Tennessee should have prioritized the backup position earlier, of course, given how frequently Mariota gets injured.

IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII^^

Very good take and good opinions about the trade.  

I was ready to label JRob as incompent if he didn't get a better backup this season.  MM has been injured too often to just waste the talent of a team this good.  They were better last year, before all the injuries.  They knew what Gabbert could and could not do.  We talk about players, but these guys study them down to their fingers.  They have and have studied game film where these backups Cassell and Gabbert have been in every kind of situation.  They knew going in if either one of them had to play three games, we were probably losing all three.  Blaine was so bad they ran the wildcat when he started.

 

What does it mean?  In 2017, Mariota was starting the season well.  He threw one of his WTF's, then got hurt trying to makeup for it and win the game by himself.  Cassell loses a very winnable Miami game, back comes MM way too soon.  He's hindered with injury the rest of the season.  He ain't that damn good to start with, but hurt all season is stupid just because you don't have a decent backup.  In 2018, funny bone starts telling bad jokes.  They said rest maybe three weeks and he'll be good to go.  Rest one week, back on the field.  

 

I'm not giving him a break because he's injured.  If he's out there, every thing he does counts.  He gets hurt too much, but he takes too many chances and puts himself up for big hits.  It's on the Titans to have the position covered if he gets hurt and to upgrade the position if he doesn't earn his keep.  Finally.

Next years (2020). We get their 6th this year. They get our 7th this year and 4th NEXT year.

 

This was my top choice for backup QB. Nice job going to get him.
