Default Film study - Mario Williams vs. Colts

A few had asked me to study (among other things) how Mario lined up this past year.

I've been in the process of going through all the screen shots of all the plays, starting with the Colts game (but didn't count on being so detailed as this) so I thought I might as well at least do one game.
....


There were things that other teams have to be concern with Mario in the line-up.
The Colts mostly tried to run away from him.
When they tried to run at him, the RB ended up having to cut back.

In the pass rush, there were a lot of times where Mario almost got to the QB (remember the thing we said that a QB - like Schaub - needs to get rid of the ball in 3 secs. - well, keep that in mind.)

Also, you will see that there were times they double and even triple team him.

OK, here goes:

2-TE set. MW at ROLB, again lining up very wide and was not involved in the play.LILB Cushing needs to get to his gap a little sooner.

2-18-IND 42 (14:24) (Shotgun) K.Collins pass short left to R.Wayne to IND 49 for 7 yards (D.Ryans).
2-TE set, however, RTE Clark lined up in the right slot.

Texans brought Manning up to the outside of Mario for a blitz (that forced Collins to throw a quick pass.)
Watt stunted to the outside, while Mario went inside.
He was picked up by the RG and then was also blocked by the RB.
This set Manning free.

1-10-IND 20 (6:57) (Shotgun) K.Collins pass incomplete short right to D.Clark.
MW at WILL; edge rushed but then bulled the RT toward the QB.
Watt pushed the RG onto the ground (hindering Mario's path.)
All this was good enough to forced Collins into a hurried/poor throw.

Barwin at SAM followed the TE.

2-10-IND 20 (6:52) J.Addai right end to IND 18 for -2 yards (J.Joseph, B.Cushing).
MW at WILL;
Colts ran away from him.

3-12-IND 18 (6:52) (Shotgun) PENALTY on IND-K.Collins, Delay of Game, 5 yards, enforced at IND 18 - No Play.

3-17-IND 13 (5:46) (Shotgun) K.Collins pass incomplete deep right to A.Collie.
MW at 43 WDE (LDE), edge rushed and ran the arc around the RT.
He would have gotten to Collins in about 3-1/2 secs (from behind) had Collins not let the ball fly.
A little late, but better than being neutralized.

Indianapolis Colts at 1:34

1-10-IND 20 (1:34) (Shotgun) K.Collins pass short left to R.Wayne pushed ob at IND 33 for 13 yards (K.Jackson). P4
With the Colts at their 20 and 1:34 to go in the half, Texans went to their dime package (4-man front and a single LB); they also played straight zone.
MW at SDE (RDE); TE released so MW edge/bull rushed the RT and would have gotten to Collins in about 2-1/2 secs.But the Texans zone was a little soft, allowing Collins to complete the quick pass.

1-10-IND 33 (1:29) (Shotgun) K.Collins pass incomplete short right to P.Garcon [A.Smith].
Same thing. This time, Collins saw Smith beating the RG and Mario coming around the RT.
He threw the ball away. (MW at 43 SDE).


2-10-IND 33 (1:24) (Shotgun) K.Collins pass incomplete short left to J.Addai.
MW at 43SDE like the previous plays.
Edge rushed but was neutralized by the RT.
Barwin at WDE forced the poor throw.

3-10-IND 33 (1:18) (Shotgun) K.Collins pass incomplete short middle to R.Wayne (G.Quin) [J.Watt].
Similar play as above. SDE Mario was neutralized by the RT.
This time, Watt beat the LG and forced the early throw.
WDE Barwin also did well against the LT
It took Quin to deflect the ball, however.

MW at 43 SDE, lining up outside the TE.
The Colts slowed him down by:
a. Running the TE across his face.
b. Having the RT picking him up.
c. Having Addai help cutting off the outside edge rush.


1-10-IND 48 (13:38) J.Addai left guard to 50 for 2 yards (J.Watt, T.Jamison).

They also ran Addai this way to get into Mario's way.

Collins stepped up the pocket and barely got the ball off.


