  1. The negativity regarding Taylor is interesting. I am a GB fan,and people in their forum were proposing a trade for Taylor, basically saying that Mariota was trash and didn't know how to do anything with him. I mean, his production was around 600 yards if you use his per game average (he missed 3 games), Mariota was efficient while targeting him, and he had a very high yards of separation per target and catch %. All in a run-first offense with a QB who could hardly function. You think people would look at this as a sign of promise from a young 3rd rounder. But he sucks because receivers aren't allowed to drop balls, I guess.they must be perfect in all aspects at all times. It's likely just altered perception from fans of a franchise who have seen like 2 WRs develop over the last 30 years
  2. The only area where Mariota really has him is in YPA. But Miami had a bunch of shorter passes to make up for the lack of an O line and running game. He seems pretty consistently accurate in all areas of the field, and as the article suggests , he allows the routes to develop downfield and he'll test coverage and stays focused in spite of pressure. He'd have to be seriously rattled to lose a fair competition to Mariota. He's a more polished passer with a bigger arm, with more experience. He is a perfect West Coast offense QB, as he puts good touch on shorter throws and has the arm and mindset to push the ball downfield. He does tend to slightly under throw passes. If the passing game is still mediocre with Mariota, it's only a matter of time before Tanny comes in. Vra bel is clearly a bit agitated with Mariota's lack of aggression and willingness to throw the ball downfield, while Tannehill has absolutely no problem with giving his WR a chance to make a play on the ball. I think that he has a lot of talent. Clearly not elite, but he's closer to a NFL caliber starter than Mariota is and it's not that close at this point, IMO.
  3. I can't take any video seriously that compares Metcalf to Calvin Johnson. Johnson is several heads and shoulders above him in terms of talent.
  4. Wasn't aware of his age. On the flip side, Simmons is 21. If he's still growing into his body, then, damn.
  5. https://www.google.com/amp/s/brickwallblitz.com/2017/06/17/ryan-tannehill-is-the-nfls-most-underrated-quarterback/amp/ Some great throws in there. Interesting he was the #2 downfield passer in 2016 and #1 in TD %.
  6. I do like him. I just want him to stay healthy and get better. As much as I criticize him, I have the utmost confidence when he has the ball in critical moments in the fourth. It just irks me that he can't bring that urgency on every play. Henry decided to, now he's a completely different guy. Now it is Marcus's turn.
  7. Antonio Brown is undersized. ODB is undersized. A 6'1 250 lbs player with 4.4 speed is not "undersized" . He's a matchup problem that even sorry ass QBs not in the league anymore got more production out of than Mariota has.
  8. All that we have is the pro bowl and his production with unproductive QBs. He was as productive in 15 with Marcus out and had his second most productive season and most YPC the year prior to his arrival. He can clearly play and criticism needs to be directed elsewhere
  9. People seriously exaggerate what it takes to run an adequate passing offense. You got a QB? You have, at worst, an average passing game.
  10. When your QB is Marcus Mariota, you have a fucking problem. I've seen some excuses, but Delanie?? Wasn't he literally the MVP at the pro bowl amongst all of the Super stars, and a consistent top 5 player at his position? 10 sacks vs. Baltimore were a result of him holding the ball more than 3 seconds. I'm not sure what other proof you need to convince you that he's a big part of that problem. I saw many instances of him holding the ball and trying to Russell Wilson his way out of bad situations he created, and he failed miserably. We have a QB with a limited throwing radius and who can't create shit outside the structure of the play. Which is why when the play design sucked in 17, he sucked hard.
  11. Very, very few impressive throws and he has absolutely no touch or pocket feel . You can understand why he has such miserable stats.
  12. I mean, if you are expecting a guy who can beat the likes of Bouye and Ramsey in coverage , catch everything, and have his second playbook nailed down in his second year, then you're going to be disappointed with any rookie WR that you want to bring in as well . The fact that he can do the first is great. But I hope that he changes your mind as well.
  13. I meant you can't let him sit back and throw the ball all game and expect to win. You need a plan for him, to sprinkle in passes that he's comfortable with.
