The best and brightest Phoenix has to offer
Lots of discussion on ESPN's Get Up show on Mariota this morning.
They talked of inconsistencies—how he has been good in the red zone but misses a lot of easy downfield passes. Another said there is no way they can know how good Mariota is because he's had so many offenses to learn.
Pretty typical of the national media who only look at stat lines.
Most of their off-air "work" time is spent preparing for their next show, I assume. It sure isn't spent watching tape, as is the case with every single other talking head. Greg Cosell watched the majority of his snaps last year, and presented a good breakdown of him. That's probably the only unbiased or intelligible analysis I've found.
So what was Greg's analysis
I believe that he is no fan of Mariota. He has previously bashed his pocket instincts and mechanics. But he did specify his strengths, "firm touch throws" (which I believe to be seam throws), and just a general belief that he'd be more successful if aggressive on third down. He compared him to Goff, meaning that he was a "system QB" who required an effective running game and schemed throws.
He was quite complimentary of Davis, and thought that LaFluer did a good job, despite the objections of the homers
Im not in agreement with his analysis and neither is this guy.
Marcus Mariota is a Star
Just to keep it simple. Stay healthy and everything else will come into play unless we do some retarded and go into this season leaning on a rb to carry the offense.
Mariota has not declined. His stats have. Stay healthy and build the offense around what he does at a very high level which is operating in shotgun and we good.
It's everyone else's fault... he could have said that in 4 words.
Yes he could have. So be more appreciative of the fact that he went into great detail why.
