View Full Version : Manny Lawson, the "other" rookie DE from NC St, outproducing Mario

Lawson already has had 2 sacks, along with 9 tackles while playing for the
49ers. I think Mario has maybe 5 or 6 tackles with zippo sacks as we all know
all too well. You may say that Lawson's NFL team, the 49ers, has had an easier schedule with the Cardinals & Rams than the openers the Texans have had to contend with in Philly & Indy.
But here's something to consider, Lawson is playing as an OLB in a 3-4 at
San Fran. As a downlineman (opposite Mario) in NC States 4-3, he's fighting a far steeper learning curve than Mario has to negotiate here in Houston.
This guy was a first rounder himself, and I had seen reports before the Draft where some said that he was the "best" DLineman at NC State, not Mario.

There isn't one, its pointless. That or I guess his point is to say that we should have drafted Lawson instead. :rolleyes:

Mario has really got to step it up..he is stuck on blocks..he has only put his hands on a QB about 7 times out of 70+ plays...I am really hoping he plays well this seaon. With the right technique and the right DL coach he could be a real force. As for Lawson being the best at NCst, heard it right..he was the force that set up everything Mario did....just check out old clips of NCst.

doesn't hurt that he's on a team that has 6 sacks over the last two games....

Bryant Young, 9 tackles, 2 sacks......
Marques Douglas... 7 tackles 1 sack......
Brandon Moore, 6 tackles, 1 sack.....

He looks just like what we, and every other NFL team thought he was going to be. A great addition to a talented team.

Mario is supposed to be the Cornerstone that Bryant Young & Douglas is on that team, that allows less talented players like Manny to have big games....

I tire of all the Reggie Bush statistics at NOLA in comparison to what Mario has (or hasn't done) here in Houston. Apples and Oranges.
But as most of you know, an OLB in a 3-4 is comparable in many ways to a DE in the 4-3. There certainly are differences, but there's similarities too. And one similarity is that each is the edge rusher(s) in the 2 systems.
And it seemed like it would be relavant, maybe even instructive to consider the statistics/production of the these 2 rookies who played the same position at the same time at the same college.

What does one players stats have to do with how good or bad another player is??? I don't care if they played right next to eachother...Stats don't determine a players talent...That would mean Meco is a better MLB than Ray Lewis, Zach Thomas...I don't even have to name anymore...That would mean D.Carr is darn near the best QB in the leauge.....Lets talk football...If you want to talk numbers save it for an accountant...

I watched my first HoustonTexans game at Reliant on openingday. I was syked about this season, just like many fans. a big part of that was Kubiak, and a big part of that was Mario.

At the end of the game, I was like...... hmpf......

Then I've got a 1.5 hour drive home, so I'm listening to 610,and all these guys talking about how Mario Sucked. The Host was like, "don't give me this he was doubled crap, he wasn't doubled"

So by the time I got home, I was furious, and disappointed in Mario.

Then I broke out my Tivo the following Monday.

I missed the first Monday Night football game, because I was rewatching that game....

& you're right, Mario is a beast..... his speed, is all that...... his power is the bag of chips....

Now, if Kubiak can harness all that, and focus it on the QB, there's no doubt that he will be everything we think he might be.

I only wish we had a Strahan, or a Reggie White, Bruce Smith kinda guy to mentor him..... heck, I'd take Joe Johnson, or JohnRandle... Kevin Carter....

I mean....... we've got Kalu??

Agree lawson is talented but he is playing linebacker and is really no different than the 2 guys we already have in Babin and PEEK who played OLB last season. We will see who the better and more versatile player is in about 2 seasons.

Lawson doesn't get enough credit for Mario's success. I wonder how good Mario would have been without the huge mismatches Lawson created every week.

Imagine having two NFL quality players (first round quality) on the same defense playing against the likes of Wake Forest. It must have been like taking candy from a baby.

Actually three NFL first rounders. John McFargo,DT at NC State, was taken at
26 overall by the Bills in the 2006 college Draft. Makes it dicey to accurately
determine who may have been carrying who, who was really the stud(s) in that DLine NC State had last Fall ?
Everyone is going nuts about what a specimen Mario is, sorta like at the Indy combine. But where's the production ?

Well actually OLB's in the 3-4 don't put up a lot of tackles anyway. They usually just force the run inside and the ILB's get the tackles. Look around the league, you'll see they don't record many tackles. For example, one of the best 3-4 OLB's Shawne Merrimen only recorded 57, and another great Joey Porter only put up 56 tackles.

