I hope Mario has a big game tomorrow.
Our defensive line will need to consistently put some pressure on Brees if we don't want our secondary to get burned all day. A big part of this pressure must include Mario. We need hurries, knock downs, batted balls, runs stopped for losses, and even a couple of sacks from the line to give our defense a good day.
I'll take hurries, and deflected passes. Sacks, I'm not so sure that they will be there, but if we can just get in Brees face, we should easily make him turn into the Drew Brees that went 0-4 at the begining of this season.
Same story every week. Mario needs to play mad. Yawn... Shut up and do it!
[sarcasm]according to Kubiak he has been outstanding...I wonder why he thinks he needs to pick his game up?[/sarcasm]
outstanding? i thought the Kubiak take was 'exceptional'
Next level: Exceptionally Outstanding
We can only hope.
A definite step up from his phenomenally adequate performance to date.
Any news if Jamaal Brown is going to play LT or not? If he doesn't, this could be really good for Mario.
should we blitz the crap out of them like the rams did??
Richard Smith does not know how to do that, or he thinks it is against the rules.
btw you guys realise kubiak is saying that stuff because mario must obviously be pulling his weight and trying his best so kubiak wants that recognised (similiar to what he did with travis in pre-season... you know when all the 'experts' on this MB were still calling him a 'slug' etc)
Two different things.
While I'm not a big fan of Richard Smith, I do have to ask this question in his defense.
Do you think the fact that we only had Dunta in the secondary that could be counted on to cover his guy beyond the snap of the ball, might've had something to do with the lack of blitzes? If you blitz, you've got to have solid coverage for at least 3-5 seconds for the blitzers to get there. Otherwise, you're hanging them out to dry. As it stands now, our secondary couldn't be counted on to cover a bunch of old ladies in steel toed army boots.
Once we get our secondary upgraded, I believe we'll start seeing a lot more blitz packages &, as a result, a lot more sacks from the DL. But, that's just my opinion.
jlam, I think, was saying that Mr. Brown has not practiced this week; and is unlikely to play on Sunday. Mario has to perform this week.
The information about Brown is in the Ahman Green is out thread.
was that really worth wasting a post over a minor mistake of an expression in my post?? you know i meant hes trying the best he can..
anyway im not going to assign him to the scrap heap... usually physical tools + proper attitude= good things in the end
Brian Young : Out
Jammal Brown : Doubtful
Charles Grant : Questionable
Usama Young : Questionable
I hate to be like this but I honestly don't see mario stepping his game up for tommorow. He's notorious for not playing at potential in big games. ie. titans game last year. I just hope that he plays a moderately good game and Amobi or TJ or ND or any of them are able to play better on man on coverage with Mario drawing double teams
