It'd be cooler if it was mario watching film of himself showing sacks against various opponents but beginning with a VY sack & ending with a RB run stuffing tackle. At the end of the commercial the camera zooms in on mario's face & he says "any questions?"

Instead of any questions, maybe "Youre welcome"

Doubt any of the national corps would do this commercial.

But I'd bet my milk money that if a local company did it, then it would only be a matter of time before it was shown on bspn.

OK local businesses, you've been given the idea, run with it.

Maybe mattress Mac can donate a tv to Bush to watch Mario play.

Ditto. Madden and the NFL wouldn't go for it, but the Texans marketing department could sure do it as a season ticket promo in the spring and summer. Intersperse video of Mario watching the Reggie and Vince commercials with cuts of his sacks, ending on the Reggie one with him saying, "Thanks". Then Mario could just look at the camera and say it.


Nice.

From the Peter King piece linked above:
Quote:
Vindication should be Charley Casserly's. It's still early, and we can't judge the top of the 2006 draft after 1 3/4 seasons, but the last major decision Casserly made before being nudged into the CBS NFL Today studio show (where, by the way, he's doing a thorough, cool and insightful job) has turned out to be brilliant.
This was not Charley Casserly's pick. I don't care how often he takes credit for it. And I don't know if it was actually Kubiak's or McNair's pick. But, there's no freakin' way that a lame duck GM gets to make the call on a $54 million investment.

Just read that before I got here and was going to post it, luckily I looked here so there wouldn't be another thread about it. It's a good read, you guys should also check out the recovery of Kevin Everitt. Inspiration for anyone who is having a rough patch at any moment of their life.

When he was playing poorly it was a Casserly pick, at least on this board. No way Kubiak would have done it! Opinion sways with the wind...

I always thought it was a Kubiak pick and the YKW was Mcnair but what the heck do I know I was not in on any of the meetings.

I always thought it was a Kubiak pick too. He had a lot of control when he got here. I always noticed Casserly getting bashed for Mario while Kubiak got praised for Demeco, Winston, Spencer, Daniels, etc.

But you're right - we don't know. Maybe they were all Casserly picks.
