    If MM is shy on throwing deep (maybe he doesn’t trust who’s deep) or maybe it’s a confidence thing as if he throws pick he’ll get benched. If that’s the case and him in a contract year, I see him not wanting to make mistakes or make that throw Incase it ends up as a bad stat against him def now that he has a replacement that could easily take his job. I guess I’m saying if he has t thrown deep much in 4years I def don’t expect him to do it in a contract year knowing everything he does/doesn’t will be counted against him

    Mariota throws when asked. It's usually 3rd and long and he was the best at converting those last season.

    But some people only look at touchdowns and yards.

    Don’t you guys ever get sick of excuses though? Honestly? He got matched by Josh Rosen...on a bum azz squad....FOH. It’s not just about TD’s. It’s 24/23 the past 2 years....it’s the decline. He’s basically had 1 good year...It’s Not like we are dominating. 8-8/9-7 is average, and even then, it wasn’t all him. Thank our defense. As for Dion Lewis, yeah, he sucked. But he was damn good the previous year in NE. We are 1 dimensional for a reason, and to act like that is all on our wideouts is ridiculous.

    The complaints about the supporting cast go out the window when you consider that despite having a terrible offensive line, no running game, and a bunch of castoff WRs, and nearly topping the league in QB hits, Mariota had a career high in YPG and yards per attempt in his rookie season, as well as a 2/1 TD/INT ratio. He's been gun shy since '17 . There's no other reasonable explanation as to why he was so much worse than he was during his first two years in the league.

    Are we going around the wheel of excuses now? We made a change in 16, and he actually improved. Then he got worse, with no change to the coaching staff at all. He was so bad, in fact, that we HAD to get a new HC and OC in order to fix him. It's not like it was done intentionally to stunt his development.
