Marcus Mariota has been nominated for FedEx Air Player of the Week. Be a true fan and click on this link and go vote for him. He is up against Ben Roethlisberger, who couldn't even finish his game, and Drew Brees who Mariota beat. Neither of those guys are worthy to be listed on the same page as Mariota!
When you step back and look at it, Mariota was really impressive in the win. It was his first game after missing 2 weeks with an injury. Not to mention the fact that it was his first game with Jason Michaels calling the plays. Add on top of those two factors that it was in the Super Dome, which is a really tough place to play...especially for a rookie.
Mariota deserves your vote. Remember, you cannot complain if Marcus doesn't win the award if you don't vote. You will not be eligible for the "Don't blame me, I voted for Mariota" bumper stickers that I will be having made if he doesn't win. #rockthevote
