Buffalo Bills defensive end Mario Williams did something against the Houston Texans that we have not seen a lot of this season — sacked the opposing quarterback. Williams has not lived up to the $96 million contract the Bills signed him to this offseason, but recording a sack against the team he spent six seasons with must have been quite gratifying.
Williams popped up and wagged his finger at the Houston sideline after sacking Schaub, which drew boos from most of the more than 70,000 Texans fans in attendance. And he loved every second of it.
“It was great,” Williams said when asked about the boos, via 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.”
Whatever helps you sleep at night. Buffalo’s defense has been one of the worst in the league despite the insane amount of money the team spent this past offseason, and Williams highlights what has been a disappointing season. Aside from ripping the replacement officials earlier in the season, we have not seen Mario’s name in the headlines for a whole lot.
Williams says booing means the Texans fans have kept him in their hearts. I say fans don’t like players who chase the most money.
