Default Pat Kirwan on the Texans

Anyone regularly following the podcasts on HT.com knows Pat Kirwan was at camp the past couple of days. Here is his article from NFL.com on what he saw. Reading his take on Mario is very encouraging and I cannot wait to see him in some live game action.

Yeah, I was going to be on air with them for a minute, but the way the schedule played out, it didn't happen.

Remember this comment:

http://sportsbybrooks.com/carson-pal...e-in-nfl-25962

Quote:
“Guys are getting so big, so fast, so explosive,” Palmer said. “The game’s so violent. Now that they’re cutting out the wedge deal on kickoff returns, those guys [are] coming free, and at some point somebody is going to die in football. And I hope it’s not anyone at this table, and I hope it doesn’t happen, obviously. Everyone talks about the good old days, when guys were tough and quarterbacks got crushed all the time, but back in the day, there weren’t defensive ends that were like Mario Williams; 6-7, 300 pounds, 10 percent body fat, running a 4.7 40.

“The game has changed, the game is getting bigger, faster, stronger, and there needs to be more protection. If I weren’t a quarterback, I would be mad about the rules. If I were a safety or a defensive back, I would be mad about the new rule that you can’t hit your helmet above their shoulder pads or whatever it is because it does take some of the ferociousness out of the game, but somebody is going to get seriously hurt, possibly die.
Combined with this from Kirwan:

Quote:
"Now he gets a running start at you, explodes into you and then makes his move," offensive tackle Eric Winston said of Williams. "He's harder to block now than ever before."

Defensive end Antonio Smith added, "Mario now realizes that he can bull rush anybody, and he's playing like a guy that can dominate every play."
I dont know if I should be excited or concerned.

Mario is physically frightening already and I can't even think of what is going through QB's minds at the thought of him getting a running start and rushing the QB. If he has the type of season we expect he is going to be very rich man this off season.

Mike Brown is a more menacing football persona than Mario Williams.

On the bright side, if Mario Williams does kill somebody, then at least we can put that "soft team" label to rest.

Just an FYI for anyon ewho's not familiar with Pat Kirwan. He is a former New York Jets Director of Player Administration and current CNNSI contributor. Now Kirwan writes as a senior analyst for NFL.com along with hosting the Sirius XM NFL Radio show known as Movin' the Chains.

Usually a very solid source of information and definitely knows his stuff.

Hey, hey now! We'll have no more of that Widow Maker talk. No one gets hurt or even hit hard in my new, modern-day, safety-first, wuzzified NFL. Don't make me fine this message board.

And he was one of the first guys saying it was a bad idea to put Mario at OLB when the news first broke. For him to change his story means there is something there.
