Chuck Pagano thinks Freeney and Mathis can do everything Mario Williams did as he made the move to 3-4 OLB: “If we can move towards the type of defense, the brand of defense that we’ve been playing where I just came from, we can evolve to that. I was talking to Mr. Irsay, if Wade Phillips can go to the Houston Texans and install the 3-4 with no offseason and make Mario Williams an outside linebacker and stand him up on early downs, that the two explosive, great athletes, the great pass rushers that we have on the edge here, I don’t see an issue. Our motto is simple me, complex you. To say I’m a 3-4 guy, we want to build a defense that is really flexible. It’s going to be really simple for our guys to execute, but when the offense prepares for it and they see it on Sunday, it’s going to look very complex to them. Just because we may line up and they say ‘Hey, look, they’re a 3-4 team,’ we could be a 4-3 team on first down, we could be an odd 3-4 look on second down and the Lord only...

Fan Friday 1-27

Another set of questions from AskChris@bills.nfl.net to answer as the draft and free agency become more and more the focus with each passing week. Let’s get started. 1 - Hey Chris, I have heard several rumors that Dwayne Bowe would like to be reunited with Chan Gailey.  Any thoughts on Buffalo being so far under the cap trying to sign Bowe and/ or Stevie or even going defense...

Feeding Frenzy

Let the free agent feeding frenzy talk begin.  First and foremost, pay this guy whatever he wants.  DE Mario Williams should be the main target for the Jaguars.  He will instantly transform our defensive front four into a nightmare for opposing QBs & easily double the Jags sack total.  I know he was injured, but he is young and will still be dominate for years. The Texans...
