I'm not going to argue with you, because if you can't see the irony of saying VY has guys making plays for him, when our QB basically was just on the field doing something my grandma could have done, then I can't help you....

We managed -5 passing yards....Our QB basically was just a hand-off man....Surely he had as much to do with that victory as everyone else....

Maybe I have slept since then, but when did I say VY had plays made for him or that our QB was a major contributor to the win in Oakland... Please, do not put words in my mouth..

The only point that I have made is that you need all three phases of the game to win consistently. Sure when you get there sometimes one phase can pull a game out for you.. But we are not there. We need all three and until then we will be 4-12. Maybe 6-10 or 7-9 next year...

My other point is blame the QB all you want, but that is not going to change the fact that this a bad team... Throwing VY, Montana, or anyone else in the mix without anything adding to those other elements and this team is just as bad as it is now...

Now he's a 1/2 a sack behind the 54 million dollar man, has played about 200 - 250 less plays and knowone says a word about Mario beeing a bust. Well except me that is....Babin might me a 10 to 12 sack guy a year playing at DE if he played every down?
Hey why isn't anyone saying anything about Carr passing for 32 yards this weekend. Maybe in the off season we should see if he not only needs a contract extension but extra money. Naaa let's just sign Jeff George or hey how about Gannon? Maybe we can get him out of the booth.
Mario has had plantar fasciatis in his right foot since somewhere around the Giants game. He's been running with a noticible limp and basicaly cant push off his right foot. Expecting him to keep getting sacks in that situation is stupid...he's already taking one for the team by gutting it out and getting on the field.

Default Re: The day mario got lapped...

wow mario is the only defensive lineman that gained a "Sack" because the QB fell down first and then Mario touched him..


hmmm maybe that stat should be thrown out the window along with a "tackle" when a QB slides feet first.

I had the same problem about five years ago the pain is in your heal and it effects you most in the morning when you take your first 20 steps.Its something he can play with,and it is something that everyone can say it limits his play.does it who knows.

Mario isn't a beast.He just an average player right now.IMO I'd rather have Reggie or Vince over him.

Tim Duncan had it for most of last year. Go check last his stats from last year to see just how much it affects a player. It also dosnt help when he is a 300 lb mamouth...big guys tend to have lots of foot problems.

I believe he plays basketball. There is a lot more running and a lot more jumping than a football game. Duncan played about 80 games last year..He is not twenty-one years old. He is around thirty. In basketball life, he is a old man.

Carr haters will suggest that Carr should have single-handedly score more points to deflect any blame from the D... Point is, You need Defense, Offense AND Special Teams to win consisitently...

Keep ignoring all those facts if you want, just don't try p***ing in the wind and tell me its raining...
I said the D was stellar against the Raiders....... I said we had guys making plays on deffense(Faggins, 'meco, Dunta, Babin, Mario, Greenwood) and our QB couldn't throw for his normal 6 yards per pass..... we had 120 yards rushing from our running backs, and our QB was nowhere near his 22 for 22, 4 TDs in the 4th Qtr self. D'ya think defenses have figured him out yet?? could be.

If you want to bit¢h about the Defense...... you'll have to do it some other week, because they did their job this past Sunday. Wanna talk about our poor run blocking...... nope, they did their job. Wanna talk about our round has been RB........ 95 yards on 13 carries(against a pretty stout D no less)....sorry, but we can't really complain about much in those areas.

Come on Johnyboy....Why would the coaching staff come out and say they made a mistake by drafting him? He was lazy in college, and he's lazy now but with 54 million reasons....He's a rookie. He missed a month in the summer because of an infected toe, Hasn't practiced in a month. What the heck is he going to be like in 3 years? There's always an excuse....I'll quote the great Lawrence Taylor "When your an all pro, you gotta play when your hurt baby".
Where the 15 sacks I heard about when they drafted him. It's gonna take him 3 years to get that?

That's OK - It's interesting to see what difference another season made. Mario has turned out much better than the 'weak sister' this thread made him out to be originally.

Dude, don't worry about it. Everyone's just happy that...everyone was wrong. Michael Smith is the only talking head I remember giving him any props. I was a Mario supporter, and I doubted him as recently as this past pre-season.
