Not exactly a carnival of celebrated arms. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d...marcus-russell
    How many coaching interviews did Billick get this offseason in an offseason of tons of coaches needed? I am not going to say Tannehill will be sucessfull of not, I was excited with the pick, but that comparison if laughable to say the least which shows in the amount of interviews.

    I see you Brian Billick...wonder why you don't have a coaching job any more? Mr. I'll draft Kyle Boller...fraud.

    after Russell's first 5 starts:

    77-130, 59%, 892 yds, 5 TDs, 2 INTs, 86.4 rating

    Tannehill:
    97-169, 57%, 1269 yds, 2 TDs, 6 INTs, 70.4 rating


    I'm not saying he will be jamarcus Russell, I think Tannehill has shown more than enough to think he will be pretty good but it just shows the daner of annointing guys too soon.

    Wasn't it that stats don't tell the full story? You have to watch the games? Blah blah blah

    can you actually read what I wrote please? where did I say he'll be jamarcus Russell?

    putting the #s aside he has failed in late game crucial situations in pretty much every game, is that good?

    It's funny that you keep coming out here trying to quell the excitement about Tannehill...are you trying to make yourself feel better about Sanchez? Or are you just jealous?

    trying to help you guys not place unreal expectations on another player. Ryan may turn out to be great but that is TBD, all the stuff you are saying about Ryan you said about henne 3 years ago.

    F-You Billick....he is just a grumpy bitter old man, who was fired as a head coach and is now unable to find an NFL job, so he is just bitter. JaMarcus Russell got fat and lazy once the Raiders paid him millions of dollars. Tannehill is just the opposite. Who cares what this D-Bag has to say.

    At least we know for certain that Tannehill will be a better QB than Sanchez and Tebow. He already is based on his five games that I have seen.
