Marcus wasn't mentioned at all under any of the 12 categories. 

 

Defenses in the league are totally agnostic to Mariota apparently!

The poll, to be honest, was very blandly put together.  Overrated, Underrated, who would you want as a teammate, in a big game, who don't you want to face on third down

If a casual fan or another player in the league, particularly in the NFC, is asked to write down the 32 starting quarterbacks, I bet Mariota's name would be close to last.  No one thinks he's great and no one looks at him as poor.  He's just kind of there.  Almost like the franchise itself.

Broadcasters as well, how many times during the broadcast do we have to here how surprised how Marcus is making quality throws from the pocket like its the first time its ever happened. They barely do any real in-depth research on the Titans, hell the totally murdered about 3 Titans players names over and over during the biggest game of the season lol.

Yes.  How many times have we heard it?  It happened with Gruden.  It happened with Green/Arians.  We heard it with Witten/McFarland.  It's annoying.  The guy's been making high quality throws from the pocket since his first game.

Also from Nate Burleson before he got hurt against Washington and as much as they talk about the Titans he would at least not act so surprised.

I had it muted so I wouldn't know.  I often do that now.

And they all think he’s better when he’s outside the pocket making plays with his arm. He’s actually worse at that!
