Definitely man, hopefully this short week won't hurt us too much and he can show the NFL just how good he has become.

Mario is playing so strong right now.

The majority of his pressures were from LDE. He would have had another sack if Kalu/Cochran? would have contained McCown but he was able to scramble out.

I also saw Mario add a lot of pressure on stunts. They had him cutting inside and would blow by the Guard and Center almost untouched. I counted 3 times he could have had a sack if we had better coverage or McCown hadn't thrown the short quick pass.

Mario's sack came on a 3rd and 2 from our 4 yard line. There was less than a minute left but still a chance if the Bucs scored and got an onside kick- we'd be fretting. He got the sack for a 13 yard loss causing 4th and 15 and pretty much sealed the win for us with the clock continuing to run down and TB having no time outs.

What a game- our Defense was constantly pressuring the QB. Greenwood was in on A LOT and Demps had some great hits.

You left a few guys off of the list, like a few guys in New York, but Ill give you on the short list. But to be the best right now is a little much. In a year or two, we could have the best MLB and DE in the leauge. That will kick @$$.

I would say that Antonio Cromartie and Joseph Addai could make an argument for themselves in hindsight. I would probably give the nod to Mario just to keep us as having made the right pick after all, but AC and JA are both really really good players.

Cromartie is just an insane athlete and is just a playmaker and Addai produces results, been pretty durable and reliable with injuries/fumbles, and helped them win a championship. Mario has done a GREAT job working on his game and his motor has really improved though. Of that there is no question.

My favorite thing and one of the more overlooked attributes of Mario's game is his durability and his ability to play so many snaps and still be effective. I just think its not a complete no-brainer that he would go #1 but he is probably the best choice for a variety of reasons.....

ok, ill say it.....Super Mario

It's great to see such enthusiasm today about Mario.

I always expect fans at the games to be cynical about Mario the way that people here can be, and I'm always surprised.

Every time Mario gets a sack or a TFL, the Reliant crowd goes absolutely nuts.

I hope he gets a Pro Bowl invite. That will get him even more recognition/kudos from the national media.

That's unfortunate - I was hoping that Mario would have time to show his stuff on the national stage.

Thanks for the info.

He would of had another sack if not for that hold. He got pressure and he made timely plays all day. Now we just need to repeat and stir.

Ever since the Oakland game it seems as if something has finally 'clicked' for Mario. Perhaps with Dunta going down with that terrible injury Mario realized that this team needed him to emerge as a dominant force just to contend with other teams, but whatever it is Mario is finally playing & reacting instead of thinking.
