Yeah, but, at some point, Mario's gotta bring a veteran's attitude to the game, regardless of the defensive staff and coaching. Yes, the coaching, scheme and staff ARE vitally important, but, Mario doesn't seem to bring anything at all to the table, other than size.

He's in his sixth year. And we're still saying, "The coaches are not using him right!"

Come on.

one good example...Andre Johnson was good under Capers...good under Kubiak. Superstars should be good with just about any coach. Players that need "good coaching" to bring their "A" game are not superstars even though they may still be paid like one.

I am going to relate this not because of Mario but the overall Bills coaching issue. Donte Whitner just had an interview about how the Bills have plenty of talent on D but the coaches don't know how to use it. Having gone from the Bills to the Niners he has some perspective.

Default Re: Super Mario not so super so far

The NFL is a coaches league. Just look at our defensive transformation or San Francisco whole team transformation last year. That being said it's usually the borderline talent that showes the most improvement with better coaching. Not the star players.

Mario seems to have checked out there was a time when he was the only player we had getting any pressure on the qb. I never thougt he was 100 mil man but for a while he was the best we had.

I have nothing against Mario. But it sounds just like when he was in Houston. Needless to say Buffalo fans around here are not happy and think this is just Mario not taking responsibility and not putting in the effort.

To piggyback on Chris' Post via ESPN

http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/84...mario-williams

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.

Default Re: Super Mario not so super so far

Despite all of Mario's excuses of poor performance due to a wrist injury that he supposedly sustained in the preseason, it's never shown up on the Bills Injury Report. This is despite the fact that, if you've been watching (I have) he has been wearing a wrist cast for the past 3 games. BTW, a player at Mario's position (as opposed obviously to a skilled position player) should not in any way be significantly impacted with the presence of a wrist cast. There is no reason that he cannot grab or push or wrap a QB an O player. In fact, if he hasn't yet, he could learn to soften up his opponent by clubbing him once in while when the refs aren't paying attention.



NFL probes Bills' injury reporting

Quote:
The NFL is investigating why Williams, who landed $50 million in guaranteed money this offseason, has publicly complained about his wrist as recently as last week, yet he still is not on Buffalo's injury report, sources said.

The Bills said Williams has not missed any practice reps and there never was a doubt he would play in each game.

Yet the NFL's injury report policy says "significant or noteworthy injuries must be listed" regardless.

"Even if the player takes all the reps in practice, and even if the team is certain that he will play in the upcoming game," the rule states. "This is especially true of key players and those players whose injuries have been covered extensively by the media. ... This policy is of paramount importance in maintaining the integrity of the NFL."
Now, if he's the Bills defense is that he is not really injured......that he just likes wearing the cast, maybe he should make it identifiable as "ornamental" by having it gold plated or diamond-studded like his ear rings.

Mario should pickup his game checks with a ski mask on. He's straight robbing the Bills.

49ers are having their way with the Bills defense right now. Alex Smith has a perfect passer rating. No pressure from the 100 million dollar man

Boy they sure were all mouthy when Mario signed.

How many sound bites or tweets did the Bills staff or players produce, talking about how tough they were going to be with Mario??? LMAO.

Bills can suffer. I know we sure did, specifically our loss to them in playoffs. Yeah, they can suffer for all I care. And to know our former player is draining them of $100 million? Icing on the cake.
