Deuceís Ramblings: Sam Bowie he ainít

Posted on January 22nd, 2008 by Deuce Dale

Let us rewind to two years ago and the days leading up the NFL draft, everyone was talking about the USC Running Back and Heisman trophy winner Reggie Bush was the prospect that only comes along once in a lifetime, Vince Young, fresh off his outstanding one man show in the BCS Championship, with his freakish talent were canít miss prospects. Ohya and a guy named Matt Leinhart (two time NCAA National Champion and Heisman trophy winner), were all available to any lucky team.

Suddenly someone dominated at the combine, a man named Mario Williams. He was extremely talented and dazzled the scouts leading to him shooting up the draft boards. I remember not knowing why? So he had a good combine. Anyone remember Mike Mamula? He played at Boston College and in the 1995 draft the Eagles traded up with Tampa Bay to gain the pick. (Just so you know, Tampa took future hall of famer, Warren Sapp). Mamula was relatively unknown but starred at the combine and shot up draft boards.

Mario Williams was the same. Every single highlight package I saw from him, he was running around a Maryland right tackle (who probably is competing in hot dog eating contests) consistently.

Everyone thought Houston Texans was going to take Mario Williams. And a strange thing happened the night before then Texas GM Charlie Casserly signed Mario Williams and he would be the #1 pick over Reggie Bush. I was in shock

The first year was a disaster for the Texans. The team was terrible, Mario Williams had 4.5 sacks and the GM and coach were gone at the end of the year

The first year was a disaster for the Texans. The team was terrible, Mario Williams had 4.5 sacks and the GM and coach were gone at the end of the year.

Really, I didn't realize Rick Smith and Gary Kubiak (the GM and Coach during Mario's first season) were both gone at the end of the season!? I think this guy needs to get his facts straight before writing a weak article about a controversial subject that most people in the national dodge or dismiss.
