Mario Williams earned his ninth and tenth sacks of the 2013 season against Miami last weekend. He now has 73.5 career sacks and 43 since the 2009 season. Only seven players have more sacks than Williams in the past four and a half seasons.
But it seems like Williams has been inconsistent and streaky throughout his career. Since the 2009 season, he has gotten a sack in 29 different games, tied for 18th. That’s quite the drop from eighth. The rankings slide is a testament to how streaky Super Mario can be compared to other elite pass rushers. The top ten pass rushers in the past four and a half years, along with their sacks in the period of time, are in in the table below.no comments
Most of my generation knows a story or two about the 90s Bills. Once we get through the games, the player accolades and the outcomes, soon to follow will be an outline of their personalities. I think what always struck me about them wasn't just their bravado, which at times for any NFL team can be easily manufactured or just a guy being good with a quote. But what stuck out to me was their defiance when criticism came.no comments
I gotta admit, when the game became 21-17, I was kicking dirt on the Bills grave. Being outscored 21-3 in a 18-minute span will do that for you. Miami had momentum and the Bills looked lost on offense and the defense couldn't get to Tannehill. Yet, a funny thing happened..The Bills didn't quit. They didn't wither under the heat of the Miami sun. They kept fighting. How many times over the years have the Bills got their lunch stolen from them on the road? They went 371 days between their last road victory in Arizona and before that they had won just once in a calendar year. Add it up and that's 2 road wins in two years. Ugh. They just don't win on the road. EVER!no comments
Thad Lewis was solid in his second career NFL game, completing 19 of his 32 pass attempts for 216 yards and rushing seven times for 17 yards. His first pass was a 47 yard completion to TJ Graham (the pass was caught 27 yards beyond the line of scrimmage), which led to the first touchdown of the game: a Thad Lewis scramble for three yards.no comments
I'm terrible at selling myself. I'm terrible at negotiating a higher rate for a job. I'm terrible at trying to sell myself to girls. I'm terrible at selling why Buffalo Wins is.. um...whatever. I'm terrible at giving off an air of confidence. I just don't sell myself well. I don't think it is about a lack of confidence as much as it is about me wanting to be modest, not wanting to come off as arrogant and self-indulgent. In a way, I do feel like I've never gotten what I'm worth in anything.no comments
