Found October 30, 2012 on Queen City Sports:
Since week one, all Bills fans have heard about is this ailing wrist that Mario Williams is dealing with. Williams has attributed it to his poor play during his first seven games as a Bill, constantly saying that it’s hampering him because of the pain. Now, that should be behind him. During the Bills bye-week, Williams had a “mystery procedure” done to alleviate the pain and pressure on his wrist. The procedure was deemed a success by Williams, and now he is saying that his wrist wont effect him anymore and that the only pain he feels is where the incision was. Well Mario, do you know what that means? Opposing offensive tackles have been taking care of Mario Williams pretty easily this season No more excuses, no more using the wrist as a crutch, and no more under-performing. Sure, it’s understandable that the wrist really did have a huge impact on his performance. And sure, maybe we should give him the benefit of the doubt seeing that it’s only been seven games into a six-year deal (In comparison, Julius Peppers had just 2 sacks and 16 tackles in his first seven games with Chicago last year). But the time is now for him to step up and actually prove that he’s worth some of the $96-million that he was signed for back in March. You say that you’ll finally be able to do what you’re used to doing on the field? Then go prove it. Prove to the loyal Bills fans that you’re not just another guy who go a big pay day then quit. Prove that you’re actually worth the hype you’ve received, and not just some overrated schmuck. You here the comments coming from fans in Houston that this is the type of player Williams has always been. He’s been expected to do great things, but then under-performs and/or gets hurt. It’s a reputation that has seemingly carried over with him to the Bills. Buffalo plays Williams’ former team the Houston Texans, arguably the best team in all of football, this weekend. There is no better time for Williams to show the world exactly what he is capable of. When he first arrived in Buffalo he said he likes to lead by example. Well, then go out on the field Sunday and lead by example by giving it your all every snap you’re on the field. You want to change people’s perception of you Mario? Perform. It’s as simple as that.

Is Mario Williams a streaky player?

Whenever I hear someone talk about a player being streaky, I automatically think of Thomas Vanek. I'm not sure if that is fair, because some people say ALL scorers are streaky while others don't believe in that.  One day, I'll be sure to do a post on here to compare Vanek to other scorers in the NHL. For today, I'm going to check out if Mario Williams is a streaky...
