hey guys,... i have noticed that many people (not just members of this forum, but the media as well) are proclaiming that mario looked like a "rookie" in his first preseason game. Well.. hmmm, im not a genius or anything, but putting his performance aside, isnt he a rookie??? hahaha, i dont want to be redundant and what not, but i find it funny that most people are exploiting mario for being a rookie.. and are "jumping the gun" on his first performance. But, geez, this guy is a monster!!! He is HUGE, I can't believe with his size he has the athletic ability of someone like.... stevie francis,.. did anyone hear that super mario has the same vertical as francis?? that is unbelieveable... Another thing, I like the idea of moving mario along the d-line to switch things up... but I think it might be alittle premature to experiment with him. I think that kubes might wanna put mario in his most comfortable position for the season(to break him in), and then move him around. Mario needs experience, and most importantly, confidence. I just hope that once the season starts, mario can register his first sack vs. philly,... because that can keep mario from "over committing" on plays, and over running certain scenarios in trying to get his first sack. One question,... if ya'll were to compare LB Demeco Ryans to a current(or even former) NFL LB, who would it be?? Of what I have read, he seems like a smart player that may not have the best athletic abilities, but makes up for his short comings with his brains and leadership. Sorry if im rambling... but we gotta be patient with mario, and I cant wait anymore for the season to start up... hopefully this is the year we finally beat the colts,... and maybe have a .500 season. Its ONNNNN!!!!
