    IMO Mario has been the whipping boy since......well since day before the draft.

    But with his conditioning and if he stays healthy... i think we will (hope) we will be looking at someone else....:whip:

    OK, I'll start it:

    It's not his fault. The secondary sucks. The don't give him time to get to the QB. :user:

    Yeah, I know. The guy dominated a couple of games. It took him a little while, but he was a rookie and was expected to be a run-stopper and a pass-rusher.

    Everyone needs to layoff Super Mario. Guys like Mark Anderson, Tamba Hali, and Mathias Kiwanuka were situational pass-rushers. Their teams didn't try to move then inside to DT or depend on them to change the game. Those guys didn't have near the pressure to produce out there. I hope that Mario can become intense and focused. We need a beast at DE. And his only determination should be to rip the qb's head off.:d:

    Or Else?

    Or Else?

    Or else what? Are they going to go up to Mario and tell him he sucks or something?

    I don't think so.

    Yeah, Mario is a tad more intimidating than Zoolander was. So, I guess the "or else" is that they will continue to write mean things about him on blogs that few people read. :scare:

    Or else it will give ESPN and Richard Justice something negative to write about. That's all.

    Well, since Mario is a Texan, I hope he reaches his full potential. I have nothing against Reggie or Vince and wish them well when they are not playing us. But honestly, other than when they play us, I could give a rats butt how they do. Outraged?...Nah

    I certainly hope Mario proves that "my gut feeling" is wrong.

    Pressure on a player does not influence how they play. It makes no sense. Mario was shafted when he got moved around, but he needs to play like a number 1 pick should, he is getting payed like one.

    Thing about this is...he is never going to reach the expectations some people have of him...you know like break the single season sack record(or maybe he could...)

    But people have extra-high expectations of him being the first pick of the draft, and they will only be satisfied if his sack stat is higher than everyone else, either that or he makes the pro-bowl every other year or seomthing.

    I will be happy if he just contributes to a championship, that is all I want out of all the star players...just to contribute to winning a superbowl. He can get some nice hurries which help a lot, some TFLs, but if he ain't getting sacks than people will see him as a failure.

    It is going to be a tough career for him media wise. When you have to compete against a QB and RB as a DE you just can't win that battle unless the RB and QB both turn out to suck.
