Atlanta Falcons: Three most disappointing players this year
Marcus Mariota – QB
Shocking, right? The Atlanta Falcons have had very inconsistent play from their new quarterback Marcus Mariota this year. He has had his good moments but he has also had some awful moments.
This feels like the wrong time to mention his name since he is coming off of a solid performance against the Bears, but as a whole, most of us have been disappointed with how the veteran quarterback has played.
To be fair, were we fair to expect a breakout season from a quarterback who was drafted in 2015? Probably not, but there is always that intrigue when signing a former top-five draft pick and former Heisman Trophy winner.
We have seen great moments but that alone will not secure you a job in the NFL. He hasn’t shown the consistency that is needed from the most important position in football.
