There's not a lot a QB can do under those circumstances.

    Hell, Tom Brady has one of the best OL's and he's still having a bad season with just weapons problems.
    Tom Brady is in his late 30's, and has all rookies starting for em basically. Hes still not leading the league in picks and his team is winning still. Your not gonna ever see a Tom Brady team lose, because hes to good to let that happen. Its super rare that Brees, Brady, Rodgers, Luck(gonna make it again), P.Manning, don't make the postseason. They are 2 good. Of course, there will come a time even they will start to slow down but not yet.

    If i was doing a Mariota mock, i'd go for it. Were gonna lose Hakeem Nicks, so i'd go for a weapon to replace him , and i'd grab some lineman to protect him, and a real TE..

    1). Marcus Mariota QB Oregon
    2). Paul Richardson WR Colorado(perfect fit as Desean Jackson deep threat for Mariota)
    3). Hroniss Grasu C Oregon(why not pair Mariota with his stud C?)
    4). Deone Bucannon S Washington St
    5). Marion Grice RB Arizona St.
    6). Larry Webster DE Bloomsburg
    7). Denicos Allen OLB Michigan St

    You arent going to see a Tom Brady team tank because they play in the AFC East and Belichick is one of the best coaches of all time. Example, Matt Cassel steps in and gets them 11 wins. If Eli played in that system and Brady in ours, you would see completely different QBs. Its all about the system. Brady is a great QB no doubt, but the systems help tremedously. Gilbride does not have a QB stat friendly offense when it comes to interceptions or if the QB does not have time.It isnt just for when he was coaching us, it has been his philosophy his whole career and his QBs numbers prove it.
