And I think it is the entire unit working together that is allowing the different player to excel. Kalu has been the vocal leader of the group and his missing the game did have an effect. I think Kalu makes the game fun for the other guys and they start looping and stunting and setting guys up to succeed.

Mario has had a solid year against the run, DE and DT rarely have a ton of tackles, and him and Amobi being near the ball on nearly every play is a sign of their hustle and quickness.

It is nice to see his hard work being noticed around the league.

A lot of you labeled him as a bust in the preseason and even through week one. I'd like to see some crow served, it that's not asking too much. Same thing goes for Travis Johnson. He was never given a chance and has never played bad under Kubiak, yet he's a bust.

They should replace the stadium chant of "Houston Texans" with "Amobi Okoye" for a defensive stand or two.

We've got some young studs on D!

I never called either a bust, but I think the label was a lot more defensible for TJ. Kubiak DID have to get on his case to motivate him. Something he hasn't had to do with Amobi. Looking forward to a lot more awards for the kid.

Way to go Amobi ! Now Defensive ROY shouldn't be too far behind if he continues at this pace .

Two consecutive DROYs? It's possible it could happen if Patrick Willis starts to slow down some more since a great LB season always gets the nod over a great DT season.

Hope Amobi adds some more sack numbers this week. He's going to need every one of them if he wants DROY.

A moderately good linebacking season will get more awards than a great DT season.

That was not Demeecos fault. It was the guys who came flying in and knocking others off the tackle. They are supposed to help not hinder.

LOL, you're suggesting Demeco should have been benched over that? That is ludicrous. Even if Ryans had just totally botched that tackle and looked like P-Buch or Matt Stevens, he's been such a sure tackler, that would be his mulligan. You can't be serious, right?

I was re-watching the game yesterday. I saw one play where Amobi busted through the line, and stopped Norwood in the backfield for a loss.

The announcer went crazy, about how impressive Amobi was, about how great he was going to be, and about how much that play was going to help us in the game.


The very next play, Mario did the exact same thing.

The announcer was ho-hum about it.

He seems to always be on his feet at the end of plays but is that necessarily a good thing? He doesn't seem to want to stick his nose in it sometimes. Weaver is an average DE which is all he has ever been. He isn't a liability but he isn't much of a playmaker either.

I think TJ and Okoye could really be a nice DT tandem but am not sure about Mario and Weaver as our starting DE. Kalu when healthy is a better alternative than either guy at the moment. I think it may be time to start giving some of our DE youth a shot at some playing time too. Maybe it will light a fire under MW and AW to start getting to the QB or ride pine.

I think Mario could become a really good DE but he has got to start earning his keep soon. He is just beat in too many one on one matchups even with TEs blocking him.

Props to Okoye for playing with a motor and with heart. He deserves NFL DROM for sure. 4 sacks in 4 games extrapolates into a 16 sack season. That would be a bonafide legitimate trip to Hawaii for the Pro Bowl. He is going to be a monster.....Mario? me thinks not so much...
Smith's secret plan it to move Mario to Weaver's spot and draft a D lineman in 2008 first round.
