Default Who else thinks Mario is going to have an absolute monster year

I hope my gut is right but it is telling me that Mario Williams is going to have a HUGE season this year. I am talking about close to 20 sacks and being an unstoppable force. I think he will emerge as the premiere DE in the league.

Everything I have read says that he is destroying people in OTAs and hopefully at camp starting this week. I know people who know him and they say he is extremely motivated and dedicated to be the best in the league. I love to see it and I hope I am right.

I do feel positive about Mario's potential to have a great year. His success is such an important aspect of establishing a good defense.

Default Re: Who else thinks Mario is going to have an absolute monster year

i think mario's going to be considered for defensive player of the year. his flaw the first two seasons was his game speed - slow to read, slow to adjust, slow off the snap. not only did that improve incredibly last season, with the talks from coaches and players so far this offseason, noone's faster. the bandwagon is growing ... best "worst draft pick ever" EVER!

Default Re: Who else thinks Mario is going to have an absolute monster year

I'd like to see him just improve from last year...as for a monster year, that would be nice to see, as sack totals do not much mean he had monster year, but if he can command a double team alot, and open it up for some other teammates, then I am all for that...I will however take 20 sacks !

He doesn't have get 20 sacks though that would be nice. But if he is faster off the edge and draws two or three guys to defend him then that would allow his team mates to get their chances at getting some sacks.

Default Re: Who else thinks Mario is going to have an absolute monster year

I too think Mario is going to have a HUGE year and will be considered the best DE in the NFL. I'm not sure about his actual sack totals, but really hope they are high.

I think a lot of teams will be gameplanning for him and he will draw a LOT of attention from the other teams. That will help the other D-linemen. But it also sounds like Amobi is greatly improving- most improved says Kubiak. I think the combination of that + good depth at DT, Weaver hopefully being healthy and another threat with Colvin on passing downs is really going to help Mario too. That's what I love about the DL- Mario being so good is going to help the other players, but the other players are going to help Mario too.

Default Re: Who else thinks Mario is going to have an absolute monster year

I think Mario will have a great season but to me him having a monster year hinges upon what else is happening on the line. We need consistant pressure on the opposite side. Honestly I'm not counting much on Weaver but I hope Colvin, Bulman and Kalu can provide pressure by committe.

I do think we'll get good push up the middle from the DT's with whomever is rotating in.

Smith is going to also not be afraid to blitz or be aggressive early in the season.

If the other side is able to get any kind of P on the QB whatsoever then it may be a scary season for some AFC QB's.

With the tremendous speed we have at LBs this year, I think the Texans will bring the blitz a bit more than last year.

Demeco and Greenwood both run in the low to mid 4.6x

Thompson ran a 4.44 when he first enter the league.

Adibi runs in the high 4.6x

Moffitt actually runs under 4.60

Bentley ran a 4.74 out of Northwestern.
Diles may be the slowest in the bunch, I think his 40 speed is around 4.79

I don't know Colvin's actual speed, but he looks pretty fast and quick.

No idea how many sacks Mario will have, but I definitely think he will be a monster out there!
