    Good quote. He's playing a tough position, is young, and is only going to get better. Mario and the whole franchise will show vast improvements in the 2nd half of the season. All things take time.

    I think that picture of Carr looks that that one guy in the back is swinging him around by his legs, playing some goofy game, or like a wrestler making Carr dizzy.

    Here, this'll teach ya ta run for the endzone! :tease:

    Oh yeah, I agree that Mario's got it. He may have got it from Demeco, but he does got it. :)

    4.5 sacks in his last 5 games. At this pace, Mario could easily have double digit sacks before the end of the year. I would say that would make him worthy of the first overall pick, over Bush (who hasn't done squat).

    I hurt my self screaming so loud at the T.V when Mario got that sack....

    But on another note....What a bogus "roughing the passer" call....

    That was a bail out call by the refs....

    I dont know about you guys, but Mario getting the sack pumped me up big time. Seeing him do the "ballin" shot as well. He got the fans going, and the Giants going as well. This guy has got it.

    Did anyone else love seeing the emotion come out of Mario when he got the phantom roughing the passer call on Eli? I thought he was going to decapitate somebody. All I know is that I was pumped up for the entire game after those 2 plays. And so was our defense. They feed off of Mario making plays.

    Yeah I caught that. He looked like like me when I was 10, and my dad came at me with the belt. You know that, holy sh1t!!! look.

    I think I caught him saying something along the lines of "your crazy"

    To put it bluntly, Mario when Ape sh1t on that dude. Thank God we had Demeco there to calm him down.

    Amazing how quickly the tide turns. Mario's improving vastly and Bush is looking bad, not disappointing, but subpar. We're literally 5 wins away from going from being the "laughingstock" of sports media to looking savvy and promising. Not that it matters, but it's nice to hear good things.

    Mario is a beast. He's killing guys to the inside and with the bull rush... that's tougher to do than get the corner, IMO. When he gets those tackles locked up and bracing for the bull rush, he'll get those speed rush sacks that Peppers, Merriman, and Freeney get.

    What I want to see Mario do after a sack is the Hulk Hogan flex off. If he would go down on one knee and "pump up" the pythons, I would probably scream myself hoarse.

    That series of playes - Mario's & Ryan's sacks, and then Mario disrupting the passing play (almost a sack) - was a sign of things to come. I expect to see a monster defense being formed here, with anchors at DE, LB, and CB. And with the promise that our offense has been showing, we have a good chance of having a solid team next year.

    Thanks for posting the quote, Hulk. Coming from an NFL vet that played against Mario speaks volumes over the hot air coming from tv pundits and talking heads. :thumbup

    I also heard that Bob the Vet thinks Reggie Bush is a bust.

    Love the avatar Hulk, I saw more from DC on that play than I have in 4+ years. He earned a completely blank slate with that play. Whether the criticisms were deserved or not, he seems to have responded in a way that the players and fans can embrace. Not to hijack Mario's thread, but just htought I'd throw it out there.

    I'm sure when the sacks start coming more frequently he'll get more creative with his post play antics.

    I'd like to see him do one of those "Mr. Universe" poses where you turn your back to the crowd and look down at your bicep.
