Default Re: Mario named AFC Defensive Player of the Week

I wouldn't worry about Mario not going to the pro bowl, he'll have plenty of pro bowls in the future. Besides, he can always console himself by getting a few more sacks in the last two games. That and counting the money in his bank account.

The AFC and NFC Probowl coaches each get 1 additional pick as a need I believe. Is this true and what are the chances they would pick Mario as a need player?

Why do you think guys like Antwann Odom and Travis Laboy have had such good years for us when they never had done much in the previous three? It's because they double Haynesworth and when you take away that guard/center combo on Haynesworth along with the tackle/back who are blocking KVB then they have one-on-ones all day. What I'm saying is, they're play is because the offense double teams both guys on the right side (Haynesworth and KVB) and leaves the other tackle and end alone. When Haynesworth went out they tripled (tackle/tight end/back, guard/tackle/tight end, etc.) KVB because they knew they didn't have to worry about the other three guys on the line. Is that a testament to KVB's ability or does it show how bad everyone else is on the line? I don't know. But KVB wasn't heard from when Haynesworth was out for that reason.

It's true, the coaches can choose and extra defensive end, linebacker, defensive back or long snapper. If Mario leads the conference or NFL in sacks, the head coach better call him up. He got scr*wed and should represent the Texans alongside DeMeco.

think about this- if Mario tears it up again, the Texans beat the Colts the pressure will be too great to ignore the NFL will have to find a way to put him on a flight to Hawaii

It would not shock me either way if he made it into the Pro Bowl or not. At this point, let it go ahead and be a snub, and just make them vote you in next year.

And now, everybody, look at this guy ->
