Art called a good game Sunday.
2 games better? Please just stop. It’s over. His face is plastered all over Nashville, yet he was SOOO bad this year he still got benched.
If you actually watched the games and still somehow come away with Mariota having 2 better games this season, there is no point in having a discussion because that is not true at all.
Mariota had one good game this season, and it was against the ****ing Falcons, who get torched by everyone. It's actually kind of a letdown he didn't play better in retrospect.
Everyone was pumped he threw 3 TDs and we scored 24 against Atlanta. Fast-forward a week and Houston drops 53 on them. Arizona then proceeds to put up 34, with a rookie QB. Followed by Los Angeles scoring 37.
Mariota feasts on the weak.
Tannehill is attempting tight window throws more frequently than any other QB in the league, and has the best completion % in the league. Maybe he's the real-life Mariota, and the coaches screwed him over by trying to hide him instead of letting him throw it more (and he also legitimately needs a good line and had an awful one) 80% completion rate and 10 YPA is insane.
LA doesn't have a good defense, but they are 5th in pass defense and 10th in scoring defense, so they don't just absolutely roll over for any QB in the league like Atlanta. Watson of the only QB to do a number on them, and he can make anyone look bad.
Mariota was great against Atlanta and Cleveland. But I agreed with the change. As a lifelong dolphin fan going back to Marino, I know tannehill well. He can be a serviceable qb. But a zebra don’t change it stripes. He’s a career 88 rating QB. He has a history of good games and then so so games. Either way, draft a qb with the physical abilities to be elite. Give Tanny another year till the rookie is ready.
He’s also had 4 worse. He’s also had a career full of games that make the team sign a quality backup.
Mariota is close to the king of inconsistency.
I’m with @520 on this point. There is no justification for any QB in today’s pass happy NFL to throw for only 24 TD over 2 seasons. The league is set up for QBs to succeed and put up points, Mariota fails at this. That’s not Art’s fault, or Lafleurs fault or robiskie’s fault.
We’re they really better tho? Or just better in a stat or two? When has mariota looked half that capable all year?
Not really. Bout blew it down the stretch
