    Backup QB has better production even after kissing an entire year with ACL, worse rosters and coaching.

    Uh, no. Stop for a minute, go back and read what I wrote, think about the context, and then respond.

    I think were more likely to get a como pick if we let Mariota walk at the end of this season

    I don’t need to go back and read it. You said that arguing Mariota is better than Tannehill to any rational person shows he isn’t the franchise guy.

    Then I pointed out an example (on this forum nonetheless) where people were saying we don’t need Peyton Manning because we had Jake Locker. I, among many others, were arguing that point. So by your standards that means Peyton isn’t a franchise QB because he was being compared to and argued over Jake Locker.

    Just playing devils advocate and showing you that just because someone is arguing that x is better than y doesn’t mean anything - especially on this board. It’s a silly point you were trying to make.

    Made up stuff by people frustrated by Mariota. No one has ever had a good argument about his effort.

    I do agree with Brave about him slinging it though. Hes going to have to this season. Caution is fine but hes going to have to give the WRs a chance to go up and get the ball.

    My critiques of Mariota was not taking off fast enough in the pocket/pocket awareness. And his ball security early on. The fumbles got me more than most of his picks. I think he's definitely improved on ball security and has consistently got better with pocket awareness. Especially at the end of last year. Then he got injured.

    My concern is moving on too early from a piece you'll have the longest on your team. Even as Mariota ages he'll still be faster than most QB's. He'll prob never be "slow" if he takes care of his body and avoids big injuries. You never know if he can be better than Watson or Luck until we see him with some consistency on offense, weapons, and a staff that lets him air it out. I think we'll finally get to see that this year.

    I think it'll only be an injury that sets him back. I think he's an elite competitor who has the skillset to be an elite NFL QB. If he is, we still need a Tennehill or other top backup because we'll be playing for wins (playoffs) and security if we make it and have an injury. I think we've neglected the backup QB spot too long.

    I'm happy with the pickup but tired of the unwarranted hate Mariota gets (not that he doesn't have critiques).

    A couple of things I'll point out.
    LOL!

    So if anyone suggests a comparison of a backup and a starter...the starter is automatically no longer able to be a franchise QB? Funny!

    Someone suggested a comparison between the two in a single game. Most backups have 1 good game. The very POINT of my post is to compare one game is meaningless. Mariota is vastly superior...and that's in a bad year for him.

    So you haters can chill. Mariota either will or will not get it done this year. If he does, he gets signed and you guys can cry or get on board. If he doesn't, we'll see how Tanny does and then look for a new QB in the next good QB class.

    It's gonna get played out one way or the other...so not much point in hating now.
