Default Where Is MARIO.....?

We can blame Kubiak and Kris Brown but the biggest problem in this game was NO PASS rush. VY ran all over these guys because of ZERO containment. Mario was no where to be found. Even on the stupid option plays where the def end is contain on the VY, he was no where to be found.

Mario has one move and thats running around the block. If he can't out quick the tackle, he'll never make the sack.

I really want to believe that his injury is worse than they are letting on. He needs to start making some game changing plays, pressure and run stopping every so often is SOLID but we need him to make some sacks and force some fumbles a lot more than what he's doing right now.

Mario may be a good DE in this league, but a pass rusher or "game changer" he is not.

But to answer your question, if I were trying to find Mario I woul start six yards behind the quaterback, he spends more time there than the opposing teams half back.

Default Re: Where Is MARIO.....?

I like what Steve Young said. Paraphrasing, but he said there are good players on this team, but no leaders. There is no anger. There is no getting "mad and saying 'tonight we have to make it happen." He's right. Just a guess, but I can only hope there is half the anger in the locker room than there is here.

I love the guy, and wish he was finding a way to be successful, but opposing teams have the bull / speed rush to the outside figured out and just let him run himself out of the play everytime. Until he finds another move, don't look for big sack numbers.

A few games ago the talking heads were saying M Williams had a shoulder injury that would bother him until next season. Not sure if it is correct but ...

I can't recall Williams getting 1 sack ever against Roos. He is an All Pro for a reason.

Williams is a good DE, but Roos gives up like 1-2 sacks per year.

Mario was in the backfield quite a bit, but it was immediately followed by VY running for a first down.

Default Re: Where Is MARIO.....?

thats just it tho pass rushing does not work on VY becasue most of the time u go into a half circle around vince pushing the Left tackle into the guard and either stepping back or going hard Left would have been much better IMO then the traditonal way


I think from a style point Conar barwin should have been in there hes much faster then Mario

i just think they should have had a better scheme for stopping VY from running on us after the bye and all

I don't recall stating anything. If you read above, you'd see that I said I can't recall him getting a sack, not that he never has.
