PLAYERS: Mario Williams
TEAMS: Buffalo Bills
After Sunday’s loss to the Texans, Bills defensive end Mario Williams told the media that he enjoyed getting booed by the fans during his first appearance at Reliant Stadium since leaving the Texans via free agency. “It was great,” Williams said, per the Buffalo News. “The biggest thing for me is if you go out and make a play and get booed, I know I’m in your heart. That’s the most important thing. “If it’d been quiet, then I would’ve felt something different. I know you’re thinking about me.” I still don’t understand why Texans’ fans are booing Williams when their team decided to let him walk in free agency.   var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })(); sr_adspace_id = 1000005525107; sr_adspace_width = 300; sr_adspace_height = 250; sr_ad_new_window = true; sr_adspace_type = "graphic";

Fitzpatrick continues to fade for Bills

Ryan Fitzpatrick's struggles now date back a full calendar year, and there's no sign of him breaking out of his funk. Going into November 2011, the Bills were 5-2 and seemingly on their way to their first playoff berth since the 1999 season, and the ink was barely dry on Fitzpatrick's six-year, $59 million contract, a personnel decision that now seems absurd.
