Week 6: Adrian Wilson is This Week’s Public Enemy #1
In week six of the NFL regular season, the Buffalo Bills stay west and take on the Arizona Cardinals at University of Phoenix Stadium in Tempe, Arizona.In addition, I am also starting a new segment called Public Enemy # 1, it will be about the number one guy on defense the Bills have to contain no matter what in the hopes of success for the offense. This week’s Public Enemy #1 is strong safety Adrian Wilson.
Adrian Wilson is a 6′ 3″ 230 lb. strong safety who plays and hits like a linebacker due to his sheer size and speed combination. Four years ago, against the Bills, he knocked Trent Edwards out of the game and his career never really recovered with the exception of one game two weeks later. Granted the hit was illegal because it was helmet to helmet and he was fined $25,000 for the hit but the damage was done. Here is the clip to show you what he did in case you never saw, or blocked it out or something else, http://youtu.be/yjpANEVexhY
Adrian is very versatile, and despite most of the time he stays as a strong safety, but he has been know to sneak up and act like he’s the fifth linebacker when they run their 3-4 defense and he can help shut down the run. He also holds the record for most sacks by a defensive back in a season with eight. He also has forced the most fumbles in Arizona Cardinals history with fifteen.
There is some good news Bills fans, he is now 31 and has slowed down a little bit, but he still is still considered dangerous and must be accounted for at all times.
I also was considering Patrick Peterson for my inaugural “Public Enemy #1″ but I went with a guy that’s known to Buffalo Bills fans for causing heartbreak and anger in the past.
Thanks again for reading! I want to know what you think, I encourage discussion so either leave me comment on here or hit me up on twitter @TheProfessorSD! Have a great day.
