Dareus has been the 3rd best player on the defense the past 5 weeks. Good to see him turning his season around. Guy has been through a lot.
ibhappy will enjoy reading this...about as much as he would enjoy rolling around in shards of broken glass, then taking a bath in Tabasco sauce. I'll name the certain poster. Not a call out. Seriously, anyone that thinks Dareus is a bust is a joke. Other atheletes may have had tragedies happen, and then play lights out the next game, but this KID has been dealing with tragedies his entire life. I read the prospect articles CB posted before the 2011 draft, and none hit me harder than the one about Dareus. I instantly was praying the Broncos would pass on him. Miller may be racking up sacks, but I'm still thrilled to have Marcel in Buffalo. I need a jersey for next Sunday's game, and I'm hoping the shop at the flea market still has that #99 blue.
Ib is avoiding any positive Dareus articles that totally disprove anything he has tried to protest about.
Surprised he isn't in front of OBD with a cut Dareus sign and billboards all over Buffalo saying "Did you know Dareus business partner didn't know his brother of another name? He must be a bust!"
"I don't like the Dolphins, I don't like the Jets, I don't like the m- f- Patriots! I don't like the Browns 'cuz they start with a B! Let's go Bills Ba-Ba-Ba-Ba Bills, Let's go Bills!" -If you hear this being cheered at Bills games... I am likely the one you are hearing!
No one circles the wagons like the Buffalo Bills.
Good read. I knew the guy wasn't playing well because of his brother's death.
I can tell you by personal experience that is hard to lose someone. I lost my sister 14 years ago and it was hard to do anything at the time your heart aches, you don't have the energy or emotion to do anything and you just want to lay down and stay away from anyone. There isn't a single day that passes by that I don't remember her and I always will also the pain will never go away I wish I could see her grow up, getting married, having kids and spend time with her.
One of the biggest lessons I learned from that is to live your life to the fullest.
For Dareus it was probably 1,000,000 times worst than me because you don't want to be reminded of the tragedy constantly and you also have to deal with fans that sometimes are not very nice towards players.
Bills fan since the 90'S it all begin with tecmo super bowl...
hes been playing a lot better the past few weeks
steve johnson is our future star
Fred jackson is my adopted player this year!!
should change my username but oh well.
he has had all of this tragedy and hardship in his life at such a young age... and STILL has overcome .. to be an elite defensive player on one of the best College Football Schools in the country, and then to be rated and drafted into the NFL in the top 5. Isn't that a proven track record of being able to overcome and rise up?
So many people cite Patrick Peterson... If you actually watch his play instead of conforming to with joe blow football analyst, his corner play this year has been average. Not to mention 3 fumbles on the year with VERY limited touches (kickoffs and punt returns)
"Yeah I'm pissed. I'm gunna use that energy. I'm gunna go home, I'm not gunna talk to anybody, ya know... I'm just gunna shut it down. I'm gunna be by myself.
I'm not gunna pet my dog.
I'm gunna get fired up. I'm gunna come to work tomorrow, I'm gunna watch the film. Be a pro. I'm gunna be a man. We're gunna work, and get ready to go."
After reading some of the posts in this thread, is it possible to declare some of the posters "busts "?
Keep the faith and don't forget to flush .
....whether some of you want to admit it or not Marcel has suffered greatly this year and for him to do what he's done this season is amazing....he will bounce back mentally next season and be the monster we drafted.....

When my father died I had three days leave and it was back to work. You have an obligation to your employer. You suck it up and do what you have to do.
