Looks like his cover story for part of his struggles is at least gaining league attention in a very unfavorable way.

If anyone watched countdown's "eye on the Sky" segment this morning they showed Mario getting man handled by....Gronk in N.E. ... ONE one ONE. If Mario is supposedly an elite pass rusher should never be able to be taken on by a TE.
Didn't they show him getting manhandled by a TE last week also?

From what I remember I know it showed Gronk (who isn't exactly known for his blocking prowess) taking Williams out of the play completely, twice.

All I know is this for any elite outside puss rusher you should never been able just put a TE on him and be ok....ever. You could never do that to Terrell Suggs, Peppers, Clay Matthews,Osi, etc etc.

Maybe as another poster pointed out about Whitner's time in Buffalo vs going to the Niners saying the staff is clueless is valid. I mean they do have some talent on the line or at least have sunk some high picks and money into it.

The best moment of Mario's time in Houston was on 4/28/2006 when this board nearly imploded when the news broke that the pick would not be VY or Reggie.

I just hope the Bills don't go into this offseason thinking they need to hire Wade Phillips as HC to come and fix their 100 million dollar man.

More than 1 very smart football person liked Mario as a free agent, but I think they all simply fall in love with size and potential.

Mario looks stiffer and slower than at any point in his career and his patented "run into blocker and stay engaged" is back

The Bills are going to rue the contract they gave Mario Williams. Watched 3 games on him and he looks worse than at any time w/ HOU

• Mario Williams said he doesn’t care what we think about his performance. Truthfully, there hasn’t been a performance to care about. Let’s call it now — this guy is soft, and the Bills have apparently whiffed to the tune of $100 million. He was invisible yet again. He said in the locker room he needs to get better. You know what, he was supposed to already be better when he got here. He was supposed to be one of the best in the league. He’s not, and the team he left, Houston, is now 6-1 without him.

This is where we mention that defensive end Mario Williams, Nix’s $100-million investment that’s looking like Facebook stock, was nowhere to be found in terms of rushing the quarterback, the job he was hired to do in crunch-time situations like this.

Williams finished with two tackles and as many zeros across the rest of his stat line as there are on his paychecks. A guy named Kyle Moore had a better game with a half sack and two QB hits.
...
As for Stupor Mario, I’m wondering if Nix and his personnel men did enough vetting of the man’s personality and resume to decide he was worth the price of 20 players. He gets single blocked most all of the time and taking a leadership role doesn’t seem to be in his nature.

“I don’t care about your expectations,’’ he said to the media gathered near his locker stall. “I don’t care about anybody’s expectations.’’

Wow, Mario. Maybe it would please you to know that our expectations of you and the Bills have changed a lot in seven weeks. They have returned to the place they have been for a decade: low.

And there's the Mario we know so very well: The non-leader who is out only for himself and to hell with anybody who dares mention the "E word"...Expectations.

Couldn't have gone to a better team, the Bills. Reverse curse.

Not so subtle callout of MW by teammate:

Chris Kelsay: Buffalo Bills Not "Playing Hard Every Snap"
Quote:
"You watch the film, and not everybody was playing hard every snap, and that's unacceptable. ...

"If you aren't going to give us everything you've got, you shouldn't be on the field. I don't care who you are..."

Those are strong words from the longest-tenured Bill. Speculation immediately will start in Buffalo about who he's talking about, and two big-name players on the defensive line -- Marcell Dareus and Mario Williams -- haven't played well this season. Not many Bills defenders have played well; they are 31st in yards allowed and points allowed. It's not easy to give up 35 points to the Titans.

"You're only as good as the effort you put forth. I don't care who it is," Kelsay said. "I'd take Mario Williams at full health and full speed probably over anybody else in the league. At the same time, I'd take Sean Ferguson, who we cut, over a guy that's playing 50 percent, and I think our coaches would, too. The playmakers have to make plays, and the way you do that is giving all-out effort every play."

I kinda thought once Mario got paid he may slack off some, but I never expected a Albert Haynesworth type fall. Now I wonder when his little wrist heals if he ever comes back to at least playing good every third game. nah

I know some of you think it's a small thing. I think it's huge. A Gary Kubiak player would never say anything like that to the media. It makes it very difficult for a coach to bring in a new culture when they are having to deal with these kind of things.

To a certain extent a player has to be like that...these guys don't get to where they are without that kind of attitude....meaning having their own expectations of themselves rather than what the media thinks.......however, you absolutely never come out & say it...

At the end of the day If the contract he signed there hastens the move of that franchise from buffalo to LA....hey
