What's your Mariota threshold?

Recommended Posts

They've been talking about it on 3HL and asking people what they want/need to see from Mariota before they'd feel comfortable with the Titans giving him a multi-year, big money deal. Obviously staying injury free will likely be at the top of almost everyone's list, but if you're someone who hasn't totally given up on the idea of him being the future for the team, what would you need to see from? How many yards, touchdowns, team win, interceptions, etc. etc.?

It's hard to say but what I will say is you'll know it when you see it and anyone who understands the situation knows it's not about a certain number of yards or TDs.

 

And yes, playing all 16 and any playoff games we make is a big part of it.

 

Everyone believes the talent level is much better than it was two years ago.

 

So in theory the only thing holding this team back from being an 11+ win team and a rather easy playoff birth is Mariota and or coaching.

I wouldn't give him an extension almost regardless of what he does. I'd give him the franchise tag if he had a good year and make him do it longer. 

 

 

Cant argue with this but then he'll pull a Cousins and use the tag as his annual salary baseline.

Agreed.

 

As for the OP, I would expect at least a 2:1 ratio of TD/INT, TD% of at least 5.0%, YPA > 7.1, QB rating in the mid 90’s.  Obviously he needs to be able to finish the season health wise.

 

Team wise, they need to be a playoff contender and I would caveat the stats with them being meaningful - not padded stats in blowouts.

If he does that then all the better

 

Let's be real, a better question is how long until Tannehill is starting

I don't think he even needs to start 16 games.

 

He needs to put up top 10 numbers: 25+ TDs, 12 INTs or less and 3,400 plus passing yards.

 

But I agree with @OILERMAN you might as well bite the bullet and franchise him regardless.

 

It's all about production not games started for me. If he was still putting up numbers and missing 2 games a year I'd be fine with it.

I don't see an extension as even a remote possibility.   If he plays well enough to warrant an extension, tag him and make him prove he can do it two years in a row.

 

Acceptable production:     3500+ yards, 24+ TDs,  single-digit INTs, 95+ passer rating,  <5% sacks.     And I wouldn't mind seeing  -5 yards rushing for the season.

He has to play 16 games, win in the playoffs, and finish Top 5 in the MVP race for me. I don’t give a damn about the award, but that will mean he had dominant stats. Even then, I would tag him and make him do it again while seriously considering a Round 1 QB.
