I don't think that you can say that Mario Williams was a bust yet. Remember, he did have both toe nails removed during the season. Video has shown that he was double teamed all year long. He had no other d lineman getting pressure. And lastly, the guy who lined up behind him at LB won rookie of the year. Looks like he did more than the stats show.

Yeah, you know, it is suprising how many people in the media don't have a clue what they are talking about. Not just sports media, either. Anyway, all these guys judge DE's by is the # of sacks recorded. Seems kind of silly, when half the plays are running plays and even on passing plays there are plenty of ways to contribute besides making sacks. But you see a guy with less than 10 sacks a year and there isn't much chance anyone will consider him a good DE. Go figure. :roll:

I love the commentary here today. I'm actually leaning towards Landry as our best choice as it would hopefully shore up our secondary and cut down on the 20+ yard plays we gave up last year especially on third down. I also agree we need DE and DT help. We especially need a wide body two gap tackle to hog up the middle and a mean pass rushing DE but going with the best player available appears to be Landry. He appears to be a fit in how GW likes to blitz and give give differnet stunts and looks. :idea: It's a crapshoot and it will be interesting to see what we do on draft day. My two cents....

Not that I hate the idea of Landry, but it seems we have addressed the secondary and LB corps and haven't done anything on the D-Line. I don't think we need an overhaul, but going with what we had last year concerns me and how do we address it in any meaningful way now w/o the 6th pick?

I have to admit I was supporting the Briggs trade raising the same question, but at least we got the #31 pick that way.
