    Unfortunately, I’m not employed by the Titan’s organization. I’ll let the professionals work this out.

    The tricky part is getting NFL defenses to play like Washington state.

    I'm not one to beat this Mariota topic over and over but i'll say this. I understand people saying that exotic smashmouth football was the best system for Mariota but that type of offense isn't sustainable in the NFL today. Back in the day that style was all you needed along with a good defense. Sure you are going to win games and the Titans did but the game is evolving offensively every year. Not maximizing talent at your skilled positions to mask the flaws of your QB is not the way to do it.

    That offensive style with a good defense is going to get you exactly where it's gotten us the past 3 years. Most of us have been fans for quite sometime and know how bad it's been around here at times. I give credit to Murlarkey for changing the culture of the team and getting the team pointed in the right direction. But if the Titans plan on being legit contenders they need a hell of a lot more from the QB position than what they are getting. Year 5 and Mariota still talking about needing to check the ball down instead of taking the sack. Still talking about keeping his eyes downfield while alluding the rush. smh. This is QB football 101 in the NFL. I just don't get it.

    The offense line is in shambles I get it but there's plays out there to be made. Fire power all over the field and the offense is regressing hard. Defense getting gassed from being on the field all damn day. This anemic offense is going to start taking a toll on the players not only on the offensive side but the defensive side as well. Something has gotta give or else this is going to be another long frustrating season.

    Well said. I agree as well. He has chances last game, and full on missed. He basically had one good throw to Hump downfield, and never did it again. We have weapons, we have skill, and we can’t move the ball. That falls on Mariota. You can’t miss check downs and take unnecessary sacks as an NFL QB. You also can’t miss wide open receivers and screw around in the pocket. It’s really disappointing man. We are screwed keeping him in, and there is no way in the world that the coaches can’t see that. Accept that he didn’t work out here and move on for the good of the team.

    I'm really quite amazed you havent heard any frustrations leaking out of the locker room at all about mariota. Davis, hump, even walker. You gotta figure they ain't happy.

    Absolutely. Can you imagine going into a game know you aren’t getting chances as a receiver? I’d be straight pissed off after this long.

    Making my occasional return to the forum to say that I'm totally bummed about the Mariota situation. I've been as big a fan of his as anyone, but he just looks broken out there.

    Back in his first few years, I felt like we were always in the game when he was under centre. Just watching these last few games, he looks like a completely different cat out there. Forcing throws into coverage, missing on short/intermediate throws that should be easy. Basically struggling on all of the things he used to be so automatic on.

    For years, I was of the camp that the faults weren't on him. And hey, maybe they still aren't. But it's clear that he's not working out here, whoever is to blame.

    It pains me to say it, but I think it's time to move on. I would be happy to see Mariota thrive with another team, because I love the dude and want all the best for him. Better yet, he becomes the legend in Tennessee he was always supposed to be, but unless things suddenly turn around, I think a mutual breakup is best for everyone.
