Bills? Kyle Williams: ?We expect more out of? Dareus

It’s déjà vu for Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams.

Not even a week and a half after saying how he’s spoken with Marcell Dareus about making smarter decisions and how he believes his teammate is a good person, Williams once again discussed him for yet another incident off the field. It’s Dareus’ second run-in with the law over the course of the past month and has left his partner at defensive tackle telling him the same things yet again.

“Obviously he's had a string of bad decisions. We as players, teammates and friends, we expect more out of him because we need him to play football for us,” Williams said. “Hopefully these things are kind of a silver lining for him. But, I don't think there's any disguising the fact that he has to be accountable to his team and coaches and our organization for the decisions he makes.”

Just like last time, after the 24-year old Dareus was arrested in Alabama on felony counts of possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia, Williams had some words with his younger teammate. The message was pretty clear.

“He knows. Everybody knows when you make a good decision or a bad decision -- especially when it's that drastic -- you know,” he said in reference to the most recent incident in Hamburg, NY.  “Hopefully the foresight comes in, it's like, 'this probably isn't a good idea, maybe I shouldn't do it.' And that's what I'm trying to get across.”

There’s little doubt that this is the overwhelming message from most of Dareus’ teammates and coaches. Now it’s on him to decide if this month will be the anomaly, or if it’s the start of a slippery slope. As long as he’s got Williams and head coach Doug Marrone, they’ll continue to try and hammer the same message into his mind.

Yeah...
We do too.

I wonder when....
...the Buffalo sports media is going to criticize their favorite Fred Jackson for drag racing? That video of Fred doing the exact same thing as Darius seems to have slipped by Sullivan and the WGR crew who always line up to pile on other players.

Sad it has to be this way
Doesn't anyone else think it is really sad that the NFL has pretty much become a babysitting league? There are MEN entering the league and yet teammates and head coaches, and even sometimes people that are hired for the purpose of doing such, have to BABYSIT and raise these men to stop making such stupid mistakes....what is wrong with our society these days that parents are not teaching these MEN how to decide right from wrong, good from bad? Pathetic that coaches and players have to raise these GROWN MEN...

WGR Fan Poll Today Would I Help Pay To Fund A Stadium?
No....I'd drive one of the rigs fully loaded for free to help a move and take a bonus to beat a time given to get to Toronto. The only thing I'd need is a driver to drive a 1979 Trans Am. (Dareus?) You get my drift. BRING ON THE MOVING VANS!!!

Amazes me!
How some people and players have no common sense amazes me. They have everything in the world and then then put this in jeopardy by being stupid. Plus the fact they are hurting the organization that pays them. Dareus please wake up and be a good person and teammate by making better decisions in your life.

Great
That's great and all... but sometimes you just can't fix stupid.

Baby Sitter Wanted?
will the Bills hire a sitter for Baby Boy Dareus? He is not going to change till he gets a punishment that scares the heck out of him-maybe prison time would be a wakeup call? We all make mistakes but these professional athletes have to understand a lot more comes with the tons of money thrown at them- like a responsibility to fellow players and team owners along with the fans ESPECIALLY the younger fans

Dog just slow down.
I mean we all have made some pretty dumb moves in our lives. We don't want to be judging him for his mistakes. But he knows in life you will have to stand up like a man. To correct those mistakes. Hey dareus bro find you a women have a baby. and settle down. Because that women will not put up with that foolishness. My mom you to all way tell me that a women. Is a man backbone and a man is the women backbone. When ever you see a great man; You can best beleive he got a strong women behide him. Dareus i am not just talking just about you. I am also talking about myself too. Lets go ruff buff.

What would happen in the real world
I would have lost my job after the first bust. NFL needs to start banning these players from the league.

RE: What would happen in the real world
Well I guess I have to kind of agree with your first sentence, I guess. However you fail to recognize that the NFL couldn't be ANY farther than the real world. Players from the NFL get away with crime everyday because they have MONEY AND POWER. Money and power are what drives the American engine of the PRIVILEGED. If you have both, you are ABOVE THE LAW of the SORRY "REAL WORLD" we are in. So what will happen in Dareus' case is what happens to all NFL criminals, maybe a ridiculously paltry fine, and maybe a few games "vacation" and then back to the NFL and the streets of "the real world". So my advice to you is get your head out of your azz and realize that- WALMART IS "THEEEEE BIGGEST NICKLE AND DIME LOoSER FRANCHISE IN ALL OF PRO SPORTS"!!! WHO'S ELITE? WHERE'S ELITE? WHAT'S ELITE? I AM THE ELITE ONE!!! SAY MY NAME.

Back in the good old days
20 years ago none of this stuff would never have been known. The team would keep it under wraps and the press would have never let the cat out of the bag.
