First, let me present the scenarios, then we can discuss. Somebody with game tapes, please help verify, thanks! The Texans recorded 25 sacks last year. At Steelers (2) Mario from RDE unblocked. Forced a fumble which Ryans recovered. Mario from RDE, missed assignment by the LT. At Jaguars (1) Mario at LDE chased Garrard into Chaun Thompson in the middle (C.T. originally came up the right side from RDE). Coverage sack, Actually Mario secured the tackle. Indy (2) Mario from LDE Mario from RDE Dolphins (2) Mario from LDE Mario from LDE Lions (2) Mario at LDE took on the double team, Diles got past the RB on the left side. Mario at LDE took on the double team, allowing Cochran to go outside left, forcing the QB Orlovsky up the pocket into Bulman Bengals (2) Mario from RDE, forced a fumble which Okoye recovered at the Texans 14 (on second and 2), saving a score. T.J. from RDT. Texans collapsed pocket. at Vikings (3) Mario at LDE took on the double team, allowing Cochran to stunt to the outside left Bulman from RDE, with Mario following from LDE Mario from LDE Ravens (3) Cochran from RDT, with Mario at RDE Bulman from LDE. Coverage sack. Bentley from SAM Jags (3) Mario from LDE Mario from RDE dropped back into coverage, then came up. Coverage sack. Mario from RDE Packers (2) Bulman from LDT, stunted to outside RG. Mario was at LDE. Ryans up RG. Mario was at LDE Raiders (1) Okoye from LDE unblocked. Bears (2) Mario from LDE Barber up RG, with Mario at RDE, perhaps influencing. Mario had 12 sacks, 6 from each side. However, 2 from the right side were unblocked, plus one miss-assignment by the LT. So, by himself, Mario was more effective on the left side. The other 13 were divided quite evenly 5 from the left, 4 up the middle, 4 to the right, with the ones in the middle leaning right. This also seems balanced. However, 4 of them came about with Mario forcing at LDE. There again, Mario showed his effectives from the left side. The rest of the Texans, on their own, was more effective on the right side. It can be argued that if you want to keep Mario on one side, it should be at LDE, where he'd been creating more havoc. Draft a RDE or a DT who can force action up the middle. But let's assume that Shaun Cody will beef up the middle a bit better than Zgonina, and perhaps Okoye and T.J. will improve inside, maybe Okam, too. But it can also be argued that, since the rest of the Texans are weak on the left, while Mario can be effective anywhere, then we should draft a LDE. Well, that's where Antonio Smith is supposed to help out, isn't he? So, I think we can argue left and right about "left or right", how about BPA at DE? What's your take?
