I expect us to win convincingly.

I am interested in seeing Spiller play. I was very high on him in the draft the year he came out to the point I was advocating moving up to get in the hunt for him. He seems to be putting things together.

Mario looking for sympathy votes.

Link to full story HERE.

Quote:
As Mario Williams prepares to face his former team for the first time Sunday, the highly-paid Buffalo Bills defensive end is maintaining he didn't want to leave the Houston Texans in the first place.

"I didn't want to enter free agency in the first place, but it was a one-way door given to me by the GM to leave Houston," Williams told KRIV-TV in Houston. "I want the fans there to know entering free agency was not my decision."
You guys who didn't like Jacoby getting boo'd, I think it will be 10 times worse when Mario gets onto the field this Sunday.

A 10.5 pt spread is a bit much. I'd actually take that bet. We've been known to come out flat - especially at home for some reason - and I wouldn't be amazed if the game was much closer to a 7-pt game than a double-digit blowout. Buffalo has some weaponry. They just seem to screw the pooch at times and never recover from their mistakes.

Mario is not getting too many sympathy votes. LINK


Quote:
As explained earlier today during the latest Pro Football Talk on NBC Sports Network, that’s true. The Texans indeed forced Williams to become a free agent. Because, per a source with knowledge of the dynamics in Houston, G.M. Rick Smith decided the team could win without him.
Quote:
Given Williams’ performance in Buffalo and the Texans’ performance without him, Smith’s decision puts him in line for the Executive of the Year award.

I think that Mario is semi-right because the contract the texans probably offered him (if any) is more than likely less than half of what he's making in Buffalo.

Sucks because I think he could've really done some damage as a WOLB in Wade's scheme, but alas we will never know.

I think so too. However, I think he'd be a little more limited compared to Barwin and Reed. Barwin and Reed actually do cover man to man routes. Mario was limited to just dropping into a zone coverage. That's what I remember anyway. Somebody might correct me if I'm wrong.

Wade did some interesting scheming against the Ravens. I hope he continues that mad scientist type crap because it got Mercilus on the field with the others. I'd be trying to get Whitney on the field as much as possible if he contributes as much as he did against the Ravens

Wade used Marcus Ware as a pure edge rusher in Dallas. I think Mario would have been the same...sans a drop back or two like Ware did. I think they only did that when they went to some gangbusters rush and he covered the flats (for the most part). I think Mario would have played better here too...but glad we saved the cash for other players.

The main player that scares me on their team is Stevie Johnson. Spiller is a huge weapon for them, but I think we'll find a way to keep him in check.
