Marcus Mariota quickly became the Atlanta Falcons' starting quarterback

"Each has a plan. Marcus begins "The Athletic's Josh Kendall quotes quarterbacks coach Charles London after Wednesday's first session. So we'll do it.

London: "I hope they win. Marcus is starting and doing well."

Since the Falcons moved Matt Ryan to the Colts, Mariota is the projected starter after signing a two-year, $18.75 million deal.

The NFC South squad selected Cincinnati's Ridder in the third round of the 2022 NFL draught, which raised questions about his starting role.

Ridder led the Bearcats to become the first Group of Five teams to reach the College Football Playoff by completing 64.9 percent of his throws.

For 3,334 yards, 30 touchdowns, and eight interceptions while rushing for 355 yards and six scores.

Ridder's ceiling is high, and he may have a shot in the future, but he lacks Mariota's experience.

He won the Heisman Trophy and led Oregon to the CFP national title game.

The Tennessee Titans picked him second in the 2015 NFL draught and made him a starter.

Mariota started 61 games for the Titans during the next five seasons, leading them to a playoff triumph in 2017. In 2016 and 2017, he passed for over 3,000 yards.

Since losing his starting job to Ryan Tannehill in 2019, he has been a backup with the Las Vegas Raiders.

Ridder will be ready if the quick start doesn't occur.
