Williams, despite some early struggles, has developed into a full-fledged stud at his position. Meanwhile, neither of the guys that the Texas were criticized for not taking, Reggie Bush and Vince Young, can say the same thing. Not yet, anyway.

Hindsight's 20/20 and everything, but ... the second-guessing might not be so easy to do if the initial criticism wasn't so harsh as well.

Sage Rosenfels has a decent game, and Andre Johnson was fantastic working underneath. The run game made all the difference in the world, too ... Ron Dayne and Darius Walker combined for 24 carries and 133 yards, while Selvin Young and Travis Henry managed just 18 carries for 61.
linky
What is lame is that we've been on Sunday Night Football multiple times, which is clearly a nationally televised game (19-10 anyone?). These fools do not know what they are talking about. Hindsight is 20/20 for everyone.

Default Re: All Hail Super Mario!!!

Before the last years draft I wanted us to take Vince or trade down. I knew I didn't want Bush and Mario wasn't even an option in my eyes. When they announced the Mario pick, I did some research and came to like the pick.

With Mario's slow start this year, I got real disgruntled and started to question the validity of picking Mario. I questioned Mario's desire to play the game. Mario wasn't firing off the ball hard, he had poor technique and really didn't show a lot of desire.

Since the start of the regular season until now, Mario has really turned things around. The guy looked like an animal out there. Firing off the line, hard charging and unstoppable.

Congrats to Mario, looking good!

Secret Challenge mode

Successfully complete the game. Start the cleared game file, then pause the game while at the world map and press L, R, L, R, X(2), Y(2). If you entered the code correctly, the message "Welcome to the Secret Challenge mode" will appear. Similar to the original Super Mario Bros. for the NES, Secret Challenge mode will not let you backtrack in certain levels. To indicate whether a level has a Secret Challenge version, the new right arrow icon will be lit in the top right corner of the map screen.

Rome just jumped on and said he really admires Mario and what he is doing after everyone, including himself, was just killing him. Good to hear national talk.

Not addressed to you in particular, but this is a classic example of why fans should not try to get in player's heads and make assumptions about desire or heart. Mario has just gone through the game slowing down process. Instead of thinking about what the coaches want him to do he is now deciding what to do.

Rome just gave a shout out to Mario again and and said "Speaking for the entire world, sorry we villified you" and made you out to be horrible before you stepped up on the field. He is playing like a faster Dwight Freeney. AND he is playing better than Bush and VY. Despite all the heat he has never lashed out or demanded an apology. You are a beast on the field and a class act off..............

Hilarious! Funny too how that rumor of it being all about signability didn't really start to die off until Reggie started sucking so much.

Though I can't claim omniscience, because I went back and forth on Reggie for quite awhile (anywhere from would suck completely to being a junior Brian Westbrook just not #1 caliber player) and at least at the time of that thread being written, he has sucked a lot more than I stated he would. I was also wrong about Carr making it in this league. Oh well.
