ur the one that said mario would remain to be a decoy, remain means the past. Plus mario is learning a new position, and since mario and Antonio line up on the same side a lot is it really any surprise that antonio is getting in the back field so oftne now ???? seriously do the math

Umm...actually I'm not the one who said "he would remain a decoy". In fact I NEVER said that at all, hell nobody in this thread ever said that. (So where are you getting this "remain means the past" stuff from?)

Thunderkss is the one who is acting like the only reason why this dline is getting off is just because of Mario being on the field, despite not getting results on the field (Yep has nothing to do with super talented J.J. Watt or Smith straight beasting)...that's the definition of the "decoy excuse" that Saints fans used for Bush. Would love to see where you got the "he will remain to be" line from...I would greatly appreciate it if you didn't stick words in my mouth. Thank you.

Mario has never lived up to being the first pick in the draft. But considering Bush and Sausage Boy, he was a good pick. And without him, the defense isn't as good.

And this is something I 100% agree with. He was absolutely the right pick over those two players and the defense wouldn't be as good without him.

ok but answer me this, do you think Mario lining up on the same side as him has anything to do with Smith already having 3 sacks ?

Has something to do with it...yes, but not the main thing or remotely close to the main thing. Go watch a replay of tonights AFC matchups (or whatever they call that show on NFLN) that aired tonight. They broke down some of Smith's sacks. One was J.J. Watt running a stunt where he drew a double team off of Antonio Smith, which broke him lose to sack the QB. Hell I'll go as far to say J.J. Watt has had a bigger impact on Smiths sacks than Mario Williams

Sorry, but it's extremely naive to act like the only reason why Antonio Smith (or anybody else on this defensive line) has been able to produce is because Mario Williams is on the field....especially since Smith has been gang busters since the first preseason game while Mario has struggled. Give the guy his freaking props...Smith is creating a LOT of his own opportunities also. He's having a pro bowl caliber year and yet everybody wants to write it off.

Well then I'm glad, because I'm tired of arguing.


I never said Mario Williams was a crap player. You can be a quality player on this defense without being the best defender on this defense. If we want to field the type of defense that many of us hope for...we need to have more of that. (quality players at multiple positions....now we just need a quality #2 corner and a NT to complete the puzzle)
