Nice job with this.
Texans website link
Thanks Chick for feeding our football cravings in this meek period . That was a nice read about a kid who just worked hard and landed at our doorstep . I'll take Mario anytime ... no Reggie no Vy .
Coming from soneone who was a Reggie fan, i totally agree...After research on Mario iam happy they picked Mario...And i'm not afraid to admit when i was wrong...This time i'm glad i'm wrong....Mario is just what we need, someone to get really MEAN....:brickwall
USA today has an article on whether the Texans made a mistake drafting Mario along with a poll here is the link:
Last I looked - pro-Mario was winning at 46%. It is a very long article - but quite good. Mario even talks about his toenail operation.
Awesome article. Thanks for letting us know. This part hurts to read:
^^ouch....cringing in pain....
The link doesn't seem to pull up the artical anymore.
eheh. Welcome to the NFL my man.
you have to use the full URL
That's a great article. It has some stuff I hadn't read yet; I think it's cool Ryans and Williams were roomies for a while. The link you gave didn't work, so here's the link I used... http://www.usatoday.com/sports/football/nfl/texans/2006-06-20-williams-cover_x.htm.
Yep, VY is special and so is Bush. We have Mario and he may well become the Earl of Houston. I hope this guy just keeps his head on his shoulders like he has so far. So far its like a dream come true for this team. He's special and you see it in everything he does.
Best article so far this offseason...
Who says the owner doesn't have a grasp on football and his customers?
Everything I read about Mario just reinforces that he was a great pick for this team. I think he'll end up elevating everyone around him, and along with D.Rob and [hopefully] Ryans, we've got some young guys that will be the foundation of a dominant defense for years to come.
Update on Mario:
Texans | Williams expects to be at full strength soon

Chris Colston, of USA Today, reports Houston Texans DE Mario Williams (foot) is wearing cleats with the toe section cut away during practices. He is expecting to be back at full strength by the end of the month.
Dude better be ready to play come Opening Day. That is all I know. We know all the people they passed on to draft this workout warrior, and if he turns out to be a bust, I would like to personally punt Kubiak's arse in the direction of College Station. That way he could drag another embarassing joke of a football program deeper into the abyss. The Aggies are currently an embarassment to the State of Texas and the Texans are following the same precipitous flightpath.

BTW Did I mention that the Aggies are an embarassment...Male Cheerleading and a Losing program..way to go Fran
ESPN's Chris Mortenson is reporting the Texans have signed Mario Williams.
any Rick Ballou fans in the house?
The sidebar on the USA Today article. Pretty funny.
He can't afford to eat at McDonalds or BK? Didn't we just give this guy 50 million dollars? I'd get fries and a shake too.
That was then.
This is now.
