    Rhianna turns down halftime show

    Not particularly. He's objectively talented but not my taste.

    Rhianna turns down halftime show

    Good. Not because she's making a political stance but because most of her music sucks. I wish Beyonce had turned it down. I'd like Kanye to do it for obvious reasons.

    Blaming MM for Baltimore loss is SAD

    Don't let the chicken littles fool you; this is a good coaching staff.

    Mularkey's run scheme was awesome. The play-calling and passing game however were pretty bad. I turned on Mularkey late but would've been fine with him going forward had he let Robiskie go and brought in a real OC to help the passing game.

    Don't disagree with any of this and have expected defenses to figure Mariota out for a while now. I don't think Marcus is dead in the water but he needs to improve or we're fucked.

    And yet objectively, what you expect to see doesn't match the totality of what we've actually seen during his career. Last week was an outlier game and comparatively more of an outlier than Philly was, period. No spin, just facts.

    The Ravens was an even bigger outlier than the Eagles game. To suggest that what happened last Sunday is normal for Mariota is flat out inaccurate.

    I mean if we're talking about the beef ramen then fuck him.

    I get that it's uncomfortable to deal with people shitting on your opinion and it can feel personal at times but as a TR vet you know that it comes with the territory.

    Can you please stop playing the victim card? We all make unpopular opinions and understand that we'll have to take some heat for it. You're not a martyr.

    I've been saying this since last season and finally it's starting to resonate. The interior OL is fucking trash and devastating this team. They're the reason we can't pass or run. Last year everyone was up in arms about Henry bouncing runs outside when it was obvious he was doing it because there were no holes inside. What we're seeing this season is what happens when you try to run inside with this OL. I bet if we start running outside more, we'll have at least a bit more success. The interior OL is going to get Mariota injured and the mouth-breathers will either give them a complete pass or just pay lipservice for a second so that they can then lay all the blame at Mariota's feet. J-Rob needs to address this OL in the off-season and I think he will.

    Cian Fahey reviews all 11 sacks. Who is at fault?

    It is very difficult to know for sure what Lewis's assignment was. On the surface, I agree with your assessment but as I told people when they blamed every sack on Henry, only the coaches really know. Spain is clearly passing that guy off but it could have been to Jones. Lewis's body language certainly doesn't indicate a blown assignment.

    Maroita is killing the franchise

    This along with the framing that disagreeing with them automatically makes you a stupid homer also plays a part in it. It shuts down debate before it starts by poisoning the well and putting you on the defensive. It's a great strategy for brow-beating people into agreeing with you but a shitty one if you seek reasoned dialogue. I agree that it's up to Marcus to shut people up and right now he's not doing that. I'm defending Marcus right now not because I think he's great but because some of the reasons for why people are killing him are stupid. However, I said before this season that this was a make or break season for Marcus and even though I agree he's had some bad breaks, ultimately he's either going to have to rise above the current or get washed away by it. Right now he's just holding on to a log. We'll see how it all plays out.

    Ref blocked TT’s route on deep bomb.

    I see what you're saying but I don't quite feel the way you've framed it. My personal feeling is that Marcus is a good enough QB to win with. I think we can win a Superbowl with Mariota at QB. You may be scoffing right now but let me clarify. You don't need an Aaron Rodgers type QB to win the superbowl. If you build a good team around them a guy like Marcus can play well enough on average to win you games. It's what we saw last season with Foles. Mariota isn't going to carry a shitty team. He's just not that good and if your standard is that your QB must be able to carry your shitty team then yeah, Mariota isn't the guy for you but that's not my standard and I think if we continue to build around him we can win. I think he's a good QB, just not a great or outstanding one and a great QB is what this team needs right now but it's a wounded animal that needs someone to carry it. Football is a team sport and right now the team isn't very good.

    Maroita is killing the franchise

    This will get written off as a homer post but there are very good points here. The bolded is a great one. Would I have preferred Mariota throw it away on a lot of those coverage sacks? Yes. Would we have been any closer to winning if he had? Likely no.We wouldn't have set the record for sacks but last time I checked, a throw away doesn't get you down the field and forced throws get picked. So where does killing him for holding the ball and getting sacked actually get us? Our receiving corps has been consistently rated as the worst or close to the worst in the league and we're surprised they're getting blanketed downfield? It's really that implausible that Mariota literally had no where to go with the ball? I'm still withholding judgement until I can see these plays for myself on the All-22 but early reports from people who have access seem to indicate that there might be more to this than the simple "Marcus is a bust" narrative. Someone made a point that it seems like the majority of the board is buckling under the weight of the guys who've been hyper vocal about Marcus being bad and are giving in because they're just tired of fighting it. Whoever you are, I'm starting to agree with you.
