Let me start off by saying that I have been pretty critical of Mario this off-season. I was pleased to see him more active in the Cowboy game, but was still left feeling that I wanted to see him be more of a factor. Fairly or unfairly, I want to see him produce like the #1 overall pick and hope one day that as a fan I can stop having to hear that he was one of the worst draft blunders of all time. All of that being said, look at Reggie Bush's numbers tonight (per ESPN): 12 carries, 38 yards (long of 9) and no TDs. There may have been some receiving yards, but I assume if there were it was less than 47 yards shown on the stat sheet I saw. I know that one night does not make a career and further that the poor performance of Bush justifies or makes the poor performance of Mario less concerning - but it is interesting to keep these numbers in mind when we evaluate our expectations of Mario. I am not sure what the defensive equivelant of the stats above - but I have a feeling that what ever those numbers are - there would be a thread or two about his play.
