    Has it clicked ? 3.5 sacks against broncos... Looks unstoppable...

    Looking like the right choice at number 1, considering Bush hasnt been as good as expected...

    Definitely the right pick by Houston. I can't see Bush ever being much more then a Dave Meggett type back.

    Too bad the Texans didnt end up making the wrong decision by taking Bush. Mario Williams might be a Jet today if they did.

    We should fire Tannebaum and hire Casserly who is only doing tv right now. He obviously is a lot smarter then all the talking heads who blasted him on draft day.

    3.5 vs the Broncos... That's, in his last 5 games- 8 sacks

    Jeeze man.... This guy looks better than predicted when he was drafted...

    Considering the current play of Young and Bush, this guy was clearly the right pick

    Where did he come from all of a sudden? 13 sacks this year.

    Think about it . . . Did he have anyone else on the line with him last year? I wouldn't say so. Come to think of it, Amobi Okoye isn't doing badly at all, either.

    He was always my favorite player in that draft, I take him all the time in Madden Fantasy Drafts. I'm sure they'll make him around 93-94 next year now cause of this.

    3 out of the 4 players on their starting d-line are first rounders.

    Travis Johnson, Mario Williams, and Amobi Okoye. He did have help last year, it just takes time to get adjusted to the NFL.

    Everyone knew Williams would be a dominant force in the NFL, they were just upset that the Texans took him over to flashy players like Bush and Young.

    The only way to determine a player's worth in this league is by looking at his Madden rating.

    I love lamp.


    Don, are you just looking at stats and stuff and saying you like guys/hate guys?

    How many times have you actually watched Saints games this year?

    Which wouldn't matter because Mangini would have him rotting away as a 3-4 end.

    He looked very impressive last night... has a legit argument of being the best DE in the game right now.

    Personally I think Eric Metcalf every time I see Reggie Bush play.

    That's a better comparison.

    I didn't enjoy watching Saints games through the first 13 weeks of the season. The excessive passes completed to Bush at or near the line of scrimmage were mind-boggling. So many of them were plays where no human was going to gain yardage.

    Yeah, a guy can't do everything by himself.

    The Texans also drafted Demeco Ryans last year and he's having a dominant year playing linebacker behind that defensive line that is built with 3 first rounders and a former Raven that was a 2nd rounder.

    Travis Johnson, Mario Williams, Anthony Weaver, and Amobi Okoye. That's a hell of a line, and they're only going to get better.

    Watch out for Houston next year...and for many years after that. (Especially if they get a decent running game)

    I don't think he'd be wasted at 3-4 end.

    He's so big and athletic that he could probably handle that position. And the scary part is that his athleticism would probably allow him to stand up at times and just pass rush like the beast he is.

    Mario is one of the strongest, most athletic players in the NFL...probably the single most athletic player in the NFL honestly. He could thrive wherever he's asked to thrive.

    Anyway, nice to see that the Texans made the smart move with him, and it's even better to see that he's outproducing Vince and Bush.
