    Then we have fans that want to, essentially, replace Mariota with... "Mariota".

    I don't think anyone is really clamoring for Tannehill to be the longterm answer here.

    And I didn't say that. They just want to replace one with the same.

    I guess I just don't know what you mean by "replace". Do people actually not want to give Mariota this season to see what he can do?

    He has had 4 and we know what he can do. I just don't see how this season makes a difference. Even if he has a solid season, he has proven he is not the answer. Even if he had a great season, I would not trust it. He is who and what he is, we need a better qb.

    I tend to agree with you. But we have so much invested in him (both time and draft capital) it would be pretty foolish to not give him this season and hope for the best. If he balls out, no I would still not quite trust him as the answer either. But there is always the franchise tag for that scenario.

    If he has a great season, he would have proven he could do it.

    Most of us agree that this is a prove it year. If the team didnt think this season mattered, we would have moved on

    You dont put someone in a prove it year and ignore it if they prove it.

    In the unlikely event that Mariota lights it up, your views of him will change.


    I've always said I'd tag him again and ask him to prove it again but I'm sure his agent would laugh and ask for a trade or something when his clients value is at its peak.



    The real delima will be if he plays "good enough" and shows improvement. That would be a much tougher decision than giving him a contract after a great season.

    "Even if he had a great season, I would not trust it. He is who and what he is, we need a better qb"



    If he is who he is, he wouldn't have a great season.
