QB Marcus Mariota.
Marcus Mariota is as explosive as ever. He has complete command of the offense, and there's no limit to the amount of different throws he can make.
With that said, he has some accuracy issues that have become apparent at some point in every game this season. That's called a trend, and it's officially worth noting.
Is it a major concern? No, but the only time Mariota was truly on his game was in the second and third quarters against Tennessee. That, coupled with what we saw last year, shows that he still has all the ability in the world.
Fans will blame the rain and the dropped passes, and that has skewed the completion percentage (now at 56) to an extent. But Mariota has missed a lot of throws over the middle and several easy ones to receivers near the sideline. Often, it's an issue of too much oomph, as the balls are sailing over receiver's heads.
This hasn't been reflected in the scores yet, but it will need to be addressed before the schedule gets tougher, or some of those miscues may end up really hurting the offense.
