Raiders close to signing Mariota

The offense was bad because Mularkey chose to put Robot Biscuit in charge of it. And then chose to die on that retarded hill when it was painfully obvious to everyone that a change needed to be made. How you continue to prop those two zombies up in reverence I'm sure I'll never understand.

Btw, just in case you weren't aware, Mariota is still in the NFL. Mularkey is not. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Come on. The only gam he looked elite was his first game ever. And that wiz doing his first game of the year magic.

 

He had some good games and some ok games but 90% of the time he was called "good" he just was not fucking it up. That is fine but trying to talk him up for that is stupid.

I get that, but good QBs overcome it, bad QBs end up as back-ups in Vegas

 

Can't disagree, but the guy's career isn't over yet. Plenty of people thought Tannehill's career was over when he got traded in a salary dump.

Gruden liked him a lot coming out too.

 

EDIT: I guess that's kind of obvious everybody liked him coming out pretty much.

Except for those of us with a brain

Aren't you the Russell Wilson guy? Can't keep track of all thee name changes ... 

 

Either way, don't pat yourself on the back because you hated a college player. Bias doesn't count as knowledge.

Callidus, the 2016 Tennessee Titans offense was the best overall offense fielded in Nashville since 2003. Fact. Passing game numbers were actually better than MVP McNair in that year. Running game numbers from both Murray and Henry vs George and Brown. Aside from Chris Johnson's rushing championship of 2009 in regard to one specific category. Now, please don't interpret me trying to anoint Mularkey and Robiskie as offensive geniuses, but fact is under Russ Grimm, the offensive line in regard to continuity between Ben Jones, Lewan and Conklin, along with the pre-departed Kline and Spain all started their upward play trends into today.

The 2019 team, even saddled for six games by Mariota, scored more points (25.1 vs 23.8), was better in the red zone (77% vs 72%), better in yards per play, explosive plays, passer efficiency etc. that the 2016 team.  In the Tannehill games, it was even a bigger gap. 

 

Perhaps jerking off to NFL game pass 2015 week 1 is really what you should be doing instead of coming here with asinine opinions fueled by incorrect information.

Thanks for dealing that shit for me. The 2003 team scored more and was effective but they also didn't have the 5 weeks of tardville we has last year. If tanny played all year I think we would have crushed the numbers from that year.

Why is this still a topic?

 

Mariota is no longer a Titan and he will never again be a Titan. He was nice. He made his bed every morning. He didn’t particularly play well for us the last 2 years. 

 

Good luck to him against every other team but the Titans moving forward. 

 

Moving on...

Yeah... because people instantly "knew".

No, some guessed based on their pre-determined bias. That's being lucky, not right. Tannehill looked like his career was going to finish up as a journeyman/backup at best when he was still in Miami so all anyone could do was guess. You can talk about past years in Miami where Tannehill had "more success than Mariota ever had" all you want... no one was looking at that guy as a starting caliber QB anymore. They sure as shit didn't see him becoming one of the most efficient QBs in the league and leading a team to a conference title game.

Meanwhile, Mariota's option had been picked up so he was going to be the starter in 2019 regardless of who the backup was, which was a huge need. Mariota developed quite a knack for picking up random injuries that seemed to threaten his career. Tannehill was brought in here to upgrade the backup spot as one of the best backup prospects at the time but just as importantly, or maybe even more so, to be insurance in case Mariota got injured again.

Tannehill was not brought in here to compete with and supplant Mariota as the starter. Had Mariota played better, held onto the job, and gotten the team to the playoffs Tannehill would be signed to some other team right now. But he didn't, Tannehill did, and now Tannehill is that dude. Things worked out well regardless.

Some people still can't admit that his failures were inevitably and ultimately on him to correct.

And they always blame other parts of the team instead of putting the failures on him which irks me.

Tannehill's QB rating and performance in a clean pocket has always been quite good, which suggests that he may have actually been a  quality passer and that having awful protection each year had a lot more to do with his issues than anyone realized.  

 

I'm not sure about this year, but Mariota's QB rating in a clean pocket was  awful in 2017 and 18, suggesting that his struggles had more to do with him being a poor passer and/or extremely inconsistent due to no fault but his own. 

 

Mariota's numbers were also consistently mediocre overall, with no rhyme or reason as to why he played well in one particular game but not another.  Win or loss, they sucked and we won often in spite of him.  While Tannehill actually made a much more efficient and productive contributions to the games that his team won, and played really well as long as the defense didn't let things get out of hand.

 

Tannehill just needed a good team. Mariota was rightfully demoted to backup status unless he improves dramatically.
