A week or so ago I posted an article about the importance of the Tennessee Titans’ Marc Mariani improving his route running skills in order to stay on the roster. Well today bares some good news. In a Rapid Report from CBS, Coach Munchak said that Mariani excelled with the deep passes and his routes were looking sharper.
WR Marc Mariani flourished on deep routes throughout the Titans‘ offseason program. Mariani may be competing with WR Michael Preston for the final receiver spot on the roster. “He’s one of those guys when the ball went up, it seems like he came down with it,” coach Mike Munchak said. “He found a way to get open; his routes were sharper.”
Now obviously, you have to take this with a grain of salt. It’s all without pads and coaches are basically always sending out the good vibes around this time of the year. None the less, it makes me happy to hear things like this. It gives me hope. Though there is a contagious amount of optimism before the start of every season for every team out there.
Injuries and people not playing up to the hype always helps bring you back down to earth.