1-10-HST 25 (11:39) (Shotgun) K.Collins pass incomplete short left to R.Wayne.
MW at 43 SDE.
He jammed and followed the TE on a short route as the Texans came in with a 5-man zone blitz. First drop into coverage by Mario.
Collins was looking first at Wayne, but he was doubled-up by Allen and Manning (invert cover 2 on that side; Manning can also jump on the TE if he runs a crossing route).
Quin played deep middle; he can help Mario on any deep route by the TE and also McCain in the slot.

2-10-HST 25 (11:31) J.Addai up the middle to HST 19 for 6 yards (B.Cushing, D.Ryans).
MW at 43 SDE.
They started by optioning Mario to run to the other side (left.)
Clark then came back to seal off Mario.
Texans cut off the POA; Addai cut back to outside RT.
Cushing did a decent job geting back (he overpursued a little.)
Mario had to make sure that the QB doesn't have the ball (possible bootleg here.)

3-4-HST 19 (10:49) (Shotgun) K.Collins pass incomplete deep right to P.Garcon.
Texans in nickel.
2-man line.
MW at WILL and Barwin at SAM (Demeco and Cushing at ILBs)

He couldn't wait and sailed a pass over Garcon who had beaten JJo in the right corner.

Thanks for the review, rep your way.

I know there's haters out there, maybe I'm missing the point, but Mario in the lineup that we had this year will be crazy.

By no means do I want to give up Arian, but we do have Tate... ugh... I hate salary caps.

I don't have any idea what you are trying to prove here but for the life of me I can't imagine why you would pick the colts. They were the worst team in the entire league! They had a starting QB that didn't even fully know the offense when we played them and if I remember correctly two OL starters out for that game. What could you possibly learn from that game that would be benificial?

You might as well be breaking down an allstar game.

I think he's going to break all the games that Mario played in this year, not just the Colts. You start with the first and it can set a pattern as to how teams line up against him which can show if he's being treated as a dominant player or just meh.

If he's dominant then what does a healthy Mario bring to the number 2 defense in the league?

Are we going to discount Barwin's 4 sack game in Jacksonville because Blaine Gabbert was the QB? If sacking Collins was so easy, why is Mario the only Texan with 2 Sacks?

I'm willing to pay Mario the same amount of money we pay Connor Barwin, Lucky.

My issue with Mario is not how he played vs. Indy the past few seassons. What concerns me is the way he played against New Orleans. Or, the dog of a game he had vs. San Diego last year... This isn't about statistics either. If you watch those games (and others), Mario can't be bothered to put forth effort. He doesn't chase down plays, go to the whistle, or pursue on the back side of plays like every other Texan defender does. That's not what the 2011 Texans' defense is about and that's why the Texans will cut him loose. At least, that's why they should.

Also, show me a game against a good tackle where he played well in the past three seasons... Against Miami (Jake Long), it was Barwin who beat Long for a sack, not Mario. Mario's underdeveloped catalog of pass rush moves and his frame that limits his ability to be a true speed rusher make him relatively easy prey for the better tackles in the league.

Thanks 76! I'd rep you more if I could!

I'm one (of several) that asked 76 if he could do a little studying of Mario for us. This is yet another huge offseason for the Texans and what we do with Mario clearly plays a SIGNIFICANT role in the direction our team goes.

I think most are in agreement that we're a better defense with Mario... the debate just gets into the cost of having him. Which I think is a really good debate and a tough one.

The thing with Mario is he's so versatile and a really good weapon for Wade. What I wanted to see most of all, and asked 76 to do, is see where Wade had Mario line up on each play. And as more games are analyzed we'll start to see a better picture of this: as a DE or OLB in 4-3 and 3-4 defense. His ability to play both DEs in the 3-4, both DEs in the 4-3 and both OLBs in the 3-4 is what makes him a little more valuable, to me, than I think most other fans.

I think this is the kind of stuff that Rick Smith & Co. are looking at to determine what direction they go in with Mario. Most fans see a $ sign and his "OLB" position and draw a conclusion. I think its much more complicated than that.

Let's see, Mario is a good pass rusher and it's hard to find those. Yet he hasn't played a full season in a while and is hurt one way or the other.

Arian is an outstanding runninback that has been nothing less than exceptional. However, the avg RB shelf life of success is around 4 years and Arian has had two and one with a nagging hamstring issue.......
