    Wow, two things really freak me out:

    Just being in the NFL is a challenge? Thats not what I want to hear about my #1 overall pick...



    A 1 point win? Give up 27 points to Miami? At home? Oh crap....

    And they're out of the gate in the read too much into quotes races.

    He clearly means that as in being in the NFL is motivation enough not as in Mario is barely hanging on to stay in the league.

    I don't see anything alarming about those quotes...

    Infantrycak has it right. Bryan wasn't making any sort of disparaging remark toward Mario at all. He was essentially rejecting the notion that Mario needs the heat turned up for him to produce.

    Having said that, you're rarely, if ever, going to see teammates go after each other, especially on this team. So I didn't expect Bryan to say anything else.

    But it's also worth noting that Dunta Robinson kind of gave credence to the "Mario needs an occasional spark" notion, when I spoke to him after the KC game. Here's what he said:

    “Mario kinda slapped me in the face because I told him before the third quarter, ‘Mario, I aint heard your name all day, you gotta do something,’ Robinson said. “And then he went nuts from that point on. Mario is a monster. He can dominate a football game if he wants to and you saw that in the third quarter.”

    http://blogs.houstonpress.com/ballz/2007/09/down_and_dirty_with_dunta_texa.php

    So we just have to draw on our conclusions. Right now, the body of evidence is not entirely in Mario's favor. But he's young. There's still time to turn things around.

    thank you. but most of the credit goes to Bryan for generously giving up some of his rather limited free time to do this.

    Based on Mario's body of work in both college and the pros, I think you have to side with Dunta for the time being.

    Agreed it's good to see a player reach out to the fans, but I wish my free time was so limited. :cool:
