After Thursday's 3.5 sack performance versus Denver, Williams now has 13 sacks with two games remaining. Believe it or not, there's a reason I bring up such riveting information. Take a look at what I wrote in my 8/27/07 preseason Q & A with Wess:
"My out-of-nowhere sleeper to be much-improved would be Houston. I think if Mario Williams tosses up 15 sacks (which is plausible) he could make things a whole lot easier for folks like Demeco Ryans."
Please...somebody, anybody, find me a human outside the city of Houston who wrote anything similar to what I did back in August. Actually, don't even try...because you'll come up empty. What you will find, though, is a bunch of scouts telling you how Williams will be a solid-but-not-spectacular run-stuffing DE with the potential to post an 8-10 sack season one day.
Do you hear that noise? It's me patting myself on the back.
