Default Bears wary of Texans' Williams

http://www.dailyherald.com/story/?id=260430

Quote:
Bears offensive left tackle John St. Clair has generally been solid this season, but he has also struggled against top-flight pass rushers at times - including the Vikings' Jared Allen, who had 4 sacks in two games against the Bears.

St. Clair faces another daunting task Sunday when he faces Houston's 6-foot-6, 283-pound defensive right end Mario Williams, who leads the Texans with 11 sacks.

"He's very special, but it's the same thing for me every week with a lot of these tough guys," St. Clair said. "I kind of compare him to (the Panthers') Julius Peppers or somebody like that. He's a tall, fast guy off the edge, so it'll be a tough challenge."
Quote:
Bears 6-foot-4, 260-pound defensive end Adewale Ogunleye said he noticed right away that the Texans' defensive end was a different player than himself.

"I met him one time in Houston," Ogunleye said. "I was just like, 'I'm a defensive end and he's a defensive end,' but it looked a little weird because he's extremely big and strong. He's young, so his best is yet to come. He's got all the talent."

Super Mario: Case Closed

Flash back to the 2006 NFL Draft. The Houston Texans have the first pick. An absolutely horrible 2-14 team had a need at virtually every position. Could they have used a Heisman Trophy winning, highly touted, human highlight reel at running back? Of course. Did they need a possible franchise quarterback; a Houston native who was carrying with him an insurmountable level of local popularity, as he skated in fresh off of a BCS National Championship? You bet.

But instead, they "gambled." They went for the boom-or-bust pick, the one that didn't sit well with most fans and experts. The Houston Texans chose to select a 6'7", 290-pound man-child at defensive end. His name was Mario Williams, and after much debate, it's now safe to say that they chose wisely.

Mario Williams' 29.5 career sacks don't say enough about what he means to a football team. After he was drafted, it was a known fact that it would take some time to mold his abilities and harness his freakish skill level. However, the impact he is having this quickly is the type of thing that people only hoped for at the time.
