EAGLES FACING MARIOTA, WHO COULD HAVE BEEN A BIRD, ON SUNDAY!

By Julie Glass

There was a time when Eagles fans thought that Marcus Mariota would be their quarterback of the future.

It didn’t turn out that way because he was drafted by the Titans in 2015.

Well, now Birdlanders get their wish:

Titans coach Mike Vrabel announced that Mariota will start for Tennessee on Sunday against the Eagles. Last week Mariota was suffering with an elbow injury and didn’t start, although he did enter the game after starter Blaine Gabbert suffered a concussion. This week, Gabbert may be out and the newly signed Austin Davis may be No. 2 behind Mariota.

“Blaine’s still in the protocol, we’re getting Austin ready to back up and Marcus will be the starter. We’re getting excited about that because he’s getting better,” Vrabel said.

Neither Mariota nor Gabbert has played well this season: Gabbert has a passer rating of 68.9, while Mariota has a passer rating of 53.9. The Titans will need better than that from the quarterback position if they’re going to beat the Eagles.
