Hopefully he gets more playing. The official quotes had Mercilus talking about rookie wall(yeah someone asked him) all he said was normally he would Be almost done playing the college season and here in the nfl, he has 8 more games to go.(at least) and doesnt think he will hit the rookie wall. well He said more about it but can't remember exactly

I want him held back in case we really REALLY need him down the stretch.
like your breakdown, seems reasonable to me. Or you could take it a step further & just say he is half a second quicker to the QB than Mario, which can make all the difference in the world. But look @ me I didn't even bother to mock him to the Texans because I thought for sure he would be long gone. Texan fans be patient he has everything you look for in a pass rusher, 1st rd. pick & Texan (awesome parents too!).

I got to watch him at the game today, and I loved what I saw. "Smart and fast" sums up his performance. He sheds blockers, slips through gaps, and gets to his target. We have a lot to look forward to with this player. Wade hit another home run.

This is insane! Half the year is over and you describe him as a difference maker yet you want to sit him "IN CASE WE NEED HIM LATER"? You are starting to think too much like the old Kubiak. He needs to be getting 15 to 25 plays a game to develop and Phillips needs to start designing packages to take advantage of his special abilities NOW! This guy has flashed D Ware ability. You don't sit those type players. You fine ways to get them on the field and keep them there.

What I liked about Mercilus' last sack is how he closed in on the QB. He was running so fast it looked as if he vacuumed the QB.

I thought that was Rex Ryan's Jets who did that to us?

Sanchez got sacked by Watt and somehow after the game it was changed to a "designed run play."

It was Miami and it was like 5 or 6 weeks after the game had happened.

The Texans defense has 25 total sacks on the year so far. They are on pace for 50 this year, six better than the team record set in 2011 with 44 sacks.

Individual Leaders:

JJ Watt 10.5
Antonio Smith 4
Whitney Mercilus 3
Brooks Reed 2.5
Connor Barwin 2

Default Re: Our first round pick Whitney Mercilus

and in those 3 sacks he has 2 forced fumbles. the kid has a whole lot of robert mathis about him. outside of the obvious pass rush ability, there's a sense of timing and general awareness of the quarterback that's not common with most rushers. there's nothing wrong with "hit the guy with the ball", but mercilus takes it that next step.

Almost half the sacks are from one person. That's not good for us. Barwin & Brooks need to step it up. Crick needs to show up.


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.

Brooks' 2.5. And 100 million dollars lol....

Wouldn't matter to me if the Texans got 50 sacks and 49 of them came from MegaWatt.

Well, my thinking is that we're going to wear Watt down or shorten his career at the very least. It's the same thing with Foster, it's nice to have a Ben Tate backing him up, helps make sure Foster is good to go for the play-offs this year & next year.

That doesn't make sense. Weather he gets the sack or not he will still be taking on blockers every play.
