Car-racing charges dropped against Bills DT Marcell Dareus


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Jim Schwartz planning 'attack scheme' for Bills' defense


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(1/27/2014) 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."
