Re: The Mario Issue, Let's look at it in another way

In 1 we get probably nothing or do we get compensation because we do not sign as we did with Dunta. Last pick in draft. LOL

In 2 same as 1

In 3, do you want to give Mario say 20+ million for the next 5 years based on his last year of performance. Say the cap is 120 million. If you divide in half, half for offense and half for defense, do you really want to give Mario 33% of all money for defense? I sure don't. DO YOU?

In reality probably no player is worth that large of % of cap. Maybe Peyton or Brady etc QBs of that caliber may be the only position that warrants that and even then it is a crap shoot because of injury.

The above is why I think IF you can get a good deal in a trade this year you do it.

It is very likely that other teams view Mario in the same way and will give nothing for him this year. I don't know. But if there are teams out that that covet him I think it should seriously be considered by the Texans.

I don't think Aso is a good deal based on reasoning above.
Just my opinion. "

12/20/11

Here we are almost exactly 8 months from the above post. Took a lot of negative hits from this thread I started. Here we are now and where do we stand? It was my feeling that no matter what happened we would be in a bad place with Mario once the season was over.

I am reading on other threads that we trade Mario now for this and/or that. Someone please explain how we do this? Isn't he a free agent? I think we missed our chance to get something of value for MW. I still thinks he WALKS with us getting nothing but the PITY pick/consolation pick/Dunta pick etc.

Why do I think we get nothing? I don't think we can " non-exclusive " franchise and expect anyone to offer anything for Mario if it means them giving up high round draft choices. I don't think we outright franchise him because he is not worth what we would need to pay him. We can transition tag him but correct me if I am wrong, if we don't match we get nothing.

Anyone watch the game last night. Anyone see Aldon Smith. Anyone think Mario is better. I am sure there are.

Somebody make me feel better and explain how we come out of this deal whole.

I can't help but think where this team would be now if a trade would have been made and we had a real 1b WR and another real CB.

The great teams stay great by always increasing overall talent VALUE. We will lose overall value if we keep Mario or we lose overall value if we let Mario walk.

I really am ecstatic with the Texans season. It may not seem like that but I am. I just have this feeling that we could be a whole lot better if a trade was made.

You asked for it and there it is.

I think the outcome of this Mario situation will be a major factor in the future of the Texans. I think the best outcome has passed us by. That being trading him while we still had rights. We rolled the dice but my feelings were they would come up snake eyes no matter what in reference to long term. Our best situation would have been for him to play like Bruce Smith and stay healthy and help us go deep in playoffs .

Someone again please explain how we trade him and get something for him in the off season. I am just not seeing it.

My son and I watched an entire Texans game in about an hour a few weeks ago.
It's the home games that bother me. I wish we could fast forward while in person.

Hey with TO's money issues he would take anything right now and the guy is a physical freak and has had a public workout why not at least kick the tires and see what he can do for the playoffs or and this is a longshot, Randy Moss as they stated that he was in the best shape of his NFL career at the start of the season. Randy stated that a playoff caliber team would peak his interest those would be the 2 I would at least call up to see if they would have interest and i'm sure they could do better than Jacoby Jones & Slow ass Kevin Walters.

yeah, I know how it feels. I hated all the down time between plays at games. The ebb and flow were constantly jacked up because of tv timeouts. Dudes just standing on the field waiting for some remote producer to give the game officials a green light to proceed.

having to go through those psuedo security/ hand waving near your body pat down searches that have now been 'hightened' to include metal detecting wands. This is the biggest waste of time on gameday.

Please quit 'posing' like there is some kind of security, and making the entrance even longer and more aggrevating than it already is.

those wands don't even detect the cellphones, car keys, wristwatches, etc that ARE already being brought in every game.

HELLO, its called PLASTIC Explosives.

Is it too late to add piss-poor officiating to this list?
