In a promo for Fox NFL Sunday they say they are going to discuss the top 10 defensive players in the NFL and Mario was one of the 3 players they showed in the promo.

Just thought it was nice to see Mario get some much deserved love.

Yea, I think he deserves it too. He is dominate with not a whole lot around him. He's so young too, it is fantastic.

Seems like a good time to make our own lists:

No particular order:

Mario Williams
Ndami Ashoumagh... or however you spell it
DeMarcus Ware
Albert Haynesworth
Patrick Willis
Ray Lewis (it seems to me that this guy STILL hasn't lost a step)
Ed Reed
Brian Dawkins
Cortland Finnegan
James Harrison

That's ten... just off the top of my head, so I'm sure I left out a lot of guys. I guess DeMeco should be on there, though he hasn't been as great this year because of his ankle.

It's amazing what a good ole fashioned steroid regimen will do.

If Ray Lewis was on steroids, he'd be out of the league by now. Baseball players on steroids can have long careers because they rarely have to go all out.

Mario Williams
Demeco Ryans
Patrick Willis
Ray Lewis
Demarcus Ware
Nnamdi Asomgha
Lamar Woodley (not Harrison)
Troy Polamulu
Ed Reed
Fat Al

Man, that's a hard list to make. I just don't see how people can leave Demeco off of their lists. I think some Texans fans take the guy for granted. Demeco was the ROY in 2006 and the AFC STARTER at MLB in last year's Pro Bowl. How anyone can leave him off their list is appalling and absurd!

You put Patrick Willis and Ray Lewis on your list, so where's Demeco Ryans?

Again - Patrick Willis and Ray Lewis, but no Demeco Ryans???

I take my Toro glasses off and still see DeMeco and Mario in the top 10. Weird.

You quoted me, but did you not read what I said? DeMeco's in the conversation, but he's been slowed a little bit because of his ankle. I'm going on this year right now. I love DeMeco as much as the next guy, believe me... but his ankle is limiting his greatness.

Where's your list?

Antonio Cromartie is an average cover corner. He's a great playmaker - but his cover skills are average. Champ Bailey? I think he's still one of the top corners, but top ten defensive player in the league? Nah.

I would rather debate 1st team all-pro the defense has 11 positions not 10.

LDE Mario Williams
RDE DeMarcus Ware
DT Albert Haynsworth
DT Kevin Williams
MLB DeMeco Ryans
OLB Joey Porter
OLB LaMar Woodley
CB Darrelle Revis
CB Charles Woodson
FS Nick Collins
SS Troy Polamalu

Ankle or no ankle, there's still no convincing me that Demeco Ryans is not in the top 10 of the best defensive players in the league.

Mario Williams
Demeco Ryans
Patrick Willis
Bob Sanders
Ed Reed
Albert Haynesworth
Kyle Van den Bosh
Kieth Bullock
Demarcus Ware (instead of Palumalu)
Donte Whitner

And think, 3 could have been on our team. Go Amobi...:brickwall:

I saw a preview for this special that they are running before the games on Sunday, and they had a clip of Mario making a sack, Demarcus Ware, and someone else. I'm hoping MW gets the respect he's earned
