    If both were in the same draft. His reasoning was Mario didn't have fast times coming out and Chris Long with a 4.75 40 is plenty fast for him. Does he not realize that Mario at around 290 ran a 4.6 40?

    Typical ESPiN *****.

    PS: Kiper said he'd take Mario...but still managed to mention Bush

    Well everyone knows that VY would have made a better than either of them. They didn't say that, but I but jerome soloman would.

    Good! I hope he keeps saying it until the draft and then it's picked up by sport wonks all over the country. I hope people are asking Mario about it before the season opener and every time Long gets a sack or has a good game somebody brings it up in the Texans locker room.

    Mario plays really hard when he's pissed off. You tell em' Todd!

    If any of these 'experts' were so smart, they'd be working for an NFL team instead of just talking about NFL teams.

    Heh, let the haters keep on keepin' on. Meanwhile, Mario is working out, getting stronger and faster, and getting ready to sniff 20 sacks next season.

    If I was ever going to buy a jersey, I would very loudly, very proudly wear Mario's.

    I want to send Mario a jersey that says "psst Mario, I think he called you a girl". 30 sacks guaranteed.

    Couldn't we just bash up his ride and spray paint "Go Titans" on it?

    Nah, he'd probably think Chester Pitts took it for a ride.

    let's look at the bright side...at least they're using Mario in a favorable comparison instead of something more negative.

    :spit: Kiper can't mention Mario without mentioning the name Bush as well. Jake Long is no Mario....Like to see how good Jake Long would do if he had the same injury as Mario had his first year in the NFL. Mario is just going to keep getting better and better......

    That would be great, the same D.A.'s that call sports 610 now screaming about how we didnt draft Peterson can now call and scream about how we didn't draft Long.

    I'm surprised that McShay was able to finish a segment without mentioning how Matt Ryan is the best QB he has ever seen.

    You don't mean that Kiper said he still thinks the Texans should have taken Bush ?

    Kiper always says that when mentioning Mario. Reggie got the Saints to the NFC championship after all...

    if by "got the Saints to the NFC championship" you mean "Happened to be a saint the year that they got to the NFC championship"..you are absolutely correct.
