    Nice find. Thanks for posting it. :thumbup

    I think Mario will more than prove his worth. And my prediction is that he'll be playing and making an impact long after Bush has retired.

    In the videos I've seen, he has been punishing all the offensive linemen that go against him.

    I hope Courtney Brown wasn't doing the same after he got drafted #1...

    About Courtney Brown....

    I have always dreaded that also. Those guys were nothing like Mario though.

    I think Mario is more like another former #1 D pick. Bruce Smith

    He looks taller on TV. No wonder Mario is taking his lunch money.

    Ryan Leaf was doing great in camp and practices...different position, same situation.

    No NEED to talk about him, or just nothing to talk ABOUT? And,um, that WAS a post about how good Mario IS. He's gonna be like fine wine...better with age. Unlike most RB's. This is killing me. The entire NFL world is PO'd at us for taking Mario, but we have to deal with sAint's fans who are mad because they have the second coming of Eric Metcalf Jr. on their hands. Just look forward to 3rd downs, Broussard. You'll have plenty of them, and that's when the Bush will hit the fan, I mean field.

    Ryan Leaf was supposed to be picked where he was, it was a true toss up in all scouts eyes between him and Manning. The fact that he failed is different, as is the situation that he was in as compared to Mario's. Mario was not really expected or even thought of to go first overall until a few days before the draft, Leaft was always a top contender.

    What I meant is that the performance now doesn't count, its the regular season that counts.

    I think it's a negative that a thread can't focus on Mario Williams without Reggie Bushs name coming up.

    I care as much about Reggie Bush right now as I do about Tiki Barber. I'm not interested in news about Tiki and I don't have anything to say to Giants fans who might come in here to talk about him. Last I heard he wasn't a Texan. Niether is Reggie Bush. That marks the end of my interest.

    Unfortunately, most, if not all, of articles written about the Texans will feature the name Reggie Bush. It's inevitable.

    I hope that's a personal bucket for Flanagan.

    Hopefully they will start to be quotes like "Texans were right to pick Mario over Reggie"

    although many here understand & may agree with this viewpoint, its a part of draft history that may never go away don't blame your every day fan for this unrelenting slew of opinion, heaven forbid David misteps and VY leads the Titans over the Texans latter this season.

    as was posted (for those here for pre-draft discussions) the Texans could be winners with selecting any of the top 3 prospects (Mario, Bush & VY). I'm very happy with the results, but I would have also been happy with any of the others as well, the Texans received adequate compensation for failing so miserably last season, but the main coup may have been getting Kubiak & ensuing exodus :redtowel:
