When asked to assess Mario Williams’ first four games with the Bills in his weekly radio appearance on WGR Sportsradio 550, Bills GM Buddy Nix explained how Williams is in a bit of a no win situation.

Nix said in part that no one could live up to a $100 million dollar contract.

“Why would you worry about a guy in four weeks that has done it for five or six years,” Nix asked. “The guy is a great player, the money he got he’s never going to live up to that. Nobody can and you knew that when you did it that it was going to be under the microscope and criticized at every turn. He realizes that and wants to play better and we expect him to. Fans and media have a unique position, that if you sign a guy, you overpaid and he’s not worth it, and if you don’t sign him you’re cheap. You’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t.”
