    Anyone know why he was lined up so far outside, he had to be at least 5 yard split from the DT..

    I'm guessing the shoulder problem is bothering him more than anyone wants to admit. And they're lining him up further out to try to let his freakish speed give him some kind of advantage over the OL.

    Maybe they saw something on tape in the Ravens game

    I think if they felt like they had anyone on the team that could outperform an injured Mario, they'd shut Mario down for the rest of the season, or at least rotate him. But the best DE they have outside the starters is probably Tim Bulman.

    Bulman had 4 sacks last year. He's an option. I'm just saying...how many do the DE's have now?

    ASmith-1 maybe?
    Barwin-2 I think?
    Mario-5 at the most?
