Mario's First Drive Against the Titans.

Hearing all the talk about players not putting in the effort made me decide to re-watch the first drive of the game to see if I thought Mario was putting in 100%

My conclusion will be seen below...





1 – run – 1-on-1 RT – Never able to shed the blocker. Was driven 5 yards away from the play.

2 – pass – 1-on-1 RT – got some push, but didn’t reach QB.

3 – quick pass – 1-on-1 RT – never had time to do anything.

4 – long pass – 1-on-1 RT – tried a pass rush move. No success.

5 – 10 yard pass – 1-on-1 RT – dominated by RT.

6 – run – 1-on-1 with TIGHT END – dominated. Unable to disengage.

7 – screen pass – 1-on-1 with RT – speed rush, unable to get to QB before screen to left side.

8 – OFF the field – Kelsay had good success putting pressure on QB from LDE position against RT.

9 – OFF the field – Chris Johnson run up the middle – 15 yard touchdown.

In short, it was a 9 play drive in which the titans marched down the field for an easy touchdown (much like all their other drives in that game!). My opinion - I HOPE Mario was not putting in 100%. Because if that was his best effort, the Buffalo Bills WASTED $100 million.

It's one thing to be shut down by a double-team. But Mario didn't see a singal double-team. In fact, he only saw 1-on-1 blocking, and one time was shut down by a tight end. A TIGHT END.

Meanwhile, Kelsay and Chris Merriman come in on play 8 and get the most pressure of any play on the drive. It's a small sample size, and only 4 days before he got his "procedure" done on his wrist. But, it was ugly nonetheless.

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
