Default HT.com - Mario, D-line reaching next level

I wanted to post this because they mention a nickname for the D-line which I really like..."Trench Dawgs". Maybe it will stick.

Default Re: HT.com - Mario, D-line reaching next level

Personally, I don't care what they call each other. I'm just happy they are starting to play as unit, with a chip on their shoulder, and finally recognizing the "new franchise" label is over. These guys are the foundation of a new beginning, with a different attitude, and outstanding outlook on dominating. The line of the past would have settled for the $$$ and lining up on the sidelines making excuses for the loses. These guys are taking accountability and not settling for losing. When Mario says he's not happy with the past performance and his remembering what the city and fans did to him when drafted, will make his motor run for a long time.

I'm a little worried. Remember Dunta said Mario is the kind of guy who excels, when people are dog'n him, and he encouraged more and more people to push Mario.

I wonder how he'll respond, when everybody is on his side.

The only one on his side is now the city of Houston and it's fans, which can change with two bad games....lol From a national stand point, he is taking a beating from the national media likes, radio personalities, and other players around the league, thinking it is way to early to make this guy a great one. This is enough to keep him motivated. After he reaches success, where it is widely understood he is the best, he will want to keep it. Stars want to remain in the sky, only meteors want to fall.

Default Re: HT.com - Mario, D-line reaching next level

On that video, Mario is sort of an ass in his replies to the questions. Heck, a few times he was stopping just short of being openly rude.

Maybe he was tired and ready to go. I can understand if that was the case. Plus, the questions were a little dorkish. "How good can this team be?" was not exactly a good question, to tell you the truth. Still, I was surprised that Mario was acting somewhat aggravated by the whole session.

Amobi, though, seemed to be cordial.

Things I saw in the Camp Day 3 video:

1. Amobi had some nice hand moves, which got him past the blocker.

2. Chaun Thompson was around the edge verrry quickly...which bodes well for our outside pass rush opposite Mario.

3. The defensive guys were all swarming to the ball carrier and repeatedly and viciously trying to strip the ball while yelling and basically looking like a bunch of sharks on a feeding frenzy. I bet the coaches are trying to make this into an instinct so that it's just pure habit come game day. I don't remember seeing this sort of raw, frantic ball stripping THIS early in last year's camp videos.

Mario gets asked the SAME questions every time.

"What do you think of so and so's article, rankings, etc."

Mario: "I don't care."
