Not sure if this has been posted, but Mario was interviewed today and while all pro players pretty much say the right things, this is a statement that I personally have been wanting to see:


(on how it seems like he is doing more hand fighting than someone his size needs) “I feel like I’m 295 lbs so I have to be more violent. That is the number one thing my coaches tell me about is I have to be more violent and not really patty-cake with anybody. Just go hit them in the mouth and make a move after that.”

Let's hope he takes this to heart and does it. BTW, we aren't responsible for the opposition's dental bills are we? :stirpot:

I for one would love to see this guy throw a bigger punch, not lay his hands on someone and push but PUNCH his guy in the chest and slide that sucker up into his throat every now and again.

This guy can play he needs someone to talk about his mom or he needs someone to step on his infected toe to get MAD!!!!!!!!!

He needs to take a class in Peek 101- How to get flippin ticked.

Wow, imagine Mario's physical tool set with Peek's motor/attitude. I like Peek, even in the Texans' programs he looks like he's ready to jump up and sack the photographer.

We really need Peek back in like Hulk said!

This team is in NEED of someone with fire to yell on the sidelines ala Michael Strayhorn and Jeremy Shockey of the Giants

(not going as far as Shockey did by pointing fingers but people to get MAD about this on the sidelines DURING the game).

There have been about 5 times thru pre-season and the 1st 3 games when Mario looked like he forgot about thinking and was just big--on those plays he has tossed people like they were nothing. Overall he has been unimpressive so far but IF or more hopefully when he learns to use what he has he can justify the #1 pick. Dude will never be Freeney or Kearse--he needs to learn to be Williams. A little Peek injection would be a good thing.

Ok I volunteer to go and bad mouth his momma thru a bull horn wearing the jearsey and helmet of the teams quarterback we're playing against. I will need a good driver. Someone that will get me the hell out of their if he should want to get violent with me.

Hehe...I was thinking about Henry Winkler talking to Sandler in The Waterboy, visualize and attack. What would Mario visualize...the press saying he shouldn't have been the number 1 pick. If that doesn't get him fired up I don't know what will. Just my :twocents:.

fwiw, the phrase "I want upper body violence" came out of Coach Karm's mouth every five minutes as I watched him put the DLs (including Mario) through their paces in training camp. That was in late July.

I'm sure Karm would be happy to read that Mario quote. It proves the student was listening to the teacher at some point in the last two months.

Next lesson: Just do it.

On the play where #76 got called for a hold against him, he was pretty awesome. He started going for the outside, and when #76 tried to step out in front of him, Mario exploded into his chest. #76 backs up & Resets, Mario punches him high in the chest, sending him back again...... Mario rushes him, & reaches for Brunnel, & that's when #76 started grapling him.

Babin was Bullrushing #69(??) at the same time, who also got called for holding.

If you watch the Colts game (Mario's best effort to date) He was blatantly held many times without a penalty being called. Had it not been for those holds he would have probably gotten at least 2 sacks as they were from Mannings blind side on those plays.

Butttttt..... That happens constantly in the NFL, so I guess you can't really use that as an excuse. I thought the comment he made about how hard it was to get a sack in the NFL was interesting. It kinda shows where he's at as a rookie. Figuring out that the NFL is much bigger and faster than college. He has obviously been playing with a lot of hesitation, He's not committing his whole body to the play. I really believe once it sinks in that he has the ability to dominate his blocker(s) He will. I also think that once he gets his first sack his confidence level will go way up, and he will be a force for the team.

He's been a Pro player for 3 games, and he was number one pick from college level football. I don't hear people dogging Seth Payne.. He has not played any better than Mario and he's part of the same crappy defense and is a seasoned veteren.

If anyone wants to blame a defensive player he should look at the lack of veteren leadership, not how the rookies are playing.

Unless of course they just have a chip on there shoulder about a specific player, or maybe thier still tring to prove to every one that they were right about a comment they made a month ago.

I agree with your post dantem...but MW is going to be going through the "Yao Ming" syndrome for a while. That is, until he realizes that he can whoop some tail!


I could understand why Yao Ming was having trouble adjusting to the more physical, aggressive nature of the NBA because of the differences in Chinese culture and international basketball. But, I don't see why MW has to be told or learn to be a little more violent in his game. Hopefully, he'll figure it out this year.

I don't really care if he doesn't get 3 sacks a game. Don't get me wrong I want to see him lead our team in sacks but what I want from him is what I was promised on draft day....making our defense better. If that means Weaver, Johnson, Peek, Babin or Payne end up leading our team in sacks with like 11 or something and/or our DBs are picking off QBs, I am all for that.

I do however want to see that be the case this Sunday because I am getting tired of losing and making other teams look like they are already engraving their name in the Lombardi.

Not that I'll ever be a good golfer...

