The Titans don't see an issue with Marcus Mariota's throws to the right

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Is everything right with Marcus Mariota’s throws to the right?

The Titans think so, but his work in 27 NFL games offers evidence to the contrary.

In numbers I looked at when I was still with ESPN, throwing to the right third of the field between 10-20 yard, Mariota has completed 42.7 percent of his passes as compared to 57 percent to the same area to his left.

And from 20-30 yards, it was 27.3 percent to the right versus 40 percent to the left.

(Warren Sharp took a close look at Mariota’s throws in this interesting piece. He’s a handicapper and I don’t know much about him. I cannot double-check or vouch for his numbers.)

The right side does seem to be an area where the Titans’ QB can struggle when he’s off. But Mariota doesn’t see it a specific problem, and talks more generally about his feet and their role in bad throws.
