Default Talk Smack about Mario more often..

Maybe all the garbage printed in the "Comical" and smack ranted on Houston Sports Radio about Mario this week inspired him to Kick A and take names tonight.....

The guy has been playing great all night. I hope we will be seeing more of this in the future..

Or he is on the left side, and he is better suited for that.

Default Re: Talk Smack about Mario more often..

He played well. He put pressure on the QB, stood up against the run, showed some speed of the edge... I liked his performance. I also saw him get pushed to the ground on occasion, but he's not going to look like a stud every play. Every player has some good plays and some bad plays, if you just nit pick on his bad plays you're going to develop a pretty bad and biased impression. What he needs is experience and good coaching to reduce the bad plays and make him more consistent.

I thought he looked real good as our LE as well, he's more natural there IMO.

Default Re: Talk Smack about Mario more often..

he should've had about 3 sacks this game. Showed good pressure and played with alot more effort today. I say we should keep him on the left and let Babin play on the right.

Right now, that looks like the right mix. Mario seems much more comfortable on the left side and he seems to plays pretty darn well there.

Default Re: Talk Smack about Mario more often..

My only knock is he needs to tackle better, he left about 3 sacks out on the field, and both he missed by just inches....eh at least the pressure and intensity was there, definitely looked like a different guy though and much improved.

Default Re: Talk Smack about Mario more often..

One thing Mario should be given credit for is his effort chasing plays. He is in on tons of tackles away from his side and is often one of the first guys to the ball five or ten yards beyond the line. One one play in particular during the last Dallas drive of the first half I watched him speed rush five yards behind Romo only to catch the receiver of a five yard pass at the point of the tackle moments later. He has incredible speed.

And am I mistaken, or did Okoye get a sack on the last play of the first half?

Okoye pressured Romo but he evaded him, Anderson finished Romo and got the credit.

I thought Mario should've got half a sack on the sack from Orr.

Mario = much improved. No question he was giving it 100% tonight.

Wish he would have taken a good shot at Romo when he fumbled instead of slinging him to the ground. I want to see him take somebody's head off!

Default Re: Talk Smack about Mario more often..

Got back from Reliant..............Mario looked much better with pressure, but was always going wide outside. He was playing both right and left end almost equally and as usual looked a little stronger against the run which came to that side or center. While on the left side he was using his hands like a cat pawing ultra fast at some hanging catnip. this almost slapping motion was performed against the left tackle's chest..............what's with that maneuver?.........All-in-all, there was some fire detectable.

He, and the rest of the DL, looked very stout against the run. This could be a pretty impressive D. Stuffing the run is job 1 of any defense.

Mario Williams is going to do nothing but get better . . . and better . . . and better.

Amobi Okoye is going to do nothing but get better . . . and better . . . and better.

I saw flashes tonight. As long as I continue to see those flashes, I'm happy. It's gonna be fun to watch.

Turn about is fair play. Mario looked good tonight as did the rest of the team. They keep this up and I'm going to have to rethink my 8 - 8 prediction for this season.

Since Mario did so well on the left side and since Babin is having such a nice preseason, our front D-line may change to Mario, Maddox, Okoya, Babin.

Travis Johnson had a heck of a game tonight, too, so you might want to find a spot in the front four for him as well.
