    Vrable isn't a proven coach. He is just there for his name and not ability. Fire him now

    This is the truth...the coaches don't have any skills to teach. There are just stupid hires getting paid to stand there. The players know this

    Yeah, I'm not impressed so far. His decision making has cost the team a few wins and why can't he get the players fired up and motivated to destroy teams at home.

    The worst part is you can't even talk football with your friends because your team sucks so bad there is nothing to say.

    This is true. I just get water at the water cooler. Kind of politely nod at others and leave.

    Yeah, because that's entirely what I was saying.... jesus, quit poking your head into discussions which you don't have the mental capacity to isolate...

    If glue sniffers like 520 had their hand in the draft pick selection jar, the next guy WOULD be even worse....

    Was thinking more like a tackling dummy. You can run over them. You have 2 atlest go around the pole for a turnstyle.

    Nobody is disputing that there are other issues. But you guys have been blaming the crap offense on head coaches (been through 3 in marys tenure) OCs (been though at least 4) weapons (been through a bunch) and line (been through a bunch).

    At a certain point, you gotta look at the constant.

    If Mary can only thrive in ideal conditions, he won't hack it in the NFL. Ideal conditions do not exist.

    This is EXACTLY what I've been saying for awhile now. There is a (ever decreasing in size) segment of our fanbase who will point the finger at any and every thing to avoid admitting Mariota just doesn't have it. If it's not the playcalling, it's the receivers. If it's not the receivers, it's the OL. If it's not the OL, it's that he doesn't have a run game. If it's not the run game, it's that he isn't fully healthy. And on and on and on.

    It's not even that the "excuses" aren't legitimate. Many of them are. But FFS, at a certain point you just have to say, excuses or not, the guy simply hasn't proven himself as the answer for this team. ESPECIALLY, when we're faced with a decision on potentially giving him anywhere in the neighborhood of a $100m contract. Do we really want to tie our franchise/potential success to this guy for another 5 years? What do we lose, really, by letting him walk?

    As you said, ideal conditions do not exist in this league (or at the very least they are extremely rare). If your guy needs everything around him to be perfect to be successful, I mean, what good is he really? Any halfway decent QB should be able to be successful with a top OL, top run game, top WR group, top defense, etc. That's not what makes a franchise QB. A legit franchise QB should be a guy who can play well DESPITE not having all of those things all of the time.

    Seattle is allowing pressure at a higher rate than we are. Russell Wilson is on pace for 4,500 yards, 38 TDs, 0 INTs, he's taken 9 fewer sacks, and most importantly, they are winning.
