Marcus Mariota not a lock to start for the Tennessee Titans in Week 1
 

 
Marcus Mariota is presumed to the the starting quarterback when the Tennessee Titans begin the regular season Sept. 8. Could that presumption be wrong?

According to a report from ESPN football insider Dianna Russini, Mariota is “not a lock” to start for the Titans in Week 1. According to Russini, the Titans could shock nearly everyone and opt for current backup Ryan Tannehill to start when the Titans face the Cleveland Browns in their regular season opener.


“There’s a tone in Tennessee right now that this coaching staff just wants a quarterback to go out there and be the best quarterback there,” Russini said Monday on ESPN’s “Get Up." “Meaning it is not a lock that this is Marcus Mariota’s job.”


Whew. Russini cited Mariota and Tannehill’s performances Thursday during the Titans’ 27-10 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in their preseason opener.

Mariota, who played only during the opening series, completed 4-of-8 passes for 24 yards. Tannehill, signed by the Titans in March, completed 12-of-16 passes for 130 yards and two touchdowns. Of course, Mariota faced the Eagles’ starting defense while Tannehill produced his numbers against the backups. That reality didn’t deter Russini from continuing on her a*sessment.

“This doesn’t mean they have given up on Marcus Mariota. They want this to work. They know what he can be,” Russini said. “But Ryan Tannehill is stepping in here and he understands this offense. He has the experience, he knows how to win. This could be his job and we’re talking Week 1.”


Titans coach Mike Vrabel has consistently said Mariota is the starter and Tannehill is there to push Mariota. However, Mariota is in the final year of his rookie contract and is coming off back-to-back mediocre seasons in 2017 and 2018. The Titans have not offered him an extension, opting to take a wait-and-see approach in 2019.

Smh... Their reaching... Mariota will have to be hurt for that to happen imo.. Their basing this off the first pre season game lol.. Rt looked good, against 2nd and 3 stringers.. Not down playing it cause he's the best back up the titans have had ina minute..

Mariota will be the starter week 1, but will be on a short leash if the titans start off slow especially if RT continues to look good..

Quick story to get some clicks..

Tried to tell people when Tannehill went to Titans that he would become the eventual starter.

Tannehill is a good not great QB, but to me he is alot better than Mariota and with a decent O line, you could win 10 games with Ryan.

The most underrated quarterback in the league, n*ggas just talk about him like he sorry.

He has a road playoff win, countless dope regular season performances and 4th Q comebacks. He’s ONLY 25 years old, He just gotta stay healthy.










All these highlights were from last year...n*ggas talk like he Brady Quinn or something. Keep sleeping.

Double Post: Mariota has 11 game winning drives in his short career . Despite being a young cat, and missing games due to injury. That’s impressive

As a jets fan with a brother who is a dolphins fan I will just state my opinion when both are at there best personally I think Tannehill is a better qb im no expert and I also think it would be dumb as fu*k for the titans to bench Mariota for Tannehill but I think he throws the ball better and he also can run (not as good as marcus) but has wheels just my opinion slap away

Actually after just looking at the stats which I know numbers dont really matter lol Tannehill has over 20,000 career yards and only in his rookie year has thrown more ints then tds meanwhile Mariota has been trash the last two years jus sayin if he wins the job I think cory Davis can finally produce and be who he is supposed to

Believe that if you want

The only reasons Mariota wouldn't start Is injury or if they are really afraid of Lewan being out effecting the protection.
