Who are the teams that would pay him big money?
Most teams have drafted a young QB or have a vet in place with a big contract already. Aren’t many teams left at this point.
Can't see many teams in need of a QB
Chargers? Who's behind Rivers? Tyrod Taylor
Jags? Foles may not last to see that contract
TB? If Winston doesn't perform
NE, Brady retires...Mariota goes on to win multiple SuperBowls
There's always mutliple teams in need of a QB. Every single year, without fail.
Ah, so if he throws 48 TD's, then you agree you shouldn't nitpick? I see...LOL!
So you don't think it's nitpicking to say he was ineffective for 3 quarters? I'd say it isn't nitpicking so much as it is flat out wrong! What happened to you doing a little research before posting? Don't worry, there are people like me who catch made up stuff...
Here are the actual numbers...
Q1-----3/5 (60%) with 11.8ypa. Out of his 3 completions, 2 went for first downs and 1 was a 47yd chunk play. Good for a 101.2 QB rating. I'd say that's effective given his mere 5 attempts.
Q2-----5/13 (38%) with 3.5ypa. Out of his 5 completions, 3 were first downs and he had 2 sacks. Clearly this was not a very effective quarter and where he struggled the most. Only a 48.9 QB rating.
Q3-----4/4 (100%) with a 31.2ypa. Out of his 4 completions, 2 were first downs and 2 were 20+yds (big plays) and 1 TD! Good for a 158.3 qb rating.
Q4-----2/2 (100%) with a 9.0ypa. Out of his 2 completions, both were first downs and both were TD's!!! Good for a 143.8 QB rating.
So it looks like he had one bad Qarter but was effective in the other 3 quarters! Is that what you meant? He was EFFECTIVE for 3 quarters!
So let's play this out. Suppose Mariota throws/runs for 30 TD's and has 15 TO's and throws for 3800 yds...partially because we are a run first team. We go 10-6 and win 1 playoff game. You decide he's not worth 25mil/yr and is no longer gonna be on our team in 2020.
Who are you signing to be our starter for 2020? Who (and how) are you drafting anyone?
If you watched the game you know he played poorly for most of the game.
This is what the coach had to say about his performance...
''He was composed,'' Vrabel said of Mariota. ''He got us into all the right plays. They were pressuring, and some of those things weren't easy. It wasn't perfect. He will tell you he missed some throws, but he competed.
far from a ringing endorsement.
Think about it. Let's say Drew Brees, Phillip Rivers, Brady are either retiring or will in another year or two. Add Miami, Raiders, Jags, and someone who thought they had a QB but ends up they don't. If he puts up top 15 numbers and 'leads' the team to the playoffs, someone will pay him.
Then what do we get with no QB, the 25th pick in the draft and not a ton of cap room?!
Yes, I think we can agree he didn't play well in Q2. Which of the other quarters did you think he played poorly? Not sure how you think he played poorly most of the game when he was perfect in the 2nd half and played well in Q1....?
Considering how poorly the offensive line did at stopping the pass rush, I think Mariota did VERY well. No turnovers, no stupid mistakes, 3 TD passes. And most importantly, led the offense to score a LOT of points.
Mariota has done this before. Played super well one game, and super poorly another.
Its playing CONSISTENTLY well, that Mariota has to do.
