    Kerney didn't register any sacks this week so Mario is 1/2 sack behind Kerney with 2 games to play. Here's to Super Mario ending the season as this season's NFL sack king!!!

    I'm with you Joker, but Manning and Garrard are pretty tough to bring down because one is smart and has a quick release, the other can run. Their backups however, have no chance if they're within arms length of Super Mario. (que the music!!!)

    It will make Mario's achievement that much sweeter when he overtakes Kerney with a sack of Manning next week!!!

    Hey I mean I'm all for getting psyched at Mario's recent performances. But don't you think you guys are getting a bit presumptuous? Yes I see some greatness in Mario's future. And yes if he keeps up what he's been doing over the long haul, he would go down as one of the best ever. But I say we don't let the man get too fool of himself just yet. He still has a lot to show us, and I want to see more.

    Garrard would rather give up a sack than throw and INT and well Manning, if he gets a sack there then I vote for Mario for president.

    Presumptuous? Yes we have seen that for the last year and a half in a multitude of threads, on this board, and in different mediums. It is not to often that one of your players is leading the conference in sacks this late in the season, so please be easy on those of us who are fans of a player, on our own team, that has an oppotunity to be the league leader in an important statistical metric for his role.

    Presumptuous about what? He *is* 1/2 sack behind Kerney who leads the NFL. And he had a bunch of multiple-sack games recently. Nothing saying he can't do it again next week or the week after and take the lead. I think it's nice to lead in something positive for a change.

    I will be very happy if Mario wins the sack award for our conference, as that
    should help in PB balloting in the future as I don't expect him to make it this year.
    Actually I want DeMeco to make it more than Mario and think he's more deserving, though I'd sure be thrilled if both did but not gonna happen IMO.

    Good post. I'm as happy as everyone else, but it doesn't mean that the other 2 guys (VY & RB) can't make the leap that Mario apparently has made in subsequent years, hence it doesn't mean that we were right & everyone else was wrong. What he's doing has no bearing on the other 2. All it means is that mario is tapping into the huge potential the texans front office knew he had.

    I don't know. Mario gets one of the hardest QBs to bring down in Manning next. He'll be doing well to get a sack against Indy.

    It would be pretty amazing for Mario to lead the NFL in sacks, and in only his second year. As other posters have said it will be pretty tough to bring down Manning and Garrard, however, after all the grief he received last year I'm hoping he does lead the NFL in sacks. :fireball:

    Remember though...Mario was drafted for the purpose of turning Manning into a spoiled brat and throw his OL under the bus after games! I think it's about time Mario turned Peyton's pretty little white jersey green and brown!


    If Mario isn't motivated for this game and the next to not only have a chance to make it to the pro bowl, but lead the NFL in sacks...nothing at this point will. Remember, he wanted to break the single-season sack record this year...here's to 10 sacks in 2 games (wishful thinking I know)!!!

    Quite defensive now aren't we? Look none of you guys know me but the fact is I'm as big of a fan as any of you guys. So I'm not trying to keep you from being excited about how well Mario has been doing. Hell I'm as excited as any of you! The Broncos game was easily the best game I've ever been to (but considering my games this year were the Titans and Colts, that doesn't say a whole lot). But no doubt Mario's performance was the greatest DEFENSIVE performance I have ever witnessed live. He was in Cutler's face all night. I believe Mario could be one of the best ever at his position, IF he does not get too full of himself. Let's give the man the chance to keep showing us more.

    Man I don't know what the deal is because you guys certainly did not get the point of my post. As I said, I believe if he keeps doing what he has been doing, he would become quite possibly the greatest ever at his position. I never downgraded his performance. I never said he got lucky or that there was simply poor pass protection. It was a dominating performance. But some posts have contained quotes about the greatness in Mario's future and the numerous pro bowls, etc. All I care about is that the man does not get too high on himself. If he does, it could send him right back to where he came from: mediocre land. I want more from Mario. I want Super Bowls from Mario and numerous Pro Bowls.

    I think it's a big step in the right direction that we can even have this thread and discussion!

    this is the part that irritated everyone...

    The three posts in front of you made no reference to multiple pro-bowls, etc. They made reference ONLY to hoping Mario could get the sack lead THIS season. That doesn't sound "presumptuous", only hopeful.
