I hate to say this, but I'm glad to see it. It seemed to me the press thought very little of him for his entire tenure in Houston and the minute he goes to Buffalo it's HOLY CRAP Buffalo is a contender.

Mario does do this from time to time but usually while he's taking on two blockers so his mates can do their thing.

Kubiak is a coach down in Texas
You know he knows just exactly what the cap is
He ain't gonna listen to richard justice
He makes his livin' off of the people's Texans

Mario in blue, whoa, whoa, he slipped away
Vince Young caught up to him the very next day
They got the money, hey
You know they got away
They're not down south and they're still running today
Singin' go on take the money and run
Go on take the money and run

I was always skeptical of Mario's play. He'd show flashes of greatness, then fall a sleep for whole games.

Mario played his best football in the final year of his contract. Now that he's been paid, you won't see him again until the final year of this contract.

Good luck Bills, you're going to need it.

More important than his performance was the complaining about the officials. Really bad timing for that, imo.

Default Re: Super Mario not so super so far

I caught some of the game late & Mario seemed very sluggish & unmotivated. Buffalo was within 2 scores & had about 5-6 minutes left. I guess he just shut it down early. I'm very disappointed, because I always liked him & couldn't fault him for accepting a $100+ million contract. However, I'm a firm believer in earning the money you're paid.

Bills LE Mario Williams was held to a single tackle in his Buffalo debut.
Mario also got just one hit on Mark Sanchez, after Sanchez released the ball. Williams was "furious" after the game about the replacement refs' no-calls of alleged penalties by Jets RT Austin Howard. "Pass blocking doesn't include hands to the face," Williams said. "When someone tells the officials that, and they just walk away, or they don't call it, that is disheartening.

Default Re: Super Mario not so super so far

He's filthy rich now, he isn't going to try hard ever again.

I always thought there was something a bit off about Mario. Sure, he never caused problems in Houston. He was chill. But yet he never really stood out, never seemed to make others better.

When was he ever helping out those around him, getting them in position and making them hustle up and stuff??? Instead, he looked like a Lone Ranger to me. Lone wolf.

So, no surprise that he gets a huge payday and goes AWOL in the first game. Bills fans are not going to be happy. He'll have some injury, and the story will be that "maybe Mario was just hurt and he'll come back stronger when he's healed up." Yeah, sure he will....

Why cause it shows we made the right decision to let him move on and that we see the same thing as we've always seem. A dominant physique and skillset that plays about 50% of the time, aka no heart.

Default Re: Super Mario not so super so far

Peter King's assessment on MMQB:

Goat of the Week
Mario Williams, DE, Buffalo.
You can excuse a preseason of no production, because no one cares about the preseason. But no team had the kind of crisis the Jets had at right tackle in the preseason, dumping starter Wayne Hunter in favor of the untested Austin Howard, and on Sunday, Williams got nothing done playing across from Howard. This much of nothing: one tackle, zero sacks, zero quarterback hits. A pathetic opening display for a man who will make $40 million over the first two years ($1.18 million for his no-show Sunday) of a six-year, $96 million deal.

Ouch.

I feel the same way(bolded statement). The media coverage bothered me more than it should have, but I'm glad to see Buffalo fan is getting to see the other side of this double-edged sword.
