Kyle among most productive interior rushers

Posted by Chris Brown on January 17, 2014 – 8:57 am

Bills Pro Bowl DT Kyle Williams set a career high in 2013 with 10.5 sacks. He also had 17 QB hits and 39 QB hurries in earning his third career Pro Bowl nod according to Pro Football Focus. PFF also had him as the highest rated defensive player on Buffalo’s roster for the 2013 campaign. So it’s not surprising to see that when it came to pass rush productivity among interior defenders, Williams ranked in the top five in the NFL.

PFF recently put together their pass rush productivity for their edge rushers and Buffalo’s Jerry Hughes topped the list. Now they’ve done the same with interior defenders and Williams ranks fifth in the league. Here’s a look at the chart put together by the stat crunchers at PFF.

For those who don’t know, Vinny Curry is a situational pass rusher for the Eagles. Just about everyone else on this list is a regular starter, though I question the Saints Cameron Jordan being on here knowing he rushed from an outside position a good deal of the time this past season.

Kyle tops NFL DTs in advanced metrics

Posted by Chris Brown on January 13, 2014 – 9:44 am

Bills DT Kyle Williams has already been recognized by his peers and opposing coaches as a Pro Bowl caliber player for the third time in his career. The advanced metrics football site AdvancedNFLStats.com agree wholeheartedly in Williams with their figures backing them up.

Williams is rated as the highest defensive tackle in the NFL for his performance in 2013. The veteran DT had the highest Win Probability Added figure with his time on the field for the Bills last season.

In addition Buffalo’s Marcell Dareus was rated seventh overall, making the Bills one of just two NFL clubs with two players in the top 10 on the list. The other team was the Detroit Lions, who had Ndamokung Suh and Nick Fairley. They rated second and fifth respectively.

Kyle excited about healthy offseason

Posted by Chris Brown on January 6, 2014 – 2:16 pm

For the first time in three years Bills Pro Bowl DT Kyle Williams will enter the offseason with a clean bill of health. After back-to-back offseasons of Achilles surgery, Williams has no surgical procedures this winter. That has him confident that his ninth NFL season will be one that he’ll enter the healthiest come next spring.

“I feel good,” said Williams. “The thing is I’m going to have a full offseason for the first time in three years, which I’m excited about. Coming into next year is probably going to be the healthiest I’ve ever been.”

Bills head coach Doug Marrone lightened Williams’ practice load during the season with the intent to keep his veteran DT from over working the surgically repaired achilles. According to Williams the timetable for the achilles to be full strength went through to the end of the season.

“I took Wednesdays off this year because the full healing on the surgery I had is nine to 10 months,” he said. “Well I went to training camp at six (months) and I’m at the 10-month point now to where it should be fully healed. I put a season of work on it and get an offseason of training and rehab on it I should be full strength and as healthy as I’ve ever been going into my ninth year, which gets me excited about it.”

Williams is expected to play in the Pro Bowl on Jan. 26th.

Kyle: There will be changes here

Posted by Chris Brown on December 29, 2013 – 10:57 pm

Bills captain Kyle Williams was disappointed to end his eighth season with the Bills the way the other seven before them have, which is out of the playoffs. At the same time he believes coach Marrone has established a culture that will demand better and those that were unable to fall in line and deliver won’t be around next season.

“I think that coach [Doug] Marrone has had a pretty good finger on the pulse of the team and maybe recognized the kind of guys he wants to keep around and build a team around,” said Williams. “I’m sure every team is changing. This team won’t be the same. We will have a lot of guys back but there’s always going to be pieces that you bring in, whether it’s through free agency or the draft, he’ll build something that is going to be good. We have a long off-season in front of us.

“Not the way I wanted to end my eighth year here, but I think moving forward we have some good pieces and some good things that we can build on. For me, I don’t have to have surgery this year. I’m excited about that. I’m going to be getting better.”

Bills 3 Pro Bowlers all 3-timers

Posted by Chris Brown on December 28, 2013 – 12:35 am

The Bills have three players from their roster who will be headed to Hawaii for the Pro Bowl, and all three are returning players.

Mario Williams, Jairus Byrd and Kyle Williams were all named to their third career Pro Bowls. It’s the first for Mario Williams with the Bills.

