I still think this defense would be better with Mario, Imagine if he & Watt had 10 sacks & all we'd have to lose is Brooks' 2.5. That would be a scary defense.
You're right. But only if the Mario we saw during the first five games of last year is the one that shows up this year. I ain't quite convinced we would see that same guy.
And then there's the little matter of who ELSE we would have had to send packing to fit that humongous salary of his in our budget.
Loyalty to any one sports team is pretty hard to justify. ...the players are always changing, the team can move to another city, you're actually rooting for the clothes when you get right down to it.
