What's your Mariota threshold?

Recommended Posts

Quote

T-20. Tennessee Titans

Starter: Marcus Mariota | Signed through: 2019
Tier: Prove-it time | Ranking in tier:T-No. 3

Contract: Fully guaranteed $20.922 million 2019 salary on the fifth-year option, exercised in April 2018, from his 2015 rookie deal.

 

Remember when Winston and Mariota got drafted and people said stuff like, "They'll always be connected." Wow, did that turn out to be true. They're next to each other literally every time we do a list like this.

 

Mariota hasn't shown an ability to stay consistently healthy, and Ryan Tannehill is a better backup option than the Titans had last season. You wonder about Mariota's leash with a coaching staff that didn't draft him.

It's hard to imagine a scenario in which he's extended.

 

If he doesn't look like a top 10 QB, or gets hurt, he'll walk. If he stays healthy and puts up fantastic numbers, he will price himself price himself into one of the most expensive QB contracts. The problem is it will only be based off 1 year of production, and we'll still be worried about injury risk -- so you franchise him.

 

I don't see a scenario where Mariota looks mediocre and both Webster and Mariota's agent accept a mid-range long term deal.

That's a chicken and the egg argument.

 

They'll cut him loose when he successfully cuts it loose.

 

Nobody is holding him back.

Did I say they were going to hold him back?  It's a run-first offense.  That's not going to change.  Enough with your agenda already.  We get it.

I like Oilerman's idea.

 

If Mariota balls out next year plays great and looks like a genuine franchise guy then the next move is Tag him. The franchise tag protects us so that if Mariota comes back to earth we can cut him loose.

 

Robinson would be making a huge mistake if he signed Mariota to a big long term deal based only on 2019.

 

Tag gives us an extra year to judge his play and see if he can replicate his success.

Tomlinson says Mariota is under the most pressure in 2019.  Vereen picked Wentz

What's funny about this topic is the uncertainty about whether Marcus will be available to start game one.

Lol at him playing 16 games, everyone gets injured... Just have him play majority of games and not having some nagging excuse all season

 

3:1 ratio is a must IMO

Kinda funny:  while they’re talking about Mariota’s inconsistency and whatnot, they showed a number of bad plays that presumably highlighted his shortcomings. Of the several  “bad” plays they showed, only one showed poor QB play.

 

But I agree with LT’s talking points.

I would just like him to stay on the field and play efficient ball. He doesn't need eye popping numbers, just efficient ones. Not many INTs, sacks, fumbles. Converting a decent number of 3rd downs. If the defense doesn't backstep, and we actually bring a respectable run game, then this kind of QB play would be enough to make a good run at things.

The problem with that line of thinking is he has never shown "this kind of QB play"... The reason people have hopes for him is because the peaks he has shown but the reason we actually have this conversation is because the valleys.

 

Health matters but only a retard thinks that's his only issue

Spot on. His pattern is basically 1-2 good games, 1-2 below average games, and 1-2 awful games all mixed in.    What you want to see is 4-5 good games in a row.

OP asked what my threshold is and I gave it. I want to see him healthy and playing efficient ball. I don't care about having an elite QB. I just want a winning team. If he is doing his part and we are winning then I am satisfied. If he is turning the ball over as much as he scores, taking dumb sacks, or not staying on the field then scratch him.