This is also the first time three Bills defenders were named to the initial Pro Bowl roster since 1997 when Bryce Paup, Ted Washington and Bruce Smith were named starters.

Kyle, Dareus make PFF Pro Bowl

Posted by Chris Brown on December 26, 2013 – 4:01 pm

The stat crunchers and film reviewers at Pro Football Focus have released their Pro Bowl teams and Buffalo’s two interior defensive linemen both got the nod.

Kyle Williams and Marcell Dareus were both honored for their play this season. Williams was selected as a “starter” while Dareus was listed as a backup. Here’s what they wrote.

Defensive Tackle: Gerald McCoy (TB), Ndamukong Suh (DET), Jurrell Casey (TEN) and Kyle Williams (BUF)

Backups: Dontari Poe (KC) and Marcell Dareus (BUF)

There are a lot of players who might feel wronged here. The nose tackle types who only play on early downs like Damon Harrison and Brandon Mebane are victims of their own limitations despite their excellent work against the run, while there simply wasn’t the room for Randy Starks or Jason Hatcher. It’s been a tremendous season for the DT spot, with us treating Kyle Williams as one because it’s the role that most closely resembles his on field work.

Belichick tips hat to Kyle Williams

Posted by Chris Brown on December 25, 2013 – 12:28 pm

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick has a lot of respect for all the talent on Buffalo’s defensive line, but he called Kyle Williams perhaps the best they’ve seen all season. Here’s why.

“Number 1, he’s very instinctive,” Belichick said. “He’s got a good feel for blocking patterns and protections and that type of thing. He anticipates well. He’s got very good quickness. He’s got a great motor. He’s got good playing strength, good balance, hard to knock off his feet. He makes a lot of plays on the backside because they can’t cut him off. They try to cut him and he hops over them, or they try to block him, and he’s too quick to get away from. He’s got good lateral quickness. He uses his hands well. He’s a smart player. He plays all out all the time.

“He’s done a real good job rushing the passer, penetrating, getting in the pocket. He’s done a good job in the running game, too. He can definitely ruin a game if we don’t do a good job on him. A very disruptive player.”

Stat change on a sack last Sunday

Posted by Chris Brown on December 18, 2013 – 3:31 pm

In last week’s game the Bills logged five more sacks and now have 49 on the season tying the team’s modern era record of 49 and one short of the all-time team record of 50 set in 1964. But there was a stat change in Buffalo’s sack tally made by the NFL this week.

Marcell Dareus was originally credited with a full sack on a 3rd-and-20 play in the first quarter when Chad Henne was dropped for an eight-yard loss. Upon further review it was determined that Dareus and Kyle Williams split the sack.

So on the season now, Kyle Williams has 8.5 sacks and Marcell Dareus has 7.5.

Fan Friday 12-13

Posted by Chris Brown on December 13, 2013 – 2:31 pm

Down the stretch they come. Bills at Jags Sunday, but first your questions on email at AskChris@bills.nfl.net and on Twitter @ChrisBrownBills.

1 - Chris,

Two quick questions-  Kyle Williams had surgery on each of his Achilles tendons, and both procedures were successful as reported.  Why is he still constantly on the injury report with this problem and needing to be rested during the practice week.  Is it a long recovery thing or a permanent condition?

Also, during the Atlanta game, I noticed when E. J. Manual came up to the line of scrimmage he had his mouth guard stuck in his face mask about half the time.  With the increased focus on him avoiding injuries, how is it that the coaches or other players weren’t on him about that?  Maybe he has trouble talking with it in, but forgets to replace it before calling the signals.

Thanks.
DR

CB: Kyle Williams Achilles’ surgeries were not to repair ruptures. They were to repair fraying and to remove bone spurs that were rubbing on his Achilles. To repair it they had to detach each Achilles, remove the bone spurs, repair the tendons, and then re-attach them.

Rehab for those procedures are typically 4-5 months. Those Achilles in the line of work that Williams does get very sore and stiff after games. So the coaching staff affords Williams an extra day of rest to recover on Wednesdays.

Just think for a second about having double Achilles surgery and then grappling with 300-plus pound guys 60 times a game and you’re holding your ground and driving up field relying on those two Achilles to power your body forward.

That’s a lot of stress and wear on those tendons each week.

