Bills GM Nix on Mario Williams

Buffalo Bills GM Buddy Nix answered questions from reporters (in Arizona, and via conference call) on Tuesday afternoon.

I asked Buddy about DE Mario Williams’ performance thus far. His answer:

“I think from the time we signed him – when everybody got so excited, and we did, because we’ve seen what Mario’s done for six years before he got here – it’s hard for him to live up to the expectations that everybody’s got. But it’s not just Mario. Mario actually plays better than people give him credit for. He causes plays to be made by other people, or should be made by other people. So not to defend him – he can play better, we expect him to – but so can everybody else. We all need to play better. I don’t care, and I shouldn’t get into how much money a guy makes, but I don’t care if it’s getting paid ($1). None of us have earned it the last couple of weeks, so it don’t matter what the salary is. We all gotta do better – starting with me, and moving right down to every player we’ve got. I mean, we’ve got a chance … (We can’t go back and) win the last game, and I’ve got to live with that until next year. We’ve got a chance to play Sunday. Let’s do something about it.”

More soon…
