Everyone around here absolutely loves Kyle Williams; including myself, but his injury is and has been a blessing in disguise. Marcell Dareus was able to transition to where he belongs right above the Centre and boy did he not disappoint. See there are two sides to every story but in this instance if Kyle Williams doesn't get hurt Marcell never gets the opportunityto be a NT, hes stuck at end.
Kyles injury creates opportunities for everyone, not just Marcell, it allows Alex Carrington to play LE instead of RE trapped behind Dwan Edwards, it allows Dwan to be more of a penetrator (Kyles specialty) it allows Marcell to do what he does best collapse the pocket not rush from the outside.
Marcell being in the middle is kind of like a domino effect. Arthur Moats is a speed rusher of the edge so he forces the QB to step up into the pocket but Marcell is collapsing the pocket with great push on the Centre which flushes the QB to the side but Alex Carrington is a better edge rusher at End then he is at OLB and like I mentioned above it allows Dwan Edwards to focus more on penetrating aside from containing thus = 9 sacks.
I know alot for the 9 sacks can be accredited to a porous Redskins OL but I really think Marcell being at his natural position of NT allows the Bills to scheme differently. Kyle is unique in the fact he is a pure pentrator at DT, he's not a run stuffer ala Vince Wilfork and he's not a speed rusher ala Jay Ratcliff, he's a pentrator that forces teams to double team him which is really where his true value is, but hes not a pocket collapser either like Marcell is. With Kyle in the game it forces team to run away from him because he does a great job of getting through the line (not pushing it back) and forcing the other teams hand, where Marcell pushes the line back and makes the team run alot outside which allows our OLB's to make plays.
Kyle is an amazing talent do not get me wrong, but his style of penetrating isn't really helping this Bills team generate a pass rush, teams are simpling double teaming him and we are not using Marcell properly and we are using him on the outside instead of the inside, I do not think it is a fluke that the first game Marcell plays a strict NT he gets 2.5 sacks. I know, I saw Kellen Heard getting pressure as well and like I said the Redkins OL isn't exactly blowing any ones mind by how well they are playing but Marcell belongs inside, and he showed it Sunday.
