|Jim Schwartz planning 'attack scheme' for Bills' defense |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(1/27/14) New Bills defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz is looking forward to working with all of Buffalo's talent up front, led by Mario Williams, Kyle Williams and Marcell Dareus.
"We’re an attack scheme, it’s a scheme built on the guys up front getting after the quarterback," the former Lions coach said Monday. "As much as you want to be multi-dimensional with personnel groups, this league comes down to one on one and I think we have some guys that can do that.
"Whatever anybody wants to tag the system as far as a name, it won’t be us," he added. "We’re just going to try to do whatever we can every week to do the best to have the game plan. I think the similarities you’ll see is it will be as aggressive as it can be and try to be as physical as we can be and it will be an attack style."

That violation was not specified, but Buffalo media has speculated it was for his continuing lateness for meetings. He had also been suspended for the first quarter in Week 16.

|Marcell Dareus records two sacks |
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(9/29/13) Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus had a two-sack performance on Sunday during a home win over the Ravens Week 4. Dareus added seven tackles to finish second on the team.
Dareus had five solo stops to go with his two sacks. The 23-year-old has three sacks on the season after four games to go with 19 tackles. The Bills play at Cleveland on Thursday of Week 5.
|Marcell Dareus is an interior defensive lineman and has minimal Fantasy value in IDP leagues. In 2012, his second year in the NFL, Dareus had 39 total tackles (26 solo) with 5.5 sacks and a fumble recovery. He has 11 sacks in two years, and his upside is minimal as a stat producer. He is not someone to target in the majority of IDP leagues. (Updated 4/25/13) |
