Im just jokin around- and I never ever strike first with berating others. That said, many on here think that it is Ok to do that so I stick up for myself. If people cant handle that, oh well, they should think before they engage in that kind of behavior. The best thing about this place, everyone is an expert and when they dont agree with you they point out as such, thump their war chest (which 99 percent have never been to war and im willing to bet 75 percent have never played organized football) and are quick to start hammering away. At times, it is ridiculous.

Back to my original post- when we have a supposed "stud DT", at his level of pay and draft position, many expect him to at least make game changing plays but that didnt happen last Sunday. Sure, he ate space and took on double blocks- the majority in this league playing DT do. I really want to see this guy make plays, unfortunately his work ethic, immaturity, and smug attitude really gets in the way of what he really could be.

 

And he didn't even really eat space or get doubled all that much, either.  Looked like he was singled 2/3 of the time.  And notably, on McCown's QB sneak touchdown, that was right over Dareus, who got bulldozed a good 3 yards off the line.  

 

On the other hand, the Jets didn't run the ball at him either.  So it's not like he was useless.  But he sure as hell didn't play like an elite player you'd expect to be anchoring the line, either.

Without really being in the stands with binoculars, It's hard to make a fare assessment of Marcells play...  From television, I know the run was stuffed and I assume He did contribute to that... As far as the pass rush, I did see Jerry Hughes handled using double teams on passing situations...

I think it's reasonable that coming back from an injury had something to do with his snap count.

Haha. Fact, no one wanted the Bills to re-sign Dareus when he was an all pro who was on a similar sack pace as Warren Sapp.

I didnt want him re signed because he showed no signs of commitment long term to do the right thing. I thought it was irresponsible without truly making him earn it. I dont care if he isnt a poster boy, but tone it down a tone and act like the average ball player.

I'd love to see a post of you saying that after he looked like one of the best DTs in the NFL in 2014.

Well unfortunately I wasnt a member of this board and was on a deployment with no internet access so that isnt going to happen.

I was JK. The great thing about being a poster or media member is you can constantly change your opinion on things.

Dareus had/ has HOF potential.

Thank you for your service. But the vast majority of Bills fans would have rioted if they let him walk in FA.

I definitely wanted him re-signed... and I still want him here.

I'll actually be patient on this issue.

It seems McDermott is kicking him in the pants and he has NEVER had that here in Buffalo.

McDermott is being patient too, but he will give Dareus the season to shape up. If not, the Bills can withstand the cap hit in 2018, not 2017.

Smart move by McDermott.

I think we all want him here if he can be the impact player we are paying him to be, if not it isnt smart to keep him at the price the Bills are paying him.

Your perspective is pretty spot on - thanks for your service. I served in the Marines for 21 years and my last 6-7 years I was in the executive/command side of things so I got to learn how everything tied together. My statement about thumpin their war chest was merely me pointing out that its funny to me how people act so tough behind a keyboard and the majority most likely havent done anything very strenuous in life. Anyways, this thread is really about Marcell- I hope he starts to play at a high level- my original obs was he wasnt where he should be. Hey, its just 1 game and a long season- cheerz!

No problem, thank you for your service as well! I wish that I did 20+ years, but life had a different path for me. Dareus will have his moments to shine this season, but last game he was asked to be a wall rather than a rusher. More like a decoy on the front to allow Kyle and others to make plays. I'm sure he will have a similar role next week as well.
