    I think that NFL coaches are a better judge of talent than any ESPN journalist or grumpy message board troll!

    Dungy was an awesome player, from what I've read. I like hearing that from him.

    No need to be a jerk. And try keeping the sarcasm for oposing fans. Enjoy your negative feedback.

    Nice post, Hulk. Dungy is one of the most respected coaches in the NFL, and his opinion carries more weight than any of the talking heads on ESPN or fishwrap writers (at least to me).

    If Williams can be half the defender that Mean Joe was back in the day, we'll get at least one championship appearance on that talent alone. Those are some big shoes to fill, but we can still stay optimistic that Mario will be a dominating presence as he learns how to deal with veteran offensive linemen.

    I appreciate those words coming from Dungy, this guy knows talented defensive guys. This being said, I'm not all down on Mario about his performance so far. It's just a matter of time before MW breaks out. This guy is still very young and the learning curve is overwhelming him at this point in time. He is going to get better but no one knows when, and I could understand if some people are frustrated with that but these people are being a'lil to overbearing with thier expectations for the guy. Don't get me wrong, I want MW to knock Manning's dome off Sunday, but the fact is he still is learning how to put together his game against 300lb linemen that are just as good as he is. For those who's saying he is a bust is just DUMB!! Get your heads out of MADDEN and realize this is the NFL. Mario will be just fine and the key word here is PATIENCE. I know some guys would disagree with my statements but this is my final answer and I'm sticking with it. One more thought for the road, comparing MW and RB is a woudda,coudda,shoudda situation that's washed up and I'm for one is satisfied on the player we got.:twocents:

    Everytime I see Mooch on NFL network, he's acting drunk or geeked up off something. Maybe it's his personality, I don't know.

    ESPN has "Jaws" though. An excellent QB in his day.:sarcasm:

    You know..... I think Ricky has shown us on the field why Ditka's trade wasn't a bad trade.

    Ditka might not have talked to & interviewed Ricky before hand, thinking he didn't have a shot at him..... so he really didn't know what he was getting into. But if Ricky wasn't such a head case, & a pothead, that would have been one of the best trades ever.

    Sure, Philly passing no Ricky(kinda like us passing on Reggie), then Indy (who along with Philly was in need of a runningback) passing on Ricky should've told him something.......

    Kubiak had to say this about moving him around..............

    I dont agree with kubiak here, HOW is playing DE and sacking QBs boreing? I could see maybe when he is in the league for a long period of time and you want him to stay focused.

    I would think "Challenging" Mario right now would be faceing guys like TreThomas, John Runyan and this week Terrick Glenn and then next week Samuales. How can you get bored facing guys like this every week and getting sacks.

    Something makes me think if Mario found success at LDE he wouldn't get bored for a really long time. I don't know, maybe that's just me.

    Ricky Williams infamously was a "cat person" on one of those psychological tests... but was pretty good when you strap the pads on him. I thought Indy took Edge for his pass catching ability though... he was a pretty nice fit there.

    I thought that was a rather strange comment from Kubiak. Bored? Not a chance.

    Methinks he was just tired of being asked why he was moving players around so much and just threw that out there. His real reason might come off sounding as critical and I don't think he wants to project that right now. He wants to keep it positive and encouraging.

    I appreciate that from Dungy. He is a class act and I respect what he has to say.
