The me sage was loud and clear. It wasechoed all over Nashville: Me s up Marcus Mariota, and you will pay dearly.On Tuesday, Ken Whisenhunt paid. On Sunday, everybody got their reminder of why.MORE: NFL Sunday scoreboard, stats | Drew Brees' big game gets spoiledMariota is capable of going into the Superdome and outgunning Drew Brees. Eli Manning, with his two Super Bowl rings, couldnt outgun the Saints QBin the same building last week.But this week, the rookie cracked the code and made the Titans owner look like a genius.It was a fair question to ask, though, back when Amy Adams Strunk kneecappedWhisenhunt after just 23 [url=https://www.tbbuccaneersgear.com/Chris_Conte_Jersey.NFL][b]Chris Conte Jersey[/b][/url] games and after coaching the second overall pick in the April draft for just five games. How do you pull the plugso fast? Answer: when theres no time to lose, and Whisenhunt was wasting it, apparently.Maybe it was Whisenhunts absence.Maybe it was the brilliance of interim Mike Mularkey...or maybe it was just the usual surge of adrenaline from a coaching change. That wears off, as the Dolphins have found out. But there was no maybe [url=https://www.tbbuccaneersgear.com/Mike_Alstott_Jersey.NFL][b]Mike Alstott Jersey[/b][/url] about what Mariota can do, not after he led the Titans to that 34-28 walk-offovertime win over the Saints that ended their six-game losing streak.Mariota had mi sed the last two games with a bad knee, and that was no small factor in the end of the Whisenhunt regime the widespread notion that he put the prime a set in danger, and thus the future of the franchise, with how he handled his health. The stampede he faced against the Dolphins, the hit he took, the fact that he went back into that game that inflamed a good portion of the Titans fan base and, it seems, some of the decision-makers.Nope.Weve seen this movie before, starring Robert Griffin III and Mike Shanahan, three years ago. The ending stunk. Mariota isnt going to be our scout-team safety someday because the head coach is too reckle s,or unimaginative, or smart,to do right by the future franchise foundation.Mariota had barely taken a mi step all season, not on opening day, not since. But it dawned on a lot of people that what seemed like the usual rookie growing pains following his spectacular debut was too unusual, and disturbing.So [url=https://www.tbbuccaneersgear.com/Nick_Folk_Jersey.NFL][b]Nick Folk Jersey[/b][/url] what happened during the transition? Stories about big changes in attitude and approach are easy to blow out of proportion at times like this, but Mariotas play didnt lie. That wasn't emotion that kept him going toe-to-toe with Brees.The four touchdown pa ses, the game-tying two-point conversion, the drives with so much riding on them including the one at the end of regulation that led to a game-winning field-goal try that caromed off the cro sbar those should have looked familiar to anyone who had watched him in training camp, the preseason, the opener and even the bumpy road afterward.Mariotas the real thing. Hes a precious resource [url=https://www.tbbuccaneersgear.com/Robert_Mcclain_Jersey.NFL][b]Robert McClain Jersey[/b][/url] that has to be nurtured, a gem that has to be polished carefully. He was being hidden under a pile of offensive ineptitude and, the last few weeks, a beaten-up body.Oh no, the Titans said.Enough of this. Not this early, not ever. Make the move.Take the heat.Live with the consequences.They can live with them today they got a huge winon Mariotas shoulders. And the rest of his body came out unscathed.Everybody now gets what the Titans were mi sing and it wasnt Whisenhunt.
