Marcus Mariota Will Fit At No. 2

By CoryJennerjohn How confident are you in Tim Boyle?

I mean, he's OK. He maintains status quo as the Packers' backup quarterback. He hasn't done anything to lose the job.

Then again, you don't lose the backup job unless you aren't as good as the next guy.

Now it's time to pivot to the starting guy. Aaron Rodgers is 36 and turns 37 in December. If he is out for more than three games, Boyle isn't the guy. I don't see him being able to sustain momentum and keep this team afloat.

Which is why, if the Packers should look to make a move in the offseason, Marcus Mariota makes sense. Mariota's final game as a starting quarterback for the Tennessee Titans was Oct. 13. He was benched because he was completing just 59 percent of his passes, averaged 196 yards a game and threw seven touchdowns and two picks.

Many may ask why it would make any sense to bring Mariota to Green Bay? Remember, he was the No. 2 overall pick in 2015. He needs to prove that getting benched and the Titans getting to the AFC title game with Ryan Tannehill isn't a defining mark on his legacy.

He's trying to prove that he can still be a franchise quarterback. And what better place than Green Bay behind one of the best passers in the game?

The toughest aspect will be money. Obviously Mariota will angle to get top dollar, but his value won't be nearly as high as he thinks. The Titans were supposed to be his team, but he failed and lost. Now it's time for him to build back his reputation.

General manager Brian Gutekunst will likely add a pass catcher, a defensive lineman and a tight end in the draft. He cannot forget about the most important position in sports.

The NFC will be very tough again next year. If Rodgers will be forced to miss any amount of time, the Packers are in deep trouble. Green Bay cannot afford to lose even one game because of injury. And yes, NFL starting players get hurt every year.

However, not all of them play quarterback.

This could be Mariota's last stand. It's time for the Packers to give him a shot.

At the right price, I think this is an excellent idea. LaFleur should know him, and he should know the offense...

I'm not on the Marriota bandwagon, I thought he was overrated coming out.
I'm taking Boyle over Marriota based on what little I've seen of either one.
I just can't see pissing money away on a player who has already made more money than he was worth.
we have no space to even consider this
Packers dud struggle against mobile QBs, and if dirt cheap, he could be a great practice QB for mobile QBs, and give the offense choices or what type of QB they wanted to start.

Also part of Mariota problems as starting QB was injuries and they build the entire offense around running the ball and he basically literally had no weapons... then between the injuries and lack of weapons got his head screwed up trying to do too much... a change of scenery might do wonders.

So at the right price, I'm not against it... but it'd have to be quite cheap...
He's been in LaFleur's system and has playoff experience. If it's something we can afford, it's a no-brainer.
I wouldn’t be against it, but I think his price will be too high.

If they take him that would indicate that Gute feels he's got more short term ability and perhaps even long term potential than Boyle. I am all in favor of improving the depth at any position.

wpr (17h) : "So... no blocking involved?" TJ Lang
Cheesey (19h) : Could one of you post what Lang said? I don’t “tweet”. Thanks!

Zero2Cool (19h) : TJ knocked that out of the park.
beast (20h) : TJ Lang made a great tweet about Jimmy Graham
Nonstopdrivel (20h) : Like I said: mofrackers overpaid.
Zero2Cool (27-Mar) : Randall Cobb hasn't passed physical, hasn't signed contract
Zero2Cool (27-Mar) : @FieldYates The Packers are expected to bring back RB/return man Tyler Ervin on a one-year deal. Ervin, who was acquired off of waivers mid-season in 2019, gave them a real boost in the return game
Cheesey (26-Mar) : You mean the “Peckers”?🤪
Zero2Cool (26-Mar) : It's a new team. They gonna finish better than Packers :(
Cheesey (26-Mar) : “Cobwoys”???😂
Zero2Cool (25-Mar) : I am not excited about the moves the Cobwoys have made.

