I haven’t seen anybody say they’re bothered by trash talking going on during the game. It’s the fact that it usually ends after the game is over unless you want to look like an amateur who’s never been there before by saying “I got 2 sacks on you!”

I'd agree, only because his price tag will be alot higher than we think. He'll test out free agency and games like this is why someone will pay him. However, we've seen how he takes games off, plays off, and cant consistently get pressure. Someone will pay him 10/yr and will be disappointed, IMO. 


I think you’re right that he will get paid more than he’s worth to us in free agency.  Edited to add: That’s not to say that he isn’t worth a nice contract, just that he plays a premium position and I expect some team to get stupid. 


Shaq has developed into the player that I thought he’d be when he was drafted though.  He’s a very good DE.  He sets the edge and plays the run well.  He can add a few sacks too, but that’s not his forte.  The expectations from a lot of fans were for a Mario-in-his-prime kind of player.  That was never going to be Lawson.  He’s not going to be a double digit sack guy.  He can be a very nice, productive piece to a defense as long as he’s not the guy they’re relying on to consistently pressure the QB.

I enjoy some emotion. We cheer with our heart and soul why do you get turned off when a player doesn’t want to be trashed? 

 

Don’t hit him with his own helmet but you can definitely tell him some momma jokes.

Where did I say that I’m concerned? I’m saying that this isn’t how McDermott’s guys typically act. Shaq talks a lot of trash and got into a fight last year. Just play the game and shut the hell up especially after the game (and after you win)


I’m sure Sean quickly praised Shaq In the locker room for talking trash after the game

 

“Just a phenomenal effort,’’ he (McDermott) said of Lawson’s game. “He brings a lot of energy to our team during the week. He’s one of those dogs in a good way. He likes to hunt and I love having him on our team. I think he’s one of our catalysts, a guy well respected for what he brings every day.’’

Said Hughes: “He forced his will today. That’s the Shaq we know.’’

also from article:

 

“First of all, they were talking junk,’’ said Lawson after he pulled on a sweatshirt reading “Buffalo vs. Everybody.’’

“That’s my thing, I talk junk. You can’t out-junk me. I like that stuff. To start the game, I think it was No. 60 (center Connor McGovern), he goes ‘I haven’t remembered you since college.’ I said, ‘I bet I show you.’ ’’

I bet Lawson’s comeback line was a lot more colorful than that. You don’t start a war of one-liners with Rodney Dangerfield and get “I bet I show you.’’

Why do people think “process” & “culture” equates to being a choir boy?   
 

To me, it pertains to being a team guy that leaves it all on the field.  
 

To my eye, Shaq is all in on those characteristics.

Lawson’s first sack looked like a nature video.  He straight up stalked Brandon Allen like a tiger stalking a gazelle or whatever tigers eat.

 

Good to see Shaq finally taking more ownership over his career.  I’d like to see him re-upped because I don’t think he’s hit his ceiling yet - would also like to see his conditioning improve a bit.  You don’t see many edge rushers with straight up beer guts.  Spend less time at his alma mater and more time in the gym.  But he’s a high-energy player and his best attribute might be his wingspan - dude tips a lot of passes and when he doesn’t get a hand on them, he screws up the passing lanes, an underrated impact.

This isn’t a ringing endorsement as a McD process kinda guy. It’ll be interesting to see how they approach re-signing him

I Don't think it's that big of a deal. Coach will talk to him, if he hasn't already. If we don't re-sign him, this won't be the reason. Plus, someone else will scoop him up.

This^^ not impressing his boss so much with that level of behavior, frankly, doesn’t matter what was said during the game, he made himself look like an azs, jmo.

In that fight last year Fournette threw a punch at Shaq. Oh, it's on after that.

Really? In today's NFL, guys celebrate sacks with chest pounding celebrations often when down by 21 points. When you see the mic'd up segments the players are frequently talking back and forth. 

 

The only issue with Shaq's performance should be that his choreography channeled some alternate version of Irish step dancing, it was like watching a scene from  "Riverdance" with not an Irishman in sight. McDermott is likely furious or touched by the tribute. Maybe both.

I don't know man. I don't know that one year of great production after 3 years of mediocrity is worthy of what he's going to want to get paid.

What's wrong with telling a person to respect my game and my name?? A lot of the greats talk/talked smack during/after game. His smack talk didn't influence the game at all, I doubt he'll get disciplined/counciled for it

IDK, McD (allegedly) rag-dolled a reporter. He probably gave Shaq an atta boy and a junk tap.

Like I said, jmo. He acted butt hurt, which is never a good look, especially after a win. I like your sense of humor, the river dance celebration was...., well..., as the French say, I do not know what...

I think it speaks volumes about Lawson that he is one of the only holdover draft picks from the Whaley era. He put his head down and has worked hard and its starting to really pay off. Dude has really come on this year and even when he isn't getting sacks has been noticeably disruptive.

 

I hope the Bills find a way to keep him but some team might be willing to overpay for him...
