    So if he can't play well when he's injured... and he's pretty much always injured... then...

    I tend to think he's just having a bad year, regardless of "injury"

    Sophomore slump in year number 3. Quite possible.

    Mariota played an absolutely awful game. Now he will be excused, because it was all due to being injured.
    However playing an injured QB doesn't offer any protection from criticism of the coaches. That was what I was pointing out.

    How many designed QB run plays did they call in the Arizona game?

    Do you have a backyard or maybe a field nearby? Try going out there, run a few meters and then slide feet first. I guarantee you will get it right the first time. Sliding to protect yourself is not something you need coaching to do!

    He's only played 5 games under a different coaching staff (remember Whisenhunt, who almost got Mariota killed his rookie season?), so that's a ridiculous statement.

    You just need to read through this thread to see that I'm right. People are doubling down on their defense of Mariota.

    The reporter is the only one making this an excuse. Mariota has said he's good. Mularkey said they changed the game plan a little because of the knee.

    All in all, whatever is going on, it has beena bad season for Mariota and the whole offense. It happens to a lot of teams.

    So much has to go right for an NFL team that it shouldn't be so surprising to see teams go from worst to first and first to worst...
