Buffalo Bills nose tackle once again did not practice on Thursday due to a twisted ankle that he suffered during Wednesday’s practice.
Williams absence this Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens would be a good thing.
There are several reasons for it. First, Williams is not good against double teams, so he is out of place at the nose tackle position. Secondly, they drafted this past April Torell Troup to be the Bills nose tackle of the future. Last, the run defense has actually got worst this year as last year the Bills were allowing on average 156 yards rushing in 2009 while in 2010 they are now allowing 182 yards rushing per a game.
Why do you think that former defensive coordinator Perry Fewell and former head coach Dick Jauron switched him from the nose tackle position to the three technique defensive tackle of a 4-3.
In the end, the faster they get Williams out of the starting lineup the better they will be.
In a earlier article I wrote a couple of days ago I mentioned that there were other ways to deliver big hits without going to the head of a defenseless offensive player.
Well here is the evidence of what I was saying.
According to Pro Football Talk, the National Football League has released a video that clearly displays that there are other ways to deliver a big hit without ever going to the head of an offensive football player. You can see the video right here.
I mentioned that a good form tackle to the gut would do just as good of a job. However, in this video an even better example is shown with defenders delivering big hits not to the head, but to the chest of offensive players. Of course these hits get the job done cause they are just as hard and devastating as the ones to the head.
Could a offensive player still suffer a concussion?
Yes, they could from smacking their head on the ground. However, the chances of that happening are not as great as getting hit in the head by a defender.
ESPN’s John Clayton on WGR 550 Mike Schopp and the Bulldog during his weekly radio interview during football season, made a great point that there is a little hypocrisy that players want to maim and injure a guy that could affect him the rest of his life, but at the same time are complaining that an 18 game season will result in more injuries.
In the end, all this has shown is that NFL players are spoiled little brats and only care about themselves.
