Mario has a TD this week.....Bush and VY...0 !!!!!!!! hahahahahaha!!!
....sorry, couldn't help it!
...and a pair of sacks.
VY has a touchdown.....rushing.
Mario looked freaking nice this week, I have to admit.
Beat me to it. Obviously time will prove consistent performance, but I hope I can go at least this week without hearing about what a bust he is. Amazing how good he looks with a year to improve and some help in the pass rush ...
I'd still like to see us be more aggressive defensively ... it's hard for our D-linemen to create pressure when we blitz so infrequently.
and the Titans won in ugly fashion. But a win's a win
3 way tie at the top of the AFC South
i noticed that as well. it was nice for us not having to send extra guys to get after the QB but more pressure will equate into more opportunities for the rest of the defense. i hope we do a little more blitzing next week
That statement makes no sense.
ya'll really need to stop comparing the boy to VY and Reggie... personally I don't think it's fair to him.
Great post. Who cares what VY or Bush are doing unless we are playing them.
The media cares.
They are just trying to take a jab back at all the stupid ass media that has already labeled Mario a bust, and VY and RB hall of famers. And it's well deserved....so back off.
MARIO!! i love u man!
Back off? lol
I saw these fans cheering Vince last year when he BEAT the Texans...
Personally I say forget who plays on the other teams and cheer for whose on your team. Personally I hate comparing guys at different positions like this... especially when it's a DL vs a QB/RB. Because Mario will never be as much of a spotlight player as Vince or Reggie... just by the nature of the beast.
I just want Mario to be the best DE he can be... and he played VERY solid today.
Just voicing my opinion that i'm tired of Mario being compared to VY and Reggie... and not just by the fans but the media as well.
How does it not make sense?
In its most basic form, at the risk of oversimplifying this, if we're rushing 4 DL and 2 LB, then 5 OL have to let someone get through. Could be the LB, could be the DE, could be the DT, but someone will probably get through. Quickly.
If we consistently rush 4 DL, then the extra OL gets the opportunity to help off on someone. Meaning, it is a lot harder for the DL to get through.
Of course you need to mix it up, work on DL moves, work a good secondary, etc. etc. It needs to be a lot of different things, but I think we'd benefit all the way around with more pressure.
And so am I....I am just saying that it seems to me that the posters above your orignal post were just having some fun with the fact Mario had a good day......he has taken all of the bashing in the world unfairly.....and it is nice to jab back at all of the RB and VY lovers out there they never gave Mario a chance.
It has been posted on this board thousands of times that you shouldn't compare these various positions to each other.....I think we are all in agreement here. The true fans here have always embraced Mario, whether if they agreed with the pick right away or not.
Unless you are one of these, who cares what the media says.
It's already on youtube.
I believe we hold the crown for at least a week (tie goes to Division record)
It's cool - i think we're on the same page...
