Dave Wannstedt Not Worried About Buffalo Bills Pass Rush

The Buffalo Bills have given up plenty of big plays defensively through two pre-season games, and while coordinator Dave Wannstedt admits that the trend is "a little bit disturbing," he insists he's not worried about one major part of the defense: its revamped pass rush.

"Out of the first five plays (against the Minnesota Vikings), we had two sacks and one scramble," Wannstedt told reporters after practice on Tuesday. "So we are going to rush the passer well."

The team's new defensive end duo of Mario Williams and Mark Anderson has been pretty quiet this pre-season, but defensive tackles Kyle Williams and Marcell Dareus have been all over the place. Each tackle recorded one of the two sacks that Wannstedt referenced on the Vikings' first drive, and both have been disruptive in brief appearances. Kyle, in particular, has looked very strong this summer.

Sure, it's a concern that the defense is giving up big plays - but as we all should realize having watched this team so closely over the years, preventing big plays is far easier to do than fix a broken pass rush. The Bills appear to have finally done the latter.
