  1. Week 3 GDT: Titans @ Jaguars TNF

    This is my biggest complaint with the offense as a whole. Everybody is playing timid and scared to make a mistake. The whole offense just feels completely crippled with fear. There's no aggression, not even a hint of a killer instinct. Like Minshew throwing that beautiful TD in the corner of the end zone. That's a confident QB throwing it up and believing that his WR is going to make a play. A rookie that is playing fearless. Marcus has lost that aspect of his game and I don't know if he'll ever get it back here. Our offensive woes aren't all on Marcus, but his lack of confidence is leaving the whole offense stuck in this lull. I personally think he's missing so many throws because he's overthinking every aspect of his game. He lost that "backyard feel" we talked all offseason about how we wanted Marcus to play free, and so far I've seen the complete opposite of that and a QB that is nowhere close to the guy he was when we drafted him.
  2. Marcus Mariota: Is it Time ??

    This is literally my worst nightmare. This whole thing feels almost surreal to me that we're actually at this point of staring down the barrel of actually moving on from Marcus. I just never truly thought it would get to a point where everything pretty much imploded around him like it has, and he'd be struggling so much. I think there's still a good football player in him somewhere, but I feel like his tenure with the team has just been too tumultuous at this point. It's probably best for both sides to just move on and get a fresh start.
  3. Week 3 GDT: Titans @ Jaguars TNF

    This is way bigger than a Marcus problem. He didn't play well tonight by any means, and I'm not happy about that at all, but the entire offense looks like a complete train wreck not just Marcus. Until we figure out how to fix the OLine it won't matter who is behind center we won't be winning many games.
  4. Week 3 GDT: Titans @ Jaguars TNF

    If we put the game on the back of the big fella I think we pull out the win tonight. Marcus has to make the plays when they present themselves, but if we establish the run early and stick with it we'll win this game and a lot more after that.
  5. Jalen Ramsey Trade Watch

    I'd give the Jags a 2nd and Adoree for Jalen, but nothing more. Definitely not giving them a first rounder. Honestly, I don't think it's even necessary for us to trade for him, because I believe he'll be coming here as a free agent regardless. I'd just love to see him here though whenever it is. He'd bring some more swagger to our team, and he'd just be a fun guy to have here long term. It's probably the worst kept secret in football that he's wanted to be here all along, so whenever we can work it out to bring him home that'll be a cool moment.

    Look at all that personality!!!
  7. Marcus Mariota: Is it Time ??

    Yeah I think if he plays like he did Sunday against the Jags and we end up losing again things are going to get really ugly. It feels like a must win game for him especially because our local media is starting to turn against him for the first time, and they pretty much drive the narrative for a good majority of the fan base. If he plays poorly and we lose to the Jags with a backup rookie QB things are going to get bad. There's no doubt about that.
  8. Marcus Mariota: Is it Time ??

    There's nothing to really prove this theory one way or another, but I've always felt like Marcus hasn't been the same guy since he broke his leg at the end of 2016. He might have recovered physically from that, but I think mentally that changed the trajectory of his entire career. Ever since that injury his confidence as a passer has been pretty much nonexistent. He's been skiddish in the pocket, hesitates on everything he sees, and one of his biggest strengths coming out of Oregon was his ability to make quick decisions and get the ball out quickly. That skill has pretty much completely disappeared from his game. He was the perfect West Coast QB coming out of college. Everything has been off for him mentally since he broke his leg in 2016. and if anything he's completely regressed in the areas that made him a top prospect coming into the draft.
  9. A.M- Life After Marcus Watch (options?)

    The QBs in this draft have some question marks. There's not many really exciting QB prospects available this year to choose from, but I do think there's a couple of guys that could potentially upgrade our offense. Jake Fromm- There's nothing flashy about Jake Fromm, but I love how accurate he is. There's no denying he can throw the football and read defenses. I think he'd fit perfectly with our offense as it's currently constructed. Our offense is similar to the offense he runs at Georgia in that it relies primarily on the run game. He's always been really poised in the pocket, and I feel like he could breathe a nice new life into our offense by giving us a QB that can win consistently in the pocket. Jacob Eason- I haven't watched a ton of Eason yet, but from what I have seen so far he appears to have a rocket for an arm, and I'm intrigued at the idea of what that arm talent could do for our offense. I'll have more thoughts on more guys as the season progresses, but the main thing I want out of our next QB after Marcus is a guy that's a pure passer. Marcus has always been a pocket passer, but he's always relied on his athleticism more so than his arm to get him out of jams. I want our next guy to be able to win us games with his arm. When we get down in a ball game I don't want to feel like we're completely out of it because defenses know our QB can't make accurate throws consistently. The scrambling athletic QBs are fun to watch, and all of our "franchise QBs" have been in that same archetype, but I'm ready for a pure pocket passer in two tone blue.
  10. Marcus Mariota: Is it Time ??

    This is wild to look back on and honestly kind of sad for me. I remember most people being split here, but I really truly believed that Marcus was going to be a really special QB leading up to that draft, and then when it actually became a possibility that we could land him I was more excited for this Franchise than I've been in a long time. Saw a similar guy to the guy I saw in college the first two years here, and ever since he just hasn't been that guy for one reason or another. We've beaten the horse to death on what he is or isn't as a player. I've slowly started to believe less and less that he's going to be the guy here long term especially after this Colts game, but ultimately, it just makes me sad. I have his jersey, have always loved him as a person, and he was electrifying as a player for a few years there. Really thought he was going to be a special QB for us for a long time, but seeing less and less of that "magic" he had at Oregon over the last few years has been really disheartening to watch.
  11. Week 2 GDT: Colts @ Titans

    Yeah gotta find a way to pull it out Thursday. I was hoping to go 3-1 without Lewan. That's still within range no matter how much this loss hurt today.
  12. Week 2 GDT: Colts @ Titans

    The fact that we have to "hide" Marcus at all in year 5 when we drafted him 2nd overall is a pretty big problem in and of itself. Like @-Hope- said it's an unsustainable place to be with your QB long term in today's NFL.
  13. Week 2 GDT: Colts @ Titans

    I'm starting to feel like it's time to move on from Marcus. I'm so disappointed with today's performance especially with it being the home opener and honoring Steve and Eddie. Having the lead in the 4th quarter with every opportunity to close out the game, and Marcus falters. You can point to the missed kick by Santos, but the reality is if Marcus actually makes a play or two we're never in that situation relying on a Santos kick. Defense made some mistakes today, but they played well enough to win. Marcus' mediocre play held us back in this game, and that's all there is to it. His pocket awareness was terrible today, and he was just incredibly inconsistent throwing the football. I hate getting to this point, because I've always believed in him and wanted him to be the answer, but I'm tired of needing everything to go perfectly right to win games, because we can't count on our QB to make a throw when it matters most.
  14. Titans Pick'Em Competition - Week 2

    Hoping we come out fired up to win with it being such a special home game honoring Steve and Eddie. Titans- 35 Colts- 24
