This thread really has nothing to do with Antonio Smith doesn't it? It's really about people believing and acting like we can't function or play at a high level without Mario Williams.
I thought it was about how teams had to scheme for Mario and it opened up other players up.

But players are still coming open... Yes, even without Mario.

Where are you getting all that from? No one is saying anything like that at all. We're saying had Mario not got hurt, Barwin, Smith, & Antonio would have better stats right now. QB pressures, tackles, sacks..... all of the above.

No one believes the defense doesn't work without Mario. We just think it works better with Mario. Like Maybe we wouldn't be leading the league in blitzing right now if we had Mario.

FYI, it's been a long time belief that if you can't get pressure without blitzing, something is wrong with the DL. Not everyone thinks this, but a lot of people have, for a very long time.

agree i remember a certain someone saying smith was a way better player than mario, and that all his sacks had nothing to do with mario. Well we can see more and more that is false.
