    Rzr

    Actually Maa Tanuvasa was a much better pass rusher, run defender and athelete than Fatafehi is.
    Maa = Stud
    Mario = Pony

He loves his corndogs. He speaks Russian, French, his native tongue (I forget which that is), Japanese & English...Pretty damn impressive if you ask me.

    He checks in over 300lbs, but if you see him not-in-uniform (in street clothes) he doesn't really look that *big*...He's got a great sense of humor about it & I think that he will produce better for us here soonly...
    Plus, he's a Kansas State alum. That's the most important part...

    Exactly...And by knowing about his educational background and his random facts, you know that he's in this to play the game--With his education, he could easily do anything else and probably get paid a competitive wage--but he loves football (and corndogs!) and just wants to play!

    I think that's definitely true in a lot of cases. But, more importantly to me, I feel better about rooting for a player on my team if he's of higher character.

    When Romo was here I always felt slightly uncomfortable about him. I want to cheer for guys like Rod Smith, Al Wilson, Ed McCaffrey, and Terrell Davis. Guys who are pure class off the field mean you don't have reservations when you cheer for them ON the field.

    Oh yeh, and more useless trivia about Fatafehi...

    He was very nervous about not making the team & was scared to death when his hotel room phone started ringing the day of the cuts. He was almost afraid to answer it because he knew if it was the Broncos, that it meant he was to be packing up...But he answered it anyway and about killed his friends--They called on the hotel phone instead of his cellular phone to see if he had any news yet!

    He stayed in a hotel all season, because of his uncertainty of his stay here...

    My, My, you definitely did know Mario. Most of only know him from the T.V. or live games that we went to. I saw him in the autograph line in training camp but that was all.

    I still think he doesn't have to worry about making the team, and needs to put in some roots. He has a lot of potential.

    His sacks stand out the most out of any I remember last year...

    The guy seems to play with much intensity and is a definite crowd pleaser...he's a keeper

    Damn BD.... With your assessment, one would think you were scoping out a potential hubby :p

    I really don't know much about him to be quite honest. I'm still a bit reserved as to how our D-Line will function this year. I really don't see much in the way of a "stand out" in the current rotation.
    Time will tell.

    Nuff said...

    Not only did Fatafehi get 2.5 sacks, but he did a great job in rushing the passer and as mentioned stopping the run. He has some real upside. Most of the D-Lineman in the Denver scheme rotate in and out to keep a fresh line in all the time. The only one that does not as much is Trevor Pryce.

    I hope Fatafehi gets more playing time, he seems like he could really develop. Of course you also have Pope, and Luther Ellis who was pretty good when he played for Detroit.
