Mike Mularkey talks Mariota's Growth and Beating Green Bay
A conversation with the Titans head coach on the team's dismantling of Green Bay. Plus, Albert Breer's thoughts on Dak Prescott's future as Cowboys starter.
After Sunday's monstrous slate of NFL games, one of which was Tennessee's drubbing of the Packers, I talked to Titans head coach Mike Mularkey about his young quarterback Marcus Mariota. We discussed whether Mariota and Dak Prescott are proof that we overrate the idea of a quarterback being less pro-ready if he comes from the college spread offense vs. quarterbacks from more traditional systems. Mularkey explains what beating the Packers means to the team, and if he was surprised by how it went down. He also talks about what he learned from his first two shots at being a head coach, in Buffalo and in Jacksonville, and whether he thought a third shot would ever come his way.
Before that, Emily Kaplan joined me to talk about how it will be nearly impossible to bench Prescott. And later in show, I answer a six pack of your questions from Twitter.
