If Mario doesn't make more of an impact, the Texans shouldn't pay him the big money in 2013. I am all for franchising him in 2012 though. I would also be open to a trade if he doesn't start kicking some ass.

The context of the conversation was having a guy like AJ Hawk or others who live and breath football. Do the Texans have many guys who take the job as their life. I've never looked at Mario as a guy who is fully committed or always in the game. Special talent but not a guy I'd be afraid to lose for the right price.
I like Mario, but honestly, this doesn't surprise me at all. People keep bringing up Bruce Smith for comparison, but I just don't see the fire and passion in Mario that I saw in Bruce for many, many years.

I think AJ is, without a doubt, one of those "football is my life" players. I'm not sure how many we have, but I'd be willing to bet we have at least a few more (at least from public persona, since that's all we have to judge by). DeMeco seems like one, as well as...ummm...maybe Cushing?

Does anybody remember the #1 knock on Mario Williams when he was coming out of NC St?




His best season as a pro is when he was trying to prove the national media wrong. I still like him though, just don't see how he fits this system.

That has to be accurate. A radio host knows a guy who rides Harleys with Mario. We're supposed to take something like this seriously?

Oh and I won't claim to know Mario doesn't own a Harley but I am pretty sure he prefers sport bikes.

Pretty sure based on his being a speed freak and having seen a report of his buying a GSXR at one point.

I think they call them Hyabusa's...

I'm not quite 6'7" but a Hybusa fits under me very well, with room to grow.

I posted it because it was LZ. I'm not saying the guy us infallible or knows all but he is pretty much, along with Harris, as close to football gurus as we have here in town. He also, because of his Dad, is in the know with agents, other players, etc. I don't think it really would have been brought up unless he trusted the source. Again, you can take it for what its worth but to me it fits the Mario we see to a tee. It was just something presented for public consumption. Considering he has been right on many similar issues over the year....the facts on Cushing suspension, etc... I thought it was worth a post.

Don't kill the poster. Geez. You know me, I make a habit of rumor mongering.

And it would have been any bike...he said bikes and I assumed Harley due to size of the crotch rockets out there.