Zero2Cool (24-Mar) : Postpones Tokyo Olympics to 2021
Zero2Cool (23-Mar) : Tom Brady had interest in Colts but Colts didn't have interest in Tom Brady, via @peter_king
beast (22-Mar) : Also my friend (MEGA Eagles fan) said the NFC East division's CB largely sucked last year and the WRs in the division numbers exploded because of it
Mucky Tundra (22-Mar) : Fast turf to play on and not nearly as many cold weather games to slow him
Mucky Tundra (22-Mar) : Cobbs better off playing with a dome team down south at this point in his career
Zero2Cool (22-Mar) : Cardinals bringing back safety Chris Banjo
Cheesey (22-Mar) : I was kind of hoping Cobb would come back here. But way too much money at this point in his career.
Nonstopdrivel (22-Mar) : Houston way overpaid for Cobb. Three years, $27 million. Sheesh.
Cheesey (20-Mar) : Monica Lewinski just bought a Cowboys jersey. After all, she LOVES “Clinton-Dix”!!!😂
gbguy20 (20-Mar) : dix now with 4 teams in 2 years. 3 of which let him go. 2 one year contracts in a row. good player
Zero2Cool (20-Mar) : @Buccaneers · 12m Tom Brady is officially a Tampa Bay Buccaneer!
Zero2Cool (20-Mar) : @Schultz_Report Todd Gurley is signing with the #Falcons, per source.
Zero2Cool (20-Mar) : BREAKING: The Cowboys have signed safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix!
Nonstopdrivel (20-Mar) : The Bears will probably give lip service to Trubisky as the starter going forward, but you know full well they're yanking him and replacing him with Foles the moment he turns the ball over.
Mucky Tundra (20-Mar) : HaHa to the Pokes
Mucky Tundra (20-Mar) : packfanoutwest, who doesn't want to play for GB? I've seen both Eric Ebron and Robby Anderson make favorable comments towards GB Anderson
Mucky Tundra (20-Mar) : They clearly overvalued their own guys. Of the top 10 contracts on the Rams right now, 9 of them were drafted by the Rams and that's not including Gurleys salary
Mucky Tundra (20-Mar) : But outside of a few guys like Suh and Fowler, the Rams splashed those big contracts on the guys they drafted.
packerfanoutwest (20-Mar) : players
packerfanoutwest (20-Mar) : seems like a lot of platers don't want to play in Green Bay
packerfanoutwest (20-Mar) : seems like a lot of platers don't want to play in Green Bay
gbguy20 (20-Mar) : they never looked builtbfor the longterm in my opinion
gbguy20 (20-Mar) : hmm. when the rams signed all those big contracts over the last few years, it looked pretty clear to me they wete going all in with a very short window and that would be that.
Nonstopdrivel (19-Mar) : The was supposed to be "wpr," not "work."
Nonstopdrivel (19-Mar) : I'm a hiker, camper, and kayaker, work, not a swimmer. I hate cold water with a passion.
Mucky Tundra (19-Mar) : Seems hard to believe the mess the Rams are now. Two to three years ago they looked like a franchise that would dominate for the next decade and now nothing but questions
Mucky Tundra (19-Mar) : Brady signs with the Bucs and Payton tests positive for the coronavirus two days later. Coincidence? I think not!
Cheesey (19-Mar) : Matthews I can understand, but Gurley? Wow
Zero2Cool (19-Mar) : Saints’ HC Sean Payton tested positive for the coronavirus
Zero2Cool (19-Mar) : Rams doing some cutting!
Zero2Cool (19-Mar) : @RamsNFL · 9m We have released Clay Matthews.
Zero2Cool (19-Mar) : HOLY SHIT. Todd Gurley RELEASED
Mucky Tundra (19-Mar) : I would say that Branson, Missouri is a bigger tourist trap than Myrtle Beach
wpr (19-Mar) : And WATER!
Nonstopdrivel (19-Mar) : Plus there's no topography there. No hills, no mountains, nothing interesting. Just sand and trees.
Nonstopdrivel (19-Mar) : I just hate tourist traps, and Myrtle Beach is the ultimate tourist trap.
