Marcus Mariota led the Tennessee Titans to a whopping zero points on Sunday in their embarrassing16-0 loss to the Denver Broncos.
Miserable. That’s how I would describe this game in one word. Embarrassing could be another word, and you could even say unbelievable.
The Tennessee Titans’ offense flopped once again on Sunday as the Titans lost to the Denver Broncos 16-0. Marcus Mariota was a lot of the problem along with the Titans’ offensive line.
But if there was one person this has to fall on it’s Mariota. 7-of-18 passing, 63 yards, no touchdowns, and two interceptions against the Broncos, or any team is embarrassing.
It’s not like Mike Vrabel pulled Mariota in the first half after a slow start. Mariota survived until the middle of the third quarter before he was benched.
The up and down season that Mariota has been putting on the field has officially hit the lowest of the lows. Some Titans fans have been out on Mariota since last year, and most that already weren’t are now. This tweet is a perfect explanation of the Titans’ season so far.
Mariota is looking more and more like Jake Locker every day. And if you’re interested in what half time adjustments the Titans made, I can sum up what they changed in one word. Nothing. They changed nothing.
Some blamed the coaches for Mariota’s downfall, but if he were as good as some thought, then he would’ve overcome the coaching. I’m not saying the coaching didn’t play a part in all this, but it’s not all on the coaching.
I’m afraid Ryan Tannehill won’t be the answer the Titans need either even though the offense looked a little better with him in the game.
The Titans offense has scored one touchdown in the last ten quarters. One touchdown! And that was a Derrick Henry rushing touchdown. This offense is terrible. Some of it falls on Mariota, and some of it falls on the playcalling, but it’s time to recognize what Mariota really is.
Marcus Mariota is a bum. I said it, and I’m not taking it back. The Titans are going to need a quarterback change to turn the franchise around.
The addition of another offensive lineman or two would help, but it starts at quarterback. I wouldn’t be surprised if Tannehill starts next week, and I would expect Vrabel to do the right thing and hand Tannehill the keys to the offense.
The little Mariota mustache thing isn’t working out for Mikey and Marky, so time to scrap that little character and have a rebrand.
Until then, the Titans will continue to be the Titans and disappoint week by week in new ways. A lot needs to change in Nashville, let’s hope Jon Robinson makes the appropriate changes.
