    Looking really strong here at the end of the 2nd quarter, overpowering Denver and driving those OL deep into the backfield

    I would agree. He needs to add some extra moves to his style....as a matter of fact, a bunch of moves. But he looked better in the 2nd quarter.

    I think sacks are a bit easier to get.

    Well if you count that sack that Ryans had because the og/ot were double teaming Mario. The Tackle never even looked to his left he was pinned on stopping mario LOL. Mario made that last tackle before the half, the guy looks great.

    Yeah that's why you see good defensive players putting up 10-12 sacks but good running backs put up 15-20 TDs...

    Running backs commonly score 1 yd. touchdowns by following their fullback into a hole...


    You're right; that's a lot harder than a sack.

    Really? The NFL record for most sacks in a season is 22.5 while the TD record is 27.

    Great theory from the non-observant Aints fan.

    So tell us--how many years out of the last ten has the top DE had more sacks than the top RB has had TD's?

    How often does one player get a hand full of sacks?

    Is it just me, or is Mario looking much better at DT then DE. He can really collapse the pocket playing on the inside.

    Well that is because you have less responsibilities as a DT, rather than a DE. Most of what Mario is doing at this point is from raw skill, once he learns his responsibilities at the DE position he will look alot better.

    RB is a pretty damn easy position compared to really any defensive position other than DT. All you do is run where defenders are not. Running flare routes and blocking incoming blitzers isn't too hard to find out. Im not sayin its an easy position, but compared to other football positions, it is.
