    Who is this blasphemer? Ian Rapoport? Looking at his bio, I see he's a New Englander and therefore hates all things Texan. Now lives in Dallas, which is proof that it is not actually in Texas. And once covered the Crimson Tide, so he is still upset over the DeMeco trade. A hater.

    Yikes, I think I was channeling GP.

    I agree, but it may not show up on the stats. I think Mario is going to get 10 plus, but his team mates are going to really rack up the sacks/tackles.

    I think he's going to play like he did his senior year in college. He's going to raise havoc & play behind the line, the other three guys on that line (a pretty talented bunch) are going to go off.

    Teams will eventually try to pay more attention to those guys & Mario is going to have some 3 & 4 sack games near the end of the season.

    But I don't see the Bills winning the division. My "surprise" pick for 2012, Seahawks.

    The Seattle Seahawks will win the NFC West & show up in the NFC Championship game.
