    Mary needs to push the ball downfield but I have no faith that he can actually do that. Throws off his back foot too much. Panics in the pocket. It's time to move on unless he can learn to not be terrified to be a franchise qb.

    He doesn't trust his Oline... even when they protect him.

    Not sure if he'll gain that back... maaaaaybe if Lewan comes back, but that's a big if.

    He needs to suck it up. He had the chance to make a LOT of money.

    Not defending him... just saying that's his problem. But I think he's full on Carr, at this point.

    They were debating, on the radio this morning, whether or not Mariota reinjured himself yesterday, maybe some callers...

    It's really more of a... "is that really better..?"

    Dude I was thinking the same thing. That seemed like a terrible decision. You've got to have a quick out play in that situation.

    1. Its Tannehill time
    2. I dont wanna hear any crap about our WR group. Corey and AJ would be crushing like Ridley, Kupp, and Juju had they gone to those teams.
    3. Bad kicking game for both squads. Santos missed FG could've been the win. Also, we may have just watched the last game of Vinateris amazing career.
    4. Lewan cant come back soon enough.

    Mariota can't make the throws, that's why he holds onto the ball so long. Mariota is not a pocket passer in the vein of Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, or Tom Brady. So, he will not be good at sitting in the pocket and finding receivers and throwing into tight windows. Rather than risk an INT, he'd
    rather rely on his legs or
    take a sack. This is not bad, but that needs to be the team's third or forth option, wit the first option being D. Henry or 25-30 touches/game and second option having a D that will give up no more than two TD's /game.

    The only challenge I have is that the team game plans as if it needs Mariota to step up and be a good, franchise QB. With his skill set and fragility, he isn't a NFL franchise QB. At this point, they should find a "game manager" QB and rely on the running game and strong D to win games (it can be done, 2001 Ravens). Mariota won't be the reason why/if the teams wins big (make it to the Super Bowl), but he won't lose games for you, if the game plan is to run the ball and play D.

    The team must answer this question: How much is he worth going forward? How much is willing to take to be a game manager staring QB rather than a Franchise QB?

    Left Tackle was not the issue yesterday, it was the huge holes opening up around the Center/Right Guard area where the line was imploding.
