Mr. Big Play himself dosnt have a run longer then 33 yards (the lenght of Mario's longest run, lol). I think its pretty obvious Reggie has been a detriment to much of N.O's offense, while Mario has at least been average.
It's a futile attempt to try and show Dream anything. His name suggests what 'state' he is in... Logic isn't a friend here..... He's always had the man-love for Reggie or Vince and drinks the hatorade for Mario.

The hell you're not!! You have an agenda at it does not involve Mario or reggie but another player. No one is forgetting anything in with regards to Mario, he has done some things that are very good and other things that are not so good, but he is still the most active and productive member of the Texans D-Line. Is there room for improvement, damn straight there is.

Please do not try and say you are not trying to do something when it is exactly what you are trying to do.




Go Texans and for one night only go Broncos beat the hell out of the flaming meatballs!

No matter what we think of these three guys, it'll all come out in the wash in another three or four years.

In the meantime, we have Mario and not Bush or Young, so I'm rooting for Mario.

If one of the other two eventually end up on the Texans, which will not be very likely, then I'll root for them. Until that happens however, Mario is the good guy and they are the enemy.

Rep on the way. This is exactly how I feel. I REALLY hate all this rehashing. If, If , If - live the reality you have.

lol...please explain to me how I diminish mario?????.....I'm looking at this from a "realistic" approach, and realistically there's no conclusive evidence that shows that he's been a better pick than VY or Bush thus far (if you look at both seasons)......if VY and Bush are bust in most of you guys eyes then Mario should be right there with them.


In all honesty this is what I expected Mario Williams to be when we first drafted him....an okay player.....not something worth the # 1 pick in a loaded draft.....he's had 2 good games this year against the lowly chiefs and saints and everyone is ready to throw a parade for the guy.........I'm just not falling into that trap....mario still seems to lack the passion at times, and at times he just doesn't look like he has the physical tools to be a great DL......Reggie Bush to me would be a valuable weapon as long as you have some sort of power runner to go along with him, and VY has a lot of natural talent and is trying to learn the hardest position in pro-sports with bad receivers............if Mario "turns out" to be worth that #1 pick then I'll be fine, but I just don't see it in dudes ability or passion.

Actually, you are right for not counting his rushing TD's with Passing TD's

TD's Total = 8 (5 pass, 3 rush)
INT's Total = 12




YUP!! That strikes fear into the heart of defenses.

anytime one player requires specific approaches to be applied to him when the opposing team is preparing is a player who "is" a difference maker and someone who they are "worried" about.....

couldn't the same be said about Mario? If we had safeties that were halfway decent and a CB not name D-rob to atleast come close to covering some guys .maybe to get our D-line another second or two?

All three have room to improve


I am not bashing but this is a team game(just like you stated with the other two examples, secondary needs the D-line and D-line needs the secondary

The ONLY time I cheer for RB is when the Saints play Colts, Jags and Titans! Then he is a necessary enemy.
