    if the texans intended on letting him walk just like that, they would be shopping him around right now, and not coddling his ass.

    It's funny you mention that because the Giants are a team I was thinking could be trade partners next year.

    I think Mario will do well this season. Next offseason, the organization will franchise him and then attempt to work on signing him to a long term deal. If it's going to be extremely difficult to sign him they will seek a trade. But my prediciton is he's on our roster next season after being franchised and a longterm deal is made.

    Not sure about NY, but I put the chances at 66% that he will be somewhere else just like Carr was after Kubiak had him a year. At least this time they haven't signed him to an extension.

    Somewhere most interesting
    I think he has 8-10 sacks and the team franchises him and he gets shipped.

    If we trade with anyone, I don't think it would be the Giants. Lots of talks of how stacked they are at DE.

    My dark horse would go to the Lions or the Bucs, but surely the Lions. They seem to be building their D around their line, and Vanden Bosch surely is getting too old to keep it up.

    Could you imagine how scary a d-line would be with Williams, Suh, and Fairley, and Vanden Bosch? Ouch

    & with good reason He's been one of the premier pass rushers in the league for the last 6 years.

    I think Mario knows that Bob will take care of him.

    i think they will let this year play out and realize it didnt pan out the way they thought.


    i was thinking the lions as well, but with the stafford contract, and suh and johnson they would have to tap out their $$ on mario. not much of a team after that. no rb, no secondary.
    TB seems like they would be primed to make a run, but im assuming he would rather stay with the texans than do TB.
    mario will make HUGE money on the market. otherwise he should be getting locked up already

    Definitely true. But since they've already got their QB/WR/RB and a decent enough line (Lions fans have been saying there wasn't as much pressure on Stafford as the media made it out to be), I would guess they would want to focus on the D now.

    It's a ton of money to tie up into one group, but if you were going to focus all your money in one area of D, why not the part that has the biggest impact on games? They've already shown they want absolutely nothing to do with a talented secondary, and Vanden Bosch won't be too long before he retires. I'd say it would be an all-in move for a massive SB push.

    Also he will have some minor injury that keeps him from playing to 100%.
    Wade will have variations that get Mario into his old position basically but he will still be called on OLB to help everyone save face.

    Hopefully Mario will stay healthy have a great contract year and the Texans franchise and trade him.

    if it were up to bob, we would probably still be trotting carr out there. difference between mario and carr is that mario has actually produced. bob can be loyal to a fault and you should know that.

    Mario will get atleast 12 sacks and will continue to be a premiere player in the league.

    Franchise tag WILL be applied, no way the Texans let a former #1 overall pick walk. If we don't have him in our plans, we will definitley recieve something for him.

    Lol, silliest thing I've read yet concerning this whole Mario deal...

    The only reason they'd be able to "save face" by calling Mario an OLB would be if Mario did well in those "variations that get Mario into his old position... basically"... I think if Mario does well period, whether it be from his old position or wherever, no one (who is reasonable anyway) would care what he is called, why he is called that or who called him that...

    I think what he is saying is that Mario will have his hand down more times than not, but they'll still call it a 3-4 & they'll still call Mario an OLB.

    Lions would be freaking disgusting. How the **** would you block their front 4? I'm gonna make that in Madden this year, just for fun.

    This how i break it down:


    The new scheme with a competent DC alone = 2 sacks
    Better talent all around him = 2 sacks
    Mario skill set = 5 - 7 sacks

    So the way i see it, dude will be anywhere between 9 - 11 sacks.
