I know it’s SUPER early but I’m already loving everything about Marcus Mariota next season. Reason being? I love the addition of their new offensive coordinator, Matt LaFleur, who helped out tremendously with the Los Angeles Rams offense this past season. In the 2016-17 season the Rams total offense ranked dead last in the NFL. In just one year’s time, LaFleur turned them into a top ten offense, finishing tenth just behind Tampa Bay.
I’m also loving what he has to say. “It’s extremely difficult to dink and dunk all the way down the field. Defenses are just too good,” LaFleur said. “Statistically, the teams are getting the chunk plays — the explosives — are the teams that are going produce more yards and more points.”
Remember at the end of the 2016 season when Mariota played extremely well when the Titans opened up their attack? I can’t wait to see what he does this upcoming season.
