This was the best Texans home game i've ever attended!!! The crowd was electric, the team won decisively, and I think we've finally seen Mario turn the corner and become a legit superstar in H-Town as evidenced by the "MA-RI-O" chants throughout the stadium after every play he made tonight.

Man for sure. This was amazing. This was my third game (also was at the Indy and Titans games) and this one was by far the best. But that could also be because I was 7th row instead of 2nd deck last row...

Mario said in a post game interview on NFLN that he's never been to Hawaii and will never go unless invited.

I like the attitude!

Never, ever tell anyone you watched Grey's Anatomy over the Texans. For shame.

Well, I watch with the wife. There are lot worse chick shows out there. Bonding time. It works. Twenty five years of marrage and counting. Pick your fights carefully, don't sweat the small stuff...carve out some bonding time. You will be king of the house.

Yes, but your sister conveintly forgot to tell you it was a re-run...too funny. See I knew becuse I let her watch her shows and when I decide to dump one... she lets me.

Before we dive into the Texans' 31-13 victory over the Broncos, let's give some credit to Charley Casserly, the former general manager who convinced owner Bob McNair and coach Gary Kubiak to draft Mario Williams over Reggie Bush.

Here you go dude, this is on todays blog.

So what you're saying is that I'm supposed to believe you and some of the MB members instead of McClain who is a lot closer to the team?
Let me think about that one......the answer is no, I'll believe McClain.

McClain has also stated on numerous occasions that the Texans made a mistake picking Mario over Vince Young, and has consistently stated that VY should already have his name engraved on the Hall of Fame.

So take McClain's spewage with a grain of salt. The dude is a weed in the wind, and if he was as smart as he thinks he is, he would be working for a team evaluating talent instead of just talking about one.

And actually, McClain is not that close to the team. He's a lot closer to the Tennessee Titans, though. They are his favorites.

McClain is closer to the NFL in general but isn't closer to this team. There has been a notable drop off in attributed quotes since Casserly left. McClain is doing nothing more than speculating like any other fan at this point.

Digging a little deeper , you must thank them for extending Carr's contract . Then thank Bush for taking illegal money .

Take these two events and add Mario's off the chart combine and you get our present situation .

Default Re: Mario Williams

Did it seem like the lineman were standing nearly single file in the middle of the field prior to snaps, and then they'd move once the offense came to the line of scrimmage so the offense didn't know where Mario was going to line up until they set up? Have we always done that and I just never noticed?

That's freakin sweet that Smith is letting Mario call for his favorite five plays, and it seems to be working too.

We've been doing that for most of the year. It's not entirely to keep the offense from knowing where Mario is; it's also about looking at the offensive alignment and then us putting our guys where they can do the most damage. For example, to put Mario weakside or strongside for a particular play.

Good point on Okoye, looking back at the highlights he may not have any sacks to show for it but he was creating havoc last night.

Mario Williams is a Monster
Jim Rome / 12-14-2007

Quick shout out to Houston Texans stud, Mario Williams. Speaking on behalf the entire universe, sorry we crushed and vilified you before you had even stepped on to your first NFL field. Sorry, we annihilated you as the NFL’s Sam Bowie before you had even had a chance to rush your first NFL QB…and we’re all guilty of it.

Who amongst us didn’t jump the Texans for taking Williams over Reggie Bush and Vince Young. I mean, has there even been more pressure on a draft pick. Even if he succeeded, he still failed. No matter what he did, it would never be enough. Considering he went first and who he was taken over, he had to be a once in a lifetime player. Playing great wasn’t enough, he had to take over games by himself…and that’s exactly what he’s doing now. Taking over games. He hounded Jay Cutler last night like he owed him money or stole something from him…sacked him three and half times…giving him 9 in the last 5 games alone.

The guy is playing like a stronger Dwight Freeney…a faster Patrick Kerney. He’s playing like the number one pick overall…and he’s playing much better than Bush and V-Y. Bush and Young relied on their natural ability last year and both have taken big steps backwards this year. Williams, on the other hand, stayed the course and caught up with his ability, and now he dominating…and best of all, despite all the heat he took, he never once lashed out, got bent or demanded an apology. Well, here’s the apology you never asked for Mario, but deserve. You’re a beast on the field, a class act off it. You’ve blown by Bush and Young. You’re living up to the hype and it looks the Texans knew exactly what they were doing. See you in Honolulu, Mario!
