Talking 5-2

Williams, Johnson, Maddox, Okoye, Babin

Clark Ryans

TRY AND RUN NOW!

Do we really need Greenwood, when we could do this?

I'm just kidding, of course. We don't have the secondary for it.

I didn't catch the game, but I recall Mario having his best games on the strong side.

X,

Your post earlier this week was right on the money. He is, and should remain, the LE on this defense. He just looks more comfortable playing that way, more aggressive and less tentative.

Just my .02

I thought that his earlier poor performances might be due to his lack of familiarity and comfortability with playing RDE. That was why I started a thread to analyze what position Mario Williams was lined up in last year on the plays that he had the most success.

On a few plays, I think I saw Shantee Orr lined up as RDE with the first unit, or was he just lined up as the WLB blitzing, with Mario at LDE. It seemed to create havoc in the back field. I hope to see the 4 Firsts front that Xtru and others, including myself, have been asking for, on Thursday.

Could someone, if you didn't see it during the game, please review Mario film on the right side and please explain to me was was with those maneuvers?

I saw it.

One thing I noticed is that at the start it seemed like he was running away from the tackle to get space. Because usually he used to get locked up and then he'd be useless on the play.

So from what I seen when he had his space he did that 'clawing' I am not sure if he did it on purpose, but I think once he had the space he could use his speed and I saw it as sorta 'Juking' the tackle. I'd have to see the game again though. I think it is coming on again on NFL TV in about 15 minutes.

Default Re: Talk Smack about Mario more often..

I don't get to watch all the games, but I'm gonna go ahead and just give my opinion on this position situation with Mario. I don't think he has a fast enough first step to have much success rushing the passer from the weak side. He's fast enough, but I don't think he's quick enough for it. I've seen him go like he was going to try to do it, sort of get beat to the outside (or at least not win the quickness battle well enough), and then go way back inside and head for the noseguard/center area like he thought there'd been a hand off or something. Any player knows you don't actually have time to do all that and still get to the QB in one play.

The good news is that Mario is even stronger than we probably thought when he was drafted. He might get to the QB as much from the strong side as we hoped he would from the weak side, and that frees up somebody else to do that weak side edge-rushing.

Default Re: Talk Smack about Mario more often..

I saw the effort there tonight, maybe the smack talk all week did help. For all the calling out the media did all week, I am sure the coaches did alot more in practice.

I think the one thing that is missing with Mario is technique. That is something that is going have to develop. A spin move, a swim move, a feint move all would help him as he is strong and fast already.

I'm going to review the film and do a write up about every position and try to get actual times so people can go back and look at it if they want to...

I saw what you were talking about and that wasn't really any specific technique...he was just trying to keep the offensive linemans hands busy, and off of him...

Is it safe to say yet that Mario's picking up some technique?
