He's still above average...but the lack of continuity made everyone on offense look bad for much of the year. When the OL play improved and was more consistent at the end of the year, Kalil was back to being Kalil. Not a coincidence.
Uh....yes we would. If a blue chip falls, you pick it up. You're crazy if you think we wouldn't draft Mariotta at 25. Imagine the flexibility it would give us.
Flexibility for what? To watch him sit on the bench? Oh, Cam contract flexibility? So after being called a franchise QB, we draft Mariotta, sit him a year (not knowing if he's actually worth anything as a player), and use it to bait Cam into a cheaper deal? Or have a Cousins/RGIII type situation?
We'd trade the hell out of that pick and if you think otherwise you're crazy IMO.
25 year old, franchise QB. Who desperately needs offensive help. 2 straight years in the playoffs and on the verge of being contenders...you actually think Gettleman drafts a Mariotta there, instead of an actual need/immediate help OR trading back? Get real.
