    Bob Whitfield, Giants OT, announced his retirement. He was the guy that Mario Williams threw around like a rag doll en route to his first real sack.

    Being 35 probably didn't help

    If we're talking about victims you'd have to mention the TE from the Jets. It was a running play, and they had the TE one on one with Mario. He literally tossed the TE five yards or so into the running back ending the play at the LOS. It's not everyday that you see a 250+ pound man get lifted off the ground and thrown around.

    I know Mario takes a lot of heat from last year's draft and his rookie stats, but I've got very positive feelings that he is going to be The Man and a big part of our dominant defenses in the years ahead.

    Honestly, as a Texans fan, I really hope he's so good that we barely remember all the bad blood of the 2006 draft when the dust settles.

    Does anyone have videos of these that can be posted on Youtube? The only one on there right now is against Jacksonville where he blew up the wrong guy.

    Yea.

    Except on that play he didnt blow up the wrong guy.

    He hit the guy coming around on a fake reverse. That's his job.

    The play against the Jets is featured in the follow-up to "Hey Rookie Welcome To The NFL" that was featured on ESPN. They also show his plays against the Giants. The follow-up focused on Mario, Vince, & MJD. You might be able to catch a replay of it on ESPN.

    Well, wrong guy in the sense it was the guy without the ball. I didn't mean it as a criticism.