As for EJ’s mouthpiece, he takes it out at times when he needs to communicate with the O-line pre-snap. Sometimes it’s because it’s an option play that he wants to change from a run to a pass. Sometimes it’s to change a protection. But talking with that thing in your mouth is almost impossible for a QB.

 

2 – Hi Chris,

I saw a press conference recently that Doug Marrone conducted in the aftermath of Buffalo’s 34-31 loss to Atlanta. Based on that, It seems like he is still changing the losing culture in the locker room. Earlier this week, the Bills had signed Tony Moeaki. Just wondering if this was because of the turnover suffered by Scott Chandler?

It appears to me that whoever the player is, no matter how talented they are, if they are not committed to winning (or at least if he sees it that way), he will get rid of them. Now, I have no problem with that approach, but will he over time overturn the whole roster? He had a private meeting with Stevie Johnson, ( is Stevie Johnson not committed to winning?) Is this a sign of things to come?

I do believe the Bills are better than last year in terms of competitiveness, but they still do need a running back, two linebackers, and a receiver. I guess time will tell. I do believe that Doug Marrone is superior to Chan Gailey in terms of attitude, and holding players accountable. He is also wonderful with the press. Your thoughts,

Tony, Ormond Beach, Fl

CB: As I said on the radio earlier this week, there are roster changes on every NFL team every year, but I foresee changes here in Buffalo that will surprise some people in the offseason. This first year, Marrone has been very thorough in making assessments of the players on this roster and whether he can win with them his way.

If he feels he cannot they will not be here long term. And let me be clear in saying what can earn a player a ticket out of here sooner rather than later goes far beyond athletic ability. Work ethic, commitment to team and professionalism are all qualities that are coveted by Marrone and his staff too.

In fact in some cases lacking in one of those three areas might lead to a player dismissal (cut or traded) even if said player has the ability to help them win.

Da’Rick Rogers should’ve served as a prime example at the beginning of the season. A ton of ability, but no professionalism or commitment to team.

If players on this roster didn’t get that message then, they may end up learning the hard way.

 

3 – Chris

Thank you for your coverage for us Bills fans!!

I have very good thoughts about Wingo and his abilities and really see him as a possible replacement for Fred Jackson in time.  Hes got the talent to be a great offsetting tandum with Spiller…Now that we will get the chance to see how he performs I have a question about the future of the franchise.  The Bills are almost rebuilt, missing a few pieces to having a very competitive team.  If Wingo performs well the rest of the season can you see maybe the Bills trading away Fred Jackson and running with Wingo.  I love Freds leadership and still believe he has a few great seasons left in him.  But his age and injuries catching up faster and faster each year so why not get something for him to bring more youth and promise to the team?

CB: I believe you’re getting ahead of yourself here. Wingo’s playing time will not be sufficient enough to make that kind of assessment, unless Spiller or Jackson sustain a season-ending injury.

I think Wingo is a player of interest to the Bills, but this is a guy they need to develop through this coming offseason to help him improve. Unseating other players is just too premature right now.

 

4 – Hi Chris,

Thanks for your hard work to keep us fans up to date with the Bills. After watching this past game against the Bucs, I noticed that not 1 deep ball was attempted, and it seems like the bills offense has had success with it in the past. Coach Marrone said they may have to “scale” things back a bit for E.J Manuel. Could that be an indication that he just may not be ready yet to play in this league? This is a very young Football team and I was wondering if its just as simple as these Rookies and second year players having to “learn” how to win in the NFL?

Thanks Again, Eileen in Ontario

CB: I think the worst thing that happened to rookie QBs in the NFL was the rapid success of Andrew Luck, RG III and Russell Wilson. Due to the fact that three rookies succeeded in their first year as starters, it created the false premise that rookies QBs on the whole can succeed right away.

There are instances where that can happen, but more often than not it doesn’t. EJ Manuel has started just 10 games. In the words of Coach Marrone he has a lot to learn.

When he talked about scaling things back it was because since the second Jets game they have been increasing the amount of things on his plate to see how he would handle it. He didn’t handle it well in Tampa, so now they will cut back and simplify.

It’s the typical approach with a rookie QB. See how much they can handle and if it’s too much cut back.

 

5 – Chris,

I realize you want to create a winning culture with a young team with a new coaching staff but it’s clear this is not the team that can produce winning football. So I’m curious on what your outlook for the last three games is, I’ve been ready to settle for draft picks since the Pittsburgh game but many people may oppose tanking the rest of the year for picks.

