I love how MM played today. He’s getting more comfortable in the pocket. However, there’s something about his release. Not after the injury, just in general. Something about the way he holds/grips the ball. Something about the trajectory when it leaves his hand. It oftens floats up, although he can definitely throw strikes. 

 

Still. Love what he did today. 

Today I actually saw what some posters have called a "shot-put" throwing delivery..the difference on some throws is that he has completely rotated his torso, then the throw lags behind just a split second..however most of his throws are NOT made this way.. it seems that is his mechanism for a lobbed or touch pass he wants to drop into the receiver, not the throws he drives and has a clear lane for..IMO

Yes they benched brady cause the game was over. But he had to suck today to be so out of it to be benched. Mariota is not brady. 99% chance he never will be close. But today. He was better from start to finish.

Their whole offense sucked today though. And their oline became a sieve.

 

Brady was benched as a preservation effort. If this were a play off game or a game deciding whether or not they were going to the playoffs you can bet he'd have finished the game.

No reason for Brady to stay in the game. I was confused as to why Michel still played, considering his recent injury.

I think “benched” is too strong a word.  

 

The Pats’ offense had been struggling to move the ball all day and Brady was taking a beating in the process.   When Henry scored to make it 34-10, Belichick knew it was time to wave the white flag...keeping Brady out there to get beat up some more would have just been straight-up dumb coaching.  And BB definitely ain’t dumb.

One way Mariota beat the Pats defense was breaking out to run and then throwing the ball vs a broken coverage. Watching it again there were at least 3 plays he took off as if there wasn't a doubt he was running but he pulled up and threw it, including the TD to Smith. 

 

This is def something he's done much better the last few weeks. He was previously looking at the rush and just running, often into defenders with a lack of awareness.

Marcus was better scrambling than he has been this last game but its not something he neds to do to win and not something coaches have to do with him to allow him to play QB. 

 

Its an advantage he CAN bring but not necessary.

That's a good way to keep him healthy too, by not taking unnecessary hits. When he did run yesterday, he was very decisive and took off quickly. Some plays may have even been designed QB runs. His pocket awareness yesterday was outstanding.
