|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."

|Mario Williams makes his only tackle count |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(12/22/13) Bills defensive lineman Mario Williams is nearing his career-high in sacks, after picking up his 13th of the season in a 19-0 win over the Dolphins in Week 16. Williams' lone tackle in the game was a sack.
Williams established his career high in 2007, when he got the quarterback 14 times. He has one more game to reach that mark.
|Mario Williams has one tackle in loss |
|by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(11/3/13) Bills defensive end Mario Williams had one tackle in Sunday's 23-13 loss to the Chiefs. Williams now has 22 tackles (and 11 sacks) on the season.
The Bills travel to Pittsburgh to face the Steelers in Week 10.
|Mario Williams signed a monster six-year, $96 million contract before the 2012 season, but he failed to produce at that level. He did get 10.5 sacks to go with 48 total tackles (37 solo), two fumble recoveries and two forced fumbles, but the Bills and Fantasy owners were probably expecting closer to 20 sacks. Williams played well, and this was the third time in his career he's had double-digit sacks. We still value him as a solid defensive lineman in IDP leagues, and his potential for double digits in sacks make him a valuable commodity at a thin position. He should be one of the first defensive ends off the board in the majority of leagues. (Updated 4/25/13) |
