a Right Tackle. Ask people what they think of him at the moment. Unreal. And you can never entertain the idea that you may have been wrong.

I really don't think you are any kind of expert on group dynamics, either.

You and SpikedLemonade...he went off on endless rants about how Ralph Wilson is a racist because he probably wouldn't allow Cam Newton to be picked at #3 that year. He doesn't want black quarterbacks, according to him. So, Cam Newton didn't even fall to the Bills...then we now have our #1 AND #2 quarterbacks who are both black and he STILL maintains that Ralph Wilson is a racist? Why? Because he's a pud.
