Mario Williams was the wrong pick. Of course I speak for the 10% who wanted D Brick.
Well then, might as well cut him now and not let him play the season when it actually matters.
Heh, so we should pull an Astros trick like we did with Wilson
Give it a rest. He batted that one ball down and got into the back field with a nice play almost immediately afterwards. Looks like he drew quite a bit of attention on a few other plays as well.
Give me an address and I'll have a Saints jersey sent over to you...
wow, you learned all that from less than one game of play. DE is not a position that rookies usually come in and dominate. Ahhh actually I am going to stop right there. I was going to explain further, but you aren't worth the key strokes. I hear the Saints need some fans. Jump on board their forums.
Funny, I also wanted D Brick but you sure don't speak for me.
the sky is falling the sky is falling! chill, second game of the preseason, bruce smith and reggie white started out slow too
I dont think he's starting out slow. They are lining him up next to Peek and Peek's already had two sacks. Coincidence? I think not. Mario makes the players around him better, knowledgeable football fans understand this.
ok maybe not starting out slow, but it seems some were expecting him to come out and get 10 sacks a game or something
i knew what you meant
Unfortunately am in the land of Blue Star LOSERS, so am not watching game but am listening online and following on NFL.com. I hardly think that fact our D has registered 7 sacks in 7 quarters and our offensive line in 7 quarters has allowed ONLY 1 is a tremendous situation.
Onto this young man's Regie Reggie Rant, Mario Williams is reason we have those 7 sacks. Did he make them...NO, but like has been so ably explained he makes the defense better. When offensive coordinators and O-Line coaches focus on him it frees rest of defense
Q Which would you rather have 10 sacks by Mario to shut up talking heads at sports media and other various and sundry idiots OR would you rather have a defense that has forced several fumbles sacked QB 7 times and held opponents through 7 quarters to 17 points. DOH
I hope you meant to say Mario Williams is a reason instead of the reason for those sacks. He's a reason for them, but he's not soley responsible for the good D-line play.
OUCH next thing Miss Manners will critique way I am sitting
Well in your original post you put "Williams is reason" so I don't know if you meant that he's the reason or a reason. Sorry, I didn't mean for it come out so harsh.
most NFL experts say you need 3-4 years to truely evaluate how good a teams draft was.
but hey...for some people 2-3 quarters of preseason football is enough.
Does it reall matter what he did? We won both of our games and to me that is ALL that matters.
I think it does. Winning is nice, but the preseason isn't just about winning like the regular season. In the preseason, you like to see players improve. So yes I believe it does matter.
Williams did good this game. We helped our line, batted down a pass, and tackled a running back for a loss.
"Doc! What's wrong!"
"We have to go back to April 29th, 2006!"
"But why, Doc?"
"The Texans are about to pick Mario Williams! We must change that!"
"Doc, they're doing just fine........wait.........so you're telling me you made a time machine......out of a DeLorean?"
