Wink ESPN Speaks Positively of Mario!!!

Just saw the ESPN highlight of the game.
They spoke descently of Mario.
Showed his batted ball where he WAS DOUBLE TEAMED BY THE WAY!!!!
And then showed his Tackle BEHIND THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE and said,
"And THAT is why they drafted him at #1."

NOT leaps and bounds...but a little vindication for Mario.

Good game MW!!!

And he was WORKING that double team for the batted ball!

It's probably Michael Smith sneaking that into the teleprompter while the rest of the ESPN crew is looking for new metaphors and analogies for Reggie Bush to use on Monday.

pretty much, i was kind of gloating seeing how the media has ragged on us ever since we took mario over vince and bush. vince has struggled for the most part and bush hasnt done anything our 6th round rookie back hasnt done. mario IMO has improved from last week to this week and I hope it continues so ESPN and everyone else can eat crow.

cbs recap of the game speaks highly of mario too. "Mario Williams looked less like a mistake-prone rookie and more like the No. 1 pick of the draft in his second preseason game."

It may only be preseason, but this is the best I can ever remember feeling as a Texan fan!

Is it just me or does anyone else think the reason Peek was able to get those sacks has a lot to do with Mario demanding so much attention?

I hear he is getting double teamed. Who is on the other side that's open that can get to the QB? Who is not doing their job?

...exactly!...one of the main reasons but-unfortunately-too many people don't understand this, as they are only considering actual sacks by Mario.

Ohh... come on....

I'm glad to see Mario looking good out there for yall. I wouldn't be expecting him to get the same type of exposure as Reggie is down here in New Orleans, but I'm sure that he'll do a fine job down there in Houston.

And his rushing TD, he got laid out, fumbled, and luckly he retrieved the fumble in the endzone.

And he had an interception reversed because of a penalty on the defense.

with the owner Benson in N.O. he will be a great player but he will never get a ring with the Saints.

Looks like the texans wasted their number one draft pick on this big ape, should of had enough sense to go Reggie or Vince. This will be the ultimate downfall of the Texans as we know it!
