Between now and whenever the 2011 NFL season actually begins, you can expect at least 1 million – and more likely 2 or even 3 million – stories about rookies intimating that they have a chip on their shoulder and about how they have something to prove and yada yda yada because so many teams passed on them in the draft.
M. Dareus (US Presswire)
Normally, it’s best to treat these stories the same way you might treat a panhandler in Times Square: pretend not hear. But we’ll make an exception for Marcell Dareus, only because he was drafted so high that when he gripes about teams that passed on him, he can’t help but get specific.

That’s what the No. 3 overall pick did in a recent appearance on Michael Irvin’s radio show on WQAM in Miami. Irvin asked Dareus if he should have been the first overall pick.

Dareus replied “yes” with no hesitation. Then he elaborated. “If I ever get a chance to play Carolina I’m going to make them pay for passing up on me,” he said. “Denver I’ll get a chance to play them in the regular season (this year) and I’m going to make it hell for them every time I play against them.”

That wasn’t all.

“I worked my butt off to the point where I’m not going to give you a reason not to pick me,” he said. “You’re not going to look at me and be like, ‘Well he’s good, but…” That ‘but’ word is never going to come up when you mention my name. My sole focus was for me not to give you a reason to not pick me and you still don’t? Okay, I understand you have needs somewhere else, but if you need somebody to control your front and be a commander across the front and not let anything happen? I work my butt off to do that, and you pass me up still? Okay, I’ve got something for you.”

So, in conclusion, Marcell Dareus has confirmed that he intends to play hard against the Broncos this year and against the Panthers in 2013.

Since most posters on this board seem to be new at following NFL football, heres a fact for you.  NFL players have to be confident to be succesful.  I would be excited if I was a Bills fan that this kid has some confidence coming in.

Marcell Dareus should heed this simple advice when entering the NFL as a rookie.
Be seen, and not heard.
Let your playing speak for you kid. If your play is as good as (self) advertised, you'll make your point where it matters most,
on the field.

That's rich, Cam and Tebow running this kid over?  Did no one see when Alabama played Auburn and Dareus immediately got into the backfield, broke down, shadowed Newton and sacked him for a loss? Newton couldn't go anywhere.  And he's more athletic than Tebow.  I love when "football fans" prove their ignorance on these boards.  Dareus alongside Kyle Williams is a hell of an interior duo.

When are the Bills going to be good - this dunce is going to eat all of his words...The Bills are terrible. I had no reason to watch a Bills game ever, but now I am going to be watching this guy get run over in every game he plays.  I can't wait! lol

I would think a Lions fan might be a bit careful about calling other teams terrible!

Funny he should call out the teams with two huge running quarterbacks who are going to run right over his arrogant arse.  Advantage Tebow and Cam.
