    Where have you been? Mariota did that plenty last year. Expecting that every game is beyond ridiculous. Mariota did enough to win, bailed us out on 10 3rd downs, didn't turn the ball over and moved the football to put us in scoring situations. Playcalling **** the bed in the redzone too.

    Murray averaged 3.7 yards per carry. THATS GARBAGE. thats some trent richardson crap, only reason we had an average over 4 was because mariota averaged 10YPC.

    Coaching and system has a lot to do with it.

    But I do too have my concerns. If you are star you should be able to shine inspite of coaching and system flaws.

    He's still my guy and I believe in him. But there were a lot of miscues today that weren't only his fault. But they weren't the receivers either.

    Carr has an elite group of receivers- we're still a work in progress. In context, our porous defense held Carr to 26. We didn't lose this on one bad play, we lost it in all phases. As Bill Cower said post-game, if you are going to build around your run game your defense has to stand tall. In this case our defense, special teams and run game were all just okay- definitely not good enough to win against Oakland. They don't have the same level of elite receivers for Mariota to put a game like this on his shoulders. In a way I'm glad they lost this one this way- everyone should come to practice knowing they have to do better.

    Mariota is very average.

    But the main issue is- he doesn't seem to have any passion at all for football. Looks like he couldn't care less if we get first downs, TDs, or go 3 and out.

    Barely seems to put any effort forth.

    Mariota had a QB rating of 78.9. THAT'S GARBAGE. That's some Jake Locker crap.

    I wouldn't say Carrs receivers are Elite cooper is very good and crabtreee is pretty good as well but that's it I think our receivers are pretty good too . Walker is a better tightend and Matthews and decker are pretty solid also We have a better run game and a better offensive line. I think our defenses are about the same .

    Probably not the best idea to judge a player's passion based on perceived body language.
