Any news on how Mario's foot is healing?
Hmmmmm..........man, I really need to get a life.
I haven't heard anything, but it should be healed by now. I think the treatment was to keep off his feet for a few weeks.
No news is probably good news as far as Mario is concerned. If I recall correctly, surgery was a last resort if rest wasn't working for him, so sounds like he is doing find.
nothing on http://www.mariowilliams.com/
doesn't look like it's been updated in a while.
dont worry, well hear about his foot again next season. or some other lame @@@ excuse.
I heard that if you don't use it, you lose it. Is that true?
You try playing on plantar fasciitis against world-class athletes. Hell, try playing with it against guys at your local gym. Come back once you have then make that same comment.
^^Yep, I agree. Most players take time off but Mario wanted to prove something. I give him all the love because the guy has some heart. I wish all the Texans had his spirit. We are in good hands ladies and gentlemen.
is that a serious question?
Along as you have not started 20 DC threads today, you have more of one than most
This thread title scared the #@$@ out of me. thank God it's nothing! havn't heard anything about mario..which is probably good.
as far as plantar fascitis goes....the more you rest and take time off...the better. sounds like a good remedy for the offseason.
rep comin to you
I dont know but thats why I use it just so I wont loose it!!!!!
Actually, I've never started a DC thread so I feel much better now....
Just need a little help. I dont the game/team the Texans where playing but does anybody know were to find the video clip where MW knocks one the opposing teams blockers into their running back for a tackle? Can't find it and its driving me crazy. Damn this ADD!
*Note: The Texans will likely exercise a $12 million option bonus on Mario Williams' contract. Per ESPN.com, this will lower his future years' salaries as follows: $975,000 (2007), $1.575 million (2008), $2.3 million (2009) and $3.025 million (2010) and add the 2011 season at a base salary of $3.725 million. Also from the report: "Williams can void the final two years of the deal based on playing time levels and if he and the team reach certain predetermined performance levels, but the Texans then have a right to buy back the voided 2010 and 2011 seasons at a cost of $8.5 million. There are plenty of incentives, like $125,000 in most years for leading the league in sacks, bonuses for honors and playoff victories, and escalators that can raise the base salaries in 2010 and 2011 by $6 million and $9.5 million, respectively."
since this was a mario thread I thought I'd pop it in here. Just thought it was kinda interesting and only understood about half..lol
what's that at the end about escalators that will rase the base by 15.5 million!!! his incentives don't look like they'd kill us to bad though.
What are escalators though and how would this apply....If we get really good...can mario eat up a lot of our cap in the future?
Escalators are basically performance based clauses in a contract. If he and/or the team achieve certain goals he gets performance based raises.
As far as that news goes, looks like we are conceding the cap this year in order to open it up for huge cap space in years to come. Andre restructuring, this news with Mario, etc etc.
I like what I am seeing with the cap here.
Why hate on the dude? He is a gamer, and played through a condition that would sideline the majority of us.
Without Mario's forced fumble, we probably would not have beaten the Colts. He was playing with the pain for a couple of months by that point, so there was no excuses involved. I just don't get the hate, but to each his own, I suppose.
