Ever have a horrendous idea and go through with it anyway? That’s what this dude did when he got an insane tattoo featuring Marcus Mariota.
Sometimes, you just have to shake your head. Last year, the Tennessee Titans stumbled and bumbled their way to a 9-7 record before somehow beating the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Wild Card. The following weekend, the Titans were stomped by the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium.
During the season, Marcus Mariota was largely terrible. He threw more interceptions than touchdowns in his third season as Tennessee’s starting quarterback, making some wonder what his future ceiling is. Apparently, the dude below isn’t one of them, because he got ink that says not only is Mariota going to win the NFL’s MVP next year, but that he’s the “GOAT.”
I can’t imagine being that confident in anything, let alone something so ridiculous as Mariota being the MVP of the league in 2019. The former No. 2 overall pick has never thrown for 4,000 yards or 30 touchdowns in a season. There’s a strong argument to be made that he’s the third-best quarterback in the AFC South, which might be a hunt that he’s not MVP material.
All that said, give Matt Neely some credit here. It takes all kinds of guts to get that tattoo, especially if Mariota comes out and has a repeat performance of a year ago. Tennessee has fairly high expectations with a new head coach and bolstered defense, so Mariota has no excuse not to improve dramatically on his woeful 2017 campaign.
