Mariota Vs. Mettenberger


Recommended Posts

Curious on people's opinions. Due to his MCL sprain, it's up in the air whether Mariota will play Sunday. If he can't go, Mettenberger would get the nod.

Would people rather face Mariota or Mettenberger? Aside from the first 2 weeks when he had 6 TDs and no picks (and weekly passer ratings of 158 and 96), Mariota has looked pretty average at best in the last 3 games. Meanwhile, the Georgia-born Mettenberger has quite an arm and would be motivated to try and earn his job back against his old hometown team.

Thoughts?

All I know is the Falcons have a rich, established, proven history of playing against rookie/unproven/low-quality QBs, and after the game

those QBs run right out and get their hair cut like either John Unitas or Joe Willie Namath, because that's who the Falcons make them look like during the game. Be afraid. Be VERY afraid.

Well, different teams than history. It would mean more if it were same teams (same personnel, same coaches). Patriots had no history of being a consistent winner before Belichick came to town.

forget that, let's talk about: Mariota vs. Marietta

Mariota: was a duck

Marietta: is the big chicken

Mariota: from Hawaii

Marietta: from Marietta

Mariota: has a Heisman Trophy

Marietta: has a fountain in a Square

Mariota: is one person

Marietta: is 62,000 people

Mariota: is 100% Samoan

Marietta: is 52% White, 32% Black, 20% Latino, 3% Asian (my first Asian!!!), 0.5% Native American, 0.1% Pacific Islander (LOL Wiki does not add up!)

Mariota: likes Corn on the Cobb

Marietta: is located in Cobb

Advantage: Marietta

Final Score: Marietta 62,000 - Mariota 1

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports Marcus Mariota (sprained MCL) is not expected to play Week 7 against the Falcons.




Cole reported Mariota could miss several weeks. ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported Mariota is dealing with a Grade-2 MCL sprain, which is usually a multiple-week injury. Cole said the Titans are comfortable using backup QB Zach Mettenberger, so they do not feel the need to rush Mariota back. Mettenberger completed just under 60 percent of his passes and threw an interception in all seven appearances last season.

You ain't just joshing. Brandon freaking Weeden had his first 16-18 passes completed against us. smdh

Guest Mr Plow

Regardless of who is the opposing Tennessee QB, if our team has progressed the way we think/hope they have, the Falcons should win decisively in this game. This better not be a game where Matt is driving us down the field in the final minutes to get the game winning field goal. This game needs to be over by half time.

Hope Mettenberger comes ready to play then

The only advantage we need is the advantage we give ourselves by proper preparation

So what you're saying is that Mariota is only capable of 100%, whereas Marietta is capable of 108%.

So pretty much we got this in the bag.
