Might she opened the Bulldog. Bills in Texans on Sunday Mario Williams in almost any event. This season three and -- any other record we'd be talking a lot about him this week. With the bills having this opponent his former team Houston ESPN dot com's headline Mario Williams I didn't want to leave. It's not in quotes there are some quotes a bottom that sound pretty much like that. Paul Hamilton was at the stadium today has a lot of quotes from Williams. On our website WGR 550. Dot com we have Paul with -- us now out of elaborate on this and tell us what he thinks it means if anything what Williams sent a ball. -- good good is it is it misleading that that the headline that espn.com story Mario Williams I didn't want to leave. He did but he said that today you know in a sense where any it was very carefully multiple about the sub four times ago. I want to stress that goes that's the thing that I think bothers them is that people don't and he does this all came about before he became a free agent. That he didn't want to leave beset fans would come up means they don't leave and he said I would say about but I don't want to leave. But he said in all of the general manager it and that's his right did not want to offer him a contract and you know living in did not offer him a contract to create. He came and it was time to move on both -- -- he was very careful too because I don't want my words twisted here even said that. Because -- this all. Happened before I became a free agent. Because you know I wanted to stay and they basically gave me a one way -- -- out the door so in that case that it was time to move on. Well okay Paula I think that you know that's. Well explained and and I appreciate the the point that Williams was careful to say this isn't about buffalo. Do you think though from your experience do you think that it means anything it's telling at all. That he went to such lengths to talk about. Houston and we know why he wanted to stay in the first place and all of that I mean -- a -- trying to load that question is wanna hear you talk about. Whether you think it's sort of unusual that a guy would spend as much time pontificating about his old situation is Williams did. No because one thing I -- that -- before yes the only sport but this week -- spoken twice this week but normally speaks once a week. But when he speaks he answers every single question. He doesn't get caught short. He doesn't say no comment. He pretty much I think -- and North Korea and -- tell you how he personally feel. -- he was asked direct questions today and he answered them. You can -- -- an agenda like -- make an opening statement or anything like that. You know he was talking he was asked about his injury at first I ask you about coming back to Houston and what that means to have. And I ask if there's any animosity towards the Faxon who. It is not a direct question and and people other media members were asking him direct questions to what he gave them the answer to it so. Quite out of that they'll probably would have there have been times as you know I've been -- and -- and had a problem with things he said and things he's done on the field. And that type of thing but today. You know I I thought it was what it is better -- to be quite honest with you. Paul do you think the fans would be wrong to read his comments. Are here to make these comments. And think like dude. I don't wanna hear about like you lamenting about what happened in Houston what I wanna hear about is that you wanna go back there and make them sorry nearly Hugo. I was interested to -- you answered that question. -- is that he's not going back there to prove anything to the Texans are those -- He -- asked that question he said. I'm going to prove something to that myself in this game we have to be better. That's -- that's what this is all about not going up proving anything to the fact that. It's proving something to ourselves that we can be better each and every one of us. And he did make it into -- -- thing not I'm going back to Houston and I wanna prove something about. He pretty much group -- that idea right off the bat so you know he at least did make it into what seem type thing when asked about that. Paul Hamilton with -- us well which were coming off the the bye week here. And I know for me I'm thinking is probably trouble thinking this is probably true of a lot of people. Your little less edgy about the Tennessee loss -- just the player of the team when you get away from it for a little bit and I'm guessing also that that's. True of the players that you noticed today around the team a little bit more. Enthusiasm for life. Yeah absolutely -- Barrymore well rested it gave them a chance. Get the negativity out of their mind and if you start fresh so to speak and you know -- -- -- -- through this whole season. And -- not all of predicting a -- would predict otherwise. You call when one of these two games coming up now you got your signature win of Iraq. Beat Houston will be New England. Because you've been telling us since training camp -- about a football team. You've been telling us this training camp that losing is no longer accept it is time for the team to make the next stop. And actually there's seven games to actually taken a step backwards or more maybe two steps backward. But you have the opportunity here. He got a signature -- -- -- how long is -- bad since we've seen not act and even tell you I couldn't even tell you when the last time. They went on the road and beat a team like they're going to play in Houston that are going to play in New England so okay. You guys are better you guys still wanna be in the playoff race. Come back home against the Miami Dolphins on Thursday 500 on this road trip and then Mitt -- and maybe we can talk. You know we did have the same conversation before the niner game what would that win has the been able to get a compare to and just to fill it out since since Paul as part of