    so we gave up the chance to get a pro-bowl de that is still fairly young and while some say is coming off an injury but i believe it was pectoral injury and the chance to improve our biggest need from the previous year so that we can sign an old qb that is coming off multiple neck surgeries and when we already have 2 capable starting qb's on our team all because of our owner....bud must just want to take over for al in making dumb decisions

    although it would of cost us a ton i believe mario would of been worth it over the span of his career here but now we will have to wait and see if manning signs with us and we made the right choice or not...

    the only thing that has me happy about being a titan fan right now it the signing of hutch....

    Not worth paying a mega contract to a guy who hasn't had double digit sacks in 3 years.

    Agreed. I mean, Abraham (who we are going to look at) has had 23 sacks the last two years, and will cost a fraction of the money Mario got.

    I wanted Mario, too. I think he's a really good player. But I just can't imagine that we would have ever given him $100 million over 6 years.

    Honestly, I think I prefer Abraham over Williams...but only slightly more. It's hard to argue against his stats (even though 3 sacks came from one Jaguars game). That is a lot of production...production that is sorely missed on our defense.

    If he doesn't demand 12M/year, let's get it done. I wouldn't pay him any more than 8M/year.
