Report: Scouts Down on Mariota

You'd think that a guy who has started every game in the past 3 seasons wouldn't have his whole career based on one game. For Marcus Mariota, that may be happening.

You'd think that a guy who has started every game in the past 3 seasons wouldn't have his whole career based on one game. For Marcus Mariota, that may be happening.

Scott Reynolds of Pewter Report said that there was "quite the negative buzz about Ducks quarterback Marcus Mariota" after Monday night's National Championship Game.

Reynolds says that sources told Pewter Report that, "Mariota proved to be a system guy and that when Oregon trailed 35-20 with 9:44 left in the fourth quarter, the Ducks seemed doomed because their offense kept stalling."

“Want to know how to beat Mariota?” said one NFL talent evaluator. “Get him into second-and-10 and third-and-long. If Oregon doesn’t get yards on first down they seemed destined to punt."
