Well, you think perhaps the reason Mariani has done jack as a WR his first year may have to do something with the coaches we had last year?
Our coaches were known for 1. not wanting to play rookies, and 2. not using WR's to their full extent.
lets try to keep the thread on the topic and not on whatever RT has for his pic and sig...
i agree with Bean, Fisher was known to be stubborn whenever there was a change in the lineup.... heck it took a lot out of Britt to get him in the starting role...
Mariani has the best hands on the team, he'll find the field, don't anybody worry about that kid not playing WR, he will. All you have to do is see him practice, he's really good.
Mariani is the white Wes Welker
No 7th rd Wrs hardly ever play much for any team as rookies.
We have a seen a lot of rookies getting playing time over the past several years if you paid attention. Britt played a lot as a rookie and Cj gained over 1300 yards as a rookie. Griffen started every game in 2007 as a rookie and Finnegan was our NB as a rookie.
I guess the fact that one of the Wrs playing ahead of Mariani in the depth chart was also a rookie last year never hit home to you either?
didn't see mariani in the video from the mock game... anyone know how he did as a WR or if he even played?
I'll believe it when I see it. Also I think we should be a bit more patient with the guy. I like Mariani, but think about how long it took Welker to really become a focal point of an offense and to be a good slot receiver. Welker had 29 receptions his second year and 67 his third. Then all of a sudden Tom Brady starts throwing him the ball and here we are. And I mean sure, Locker might be the next Tom Brady but I'm not going to hold my breath.
I hope he gets a chance to compete, but I'd rather see Washington or DWill in the slot.
Ok I'm not gonna go with the same lame comments about mariani like I usually do.But come on people lets get real Marc mariani is a Donnie Nickey on offense and its pretty sad to see fan's hoping for crappy players like him to do good., I love Hawk but I know that its a long shot for him to do good same with Marc Mariani same with ealy Edison and other WR's who did GOOD in PRACTICE but did nothing on the field.
Also D.Willians AND Hawk clearly deserve more playing time then Mariani they both have played well in games.Yes I do hate mariani but I'm not that dumb I rather play Mariani at WR then Justin Gage or Nate sometimes.Botton line MM is David Carr a good special team's guy and that's it nothing more.
I like to to think of Mariani as the Titans "Austin Collie".....minus the concussions of course
