Buffalo Bills Circling The Wagons: Mario Williams

Here are you daily links from around the web for your Buffalo Bills.

Buffalo Bills: Five Reasons why “Ground n’ Pound” Gameplan is a Bluff

"Bills fans are growing nervous after listening to the overwhelming “run first and run often” rhetoric given by Head Coach Rex Ryan. With the addition of LeSean McCoy to a crowded background that consists of Fred Jackson, Anthony Dixon, Bryce Brown and rookie Karlos Williams, it is easy to become brain-washed by the ground and pound mentality that Offensive Coordinator Greg Roman is known for as well. To make matters worse, an uncertain quarterback situation that will be filled by a “decent” player at the most, doesn’t quite scream aerial assault either."

Mario Williams preparing for another adjustment

"Mario Williams understands the business of the NFL, that players change teams on a regular basis just as he did in 2012 when he left the Houston Texans in free agency to join the Buffalo Bills. He knows coaches change teams, too, such as when defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz exited the Bills last January after Rex Ryan became their new head coach. For Williams, this wasn’t exactly the happiest of developments. In Schwartz’s one season in charge of Buffalo’s defense, Williams thrived from his end position, registering a career-high 14.5 sacks on the way to his fourth Pro Bowl appearance."

Inside the NFL: PAT changes will set new strategies afoot

"Leave it to the NFL to turn what once was the most routine and perhaps boring play in the game into something that not only figures to generate some drama this fall but that also has become one of the hotter offseason topics. No longer does the extra-point attempt qualify as the cue for a bathroom break or beverage refill. It’s now a more challenging kick, from 32 to 33 yards as opposed to 19 to 20 yards, and if it’s blocked or the placement is mishandled and the ball becomes free, it could be returned for two points."

Saturday’s multi-sport local and college roundup: Bills‘ GM says Tyrod Taylor will get some first

"Tyrod Taylor will get some first-team repetitions during offseason practices with his new team, Buffalo, Bills general manager Doug Whaley confirmed on a story on rotoworld.com. Taylor, a former Hampton High and Virginia Tech standout quarterback who spent his first four pro seasons as Joe Flacco’s backup with the Baltimore Ravens, is 19-of-35 for 199 yards and has 27 carries for 136 yards in his NFL career."
