I think that Mario is learning how to be a NFL player. Keep in mind that he is only 22 right now(will be 23 at the end of January) and the transition from college to pro is a big one. In college he used his raw talent whereas now, he is learning he needs to utilize technique and combine it with his talent. I think that Mario is becoming what we all hoped he would be.
