"I expect a star QB to be better than the competition in MOST practices."

 

Can you show me where Brady is bad in most practices?

 

I'm not walking back anything. If you think I would say a QB NEVER has a bad day then you're reaching. Anything is possible.

 

It is always a bigger deal when a QB has a bad day than when a QB has a good day.

Maybe be off a little. But never horrible.

 

Brees has had 6 interception practices.  Brady bad ones. Rodgers dreadful ones. It happens to the best players.

In MOST practices. I said that pretty clearly in the previous sentence.

 

Is Brees, or Rodgers or Brady ... HORRIBLE IN MOST PRACTICES. Are they inconsistent in most practices? Or are they good to great in most practices with bad days sprinkled in?

 

If Mariota was consistently great in most practices with a bad day here or there it wouldn't be a problem. He isn't.

Mariota's been BAD in red zone situations in practice during the past few weeks or so.  Not just one or two.  But like several in a row, enough for one to form a conclusion.  Add in the bad preseason game and I don't know how you don't come away alarmed or the fact that his job (during the season) is in jeopardy.

"There is a tone in Tennessee that this staff just wants..." WTF does that mean.

They want a damn QB that will pull the trigger and probably lead them a little bit. Take control of the offense not wait for them to micromanage every snap and every play. Namely, a starting QB.

It's common sense. Mariota has been bad for years now, he's bad in practice(LOL comparing franchise QBs having bad practices) and he was bad in PSG1. They are not going to start him if there is a better option. Why would they? 

 

The offense has sucked, the main reason is poor QB play. The coaches and Robinson would have to be idiots to keep starting MM, they aren't idiots. 

 

The joint practices against the Pats will be big imo. If MM continues to be ineffective and RT plays well things could start to swing. Mid Day essentially said the same thing.

As JRob has said...nothing is given;  everything a player gets is earned.  But that goes both ways.

 

If Mariota is up-and-down in practices and preseason and Tannehill shows himself as the more consistent player...then RT has earned the starting job and Marcus had earned the backup role.  The coaches aren’t calling it a competition....but inconsistent and uneven play can only be swept under the rug for so long.  

 

I have nothing but respect for Marcus and I’m pulling hard for him to do well and solidify himself as the starter...but the coaches will ultimately play the QB who gives them the best opportunity to win games.

It is interesting for sure. We'll basically know if a week if this is legit.

 

How reliable is Dianna Russini?

She has a reputation in DC sports for doing whatever it takes to get a scoop. She is also known for throwing everything against the wall and seeing what sticks.

TitansFilmRoom broke down the snaps against the Eagles and had an interesting note on Sims. Jackson started the game but Sims came in after that and then went back out and Jackson came back in and played a long time. 

 

This stuff often means nothing and can't be truly guessed but.....

 

I could see Sims going a few ways. He's good enough to be in the nickel defense for a lot of teams. He's in the last year of his contract. The Titans could either extend him with a reasonable deal that gives them flexibility with Butler and/or Jackson in a year or two or Sims could be traded(he'd have value) with Smith and now Hooker getting snaps inside at slot. Or obviously he could play out his contract and move on.

Just another NFL media member looking to talk up their "insider" status.

 

Find it funny how leading up to the draft multiple national NFL media members all nominate the Titans as the hardest franchise to get information from, and then all of a sudden 3.5 months later STSP is leaking like a sieve with all these "insiders" having all these sources inside the Titans organization.

 

Seriously it doesn't take a genius to work out if Mariota is terrible they will eventually bench him for Tannehill, all these "insiders" are really going out on a limb by suggesting after PSG1 that Mariota has a short leash.

 

 

Some of them like Albright have been demonstrated to just be making up their ‘inside info.’

All those speak out against MM are your enemy regardless of their quality
