Mario “Sack” Williams


This game will definitely be one to remember as the new look Bills captured their first victory in the last few seconds but let’s not forget about the defense especially Mario Williams. Today he showed everyone why this Bills organization got him and proved he can still be a dominate player in this league.

Just from a few games I think everyone can tell this Bills defense has certainly improved. More pressure, different looks and also making those necessary adjustments (during the game) has this defense playing well. There is still room to improve but with the injuries they have had to deal with I think they have done a good job. Mike Pettine has done a great job so far getting these guys ready and I think it will only get better.

Williams today just had everything going his way. Being able to get that pressure and beating his guys had the Panthers O line constantly worrying about him. Today Mario just didn’t beat his own personal best of 3.5 sacks back in 2007 but also now has the Bills best single game sack record at 4.5.

Knowing about everything he has gone through over the past year I couldn’t be happier for the guy. The transition to Buffalo and the coaching staff last year just had to be a joke. The worst defense I’ve ever seen them play and was still able to record 10.5 sacks. That along with his wrist injury didn’t make it a good first season for fans as they always mocked the contract and that he wasn’t living up to it (no one worth $100 million sorry).

This year didn’t really start off all that well for Mario with the injury in training camp and everything that went on with the engagement ring. His personal life sure made its way out from this story and nothing had come good from it.

That aside I think Mario is ready for another good year but this time it will be seen differently.  Cleared from distractions and getting healthier I can only see him getting better.  How do you see it?  It’s only one game or is Mario ready to contribute more weekly?

    One week at a time, individually & as a team, getting better & better. Turning this Bills culture around. “Don’t confuse effort with results”
    Marone, Petine, Whaley et al have already made a huge impact and are just getting started on the foundation. While SuperMario will have his big games and his off games, this season will continue to mature & get results as a unit. I like what I’m seeing and am patiently hopeful for “Better Days.” Let’s GO Buff-a-lo!!! #BillsMafia #BeBuffalo

    This is a re-post from what I wrote in response to Dennis Amo’s article. I’m pasting it because what I wrote, I feel needs to be seen more than just on Dennis’s article comment section.

    I, for one was ecstatic when he signed with the Bills!! Money talks, Bullshit walks! Mr. Wilson, the owner and the guy who is called cheap so many times, when in fact he is NOT CHEAP and never was, signed him to a multi-million dollar contract, that people ignore, yet call him cheap was a great signing!! Sorry about the long sentence. Then Mario hurts his wrist! Hurts it bad enough that after going 6 games into the season, the pain being too much decides on surgery…..The frigging backlash he, the team and the fans, gave and got was ridiculous. The man had a legitimate injury! He has the surgery and finishes the season with 10.5 sacks!! If I remember right, those sacks came in 10 games!! Average that out people if you can do the math?? Off the top, I come up with 1.2 sacks a game!! Fast forward to the present day, he is the MAN worthy of the contract paid by our so-called CHEAP owner, Mr. Ralph Wilson!! If the idiots in Bills fandom can’t read and understand my statement, here is how I have and still feel about Mario Williams, HE IS A GREAT PLAYER, VERY WORTHY OF HIS CONTRACT AND GLAD TO HAVE HIM ON THE BUFFALO BILLS!! GO BILLS!!
