Derrick Henry was there in the first half. He just wasn't as effective when Tennessee didn't have a lead, because they didn't have a functional passing offense for half the year.Was he significantly better? Or better weapons? Let's remember Derrick Henry didn't turn it on until the second half
We can quibble over this (the difference in NY/A [and ANY/A, my favorite quick-and-dirty passing stat] is pretty stark, largely because Mariota took an enormous amount of sacks while he was in the lineup), but even if you think the difference here is marginal, I don't know why you'd prefer Mariota to Bridgewater.Teddy: 67.9%, 7.1 Y/A, 4.6% TD, 1.0% INT, 99.1 rating, 7.5 AY/A, 6.23 NY/A
Marcus: 59.4%, 7.5 Y/A, 4.4% TD, 1.3% INT, 92.3 rating, 7.8 AY/A, 5.62 NY/A
He completed more passes, but was captain checkdown. I would hardly say he was significantly better. YMMV.
(FWIW, I'm not really interested in either; to me Brady is far and away the best option, Stidham probably second, and the only vet who really intrigues me is Cam Newton, who is capable of elite play that none of the other options really are)
