Mariota is a good option. The Colts have been forcing FGs, but also are bad against the run, and Mariota is a running QB.
Smith or Carr is tough, but since KC is at home, I'd go with Smith. As a rule, west coast teams struggle more when they head east.
"Open eyes" needs to lead to more questions about what has changed since 2014 than simply a lack of talent on D.
2014 was a flawed D without playmakers that still made some timely stops, manufactured a pass rush of 41 sacks, and held its own against teams not named NE and Pitt.
We can allow a new staff some time to figure things out....but there is no less talent on this D than there was in 2014. As of now, we have a glaring coaching issue to accompany obvious roster shortages.
