    While I don't totally agree with Coastal's post, I think your logic here is flawed. Just because it isn't his money, doesn't mean that he can't disagree with the decision to sign Williams. When you pay someone what he got paid, you expect them to be a special player.

    you dont see the Ravens, Steelers or niners making such rash moves.

    from what Ive see out here... you are baout the ****tiest poster of the lot.

    Here's the tally today.

    $1 million = 1 tackle

    awesomeness.
    When your team wins, you re-sign your players, you pay them more (because they're worth it) and you don't have the budget to bring in the big names. The 49ers dropped stupid money on Jonas Jennings and Nate Clements, even Takeo's contract was questionable.

    I agree with you on the Ravens and Steelers.

    But I think you misunderstand me. The Bills are inept, we agree. But this offseason was more than just signing a big name. We re-signed our good players, even the ones that were talking about leaving. And then we we signed two passrushers, one for stupid money and one for a pretty good value. That points to Ralph giving the money required to win. We're still inept so I don't expect to win, but if we get lucky anything is possible, like if we drafted Wilson in the 3rd round.

    Anderson was a good signing.

    Mario was foolish use of company resources and will hurt this franchise short and longterm.

    Its not one game. Its not like the Bills are the Pats and had one bad game. This team has been the worst team in the NFL over the past decade.

    Re: Mario Williams is "Fools Gold"

    I feel like you're jumping the gun a bit. I also have a different perspective, as I've followed Williams' career closely. For the better part of his career, he was the only player the opposition had to scheme for on the Texans defense. After his first year, there was no hiding him. My hope was that he would come to Buffalo, and for the first time in his career, be surrounded by some legitimate talent (Dareus, Williams, etc...). I think it's important to remember that for the past two years, he's dealt with injuries that wound up putting him on the I.R. (hernia in 2010, and and pectoral in 2011); didn't do his statistics any favors. Since you're talking strictly statistics, through five weeks last year, he was on pace for the best year of his career (as far as sacks are concerned). Whatever the argument, I think it's fair to say that it's far too early to put a title to any of the off-season additions, or any player for that matter.

    That entirely depends. To win in a salary cap, you need to get better performance for the dollar than your competition. The Bills spend NOTHING on offense. We have a cheap QB, a cheap #1 WR, no one earning #2 or #3 WR money, Chandler is probably close to fair value or a slight bargain at TE. The line is cheap, and our RB's are fair value.

    That means we can overspend on defence.

    The strategy has always been to use Chan's scheme's to generate points with cheap players and spend the savings on defence. The problem is Chan's scheme's aren't working and the defence living up to it's price tag. This strategy might hurt the team if we get a real QB that signs a short rookie contract. Otherwise, it's not that bad. By the time we'll be paying our next QB his second contract, Mario's deal will look cheap.

    Re: Mario Williams is "Fools Gold"

    Saw an interview with Mario after the game. He said he was punched in the face over 20 times by Howard. Uppercuts to the chin. He said something to refs, they did nothing. He said "I don't know if that's allowed in the new CBA, but I don't think so".... Other than he was pretty pissed at his and the defense overall performance.
    I'm sure he will be fined for his comments about the "lack" of officiating

    Yeah, and of course our staff was completely surprised that the Jets would actually attempt to gameplan around neutralizing the effectiveness of our front four.

    Gee, who would've thunk it?

    Re: Mario Williams is "Fools Gold"

    I will wait one more week before I decide how this signing worked out.

    It Mario has three sacks next week, do we average out the two, or do we just completely over-react and say it was the best signing ever?

    I doubt they were surprised. But Wannstache doesn't blitz, our LBs can't cover and our secondary sucked. So, what was he supposed to do? Play press coverage? Hmm, you know...
