Colin Cowherd: “Tennessee will now move off Marcus Mariota, like corporate America, keep up or get benched. Stop trying to talk yourself into crappy quarterbacks, there’s only 16 I’m buying into and you can have the rest. I’m buying into Tom Brady, Patrick Mahomes, Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, Russell Wilson, Carson Wentz, Matt Ryan, Drew Brees, Deshaun Watson, Philip Rivers, Jared Goff, Jimmy Garoppolo, Derek Carr, Dak Prescott, Lamar Jackson, and Aaron Rodgers. I’M IN. I need 3-4 weeks with Kyler Murray. Big Ben? Old and hurt, OUT. Baker? Too cocky, PASS. Trubisky? PASS. Cam? I’m over him. Stafford and Dalton? PASS, no playoff wins. Half the league I’m in and half the league I’m out.” (Full Audio at Bottom of Page)
Listen to Colin Cowherd explain which sixteen NFL quarterbacks he still believes in after a sloppy Thursday Night Football may have put the career of Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota at a crossroads with the franchise who drafted him.
The fifth-year player was sacked nine times and threw zero touchdowns in route to a 28.1 QBR game that saw the majority of his empty 304 passing yards come in garbage time with Tennessee running a completely aloof and time-wasting two-minute drill down two touchdowns.
Mariota has just 73 touchdowns in career 59 games, and had a full season in 2017 where he threw more interceptions (15) than touchdowns (13).
Check out the audio below as Colin lists the only sixteen NFL quarterbacks that he believes in to this point, as he’s writing off Mariota in Tennessee.
