    This was really satisfying to hear for those of us who have done a lot of arguing on behalf of Mario for the last couple years. I found an article a couple weeks ago that blamed the houston media for being the ones that made everyone believe Bush was a better player :rolleyes:

    The white guy from PTI said "people" were wrong during the draft but the other one pointed out that they were guilty too but it was half ass. Rome is the first to come out CLEARLY and BOLDLY admit that he was flat wrong. ESPN's main page has never featured the new pario and page2 (a huge and brutal critic) hasn't touched the subject.

    This is a wrap up of Jim's take on the radio which he went through word for word on his TV show.

    I'd like to repost this gem from a Daily Texan (UT student paper) writer from Sept 06. I think it speaks wonders of the kind of **** they were coming up with last year:

    A Standing Ovation for Mr Rome for doing what few in the sports media world have the ability or are willing to admit to villifying Mario and redress that egregious mistake.

    Jim Rome may be an obnoxious ass from time to time. He may sometimes talk to hear his head rattle but occasionally he takes the time to get it right separating fact from fiction.

    Kudos to Jim Rome for MAN'ing up! :D While guys like Olbermann are beyond arrogant and blindly stupid in their gross misanalyses. :rolleyes:

    He's absolutely right! Mario last year could average 2 sacks a game and he still would have been considered a bust! Why because VY WAS THE MAN last year! Key word: WAS!

    I agree with Jim..."best of all" is that Mario never lashed back. He never acted jackass about it. He just showed it on the field. That shows HUGE character...and it's very easy to root for a guy like that.

    I certainly had my doubts about Mario. But I was absolutely wrong. He's a beast.

    i can't find that thread in the hangout that everyone posted the over/under for the NFL season.

    i remember setting the bar at 6.5 sacks for Mario and EVERYONE took the under. :eek:

    COUNT CHOC U LA

    One thing Rome forgot is that Mario was playing hurt last year and never practiced as a rookie.

    Is that kid still a writer for the UT paper? He should get emails for even daring to compare Reggie Bush to Barry Sanders.

    Not only did he compare him to Barry Sanders, he inferred he was better.

    I like Jim Rome's radio show. He is very entertaining and I get a lot of laughs out of his show. I know a lot don't like him, but I am the few that do enjoy his radio show. :D

    Actually, the writer implied Reggie was more talented than Barry Sanders. You inferred his bias from his article.

    I gained a little respect for him, but he still annoys the hell out of me.

    Why even bother quoting from a student college paper? You may as well quote some joker's typo-filled blog.

    That said, nice to see the shift finally start to happen within the media. Peter King, avid Bush lover, even reversed stance this past week.