Nice rhetoric and all, but it's nothing more than words until he backs them up on the field of play. The proof is in the pudding.

Exactly. That's sad. His quote from yesterday is very telling of the player that we drafted.

You all are completely taking his quote out of context. He had been speaking earlier about how he was thinking too much and trying to go through all of his reads (thus, slowing himself down, and making him less aggressive). So, as a result, he is now going to let loose more and play more violently (he is essentially throwing caution to the wind).

I think that the only thing telling about this comment is that he is not a jackass, and he wants to get better.

Yeah, right. The only thing Peek will do, is get in the backfield & suddenly realize that the little guy that he had to run around to get to the QB, was the RB taking off down the sideline for a TD. Peek is a 3rd & long pass rushing specialist, & nothing more. :stirpot:

I for one would love to see this guy throw a bigger punch, not lay his hands on someone and push but PUNCH his guy in the chest and slide that sucker up into his throat every now and again.

This guy can play he needs someone to talk about his mom or he needs someone to step on his infected toe to get MAD!!!!!!!!!

He needs to take a class in Peek 101- How to get flippin ticked.

What's a Peek? He was the tasmanian devil in the preseason. Has he played a down yet?

I serious think that the coaching staff had Mario thinking too much. Let this guy just pin his ears back and create havoc, that's it. His confidence is at a all-time low right now, let him loose and get that confidence back and i betcha people will start to take notice. It's all about CONFIDENCE!!

Nope, I'm waiting for:

"I contacted Peyton and his family and told them it was nothing personal. It's tough to know that you'll never play a down of football again. He's going through a tough time right now and he needs support."

We need to get someone in a Quizno's uniform yelling "Subway sucks!" to Mario. That should fire him up.

You should watch a show I saw about Reggie White. In part of it his High School coach talked about having to force the meaness out of Reggie by repeatedly hard fouling him in a basketball game to the point of making him cry. Back then Reggie was a 2 sport player. Finally, Reggie decided he wasn't going to take it anymore and the rest as they say is history. Here is to hoping Coach Karm forces the meaness out of Mario. :superman:

I actually agree with your premise....But at this stage in the game ?? It's one thing to be taught and molded when you are young....but he's in the NFL now...thats the point....isn't it a little late(and lame) to come out and say..."coach told me I gotta be more violent"....That nearly made me sick when I heard our number one pick, multi million dollar investment talking about becoming more "violent"....Here's to hoping for Marios success....

Agreed! And that's a good point.
Maybe MW has some Asian background that we aren't aware of?
:redtowel:
lolThis is probably news to you but Eastern Asians are not generally considered passive people historically.

It's kinda like telling lightning in a bottle to stop dancing int he backfield, and hit the hole. When you are on the other side of the line-of-scrimmage, I don't care if you do the hokie-pokie, but back there, hit the hole.

i.e. Ganghis Khan. You know I heard Ganghis had so many mistresses that he has ALMOST as many ancestors as Wilt Chamberlain.

Wow! I thought the Mongol Hoards were where Mongol farmers industriously stored their harvest as insurance against bad times.

Now that I've googled it, I find it is the Mongol Hordes. That is entirely different! It seems that the Mongols could have been described as warlike!

That just goes to show, spelling is important.

Mario doesn't strike me as a guy who takes matters into his own hands (Which a man his size should). It seems he's always looking for some sort of guidance from the coaches instead of using instinct. I wonder if he's so worried about making a mistake that he overanalyzes everything and ends up causing mistakes for himself.

Yeah, and that kinda makes me think....I kinda...sorta...slightly.....
maybe...a lil bit....understand where Coach Kubes and Mario are coming from..................Mario was playing tentative....Unsure almost....Coach is telling him to basically think less about the assignment, and more about the physical aspects of his game...the reason we drafted this so called "freak of nature"....And it may have came across the wrong way because of Mario's choice of words....insert hesitant where he says violent/agressive and that makes me feel a heck of a lot better......From a coaching perspective you can't really coach your players up if they aren't going full out...if they are kind of tip toeing it makes it hard to correctly critique them.....

Kubiak probably would rather Mario go full out...make a mistake mentally...Crush someone...kill some soul......as opposed to tip toeing, getting your assignment right(or atleast trying to), and being totally inefective.....Thats what I think it is....

Or....Maybe being the fan I am optimism just automatically creeps in as we get closer to game time...I dunno....:confused:

I hope you're correct. If I see him get manhandled by a guy like TE Mike Sellers again, I'll be sick. I don't know if he was just caught off guard or what but he was handled easily, resulting in a TD.:brickwall

Here's an important question...IMO

Is this cut loose and let it rip stuff mean that coach is going to keep him at one position?

If Mario feels comfortable cutting it loose at one spot well then lets just see how good he does. RE or LE?
