    OK....I drank the kool aid when we drafted Mario thinking he might be a stud. The first mistake of the new coaching staff. HE HAS NOT DONE ONE THING TO IMPRESS, and our defense gave up over 400 yards. Nice F%$#ing game Texans. We look like last seasonm. TEERRIBLE!

    0-6 here we come

    So do you judge every player on his first game?

    I think mario had more tackles and the same amount of sacks as Peppers..

    however. did Carolina move Peppers around like we did with Mario?

    I recall mario was at DT on some 3rd down situations.
    just curious

    WOW mario is a Bust??? Dang, he has played one game and we should already give him the boot. he was double teamed 90% of the game but he is a bust. O.K. let me guess, no one in the history of the NFL has had 60 yards rushing and 40 yards recieving. Bush for the Hll of Fame!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I can understand your anger, heck I'm angry too but you can't call anybody a bust after one game.

    If they play like the way they did today, that is true. I don't think they will though. I've confidence in the coaching and the players that they'll make adjustments as necessary to play better and better.

    I have to agree with on the defense, our defense didn't look good at all. No running game either.

    Westbrook had more yards from scrimmage: 71 yards rushing, 61 yards receiving (excluding return yards) and a TD today.

    Ridiculous comment. Way too early to tell. You're railing on the defense which did not play that well, but you should be just as concerned about the offense. No running attack and they did zip in the 2nd half.

    It's going to be another tough year. We have a tough schedule and are still a below average team.

    Sorry, but I need to correct you there. He was NOT double teamed 90% of the time at all. I sit up in the end zone at the 500's and focused on him allot. Didn't see that at all. Did catch him however standing around during the play doing absolutely nothing. Like he was lost or something. He did not rush, looked like he was suppose to drop back in coverage, but didn't. I am not a coach and do not know his assignment, but I am pretty sure a DE is not suppose to be there standing around...

    No I do not consider him a bust at all. He needs to be taught technique right now and quickly. He has not gotten past the learning curve. Only time will tell on this, not 1 game and 3 pre-season games...

    Understand something here. 1 player is not a result of a defense giving up 400 yards in a game.

    The responsibility mostly falls on our DB's who gave up 311 yards passing. The defensive line did a decent job with stuffing the run in the beginning of the game...but as usually happens with us, the offense began to figure out how to pick apart our defense as the game wore on.

    Our DB's did an absolutely horrendous job of tackling...it made me wonder if they thought they were playing flag football with how many times they'd reach around a guy's waist and slide off. Even Dante Robinson was being manhandled all day.


    The fact is that we've got new systems for both our offense and our defense. It takes time for players to adjust to an entirely new system. Just be patient and everything will turn out ok.

    Not only that, but Mario was taken out of the game on several pass rushing 3rd down situations.

    Adrian Peterson will be the next once in a lifetime back, then Jamal Charles and Steve Slaton, then someone else, then someone else, then someone else, then someone else,....

    Our safety's were the reason we gave up that much yardage, the corners did decent jobs, sanders needs to hold on to the ball, and Williams was doubled alot, he needs to stay at end not DT. with that oline philly has you need mario in space not doubled by 350 pound guys. O-line of ours looked like the same old same old, Carr was responsible for maybe 1 sack.
