From Sporting News exercise phyiologist Brian Baldinger: "At 6-7, 291, Williams has amazing size for an end. He's smart, and he's hungry. He wants to live up to his draft status. But he'll have a hard time doing so because he isn't a fast-twitch guy." "All the good pass-rushing ends -- Dwight Freeney, Jason Taylor, Michael Strahan, John Abraham and a few others -- are fast-twitch guys. You either have it or you don't, and Williams doesn't." http://www.sportingnews.com/yourturn/viewtopic.php?t=128025 Look, I don't know why these guys want to throw dirt on Mario after one game... but this is getting a little silly. Yes, Freeney, Taylor, and Abraham are quicker than Mario. Mario's not that type of guy, but he's pretty explosive (4.66 40, 40" vertical, 10" broad jump, good 3 cone, average short shuttle) for his size and strength (35 reps). Superfast guys make more immediate impacts too, it's just easier to have immediate success when you can run by guys. Knowing Mario's not that type of guy, judging him so prematurely is ridiculous. I just wonder if Baldinger remembers a guy named Reggie White. Some of the guys Baldinger mentioned could run circles around Reggie White... Reggie ran a 4.6 too, BTW. In Reggie's first two years in the USFL he had 23.5 sacks in 36 games. Everybody needs to chill out... if Mario keeps working he'll be an even more formidable athlete in a few years. I just think it's so funny Mario's being held to the standard of flavor of the week DE's as if they are the only type that have ever had success.
