Casserly gave Antonio Smith a glowing review yesterday on 610 calling him "one of the most underrated defensive ends in the NFL this year".

Because casserly drafted Mario and everyone knows the only reason smith has looked good is because of Mario.

You know someone is going to say it and believe it.

Actually, I was going to say; time & time again, Casserly has proven he doesn't know shit.

I'm not an Antonio hater, just don't care for Casserly. FYI there is another thread where football outsiders has Antonio as the highest graded DE in the league. That's saying something for a 3-4 DE.

No mario no worries for the O-Line and no sacks for smith.

I wonder how often we blitzed prior to Mario going down. It just "seems" that Antonio, JJWatt, & Connor were causing more havoc when Mario was in the game.

Default Re: Antonio Smith?

Antonio is still getting a great rush, he's just not hitting the QB. I agree with LZ to some extent it is the scheme and not necessarily Mario. After all Mario has been with him for 3 years. I do think however that more teams are focusing on Antonio with Wade's scheme now. There's no surprise that Mario was coming after the QB > 95% of the time. Now you only need one blocker on Reed/Barwin

I don't agree with LZ's premise at all. It would be like saying Foster & Schaub are as good as they'll be without Andre on the field.

Bot Schaub & Foster are doing well (Foster is doing amazing) without Aj on the field. But when Andre comes back, the game is going to be much easier for everyone on the offense.

Same thing with Mario. Antonio has definitely stepped up his game from the last three seasons. But when Mario is on the field, his job gets a lot easier. When Mario was playing this year, Antonio was getting 1 sack per game. How many has he had since? I bet his QB pressure numbers have gone down as well, since they go hand-in-hand with the sack numbers.

When Mario was playing, you saw a lot, from the front 5, even Cody got a sack. Without Mario, we've seen a lot more of Cushing pressuring the QB, you've seen more safeties going after the QB... That's Wade, adjusting his system.

Bottom line, ask Wade Phillips if he'd rather have Mario in the game or not.... I've got a pretty good idea how he would answer the question.

& this is in no way a jab or an insult to Antonio anymore than wanting AJ back is any slight to Schaub or Foster.

Why do you think I put "OLBer" in parentheses. Jeez you Mario fan boys will go above and beyond the call of duty to discredit any player just to serve your cause.. These other players play for your team too.

Fact is, Reed is the one who came off the bench to answer the bell when Mario went out (who really gives a crap about "what side he plays on"?)...and Reed is just as productive, if not more (he's much more active against the run). So I guess that totally dispels the crap argument that we can't do crap without Mario and he is the lone force that makes this defense go huh.

This thread really has nothing to do with Antonio Smith doesn't it? It's really about people believing and acting like we can't function or play at a high level without Mario Williams.

Yes he is which makes his numbers even more impressive. He was all over the field today. Got a lot of pressure on the QB and should of had two sacks instead of one but was blatantly held.
