First of all, that's nowhere close to being a real scenario. Watt is locked up on a first round contract for quite some time and he will be regardless what happens with Mario.

But in your completely unrealistic, hypothetical ... Watt. Interior penetration is much harder to come by and is very important. Edge rushers are somewhat easier to get, even if you can't get one of Mario's caliber. Watt is going to be a force for a long time.

Both, I'd let Arian or some other O player walk before giving either of them up.

Long term I would.

RBs have a much shorter shelf life than defensive players and I believe you need talent on D more than O because scheme makes more of a difference on O.

Instead of Mario losing weight to play OLB, if he maintained/gained 10 or so pounds, he and Watts would crazy good as 3-4 ends with BArwin and Reed as 3-4 OLBs.

Speaking of 3-4 ends, what on earth happened to Smith once Mario got injured.

Let's cut him and use his money to pay Arian.

I may be changing my vote. I think outside pass rushers are more valuable, but I've never seen Mario take over a game the way JJ Watt has as a rookie.


& I love me some Mario.

Watt, no doubt. Younger, smarter, more energetic, and healthier.

And yes there is a #90 jersey in my closet.
