Congrats Mario! Pro Bowl will come next year if he continues the great play. hopefully the snub will only give him more of a chip on his shoulder.

Default Re: Mario named AFC Defensive Player of the Week

Mario's pissed about NOT going to Hawaii, but god help the next poor SOB to run at him with a football. Who's that guy from here in the Houston area who plays for the Colts? He clowned the Texans D last time they squared off. I hope Mario & Demeco take out Mario's snub on him whenever he has the ball. Mario & Luigi...on the ATTACK BABY!

Mario plays up when he's pissed. Hopefully this means he will play well this weekend. The Texans will need Mario to give a repeat performance of last week if they hope to beat the Colts.

Let's hope Mario can get Addai in the backfield at least once. Manning, too.
And on to Garrard (if he plays) and maybe Taylor and MJD.
Then we can hope for the All-Pro team.

Vanden Bosch is a good player, and one that I actually like on that Tennessee team, but he doesn't command the double teams that Mario gets, and his stats are not as good as Mario's.

Woot! Good job, Mario.

Mario Williams is perhaps the most under-rated defensive player in the league.

Default Re: Mario named AFC Defensive Player of the Week

It may look like a huge snub, but most of the voting was over before his most dominant performance of the season, and most of the fan voting was complete prior to his late season surge. Go back 3 or 4 weeks and how many were genuinely thinking Mario would go to the pro-bowl?

Pro-bowl candidature is really a measure of the first two thirds of the season which is clearly a flawed measurement, but hopefully he can use this as motivation to play well throughout the entire season next time around.

I think he's the 2nd or 3rd alternate which means he's probably not gonna go unless the guys in front of him start dropping like flies.

This is really exciting. Mario is really going to be pinning his ears back going for Peyton all day on Sunday.

Anyone remember when the NBA crowned David Robinson MVP and then Olajuwon schooled his @ss in the playoffs? Let's hope Mario takes his frustrations out on Peyton.
