Mario Williams Says ‘It Was Great’ Getting Booed by Texans Fans in Return to Houston

Mario Williams was a fan favorite during his six years in Houston. To say he has fallen out of favor would be an understatement.

Williams, now a member of the Buffalo Bills, was booed in his return to Houston on Sunday. One could say it was salt on the wound, as the Texans rolled to a 21-9 victory, but Williams was hardly concerned about the less-than-welcoming ovation.

“It was great,” Williams said after the game. “The biggest thing for me is if you go out and make a play and get booed, I know I’m in your heart. That’s the most important thing. If it’d been quiet, then I would’ve felt something different. I know you’re thinking about me.”

Williams, of course, established himself as one of the NFL’s premier pass rushers during his time in a Texans uniform, so it’s safe to assume Houston fans appreciate his production to a certain extent. However, Williams opted to chase the green during the offseason, and that apparently has some fans in the Lone Star State a little hot under the collar.

The Texans improved to 7-1 with Sunday’s victory, and the Bills are still the Bills. So while Williams is a much richer man nowadays, it’s evident the Texans are doing OK without Super Mario.
