    Ah now I see the angle your playing. You're playing off the reports of Mario saying he didnt know the lingo, etc. Sorry a lack of specific detail of what ligament was repaired does not mean it never occurred.
    COMING SOON...

    Curious the Bills got fined $20,000 for not reporting an injury you have all the faith that he indeed has.

    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.

    Is that a "no"?

    ive played hockey with two Cup champions... won the NYS Championships one year and finished 3rd in the nation.

    also was in the Empire state games for crew.

    the only time an injury affected my performance during competition was a hip pointer.

    i could only strive to be that kind of bum.

    Bottomline... im not a liar and never have been.

    still doesn't change the fact the Mario is on pace for 40 tackles and 8 sacks... As long as he gets to play against another ****ty OT or two.

    Re: Mario Williams is "Fools Gold"

    Mario had a solid game. Not flashy but he had a big impact in the run game and pushed the pocket in the pass game. Moore is still our best pure pass rusher but Mario is starting to be a major factor for us.

    Re: Mario Williams is "Fools Gold"

    Mario wasn't the key last night.

    Kyle Williams and Dareus put on a show.

    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.

    I see a soft football player that can be so much more than what he is.

    like I've been saying all along...

    Oh for the love of Christ you're either being intentionally obtuse or just don't understand football in the least bit, which I know you do. This act is ridiculous.

    Re: Mario Williams is "Fools Gold"

    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.

    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.
