if the texans intended on letting him walk just like that, they would be shopping him around right now, and not coddling his ass.

It's funny you mention that because the Giants are a team I was thinking could be trade partners next year.

I think Mario will do well this season. Next offseason, the organization will franchise him and then attempt to work on signing him to a long term deal. If it's going to be extremely difficult to sign him they will seek a trade. But my prediciton is he's on our roster next season after being franchised and a longterm deal is made.

Not sure about NY, but I put the chances at 66% that he will be somewhere else just like Carr was after Kubiak had him a year. At least this time they haven't signed him to an extension.

I think he has 8-10 sacks and the team franchises him and he gets shipped.

Default Re: Mario Year 2012 predictions.

If we trade with anyone, I don't think it would be the Giants. Lots of talks of how stacked they are at DE.

My dark horse would go to the Lions or the Bucs, but surely the Lions. They seem to be building their D around their line, and Vanden Bosch surely is getting too old to keep it up.

Could you imagine how scary a d-line would be with Williams, Suh, and Fairley, and Vanden Bosch? Ouch

i was thinking the lions as well, but with the stafford contract, and suh and johnson they would have to tap out their $$ on mario. not much of a team after that. no rb, no secondary.
TB seems like they would be primed to make a run, but im assuming he would rather stay with the texans than do TB.

hes been one of the top pass rushers, but if he hits the market i see him being the highest paid defensive player in the league. hes not worth that much.

mario will make HUGE money on the market. otherwise he should be getting locked up already

Definitely true. But since they've already got their QB/WR/RB and a decent enough line (Lions fans have been saying there wasn't as much pressure on Stafford as the media made it out to be), I would guess they would want to focus on the D now.

It's a ton of money to tie up into one group, but if you were going to focus all your money in one area of D, why not the part that has the biggest impact on games? They've already shown they want absolutely nothing to do with a talented secondary, and Vanden Bosch won't be too long before he retires. I'd say it would be an all-in move for a massive SB push.

Also he will have some minor injury that keeps him from playing to 100%.
Wade will have variations that get Mario into his old position basically but he will still be called on OLB to help everyone save face.

Hopefully Mario will stay healthy have a great contract year and the Texans franchise and trade him.

if it were up to bob, we would probably still be trotting carr out there. difference between mario and carr is that mario has actually produced. bob can be loyal to a fault and you should know that.

Lol, silliest thing I've read yet concerning this whole Mario deal...

The only reason they'd be able to "save face" by calling Mario an OLB would be if Mario did well in those "variations that get Mario into his old position... basically"... I think if Mario does well period, whether it be from his old position or wherever, no one (who is reasonable anyway) would care what he is called, why he is called that or who called him that...

I think what he is saying is that Mario will have his hand down more times than not, but they'll still call it a 3-4 & they'll still call Mario an OLB.

Default Re: Mario Year 2012 predictions.

This how i break it down:


The new scheme with a competent DC alone = 2 sacks
Better talent all around him = 2 sacks
Mario skill set = 5 - 7 sacks

So the way i see it, dude will be anywhere between 9 - 11 sacks.