Also I was wondering how you’d grade EJs performance this year, I personally like his attitude and demeanor  but he looks like a new born baby when he plays within the pocket it’s just painfully awkward to watch. He also just looks odd when he throws, consistently putting it over the heads of targets or in the dirt, I’m not sure why but do you think this is correctable through footwork?

Last question is about the draft we obviously need  a linebacker, guard and maybe another tackle but a big wideout seems to be a popular pick but where do they fit into our receiver room, seems that Stevie, TJ, and Robert are fixtures as the top three while we struggle to work in Goodwin. So who gets bumped out probably Marcus Easley but do we really draft a “big wideout” to be our fifth or sixth wideout? Or do you anticipate more fluctuation at this position in the offseason? As always keep up the great work covering our Buffalo Bills, and I look forward to your responses.

Will

CB: You have to win the remaining games as I see it. You’re never going to change the losing culture unless you win. If you can win these last three it helps in that effort.

EJ has had his ups and downs this season like any rookie quarterback. I think he has what it takes, but it’s going to take some time for him to put it all together. We all need to remember he’s made 10 starts.

As for team needs I agree with your linebacker and offensive line adds as well as a big receiver. I also think a big back would be prudent to groom as an eventual replacement for Fred Jackson.

Kyle honored by MMQB

Posted by Chris Brown on December 5, 2013 – 5:22 pm

The Monday Morning Quarterback site has a weekly honor for the Interior Rusher of the Week. This week’s recipient was Bills DT Kyle Williams.

MMQB’s Greg Bedard wrote the following about Williams.

Kyle Williams

Williams has been in the top 10 of our interior rushers the entire season (now sixth, right behind Ndamukong Suh of the Lions), and we discussed his pass-rush skills from the three technique when he was the unsung interior rusher in Week 9.

Against the porous Falcons offensive line, Williams had his best performance of the season with 4.75 Pressure Points: one solo sack, one sack assist, four hurries and two quarterback hits. Williams is a big reason the Bills have risen all the way to third, behind the Texans and Seahawks, in team pressure for the season.

Kyle: These losses hurt us just like the fans

Posted by Chris Brown on December 2, 2013 – 12:18 pm

Bills captain Kyle Williams was still stewing in Buffalo’s locker room just minutes after their gut wrenching loss to Atlanta in overtime. He knows there have been enough of those kinds of losses over the years where it becomes an easy joke for those on the outside. Williams wanted everyone to know for the players there’s nothing funny about it.

“It’s easy to be in the catbird seat and look down on it and say ‘Same old (expletive),’ or whatever it may be, but I feel bad for the guys because of all the work that goes into it,” Williams said. “What guys play through and all the hours they put in. And a lot of times games like this become a punch line like it’s funny and it’s not to us. It’s not. It’s frustrating, but I believe with everything in me that I’m going to do the right things and I’m going to play as hard as I can and on the back end of this for me it’s going to that much better.”

Kyle Williams active for today’s game

Posted by Chris Brown on December 1, 2013 – 2:42 pm

Bills DT Kyle Williams entered today’s game against Atlanta as questionable, but he’s active for today’s game and is expected to start. Here now are the inactives for the Bills for today’s game against the Falcons.

QB Jeff Tuel
RB Ronnie Wingo
CB Brandon Smith
LB Ty Powell
G J.J. Unga
G Antoine McClain
TE Chris Gragg

I would not read anything into the sight of Gragg on the inactive list. With all of their receivers healthy, I think it is what ultimately moved Gragg to the inactive list this week.

Kyle’s back acts up, questionable for Sunday

Posted by Chris Brown on November 29, 2013 – 12:05 pm

Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams was a surprise non-participant at practice Friday due to a flare up with his lower back this morning. As a result head coach Doug Marrone has listed him as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Falcons in Toronto.

“Kyle Williams will be questionable for the game,” said Marrone. “He’s 50-50. It just popped up, lower back. Those things are tough. I’ve been through those things before. I had a player when I was in New York, during walk through just went down to get in his stance and his back locked up. When you talk about backs and hamstrings and things you really don’t know.”

Williams said it happened when he went to get out of bed in the morning.

“It was fun this morning. I think I woke everybody up,” Williams quipped. “I guess I slept on it wrong and when I stepped to get out of bed it cinched up on me.”

