Marcus Mariota on the Cover of Sports Illustrated

For the first time since 2010, and only the second time since 2008, a member of the Titans is on the cover of Sports Illustrated.

Well fellow Titans' fans, we have entered uncharted waters.  Twitter blew up a few minutes ago with the image of Marcus Mariota on the cover of Sports Illustrated.  Here is is courtesy of Jim Wyatt:

The last time someone from the Titans was on the cover of SI was 2010:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr"><a href="https://twitter.com/TitansMCM">@titansmcm</a> Actually looks like 2010 CJ..but not a positive note. <a href="http://t.co/wBLmBoyc8h">pic.twitter.com/wBLmBoyc8h</a></p>&mdash; Andrew (@ndrewJS) <a href="https://twitter.com/ndrewJS/status/595618341240360961">May 5, 2015</a></blockquote>

Titans' fans are always complaining about not getting attention from the national media.  That is not going to be a problem in 2015, or for a very long time if Mariota turns out to be the stud that many people think he will be.

This is going to be an interesting ride.

You can celebrate Mariota on the cover of SI with the Mariota Lei T-Shirt!
