Default Mario Williams looked good.

I'll be the first to say it since I was one of the biggest critics of moving him. he looked pretty OK today. I'm not sure what Indy thought they were doing when they asked Clark to block him, but at least he took advantage of it and got the sacks.

i did predict over 16 sacks in one of these threads.

Default Re: Mario Williams looked good.

Yah, he did look good... still didn't look where he should be, but I thought he did well considering his experience at the position...

We also saw him in the three-pt stance a lot more today than in the preseason, and I feel Wade still didn't pull out the whole book overall... this move should work out in the end if you're not expecting Mario to be a top three OLB (not saying he won't be, just saying if you had the highest of expectations, you're more likely to be dissapointed)...

Two sacks and a lot of pressure. I knew he'd show up eventually. Glad it turned out to be the first game.

Mario has played injured a lot over his career. Getting down in the trenches where the real hurt happens and toughing through injuries for damn near every single game doesn't add up to low effort, IMO.

People who think Mario should be traded are just .... well, let's just say there's a reason they don't make decisions in the NFL. Even dumbass Casserly had the good sense to draft the guy.

I dunno, if you could have gotten a great deal of talent for it with a high draft-pick added, it wouldn't be a horrible decision (though maybe not the best)... but with little time to work on a positive trade (lockout) and the fact the dude is a freak, why not try him out? If nothing else he can be used inside etc...

I was pro-keeping Mario because he kept showing improvement, even through today, but if there's any chance to make this team better you take it... I didn't see that happening, and refused to press the panic button on Willio Mariams...

Maybe you saw him down more because he actually played an entire game?

Exactly!


#1: Why put mario in a 3-pt during practice/preseason when the dude's been coming out of that for about a decade (just including college+nfl)?

#2: as I pointed out in Mario-bashing threads during the preseason, the dude didn't even play a full three quarters the first two games...

the guy improved week to week during the preseason... add that to the fact that a top-notch defensive coordinator (IMO) was continuing to show faith in him at the position and there was no need to panic! Concern? I can see that! But calling the "Mario won't work out" shot so early? a tad premature...

Nice that he got the two sacks but he should have against a TE. Clark didn't want anything to do with him and just tapped him on the shoulder as he blew past him.......

and he did, and that's all that matters... won't be the last time someone sticks a TE against Mario, and he'll have a shot to abuse that TE as well...

yep thats part of the mismatch that Wade and Kubiak have been talking about. Moving him around to gain mismatches a majority of the time.

and who's fault was that? Mario did exactly what he needed to do, abuse the TE and sack the QB What more do you need in those situations? Are we gonna start picking other OLB's sacks apart becasue they were blocked by a TE?

Of course... that is if you're over-critiquing that OLB...

Mario had a good game and I thought he killed Collins for sure on that 2nd sack.

I bet Reed doesn't make that play.

Mario is a mismatch on TEs and because he's going to move around a lot on Wade's defense he's going to find poor TEs in front of him a lot more this season.

I saw him at the Ryans charity bowling event and told him Kerry Collins is a racist. True story.
