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

Kubiak was quoted in the Chronicle Sunday that he hadn't been around anyone better in the offseason. Having said that, let's see if that carries over to camp and on into the season. I'm pumped about the possibility that he could have truly breakout season. Let's see how it plays out. Can't wait!

I'm not sure how much blitzing we will do. I think with the uncertainty back in the secondary, he might not blitz nearly as much as you guys think. My hunch is that he is going to try to rely on the front 4 to provide most of the rush, with an occaisonal 5th rusher from the LB position.

I think Mario's year will be another step forward. His improvement should decrease the pressure on the secondary. Allowing for more exotic defensive calls due to teams having to gameplan just for him. IMO 17.5 sacks

Can't remember whether I heard it or read it but remember hearing that the Texans were NOT going to blitz much this year.

Probably heard it on 610 and I don't remember the reasoning WHY but I do remember hearing that.

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

I am thinking 5 sacks, all in game 1 vs. Pittsburgh. After that, every team changes the game plan to run only and run whatever side Mario is not. We hold every team to less than 125 combined yards per game due to playing 10 opposite Mario.

I for one am not going to pile-up sky-high expectations for Mario. He had
enough of that crap his rookie year.
I just hope he stays healthy, and if so I'm confidant everything will fall in place for him.

That's not what they said..I am sure of that. Now how they know that I do not remember. I can't even remember WHO said it..probably John McClain. And I remember thinking that surprised me.

If Mario can get to double digit sacks and improve upon deflections, hurries and tackles I will be very happy. I want a better defensive unit no matter where the production comes from.

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

I have this strange feeling that he is going to be unstoppable this year.

Its the first time I've felt this way about a Texan player. Im usually so reserved in my excitement, as a way of hoping not to be disapointed. This year, I really feel like Mario is going to shine.

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

Do I think the defense will get more sacks.......yes. Do I think Mario will get 14 or more again.....no. I think he will be in the 11-12 range though. I see two things happening, a more balanced rush attack so the sacks get a bit more spread out and teams really knowing that Mario is the real deal and doing a better job of planning for him which sort of plays to the more balanced sack numbers because they are using more of their efforts to keep Mario off of the QB thereby giving others an easier path.
