    Mario Williams is "Fools Gold"

    Here's a thread I started on a different site... I was bombed with hate over it.

    In terms of production over the past four years, Mario has been what I would categorize as a player with diminishing returns.


    Tackles
    2007 - 59
    2008 - 53
    2009 - 43
    2010 - 28
    2011 - 11


    Sacks
    2007 - 14
    2008 - 12
    2009 - 9
    2010 - 8.5
    2011 - 5


    That doesn't strike me as the kind of guy who takes what he learned from the previous year, and then puts that to work for him and his team the next. Not to mention... he's coming off a shortened season where he had a torn PECTORAL muscle surgically repaired. So for all you waving the pom-poms at the 'sign Super-Mario' bus, let me ask you this...


    WHY?
    Im still wondering why... 1 tackle for a million dollars...

    can I get a woot woot?!

    Stupid thread. He got the 5 in one game, the decrees started when they switched to 3-4, and no one on D did **** today.
    Please excuse my dumb and pointless topics and posts, i more than likely will not be sober for any of them

    I have a feeling he's the type of guy who has 3 or 4 dominant games during the season then is invisible in the rest

    Re: Mario Williams is "Fools Gold"

    JoeMama's response is the still the best answer. We needed a pass rush. He was the best available. The Bills have to overpay to get anyone because they've been the worst team in the NFL for almost 15 years.

    The NFL is a passing league so good pass rushers are hard to come by.

    I was more excited that they were willing to spend that much money, it signalled that they are at least trying. They're still inept, but at least they're trying.

    That money had to go somewhere and we did need a pass rusher.

    Everyone in FA always gets overpaid.

    Could have spread the money around a little better I guess but at least Ralph just didn't keep it in his bank account.

    I was just happy Ralph finally found his wallet.

    In the end, I guess it was nothing more than PR.

    He's coming off a pretty serious injury. And there were a lot of three step drops today. The Jets took the pass rush out of the game and we couldn't cover for ****.

    Spending $100 million for this guy was a total waste of money.

    Who else would we have spent it on though? Plus he is an upgrade over like Dwan Edwards.

    I thought Ralph wasn't trying, wasn't going to spend any money and the Bills would be bad until he died. Turns out they were still trying. So now, we can at least hope to get lucky. That's a big improvement. That's why I was excited.

    I still think it was a good signing. We need more good players and we have a ton of cap space. We need a few more big signings like that.

    If we aren't going to have a 2-14 season, we need to add more talent to the roster through free agency.

    he wasnt trying...

    it was a desperate and stupid move to bring in a big name.

    Ralph needs the sellouts of home games in order to remain profitable. The fans were getting close to rebelling again... so he chucks up the coin on the biggest name out there... regardless of whether or not it was a smart football decision!

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