i think it's very possible that AAS has said (maybe not directly but indirectly) my 20 million dollars is gonna be on the field.

It’s also better for marketing and stuff to have MM, face of the team for years, still be marketed. I’ve wondering if it could be partially a business decision. 
 

It’s not like RT is miles ahead of MM anyway. Maybe it’s smarter from a business standpoint to see if MM can get it done and make the switch if you have to during the season.

They are clearly counting on Henry to play like the last month and the defense to dominate

and if better for marketing than that is probably a significant dollar amount also.  Off-setting what your paying MM.

I don't like to pretend to know if RT is better...I don't care that he looked good against #2s in a pre-season game.  He's an 8 yr vet..he should look good against guys trying to make a team.  He's got plenty of actual game film on him and I haven't really watched any of it.  Situation and his overall record tell me he's not better or worse...just about the same.

 

the worst think IMO that could happen is they go with Tannehill and he is just what you thought he would be...so so.

that would just be bad for everyone and then it would be really bad to switch back to MM and he look good.

 

If they don't like MM and the plan is to get  new QB next year then just try to piece it together and QB by committee it...but I think they are sure as hell starting with MM.

AAS isn’t like her dad;  she’s not the type to dictate that a lesser player be put on the field just because he’s paid more.

 

  JRob and Vrabel were hired to make football decisions.  I’m sure AAS is involved in many of those conversations...but ultimately, but she  trusts and expects them to do their jobs and to do whatever they feel gives the team the best chance of winning.

I'd guess Vrabel's plan is more to run the offense through the running game and the passing game will come from playaction, RPOs and a dumbed down running QB offense. He wanted Day badly, who would have obviously ran that type of scheme. 

 

They'll want to keep MM out of drop back passing situations. 

 

It will be hard to do with this schedule

Anyone hear Cosell today? Yikes.

 

He broke down how bad MM was in the Eagles game, basically said he still didn’t have the basic nuances of the position. The Jennings throw was a basic pitch and catch, he took too deep a drop, was late, saw pressure that wasn’t there etc.....

 

He said it’s stuff he’s done wrong from the start and he said it had nothing to do with changing OCs etc.....

 

If you watched the game thought MM looked fine you don’t know WTF you are watching or talking about.

Why do we even have a QB coach? To fetch him water?

My entire post is contingent on the decision-makers knowing that Mariota sucks. I don't actually think that but a couple of posters sure seem to. I get that a QBOTF was probably out of our reach this year but we could've gotten in on the Foles sweepstakes,  tried to move up for Haskins, drafted Lock as was rumored,  or even try to amass trade capital for the next draft. The fact that we didn't do any of this suggests to me the FO is not as desperate as is being implied.

We just never really know the entire story being fans.  It's entirely possible they hated Haskins and were planning to trade out of #19 to get some draft capital for next year and then just couldn't pass up Simmons when he was available.
