With Tim Tebow now in the AFC East, he’s unlikely to be the starting quarterback when the Bills face the Jets, but even if for some reason he is Buffalo has last year’s success against him to go on.
Appearing on the radio in Austin earlier this week after taking in Texas pro day, Bills CB Aaron Williams was asked about his rookie season and specifically about the interception he had in Buffalo’s 40-14 win over Denver with Tebow at quarterback in Week 16 last season.
“A lot of the guys got tired of hearing the Tim Tebow effect that was on ESPN every day,” said Williams. ”We had lost a handful of games in a row and a lot of game before the Denver we had worked and prepared hard and lost on last minute plays. We felt we just weren’t finishing games. But against Denver we just came out hot. Our fans came with a lot of energy. I thought we put too much pressure on ourselves after the first five games. We felt like we had to make plays instead of letting plays come to us. We just had fun and did what we do best. It was fun, especially against Tim Tebow. How many people can say they intercepted Tim Tebow? So I had a lot of fun that game.”
Tebow was 13-30 passing for 185 yards and ran for a touchdown. He also had four interceptions and was sacked three times including one sack that led to an interception return for a touchdown.
The Bills cornerback also said he was excited to see free agent Mario Williams was visiting Buffalo and took to twitter to encourage Bills fans to show Williams how welcoming Buffalo can be.
“I was appealing to fans on twitter to give him some hospitality and not let him leave without signing with us,” Williams said. ”To help him realize we have the best fans in the NFL. It really is like a college atmosphere. And when we signed him I was excited I called Jairus (Byrd), Da’Norris (Searcy) and George (Wilson) and we were all really excited, but we’ve also got to realize that one person can’t win all the games. We’ve got to come together to finish our goal. It helps the team a lot, especially the secondary to have pressure, but we all still have jobs to do.”
