    Yawn...

    At least the loudmouthed blowhard acknowledges his desperate celebration of mediocrity (in a losing cause).

  • WolfPackInTheHizzouse Nov 7, 2012

    LOL

    Mario has had MULTIPLE, MULTIPLE SACK games.... ftr- this past weekend was FAR from his "career day".

    just throwing that out there, in case some moronic, cowardly, hole fan attempts to claim it was.

    Guffaw @ REALITY slapping the SNOT out of pastel pansies!!!

  • kato_karma.v3 Nov 7, 2012

    LOL.

    Career game...in a loss.

    Sounds quite Glennon-like.

    (celebrators of mediocrity have to pick and find what they can)

  • WolfPackInTheHizzouse Nov 7, 2012

    LOL

    all he did against his old team this past weekend was-

    7 tackles, 5 of them SOLO
    2 TFL
    1 Sack
    1 QB hit

    his 7 tackles LED the team he's currently on, who are glad to have given him the HIGHEST CONTRACT EVER offered to a defensive player.

    also, does anyone remember when the last time a pastel pansy was the FIRST OVERALL PICK in the NFL Draft????

    guh-chortle!!!

    g'times!

    Mario Williams, the first pick of the 2006 draft, returns to Houston for a game against the Texans. His selection over Reggie Bush in 2006 was initially controversial until Williams consistently started sacking quarterbacks. His move to the Buffalo Bills in free agency last offseason has been blasted because he's been mostly invisible on one of the worst defenses in the league.http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/page/1stand10-12week9/biggest-nfl-games-week-9-john-clayton-first-10

    this year he's actually only the 7th highest paid DE in the land...

    BUT....

    he's GUARANTEED $50 Mil large... one of the highest GUARANTEES in the land.. with a chance to earn up to $100 Mil.

    it is what it is...

    The Buffalo Bills' addition of high-priced defensive free agent Mario Williams was celebrated by the team's fans as a sign the franchise was on its way toward earning respect.

    Four games into Williams' tenure, however, the move is proving to be a disaster for both player and team.

    FIFTEEN % INCREASE in year over year sales!!! IN a DOWN ECONOMY!!!

    the loudmouthedblowhard has trouble reading and comprehending.

    he actually thinks that all season ticket buyers attend all home games.

    much less likely, based on Mario's (lack of) production to date.

    then again, they can't be blamed for wanting to see some ROI.

    (btw, Mario was not the only owner spend that is not reaping investment...just the biggest one).

    The Bills owner brought Buffalo the BEST DE in the game today, and the Buffalo residents responded accordingly... to the tune of UP 15% YEAR OVER YEAR in season ticket sales!!!LMBAO @ REALITY, vs. where the hinyhurt coward lives!!!

    Can you say "negative ROI"???...

    "I'm ecstatic, very excited. I can't wait for the opportunity," Williams said Thursday after signing a six-year deal potentially worth $100 million. "There's no pressure. I've played against great quarterbacks. And I'm looking forward to playing against these quarterbacks, chasing them down and making things happen."

    Williams' deal, which includes $50 million in guaranteed money, is the richest ever given to an NFL defensive player. It came after two days of talks, which started when the Bills flew the former top draft pick to Buffalo on a private jet Tuesday, shortly after the NFL's free-agency period opened.

    Buffalo getting 'billed'...
    but not getting what they paid for.

    7 solo, 2 assisted tackles in 4 games (1.5 sacks).

    Most recently, the Mario-led D gives up 52 points & 580 yards...
    333 passing yards and 247 rushing.
