While ESPN analyst Damien Woody may have been praising the Buffalo Bills throughout the offseason, even going as far to predict that they would make the NFL Playoffs after signing free agent DE Mario Williams, the retired offensive lineman for the New England Patriots, Detroit Lions and New York Jets now has changed his tune on the biggest signing over the past year.
After watching the Jets destroy the Bills on Sunday, Williams complained that the replacement referees kept ignoring what he felt was illegal jabs to the face by Jets’ offensive lineman Austin Howard, who had just four games of NFL experience, including only one start prior to Sunday.
Woody wasn’t buying it.
“Mario had no effect on the game. None. Zero.” said Woody, who watched the game from the stands at the Meadowlands.
Zero effect may be a bit misleading. Williams did record one tackle in the game.
Still, for the Bills to pay a guy $100 million to record one lone tackle and no sacks, and then complain about replaceme...
