Ok I’m bored sat at an airport so thought I’d speculate on MM8s future... From my point of view this is season is make or break for him. The extremes are easy - If he plays to a high standard he gets tagged / new deal and if he’s injured again or below par we move on. However, what do we do if he is healthy and produces middling numbers and we go 9-7 again? This season and previous few have shown on the whole that the teams that go deep into the play offs have elite QBs. I’d say it’s easier for our franchise if Mariota declares himself one way or another this year but can well imagine another ‘stuck in the middle’ campaign. Thoughts?
