    Mario Williams will be with Mayor Annise Parker today. He's donating 3 Camaros to HPD's Traffic Enforcement Dept "to blitz speeders". Uh-oh.


    Now every time you get a ticket , you can blame Mario lol.

    Turns out that it was 5 Chevrolet Camaros.

    well if the Camaros are anything like Mario they'll only be working about half the time and when they are working they'll rarely hustle.

    He met with Parker and is giving cops more cars to play tax collector in instead of actually protecting the public, Not just one reason, two more reasons.

    LOL, I think it's great of him. He did this last year too - I think he donated like 6 camaros to the Houston Police Department.

    Better than HPD and/or us the taxpayer having to pay for new cars!

    Even though Wade says differently?

    Think Shawn Merriman in San Diego & Demarcus Ware in Dallas.

    Neither dropped into coverage very often.

    CMIII doesn't drop into coverage often...... they basically play the "wide 9" like Babin in Philly.

    Calling them Line Backers isn't technically correct as they are pass rushers more than anything. Just like he was as a 4-3 DE.

    I don't know why people believe this. Wade's defense is basically a 4-3 maybe even more of a 5-2. The OLB's are almost always coming, but the position Mario plays he comes 95% of the time. That's by scheme not by player skill. Before Wade even got to install his D he said Ware dropped back on 5% of the time when he was with Dallas and said Mario would be playing the same role. If you even look at traditional 3-4's, there is a primary rush OLB that comes almost every time while also having very limited coverage skills. Tamba Hali, Terrell Suggs, James Harrison, Cameron Wake, Brian Orakpo, etc. Those guys are some of the best players in the league because they can get after the QB, you don't have to disguise if they are coming or not because they are that much of a force

    That is good on Mario. This story reminds of the time he stupidly posted a video of himself driving 100 mph on a NC freeway with his girl screaming in the passenger seat. Guess he's grown out of that phase in life.
    I actually met Mario through a friend who is an HPD officer. Little known fact that Mario volunteers his time to going on police rides and is some sort of honorary officer. Guess he'll have a little more time to volunteer now. Anyway, he deserves credit for his work in this area.

    I don't think it was as much "hate" as it was "Mario sucks"!! But man, there sure was plenty of it.

    Thank you Bill. :) I knew before the season he had his detractors and I assume that's what you are talking about. Thanks.

    "Haters" is a bit strong. More like worried, somewhat frustrated fans, but not haters...lol.

    Yeah.....thats kinda funny that Mario donating Camaros to speed enforcement.....

    I remember when they had a video of him driving his lambo in North Carolina over 100 mph...and you could hear a women screaming her head off in his car....

    I wonder if anyone remembers that youtube video....besides me......

    Mario just donated those cars so the next time he gets pulled over in his Lambo he can tell the cop to give him the keys back to his (Mario's) Camaro if the cop writes the ticket.

    Wouldn't the officers be better served with some bullet-proof/resistant glass or door armor?

    That's the route I would've gone...and kept it private.
