    Mario looked good today. I think he won more than his share of the battles against D'Brick. He appears to be playing with the type of energy and power the Texans expected when they drafted him. He deserves some props.

    Demeco was great again. The Texans need to improve before he goes down the path that constant losing leads a player to.

    Maybe these two can pick Dunta's game up too. Then we'd have a top player in each of the defensive units for future building purposes.

    yeah im very pleased with how they are playing. mario has 4.5 sacks, but lots of pressures. with time, those pressures will turn to sacks, and demeco will be demeco. i can honestly see our defense being a top 10 defense next season.

    guys i like:

    mario williams
    demeco ryans
    anthony weaver
    dunta robinson
    glenn earl

    Demeco was everywhere. With him doing so well in NY today it should solidify what the NY writers have heard about him and should bode well for the ROY.

    Mario played well again.

    The defense will be the cornerstone of this team for years to come due to these two great young players.

    Agreed. We have a great young nucleus on the D. Maybe picking up someone like S Laron Landry and a free-agent CB in the off-season, we will have a Top 10 D.

    we *could* have a great defense in a few years if we fix the secondary and get some top free agent signings

    the offense will be terrible as long as Carr is at the helm...sorry but it's true.

    Babin got there first, but Mario got around D'Brick pretty easily on that play.

    Teams arent built through free-agency, they're built through the draft. Three ways to salary cap problem; Free Agency, always picking #1, and over paying for players (see #1).

    In my opinion , when Mario realizes just how good he can be .... the league better watch it . On the Pennington play he gave D'Brick one heck a punch and knocked him off balance .

    Mario played well as did Demeco. Dunta plays well at times, but I think once the Texans have a steady & reliable safety combination back there Dunta's play will improve dramatically.

    true

    what is killing the Texans is that lots of our previous 2nd 3rd and 4th round picks over the years aren't making the team, so we are having to overpay in the the FA.. hard to manage the cap when that happens.

    Just imagine if we used one of those picks we traded for Phyllis Buchanon on that Kerry Rhodes guy...

    How about a lot of our previous #2's, 3's and 4's weren't even around for us to draft with. Traded away.

    First, I want to remind everyone that Mario is playing hurt. He would have been even better, if he were 100%

    How many players are on offense??

    Let's see.... there is
    Kyle Kosier
    MarcoRivera
    MarcColumbo
    Whoever their fullback is now.
    TerrellOwens
    & TerryGlenn

    That's six of Dallas 11 offensive starters. 4 of their defensive starters are FA aquisitions.

    If you look at it as a one or the other kind of situation, you are going to lose. If you look at it the way Kubiak has with Weaver, Cook, Walther & Putz..... solid young players.... & you're going to win in the long run. Moulds didn't hurt either, hopefully we can keep him happy for the next 2 years at least.

    I'd much rather have a linebaker that knows how to cover the under side, so the safeties & Corners can focus on their jobs.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but after looking at the stats where it says Mario only got three tackles??? :confused:

    I would have sworn he was in on way more tackles that that.

    That surprises me. He certainly disrupted several more plays.
