Not So Super Mario
It’s never a good sign when you say buy a new car, and as soon as you drive it off the lot the tranny explodes. You just blew a wad on your new ride and now its damaged goods. This is exactly what Bills’ fans think about their 100 million dollar man Mario Williams. Just a few preseason games in a Buffalo uniform, he damaged his wrist. And so far he’s been a major bust on the defensive line. The six year contract he signed made him the highest paid defensive player of all time. Might as well as flushed that dough down the crapper.
Obviously something had to be done so during the bye week Williams had arthroscopic surgery. He’s says it’s done wonders. His wrist already has a better range of motion. He’s able to work out and push weights again. Williams says the only discomfort he’s having is where the two tiny incisions are at. He says he’s raring to go and will most definitely be in the lineup against his former club in Houston Sunday.
For his and the fans sake, I hope he’s right and that everything heals up properly. A defensive end’s lifeblood is his hands, pushing off and moving through bodies. By his own admission this has been a very weird injury saying, ‘I’ve never had something where it's lingered this long.’ Well I got news for you Mario. It’s the first sign of that slippery slope called getting old.
