Default Mario Williams falling to #1 was a blessing

Long offseason but we're almost to the draft. I went back and found Michael A. Smith's article before the '06 draft concerning the Texans #1 pick. A good read, especially today.

Just for fun, I wanted to do a poll and see peoples reaction to the draft. It's said you can't really get a full grade on a draft until at least 3 years down the road. Well boys and girls, this will be the 3 year anniversary of the historic day... the day hell froze over, it rained cats & dogs, and pigs started flying.

Here's the read!

Its a No Brainer. Mario Williams was the best choice for the first pick even though ill admit i didnt like it cuz i wanted V. Young but im glad i was wrong. We thankfully didnt get a RB who cant run between the tackles and would fit WR better. And Vince still has to prove himself although i cant give up on the hometown boy as for Ferguson i realy hav no idea who he is or plays for.

Default Re: Mario Williams falling to #1 was a blessing

Well, I'm so happy we chose Mario. I think he's pretty much the total package. Great pass rusher, great run stopper, great teammate, great person, etc. I think he fits what the Texans want on the field, in the locker room, off the field and in the community absolutely perfectly. I think Mario Williams and Andre Johnson are the two players on the Texans that are or can be the best at their positions in the entire NFL. From a franchise building standpoint as well, they're the two players I'd choose at their respective positions before anyone else.

I think Mario needs to be a life long Texan (Houston Texan) and we've gotta do everything we can to keep him here in Houston. It's so hard to narrow my favorite player down to just one guy, but I think the way Mario conducts himself on and off the field puts him at the top of my list. How fitting this would be my 5,000th post!

Congrats on the 5000th, and double congrats for it being such common sense. Mario is our DE for the next ten years or so. He will go to the HOF, and he will be the first Texan inductee into the Texan (Bull)Ring of Fame.

That article is scarily good, considering the hostile Reggie loving atmosphere before the draft, and it is completely spot on.

The thing for me taht is important, is not Mario's on the field play. Everyone knows he is a beast on the field, and offenses have to scheme to make sure he doesn't ruin their day. The one thing that has impressed me over the last year is his head down, hardworking attitude, which will help our youngters and rookies keep their heads down, and keep players working hard, and behaving themselves off the field (its become a Texans philosophy in our short history to have 'good' guys).

Oh, and you KNOW when we're talking about the '06 draft its the offseason (or VY has been benched again...)!
