Let's be honest, this is just the first of many of these awards for Marcus Mariota in his career.  This might be the most exciting week we have had around here since One Clap.  The opener last year was a lot of fun, but I think we were all still holding our breath in regards to Jake Locker.

Again, every week is not going to be like this for Mariota.  He will have some tough games this season.  All rookie quarterbacks do, but we have something that we haven't had in a long time- hope.  Hope that we finally have the guy that is going to be our franchise quarterback.

Tell your friends to get on board.  The bandwagon is going to be full very shortly.