Having never had a back spasm before, it’s new territory for Williams. Despite playing hurt in the past, his lack of familiarity with this kind of muscle issue left him cautiously optimistic that he’d be able to play Sunday.

“We’ve got today and tomorrow and we’ll treat it and get ready for Sunday,” said Williams. “We’ll see when we get to Sunday. I don’t know how to gauge it right now. We’re working on it and I plan on playing, but at the same time if you can’t you’re only going to hurt everybody else. If you can, you can. If you can’t, you can’t. We’ve got plenty of time, we’re going to work on it and be aggressive and see how it goes.”

Best tandem since ‘The Package’?

Posted by Chris Brown on November 27, 2013 – 9:52 am

As we profiled on Buffalobills.com today Kyle Williams and Marcell Dareus are a pretty impressive interior tandem. Are they the best interior duo since ‘The Package?’

For those Bills fans that don’t remember, the duo dubbed ‘The Package’ was Ted Washington and Pat Williams. Buffalo was a strict 3-4 front back in the late 90’s and early in his career, Pat Williams was rotated in as a run down defender, while Washington was the full-time two-gap nose tackle. Washington and Williams lined up alongside one another appeared to clog up all three of the front side gaps at times. They were instrumental in leading the Bills 1999 defense to the number one defensive ranking that season.

The two were the main reason why that ’99 defense still ranks number one in team history for fewest rushing yards allowed in a 16-game season. Buffalo’s ’99 defense allowed just 1,370 rushing yards that season. For perspective, Buffalo’s defense this year has allowed 1,307 rushing yards in 11 games.

Washington and Williams were also part of the 1997 defense that finished in the top five in team history in sacks with 46. That appears to be something Kyle Williams and Marcell Dareus can help to eclipse this season to move into the top 5 themselves.

Pat Williams was also part of another formidable interior duo for two seasons with free agent signee Sam Adams from 2003-2004. The 2004 unit finished second in the league in total defense.

Bills DT sacks don’t surprise Marrone

Posted by Chris Brown on November 27, 2013 – 8:11 am

As we profiled on Buffalobills.com today, the combination of Kyle Williams and Marcell Dareus has been extremely productive this season. They currently stand second and fourth on the team in sacks. Williams has seven and Dareus has five. But head coach Doug Marrone is not surprised by their pass rush success, particularly that of Williams.

I think years ago when the majority of the football was run to pass ratio, I re starting to see to change a little bit over the past four or five years to a little bit more pass,” Marrone said. “I always thought schematically you can do things to help yourself with those edge rushers, but inside is tougher.

“Depending on what you’re going to do, the center is going to go one way or the other, but that one guard is going to be put one on one quite a bit. I think a lot of it is matchups, but again you have to remember that Kyle Williams is
probably one of the best if not one of the better players at his position in the league right now. He’s playing at an extremely high level.”

Value of healthy roster not lost on Bills

Posted by Chris Brown on November 25, 2013 – 5:44 pm

They know being healthy doesn’t guarantee anything, but heading into the last month of the season with a roster that has just about all its weapons on offense and defense ready to roll is providing the Bills with a sense of optimism entering the home stretch of the season.

“Everybody’s extremely optimistic to get everybody out there 100-percent or as close to it as possible,” said Fred Jackson. “It will be interesting to see, something we’ve been excited about all offseason and all this season.  To get everybody out there and get everybody on the same page is something we’re looking forward to.”

“It’s good to have everybody back healthy going into the homestretch of the season,” said Kyle Williams. “In the last month of the year, it could be a big month for us and it’s good to have all hands on deck.”

Other Bills in Pro Bowl running

Posted by Chris Brown on November 20, 2013 – 4:04 pm

With the news coming down that Mario Williams and Kiko Alonso are the leading vote getters among fans at their respective positions for the 2014 Pro Bowl, here are some of the other Bills who are in the hunt at their positions for fan votes.

DT Marcell Dareus – 3rd
DT Kyle Williams – 5th
SS Aaron Williams – 6th
K Dan Carpenter – 10th
ST Marcus Easley – 10th

Bills head coach Doug Marrone said just last week that if the team had a better won-loss record that Marcus Easley would have an excellent chance of being a Pro Bowl special teams player with the success he’s had in coverage.
