    I think most on here were enamored by Henne's arm not necessarily his decision making or his leadership. Tannehill is doing things Henne never did, and doing them well. It's not just the mobility, the accuracy at which he throws or the fact that he stands tall in the pocket and delivers passes when he knows he's going to get hit, throws with anticipation...things Henne never displayed on a consistent basis or didn't display at all...but the kid is audibling (if that's a word), calling out protections, spending a lot of time in the film room studying defenses (he hasn't really been surprised by anything teams have thrown at him so far) and displaying leadership and a personality that Henne never did. Tannehill's not a finished product but he's already better than Chad Henne because of all the little things he does that Henne didn't do.

    The two are nothing alike at all.

    ETA; Tannehill has more than a 1/4 of the yards Russell compiled in three years.

    putting the #s aside he has failed in late game crucial situations in pretty much every game, is that good?
    You're the master of having it both ways. You say you aren't admitting Tannehill will be Russel but you compare them anyway. Why make the comparison in the first place?

    What cracks me up is even his basis of comparison isnt true. Russell was a first round pick before the combine ever happened. He was coming off a very good year in college and a national championship. His talent was obvious. Its not like he came out of nowhere after the combine.

    so his 2 TDs w/ 6 INts and failures in late game situations have proven it to you? good to know.

    I am not talking s**t, I am talking reality. Nowhere have I said Tannehill won't be good, I just want him to prove something.

    People forget that folks were high on Russell early in his carere, Ryan leaf was annointed early and was on the cover of SI. 2,3,4,5,6 games is not enough time to properly evaluate. If you guys want to go crazy henne style then go ahead, if he doesn't pan out don't say I didn't warn you about annointing guys too soon.

    Again, I THINK he'll be a good one but you guys are talking like it's a guarantee and it's not.

    even when this quote was initially said, I don't really see it. Tannehill was a bit of a late riser into the top 10 and it wasn't until the weeks leading up to the draft he was a consideration for the top 3. It's also fair to say people really didn't pay attention to Tannehill until Matt Barkley said he was staying in school.

    As soon as Russell and LSU obliterated Notre Dame in the Sugar Bowl people were saying if JaMarcus entered the draft he would be the first overall pick.

    Now if we are talking about QB risers, Kyle Boller from what I remember (and I was like 12 so I'm probably wrong here) Boller wasn't considered a potential first rounder until after his senior season and then raised a bit more after his workouts.
