    How did you read he said he can beat a team of 53 by himself when he said he outperformed ONE OTHER PLAYER - the opposing QB???

    A couple of things...

    First, team record has to be put into context. When Mariota comes to the 2nd worst team in the league, are you blaming him for our record? Then I guess you'll also be crediting him with 3 9-7 seasons, right? No? I didn't think so.

    Second, pointing out that Mariota can and has outplayed other prominent QB's is important so that people can see he CAN be that good. BUT, his problem has been not being that good all season. He needs to be much more consistent game in and game out. It's that inconsistency (and injuries) that have stopped him from putting up solid year end numbers in addition to some easy dropped balls.

    Third, JRob has understood where our problems were/are. We have upgraded OL (and still will I believe in the draft or post draft), WR, and backup QB...all problems last year. RBun game was a major problem too until Henry exploded in December. Part of that was better OL play (Kelly at RT), better playcalling (ran some more power concepts), and some Henry playing better. I think they are hoping Henry keeps up his play, add in the return of Walker and a better OL, and the run game should be Good-Great. That will seriously help our passing offense too.

    Point is, Mariota is at a turning point. He'll either play well enough to get a new contract and continue being this team's franchise qb or he won't. He has shown flashes...games worth...but he needs to do it more. Is his problem the OL, lack of receiving weapons, poor playcalling or whatever...or just him? We'll find out soon enough. But JRob is taking away all of the excuses (or trying to) with improving the OL and giving him more weapons and getting Walker back and another year of maturity for CD and Taylor.

    Either way, we'll still be Titans fans.

    Here's to hoping for a great season!!!

    PS - I was at the last SB we went to. I'm ready for another!!! (Though I'd like to win this next one!!!;)

    That's probably the most accurate and reasonable post in the entire thread, imho.

    Gut please stop with the logical, thought out posts, they are lost on many. Just go for the the H5, hit the target ratings and just say Mariota sucks.

    Why would mariota get credit for 9-7 seasons when passing game is literally the worst part of our team every one of those years LOL

    What’s reasonable about crediting the worst part of our team for winning seasons and saying qb vs qb stats matter on an game to game basis
