    Bills fans should start sweating the Gregg Williams gate

    Article:

    Gregg Williams Involvement in Bounty Scandal Could Spell Trouble for Bills



    "And that was all before the Washington Post reported that Williams did essentially the same thing while he was the defensive coordinator at Washington. That news, combined with the chatter around the league that bounty systems were a common practice means that there’s a decent chance that something like that was going on when Gregg Williams was the head coach of the Bills."

    "With that in mind, there’s a few ways Buffalo could get roped into this mess. The NFL is not effing around with this, as evidenced by the time and money spent on a 3 year investigation yielding a 18,000 document report. Note: not word, document. That’s an absurd level of depth that shows that the NFL is not going to let anyone off the hook because they forgot what time Kinkos closes. "

    "And if it does turn out that Williams installed a similar system in Buffalo, it will be the 3rd such story and presumably with much less evidence available considering Williams was last coaching in Buffalo over a decade ago."

    The conclusion is that Greg Williams might have used bounties for years to motivate his players. His defenses were pretty good despite his motivational practices. Buffalo might get roped in, but I doubt the league will kick a lowly Buffalo while it is down.
    I think any discipline on the agenda will affect New Orleans owner financially to some extent, and Greg Williams to a greater extent...possibly a long suspension or worse. The head coach of New Orleans will feel the pain too, probably some heavy fines.

    Don't you have to do something significant to be considered on an "era" level?

    Williams probably did it when he was with the Bills, though I highly doubt the Bills organization has anything to worry about. Williams himself is in big trouble and it will have an impact on the Saints and Rams. Saints will receive heavy sanctions and the Rams might be scrambling to find a new DC.

    Had we hired Fisher this would have been another Miami mess at this point. Let's hope the luck is turning for Miami finally, first the coin flip and now they dodged this bullet. Now let's hope our third good thing comes in a QB!
