    What does this question even mean? What's the context?

    One snap until whistle is blown dead, winner takes all? Then either can come out of it on top.

    Through the course of an entire game? I think Brown could hold his own, Mario will get by him a couple of times and get a sack or two, but not enough for us to seriously worry.

    Mario's style doesn't include anything particularly troubling, in fact I think it's pretty good match up for Duane.

    I think Duane Brown will prevent him from getting a sack. Mario's same old bull rush will not ower power Duane..

    Bills have already said they're going to utilize Mario as a LE. That means he's going to be going up against Butler...and he's going to own that battle.

    In a matchup between D. Brown and C. Norris, I'd still take D. Bown... So Williams doesn't stand a chance

    T. Suggs is a much more polished pass rusher and mean D. Brown shut him down in both the games they played against each other. The week we play the Bills, if Mario is matched up against Duane, he might as well by a ticket and sit next to me in the stands, because you' ll be hearing his name about as often as mime.

    Yep...

    And I thought it was just the funniest things reading through some of those comments on the Bills board...

    When Butler started at LT in '10, I don;t remember him getting beaten by bull rushes. It was the speed guys with more than one move that gave him fits.
    It's going to be amusing for all of us who didn't think MW was all that watch the rest slowly realize the same thing.

    He answered your question, he said Mario.

    Then, he added his opinion that Brown is a better value.

    Exactly. That's how Wade would have played it, and that's how Dave Wannstedt will play it.

    No worries!! By the time we face the Bills, Mario will be hampered by Plantar Fasciitis, a sports hernia, maybe pectoral issues.......... or Something! So no matter where Mario lines up, our tackles say:

    "We got this!"

    :rolleyes: tell me about it..

    I can't believe there's posters here who actually believe Mario would get the best of Duane Brown. Not only does Brown hold more value... He's also the better football player.

    Mario Williams strictly beats people and gets his sacks with athleticism only (he's extremely lacking in the technique department). Guess what he won't be able to do with Duane Brown.. He won't be able to beat Brown with his athleticism. D. Brown is just as athletic as he is.

    Mario Williams is a two trick pony... and one of those tricks isn't very effective either. He's either going to try to bullrush you or he's going to try to run around the edge (thus running himself out of the play more often than not).. he has no spin move, has no inside move, and he still can't use his hands for **** 7 years in. Mario has nothing that he can throw at Duane, that Duane wouldn't be able to handle...

    Simply put, Mario doesn't have enough tools in his tool bag to beat Duane Brown and I'm really going to LMAO if Butler stone walls him as well.

    Mario Williams' high water mark in sacks over the last three years (and BTW, if I haven't said it before - well I have, I like Mario) has been like 9 sacks. Not only is that not $96 - $50 gauranteed NOT worthy, but I'm pretty sure that he never lived up to his $54 mill realized with his Texans rookie contract, but given the other two choices that draft year, I'm okay with it...

    The Texans were smart (Cap- hamstrung or not) were smart to not pursue the resigning of Mario...
