Bernard Pollard weighs in on the QB situation

To me, actual games played and the experience one gains in seeing different looks and adjusting to what teams do to stop what is initially successful is the key to real QB growth more than age.  Especially in an era where guys leave school early and play right away instead of 4 years of college and sitting for a year or two like a Rodgers or McNair. 

 

Once they hit the field, you want to see progression in their play, not regression or plateauing. 

 

Peyton Manning in year 3 was a lot better QB than he was in his rookie season and one could go on and on with other examples. 

 

 

 

 

Peyton Manning was a damn good QB when he came into the league but on a shitty team.  He also played an extra year in college.  Was he better in year 3...of course he was but not like he came into the league on the same level as Mariota.

The issue is progression.  Manning's floor is higher than Mariota's ceiling.  Pick another one - say Favre.  Brady.  Rodgers.  Roethlisberger.

 

The point is that progression seemed to stop after year 2 for MM

Can anyone recall Number9 aka board idiot #2 ever adding any value to a football conversation?

 

You are avoiding now.  You have this attitude that you can insult me without a reply.  You can shove that.  I just pointed out how you were wrong, so you attack me.  Answer some of those questions.

 

Why don't you ask if I even insulted anybody?  

 

It's a message board jackass.  I come here to read posts about the Titans to learn more about the team.  Why don't you ask have I ever run around the board acting like I was superior to anyone.  No, I don't get in conversations about the D formations because I know I don't know enough about it to be trying to lead a conversation.  When the conversation has phrases I do now understand, I go research them to improve my football knowledge.

 

I have told you the back the hell up.  You are obviously too stupid to understand what that means.  So, I will ride your ass a while.

PSG3

Aw Shucks, t'wont nothing.  But the whole reason PSG3® was eyeopening was because of all the bad reports coming out of camp mentioning errant throws.  A bad preseason game is nothing, insignificant if it an aberration.  But if it completes a pattern, it completes a picture.  Vrabel benched him.  A preseason game and out of mercy the coach sat him down.  I was labeled a loon probably by Oldstool, but game one he was missing one yard passes throwing the ball on the wrong side and even uncatchable.  Little passes, but one was an easy score(TD) if thrown correctly.

 

You can't win big if your QB can't perform at will.  Just suppose the Titans were in the SB and MM decides to use that strong arm and throw an uncatchable ball for a TD that could win us the SB.  You just don't know when he's going to produce.  In the KC game, he opened up with an interception in the first half.  The team brought us back, DHen and Cyp knocking out Kelce is what beat the Chiefs.  You can't count on your strong armed QB aiming the ball perfectly into a defender so it will bounce back to him.  Great play, just can't count on that.

Delusional. I've destroyed you as have most for years on this board. You are on par with simple jake and that's not a good thing. Don't pick a fight with your superiors; it won't end well for you.

I think this is a valid argument. The question is whether you think there are extenuating circumstances like a revolving door at OC and injuries that curtailed development. Regardless of your stance on the last question everyone should agree time is running out on Mariota.

Don’t act like you’re superior to anyone? What the fuck were you doing when running around flaunting PSG3? 

 

Ill admit oldschool might might be a little hard on you sometimes, but other times it’s well-deserved.

It's just a rare skill set.   A great NFL QB has to have the ability to do what a great NBA player does- make everyone around him better.  And not many guys have what it takes to do that. Mariota certainly has never shown it. And just like the NBA, if you don't have a star like this as your lead guy, it makes things much more difficult and you may as well tank and try to get one.

Says the guy who begs for help.  ANYBODY!!  HELP ME!!  You are a crude joke.

 

I don't belittle anyone.  I have never even called Jake that name you just slung at him.  Just out of the blue, Jake isn't even is this.  But there you go.  Word of advise.  STHU and leave me alone.
