Tennessee Titans Veteran Wide Receiver Says Accuracy of Marcus Mariota Is Not An Issue


Former Oregon Ducks Quarterback Marcus Mariota had quite the season in Eugene in 2014 completing 66.8 percent of his passes and forty-two touchdowns. If you look at his career at Oregon he averaged a passing rate of 66.3 percent and a total of one-hundred five touchdowns. Now, in the NFL with the Tennessee, Titans players are now starting to notice something about Mariota, he is accurate with the football.

NFL.com Writer Chris Wesserling talked with Titans Wide Receiver Harry Douglas who spoke highly of Mariota, specifically about his accuracy when passing the ball. “I feel like Marcus has done everything he needs to do to get the ball to his receivers,” Douglas told ESPN.com’s Paul Kuharsky.

The Titans are doing what they can to prepare Mariota for his first season in the NFL and are studying Offenses of teams they feel could help the former Oregon QB feel more comfortable at the next level including Philadelphia, Miami, and Cincinnati.

It appears on the surface that Tennessee is seeing Mariota as more a player than an ‘experiment’ in 2015. I would hope he will see the field and am looking forward to the Titans Preseason games to see if his passing accuracy holds up in game conditions. It will go a long way in determining if he gets his chance to start for the Tennessee Titans in the Regular season.

Tennessee takes on Atlanta on August 14th at 4pm Pacific Time in their Preseason opener. The regular season begins on the road at Tampa Bay on September 13th at 1:25pm Pacific Time on CBS.
