We all know how Fitz is a risk taker and that is what originally endeared him to many of us after suffering through Capt. Checkdown. Unfortunately, we saw the ugly side of that aggressiveness in the second half of last season. Does the addition of Mario Williams change any of that?
A few of my thoughts after the jump...
I remember thinking to myself after the Oakland game that we got lucky with a few of his dangerous throws that should have been picks, both of them in the end-zone. I wrote those concerns off since he had to try and score every time we got the ball since the defense was unable to even slow Oakland down.
As the season wore on it appeared to me that he was forcing the ball more and more. I figured he thought he had to score at least 30 points for us to win most games once the defense started to really struggle and stopped getting turnovers. Obviously the results of that extra aggressive mentality were pretty awful for him and the team as his turnovers skyrocketed.
So my question is; does a better defense with the addition of Mario Williams improve Fitz's decision making by reducing the pressure on him? I don't think he will ever get to the point of Edwards like conservatism, but if he becomes more cautious with the ball is that a good thing for his game?
What do you think fellow (ecstatic) Bills fans?