that kind of context. They did winning game in Cincinnati. One year where they were an underdog like this 1011 points but it was a game that meant nothing to their season. They've had that once or twice the bank -- -- and it went eleven games losing their last two including -- yeah I mean he wasn't the same -- I would say because there was no real stake for the bills the last time they want a game that really helped them. Against a good team on the road you know a real statement like that you have to go back to the nineties and you know it's debatable so it's all you have to go back. Early to the ninety's to find one at a game like the one in Dallas. In the Indy three in a game like that where they're just expected to win there on the road and it matters. And it's really -- You know grown fifteen to twenty years since they have a single road win like this one would be or like next one. It could be so I mean they're they're too. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- That to me to -- this franchise is going to be laundering. And you were doing whatever expend doing for the last twelve years until they get that bit about victory is the next step to me. As far as may validating this franchise and until they can do that. To me it's just same Ole same -- It's been pretty much same old same old but worse in my opinion this year. And no better place to start using your face -- one of the of the you know -- the third best running back the other -- when it comes to yards per game 94 yards a game. On the ground. He's very good changing direction -- very good at finding the hole. And the bill also there are as bad as picked up against the run. So you know let's see what this bye week is done you -- -- gave wants that. What you figured out and that thing I think what bugs me about the bills' defense is. And it you know if that excuses I think there were able to read these big crimes are being knocked off this gap control they're not in the right places -- the right time. So -- -- got nothing on the on the field and not think on their feet. Why are -- on in game seven. Why are you in the wrong place against a running back it's done nothing this year. Why -- why it's -- to have an easy. It just blasts through and next thing you know is 83 are now you know why why that's still happening in Augusta not comprehend. That you're supposed to be in this gap -- spoke to cover this whole this -- to be playing this technique. It's seven games into the season the second preceded the system the first week with a new defense. And -- are you guys just not Smart enough to be able figure that out. Ottawa Paul Hamilton here Paul's got a lengthy story with lots of quotes from Mario Williams Wallace talked with Mario earlier today. I'm him but from the -- standpoint all assuming you were there for dailies Wednesday news conference. What what did the coach had to say about the surgery and maybe their expectations here after seven games. Four for Mario Williams from here to the end. He just basically give an update that he was going to practice some limited basis and he felt. But I won't tell you he's definitely going to play on nobody goes I think it's in the upper ninety percentage of the time. So he just didn't wanna put a definite on -- so you know he's he's pretty well counting and a Williams to be in the lineup. And -- -- that specifically. Is he says he goes back to expect that could've played better. We're gonna dig it seemed everybody was better he won't specifically. Probably gets specifically talk about it it appears. In the -- a bad -- last -- you'd been up and down. But he won't specifically talk about Williams is just you know you out. He goes yeah -- government so nobody else opens up about it in -- that the answer you always step. Anything else of note from the coach Paula any injury updates inning we need to know before we. Got Anderson doesn't look like he's going to be able to go. Keep possibly. But he said it's not looking like you're going to be able to get on the field this week -- speedy. He was out there but I'll tell you what when I was watching this and -- taught in the coaches of these Beijing and I it's getting harder harder than we -- on the field it's time to wrap up here really here. Brooks is ready to come back he wouldn't commit abused and you know activate Brooks or not -- -- If they do that coveted -- right out of my -- I mean they do have a -- -- -- -- they can take off but. You know I think maybe it's an opportunity begin to pull out to a podium and called called -- -- career I mean it's -- this is not working you're not recovering. You know it's just one thing after another within minutes same knee injury now but keeps -- -- there's. No reason for me to believe it's gonna get any better. So I don't know I just I just think right now he's been in Israel. Job pays pretty good. I don't to be snide -- been one of my favorite players from the minute forgettable era but -- But I agree that he's gonna -- I agree that's probably earned that money you know and no it doesn't complain he's not an error an athlete I mean you know those are when you're kind of on a training camp. You know. It was real you know Ali you know and -- -- you you -- like. Like sitting with the middle like his answers and that type of thing and you would hate to do that storm and I think the built partly. Have been somebody else had to then we -- -- the Calvin I would been cut and now. -- -- it's here it's McGee and and they have a lot of respect and and not and a lot of love for Terrence McGee about organizations so I think they're just giving him every opportunity. To try to get himself back. They give Paul any questions for us today. No I didn't think. Well are lost -- well. We know I'm elated I would guess maybe like the same thing is Jeannie Daley said did you know 90% chance I would suggest you wouldn't have any good. You're right. Thank you -- that I've got a question for Greg.
