As a premier defensive end in the NFL, Mario Williams is often the target of extra attention by opposing offenses. Often seeing double teams, chip blocks from running backs, Williams is used to the added challenges of getting to the quarterback. What he won’t stand for however, are the illegal blocks that sometimes go unnoticed. And in those cases Williams will employ the old ‘an for an eye’ approach.
In an interview with GQ magazine Williams said if the illegal chop blocks start surfacing there will be consequences.
“You’ve got to be careful of guys trying to chop-block you. You know, running backs, the receivers. You’ve got to just hope that your knees are fine and you can avoid those chop blocks. If you’re engaged with somebody, and then someone else comes from behind you and cuts into the back of your legs and does it purposely, you’ve got to be prepared for it. It happens,” Williams said. ”You know what you’re getting yourself into when you step on the field. But I look at it as “Eye for an Eye.” I don’t do anything dirty or cheap to anybody, but if you come out there and disrespect me, don’t think I’m not going to get even. I don’t go around knocking guys heads off while they’re just standing there. But if you do something to me or one of my teammates, somebody has to take care of it. Stuff like that happens over the course of a game. Eye for an eye. And the refs can’t see it all.”
