From Solomon's chron blog:
Mario pretty much admitted that he had opprotunities to make plays but he didn't....
Whatever that means...
This was a nice breakdown to read. Rep your way.
Thanks for the post.
Seemed like a pretty fair analysis, hopefully Mario gets rolling by season opener.
That's a pretty accurate assessment. That's how I saw everything. Mario will be fine.
Thanks for that. Rep coming your way.
Most informational Mario post yet. Much better than the other 17 pages.
i think your being a little generous on your assesment.
couple of examples, play 8 -- if your taken out of the play and run 5 yards past the qb. you didnt beat your man. you got pushed out of the play.
play 14 what you calling holding the point i call getting blocked by a second string tackle. while benson runs free.
i watched mario pretty closley and didnt see a lot of positives. but ill wait till the regular season to get to worried.
This was an assessment by jerome Solomon, not TexanAddict. And FWIW, King Solomon is notorious for bashing the Texans.
Didn't see a whole lot positive in that breakdown...
If you count the plays where he says Mario had no chance to make a play as a wash, that still leaves more negatives than positives...
Towards the end of the breakdown it seemed as if Mario was getting worse...
Thanks, I was about to say the same thing. Guess I didn't make it clear enough that this on Solomon's blog.
I'd say he is more notorious for speaking his mind than bashing the Texans. We are just thin skinned at times.
I didn't know calling the entire fanbase in the town where you work "losers" was just speaking your mind.
my bad. so i think king solomon is being a little generous with his assesments, not texanaddict.
Yes we are.
You are sooo right; sometimes we can't handle the truth...
Thin skinned? Now my feelings are hurt.
mario = one of the biggest busts in draft history
Mario will be fine except in the eyes of the Vince and Reggie lovers
not really i am not a VY or RB lover at all, but i do see through all the hype and if u look at mario he is just not performing
thing is the ball is in VY hands on offense 100 percent of the time.. Reggie..less times than VY(obviously)
Mario only time you will see his stats is if he gets a big play (sack,Forced fumble,INT) or if he gets a tackle.. lots of folks won't see the little stuff like if he gets 2 people on him and opens up other defensive linemen or keeps an OL off of Demeco..... mario will have a lot of "behind the scenes" stuff (hopefully) ....now if an OL is handling him one on one on a consistant bases ..then we have problems.
