    You are a piece of work!

    He goes in to be evaluated and to get you complain (and makeup that he’s been benched for no good reason) that he’s not out cheering his teammates on. Don’t they have cheerleaders for that? But seriously, are you suggesting he should not get evaluated and not get treatment so he can be a cheerleader?


    Of course, if he didn’t get treatment to try and come back to’d say he quit on the team or some other such nonsense!!!

    You are an effective troll...which is about the only positive thing I can say for these posts regarding Mariota. But it’s rather astonishing to see you makeup stuff, lie about other stuff, and come up with solutions that would not only NOT improve our situation, but cripple our cap at the same time?

    If you don’t like Mariota that’s fine. But stick with facts when you blast him and try to understand the context of those stats since that MATTERS!!! Plenty of things for you to ‘hate’ on without having to distort or makeup stuff which ruins ALL of your CREDIBILITY!!!

    $13mil/yr is dreaming. There are backup qb’s making more so that is way too low. The pressure for him to have a big number are the big plays he can make with his arm and feet, fourth qtr comebacks and his heart, intelligence, and winning attitude. Add in his draft pedigree (top 3 pick) and many gms would conclude he’s a potential franchise if he had an ol that protected him better and he had the same system year in and year out. Two more major forces are his agent who will want to get the BIGGEST deal possible...and the NFLPA who will also want him to take the most money to keep driving up contracts.

    The forces pushing his value lower are his stats.

    What are the other options? Foles who could retire at any time and has ONLY been good under two playcallers who aren’t here (meaning we don’t know how good he’d be in our system and our much weaker OL)? Flacco doesn’t look like anyone’s first choice as an answer. If the Titans only win 9 we aren’t picking anywhere near high enough for a ‘franchise’

    I think the Titans would be looking to pay him $20mil/yr for a significant contract with a high but spread out guaranteed money.

    Why Mariota and Casey both look like they haven't left the couch in over a year?

    Why do some people feel the need to post unsubstantiated nonsense?

    I’m still undecided on Mariota. Every time I’m ready to move on he has a great game to bring me back in. As someone posted in another thread I’ve come to accept that with Marcus you get 4 great games, 4 terrible games, and 8 games ranging from terrible to mediocre every season. Another thing is the injuries. Never played a full season in the league. Bottom line is if your franchise quarterback is always hurt, and missing playoff games (which last week and this week effectively are), that’s a terrible look. I hate the fact that every time MM8 even gets touched I have to hold my breath, wondering if he’s gunna be hurt or not.

    Bottom line, though, is that he’s better than anything in the 2019 draft or free agency. If he doesn’t improve next year, go all in on Tua in 2020.

    We don't really know that though. Plenty of guys who aren't considered top prospects go on to become very good, great, or even HoF type QBs.

    But I tend to agree. Hope he, by some miracle, actually becomes great and manages to stay healthy in his 5th year and if not move on.

    see, for entirely different reasons I agree with the "5th" year or bust. MM8 is completing nearly 70 percent of his passes this year which is FRICKIN GREAT by any measure. If DW comes back healthy and cd continues to develop then I truly believe MM8 will put up fantastic numbers.

    Fact: Mariota didn't come back onto the field after injury before halftime to cheer on his team in a must win game.

    Fact: there is no treatment he can get for either a stinger or funny bone, therefor him staying inside only raises legitimate questions on his whereabouts.
