Watt looks good. What do you think we could get for Mario?

    Just asking. Mario isn't going to cut it. Not just basing on performance tonight. Basied on watching him for years.

    It's the first preseason game. The starters played 1 quarter and you're already thinking of trading Mario?

    No actually I thought he should have been traded earlier. At end of this season I don't think he will have any value. Just my opinion. And believe me I hope I am WRONG.

    You simply float that Mario could be had for the right offer. If it is sweet you do it. Reed has looked good but we need to see more of him and Barwin before you give up Mario. Let's see how WIlliams looks by game one and we should know more.

    Watt does look pretty good, but we shouldn't trade Mario. He's a little confused right now, but he'll get better.

    I am afraid it is not mental. Just not the right abilities to play the position.

    LOL I know. I just can't imagine him being our best option at THAT position, therefore if we can substantially improve in another area by trade I think it needs to be considered.

    How can Mario get lost, when his only job is to rush the qb? What's the confusion there?

    Not being hateful but there is nothing to base that on.

    Mario is a top tier END, he has done zero as an OLB. I'm willing to give him time but let's stick to facts. Watt has replaced him at DE so either Mario goes back to end (if he does not get better) and we rotate Smith/Watt & Mario & I'm ok with that if Reed & Barwin can hold the starter roles as OLB or we trade Mario to a 4-3 team like Pats for two second round picks.

    Why trade him? If he can't play OLB, then just move him back to DE.

    Because Watt looks good enough to be an every down player @DE & Mario's $14million is too much to be a rotational guy. I could be ok with it but hate to see that. I would take two 2nds right now but get more later in season.

    I disremember Watt's number being called. What do you mean by looking good?

    Can't you trade him for a REAL OLB that can help this year and maybe get draft choice or another quality player?