Anyway, Lawson and Williams were both AWESOME prospects coming of college and i really am suprised Lawson fell all the way to #22, which i think was a steal. Another thing i want to add, Lawson and Williams both bring different things to the table and were no doubt 1st round talent. But if you want to talk about someone who really benefited from another, it is John McCargo IMO. I think he just got into the 1st round by having played alongside the best DE's in the nation.

BTW, just wanted to add he had a really nice TFL on Steven Jackson as well.

Thanks for catching that, i didn't notice i wrote that instead of Joey.

As for Merrimen, still it doesn't really matter he didn't start. LB's in the 3-4 rotate heavily so even if you aren't a starter you still see plenty of time on the field.

MLBs/ILBs drop into coverage too. Besides, when OLBs drop into coverage they are usually the underneath guy so a lot of times whoever is over the top (usually a CB or S) will get the tackle.

Thats true...If you aren't watching both players then you can't really come to a conclusion based on stats.....And besides that...Mario and
Manny don't play the same position and aren't even similar type players...Manny may be a good player, but he doesn't have the upside and shut down potential that Mario has...If Mario ever figures it out he's capable of shutting down his side of the field....

It's actually Kali, but that's besides the point. Hali is a different type of player than Mario. Hali is more of a speed rusher type like a Jason Taylor.

It's funny to me how everyone is downing Marios play and that he only has 1.5 sacks. But look at the teams we've played so far and the lines he's had to go up against. Also pepole don't take into consideration how many times he's made a RB change direction or strung a play out so someone else can make the play. True he's gottn blown up a time or two but he's a rookie. He's jus earning his stripes. Jus wait until next year, this kid is gonna be monster.

Just as the Admn is modifying its reasons for invading Iraq after the fact, the Texans are modifying their reasons for drafting Mario after the Draft.
Origionally, Kubiak and the owner said they wanted an edge rusher to put presser on Manning and other opposing QBs, and quite frankly the Chiefs DE
is more like the fast twitch Jason Taylor. Lately, they don't say much about
Mario as an edge rusher.

well when you think about it the chiefs drafted some one later in the draft who is producing the same number of sacks as the number1 overall pick....heck even that seahawk DE is producing more and what he was a 2nd round - 3rd round pick?????

Just as the Admn is modifying its reasons for invading Iraq after the fact, the Texans are modifying their reasons for drafting Mario after the Draft.
Origionally, Kubiak and the owner said they wanted an edge rusher to put presser on Manning and other opposing QBs, and quite frankly the Chiefs DE
is more like the fast twitch Jason Taylor. Lately, they don't say much about
Mario as an edge rusher.

so whats your point...

who did you want us to draft, a DE that you feel was overrated or a RB that is overrated...so far? (the most famous punt return in the history of the NFL)

People are comming to conclusions on who will be the best player way too soon.

Mario could go on to be a hall of famer or a Bust
Bush could go on to be a hall of famer or a Bust that just makes a special teams play every now and then
Lawson could go on to be a hall of famer or a Bust
any player taken in the draft could go on to be a hall of famer or a bust
A player that wasn't even drafted could go on to be a hall of famer

The point is that after week 5 is not the time to pick your horse and say "thats it, we made the wrong decision"

stop being so negative, good things don't happen overnight.

well when you think about it the chiefs drafted some one later in the draft who is producing the same number of sacks as the number1 overall pick....heck even that seahawk DE is producing more and what he was a 2nd round - 3rd round pick?????

dont get me wrong peeps i am and will always be a fan of mario

How many tipped passes do they have at the goal line in the last seconds of the game??

Oh yeah. well we drafted the leading canadate for Defensive Rookie of the Year in the 2nd round - Demeco Ryans.

That is where you are going with all of these posts right.
You want to us to think that Manny is better than Mario? Trying to make us feel regret? Trying to make you feel great?

Not working. We are happy with our guy. We don't run a 3-4 and Manny isn't right for our system. If he works out for you guys great.

Well I can't believe you guys passed on Demeco Ryans. What a dumb move. (Good for the Goose)

You're taking what i said the wrong way. This thread is about Lawson so i decided to post what he did Sunday, and he blocked a punt.........

I think Lawson is going to be a great player, he and Mario went hand and hand and fed off each other.

At about the 3:30 mark, you can see the blocked punt (http://youtube.com/watch?v=vZcR_1XlCXc)

how about mark anderson for chicago.....drafted in the 5th round and has already 5.5 sacks and is not even starting........he seems to be a steal in the draft
