    The best bit about this vid is Jones just standing there oblivious to everything happening around him.

    Mariota got sacked by his RT's ass. His pocket movement is so bad. Kline was beat initially, but he recovered. It happens all of the time.

    Just read that the Vikings brass took Kline out to dinner last night, and he'll be taking a tour of the facilities today. Are they seriously freaking wining and dining Kline?!

    Hard to imagine what he is thinking. There are 4 DL but the one to his left back out...which means there is a double team to his left if no blitz but 1v1 on his right...but he keeps looking and drifting left. A bit bizarre.

    Let's see if you get sacked when a 320lb RT gets thrown into your legs. Kline got beat badly INSIDE and that's a big no no. If Conklin and not gotten thrown inside into the QB...Mariota would have been fine. But BOTH got beaten leaving Mariota nowhere to go. He was trying to go where he's supposed to...move up in the pocket.

    So I disagree with your point. Most QB's get sacked when both G and T on same side get beaten...especially if the G gets beaten inside since that's instant pressure and the T gets thrown into you. This is about as bad as it can get since Jones could have/should have helped Kline inside and then Mariota doesn't have instant pressure and gets the ball off before Conklin gets thrown into him.

    Much of football is instincts and anticipation. Marcus doesn't have much of either. He really seems to have no idea as to when to stick in the pocket, move out of the pocket, or throw the ball away. The RT is literally a few feet away from him, can he really not sense that he's closing in and maybe moving to the position where he is would be a bad idea?

    We can look at these clips as normal human beings and justify the negative outcomes for Marcus. But they are professional athletes and should be impressing the hell out of us and doing things we can't believe. That just isn't him. If the protection is good and receiver is open, he can make a play. But much of playing QB now is making off-platform throws and making plays despite pressure . When QBscan make plays like this, it's difficult to accept Mariota's struggles with players in his face:

    I couldn't agree with this any more. This like a MF! I've tried to defend Marcus over and over but he just has not shown any killer instinct. I just don't see the maturation and I don't see the improvement. Many things are out of his control (blocking, coaching changes, no WRs) but the things he can control he should be much better at. I'm still rooting for him to put it all together but I've not seen enough to be encouraged to think he can do it.

    This is obviously an extreme example,but there are plenty of QBs who deal with pressure much better than Marcus. It's not a rare trait anymore, and many young QBs come into the league with much better instincts and pocket movement.

    People say that everyone around Mariota sucks and that's why he struggles. Can't we look at cut ups of good QBs And come to the conclusion that Marcus sucks in certain areas, and that it puts more weight on their shoulders and makes them look worse than they are?
