Default Expectations of Mario Williams in 2007

i figured since we have an expectation thread for matt schaub our new number 8 we could use a expectation thread on our former 1st overall pick last year.

so what is everyones expectations for mario this season?

i want to see him be the dominant player he was at college for a good portion of the season...i know he's not ready yet to be a dominant every game but if he can rack up around 10 sacks this season i think we have look at that as huge improvement...i want to see him develop a second pass rush technique...and i want to see him at one position...not switching back and fourth between dt and de...i think that alone will help him the most

Double Digit Sacks

and maybe towards the end of the season, see him able to get some penetration from inside the line, but thats icing on the cake.

I just expect him to be there to force teams to run the other way and to have a few more games like the Giants game. I expect to see OT's flying into the backfield and landing on their backs and some QB's to have that "OH SHEEET!!!!" look on their faces.

I don't want to get caught up in numbers other than wins and losses.

Personally, my expectations for him is no different than the rest of the team. I say just go out and give it your all, 100% of the time. I don't like excuses about him or anyone else for that matter playing in pain and all that stuff. If you're on the field, play hard. It's just that simple.

Honestly I do not care how many sacks he gets, if he can demand double coverage often, that should lead to sacks for the team.

I expect to see him more calm than last year, fewer jitters. And if the toe-thingie were the thing holding him back last year (I guess it is, I have no reason to think otherwise) then he'll be a dominating factor on our defence.

So... I expect few sacks from Mario, but a dominating and vital role in the defense, leading to overall success

I would like to see him in the pro bowl but if nothing else as long as he contributes to us getting our first winning season then I would say thats a start.

He had 4.5 sacks at the mid-point of last season then suffered from plantar fasciitis. I think he will be very good this year, but not great. I'm guessing 8-12 sacks if he stays healthy at least 14 games.

I expect him to be a top 5 pass rusher and lead our team with tackles for loss. Tackles for loss are just as valuable as sacks, but they aren't talked about as much. I also expect a few more forced fumbles. He showed great progression last season and now that he is injury free he should come out with a lot to prove and have a great season.

Sprout wings and fly around the stadium whistling the Star Spangled Banner and perhaps to solve the AIDS crisis in Africa.

I mean...vince shoots lasers out his eyes...Mario's gotta one-up that.

Agreed, that is a big deal to me as well. Equally as important as sacks, since the result is the same...lost yardage.

That sound more likely....I'll say 10-14 though. It may sound a bit much, but he was on a roll to get 9 last season before the injury, and hopefully he will only improve. The only thing that might keep him at 10 sacks or fewer is the fact that we still don't have a single quality DT.

Haha I'm surprised I haven't heard anyone say "go back in time and make the Texans select VY"

But seriously, I fully expect him to produce at least 10 sacks and 2 forced fumbles
