    Another great game.

    7 tackles, 0.5 sacks for 3.5 yards (should of been 1).

    My vote for AFC Defensive Rookie of the Year.

    Yep, that sack was his.

    DeMeco was a wonderful pickup, and the DROY is possible. I shudder to think of what our LB corps would be like without him; he is single-handedly defining that unit right now. Though maybe it's just the homer in me, but I wouldn't be surprised if Mario finishes strongly and captures the title.

    It's not that Mario had "1.5" sacks today against the awful Dolphins -- frankly I'd be sincerely concerned if he didn't get one -- but just that IMO his skills are improving and he will only get substantially better as the year goes on, with more skill work and live snaps to cure him of overthinking every play.

    He definately was the defensive MVP of today's game (did I just say defensive MVP while referring to the Texans?!?!?). His tackle on Ronnie Brown after the turnover by Carr was crucial in forcing Miami to settle for a FG. The Texans still have tackling issues which could prove to be costly, but Ryans is by far the best of the bunch as of now.

    I think meco is beating out dunta for our teams best defensive player as well.

    Robinson is not looking good right now. Safe to say that we need to draft some CB's next year.

    dunta got abused in every aspect today. he played horrible football. towards the end of the game as the announcers were describing the poor tackling and guys "flying past the ball", they were describing dunta in one of many missed tackles. for a guy known as one guy that really lays the wood, he spent most of the game laying down trying to grab shoestrings.

    I've said all along that d-rob wasn't a good cover corner...I know he missed some tackles today, but D-Rob is still the man when it comes to tackling, and I think he is still a good corner...

    Very dissapointed with Drob today on some plays, but I think the secondary as a whole had its best game. On many of our sacks Cullpeper had to hang on to the ball because no one was open.

    I totally agree...Dunta was roasted a few times today...I still think Dunta is going to be great for us, but Demeco has really stepped up big.

    i think he's a solid corner and will be a great corner. he had a bad game today though, and i was very disappointed in the poor tackling from arguably our best hitter. the defense around him played great though and i think that's going to fuel his fire. it's a shame we're off next week, i think our defense just got very hungry.

    D-Rob was second on the team with 6 tackles...I personally think he had a good game tackling wise....

    Just wait until Wong gets back and then we will have two good LBs. Imagine the defense then.

    D-Rob had a bad game but he got srewed on the crossing play when Booker dropped the ball. The other reciever chipped D-Rob while trailing Booker, that should have been called. He's going to bounce back after this no doubt bout it!!

    I think this guy will be one of the TOP MLB's down the line...He already is IMO the top defensive rookie.

    Hopefully, Wong DOES come back soon. He will def upgrade our LB crew. Is it just me or is Greenwood and Orr just observing. I see them make an occasional tackle but man, where are they? May need to throw Peek back there when he returns on on some blitz packages.

    I was about to call you soft in the head for making this suggestion, but if all else fails.....

    why not let him play a few downs at OLB? See how it goes.
