    I think his ceiling is 40 TD's. But everyone would have to stay healthy, the OL would have to be top 5, DH would have to beast out like last December all year, and our quartet of CD, AB, AH, and TT would have to play to their max potential with a healthy Walker...AND we'd have to be a passing team.

    Since that is unlikely, I think in this offense his ceiling is low 30's for TD's..running and throwing....with a 3:1 TD to turnover ratio. Yards is a stat fans like but I'm more concerned points, controlling the clock, moving the ball, and our 3rd down conversion rate (red zone too). If he helps us consistently with these things, I'm less concerned with his personal stats than with the whole offense and what he's doing in it.

    Our goal should be to have a top 10 offense in points, TOP, sacks, and turnovers on offense.

    MM needs to stay healthy, protect the ball better, show better pocket awareness, and be willing to throw the ball away to avoid sacks.

    If he can do that then his ceiling will certainly be that of a true franchise QB.

    I'm excited to see a jumbo package with Kelly as a 3rd OT on the field with Davis, Humphries and AJ Brown as our 3 WRs with Henry as the single RB. This would really force the defense into a tough spot...and pretty much guarantee a WR on a S/LBer.

    40 TDs this year is very unlikely unless we lose a lot of games badly and Mariota is able to run up his stats in garbage time. The team is planning to go with a run based O.

    Big year for Mariota, needs to stay healthy
    Hopefully the OL plays top 5 again, Delanie back
    Other WRs improve, addition of Humphries
    Henry picks up where he left off, Lewis shows why we signed him

    I see 3800-4000 yds, 30-32 TDs 7-8 ints
    Another 5-7 rushing for Mariota

    More passing TD's about 12 should do it , with a few less interceptions. That's it ... That's his f**king CEILING.

    Would like to be proven wrong. But he himself has made the conscious decision to prove the "haters" correct.
