Having been made the $100 million man this offseason, Mario Williams was expected to wreak havoc on opposing offenses, starting with the Jets in Week 1.
All things considered, however, his Bills debut was something of a dud, as New York's offensive line -- right tackle Austin Howard, in particular -- completely stonewalled the former Texan, limiting him to just one tackle. That's right. No quarterback sacks, no hurries, no knockdowns. Just one measly tackle.
Instead of giving credit where it's due, Williams blamed his unsuccessful afternoon on the replacement officials, implying they let the Jets' linemen get away with cheap shots.
“Pass blocking doesn’t consist of illegal hands to the face just about every play, which, when somebody tells you that, and you’re five yards away from it, and you walk away like you don’t see him telling you you’re getting punched in the face every time, then that dictates somebody like myself having to take care of that...

Mario Williams is expected to have a major impact in Buffalo this season. On Sunday, he was a nonfactor. The man the Bills signed to a $100 million contract over the offseason had only one tackle. The Jets completely had their way with the defense Williams is supposed to anchor this season, smashing the Bills 48-28.
Naturally, it was the replacement officials’ faults that Williams...

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson left the game in the second quarter today after a hit to the knee. The RB was the leading fantasy RB last year until he sustained an injury. His return is questionable. Jackson took the hit as the Bills trailed the Jets 21-0 in the second quarter. He had a great year as a fantasy player last year in Jackson’s absence.
Second year running back C...
Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson left yesterday’s game against the Jets during the second quarter yesterday with an apparent knee injury.
It has now been revealed that he will be out 3-4 weeks after his MRI earlier today.

Luckily for the Bills, C.J. Spiller filled...
Buffalo Bills receiver David Nelson is expected to miss the rest of the season with a torn ligament in his right knee.
And the news is a little more encouraging for running back Fred Jackson after tests on his right knee came up inconclusive. Doctors will now wait between seven and 10 days to conduct further tests to determine the severity of Jackson's injury.
Two people familiar...
Steve Johnson is becoming a notorious Darrelle Revis killer; he’s as notorious for that as he is for his premature touchdown dances. Johnson caught 3 passes for 84 yards, all against Revis, week 9 last year, and then another 8 catches for 75 yards and a touchdown, again all against Revis, week 12 last year. That touchdown was the only touchdown Revis allowed last year and those...

Well that was one pathetic performance by the Buffalo Bills.
Obviously, the season is not over. But that was not a positive look to start the year. We'll see what they can do against Kansas City next week.
Watching the game made me realize once again why I love hockey so much more. Hockey is continuous action, and anything can happen at any time. Football is stop, go, stop...
Welcome to the first edition of Buddy Nixon Live! We’re on the field, Rich Gannon and Marv Albert on the call. Check the inactives list here.
The Bills defense will see the field first, which I think most Bills fans can get on board with. It would be great to punch them in the mouth early, get a stop, and get field position.
Bills running back Fred Jackson will be sidelined for the remainder

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.

It’s wasn’t the season opener the Bills were hoping for.
That’s about all that can be said about the Buffalo Bills 48-28 loss to the New York Jets on Sunday afternoon.
In a game that was ugly from the get-go, the Bills could never get going and trailed by as...
No more training camp, no more preseason, no more waiting! The 2012 NFL season is upon us, replacement referees and all.
