    Ryan Tannehill Will Be a Star......................

    and if the Dolphin braintrust passes on him they will be screwing up yet again.

    This kid has everything you look for in a franchise QB, He's big, he's athletic, fast, strong arm, Accurate........he loves the game in "Peyton Manning" kind of way.


    Yes, he'll need a season probably to acclimate to the NFL....but if we could go back and draft Drew Brees knowing he needed some time to adjust, wouldn't we do it?


    Same with Aaron Rogers......wouldn't that be better than what we've wasted 12 years trying to do?


    If you don't like Tannehill as a prospect, then I totally understand.....if you don't want to draft him because you think it's a litttle to high at 8, or because he might need time to adjust to the NFL....then I think your making a mistake.


    This kid has everything your looking for, with the only exception being that he didn't play QB for 4 years in college. But many others that have succeeded in the NFL didn't either....including Cam Newton.
    Jay Fiedler can take his'n and lose to your'n.....or take your'n and lose to his'n.

    I almost dropped dead when I read an Akili Smith comparison today from Grantland. Just posting the other side of what could be. I'm hoping we don't have the option of taking RT but I'll support whatever they think is best.

    Quarterbacks

    Best: Tom Brady (76.6 points above expected return)
    Worst: Akili Smith (-45.9 points)
    We've really forgotten as a culture just how bad Akili Smith was. He's basically the Ryan Tannehill nightmare; after just two years of action in college, Smith's ideal size and arm strength pushed him up draft boards during the spring of 1999. He eventually settled in as the third franchise quarterback in a three-man group, and the Bengals made him the third overall pick behind fellow signal-callers Tim Couch and Donovan McNabb. McNabb was good, and Couch was middling, but Smith was abysmal. He completed 46.6 percent of his passes as a pro, threw 13 interceptions against just five touchdowns, and was out of football after 17 starts in four years. In his one year as the regular starter in Cincinnati, the Bengals offense averaged 11.6 points per game. Tannehill can't possibly be that bad, right?

    What makes you say that? Just wondering, because I fail to see the comparison between the two.
    I just try to be myself, whatever that is. I don't think about how I'll be remembered. I just want to be consistent over a long period of time. That's what the great players do.

    I would agree with your questioning that statement.
    Henne was robotic, Tannehill is far from....

    The BIGGEST knock on Henne, from where I stand, was his lack of passion and yearning to "go-for-the-throat".
    If he were in the armed forces, he would have been content to have been a footsoldier taking orders.
    What I want is an assasin.

    Remember when the grief was being piled on Henne, and he basically shrugged it off by saying (words to the effect) - "hey, no big deal, it's just football".

    THAT....was a slap in the face of all of us passionate fans.
    He just didn't give a s__t.

    And THAT is why, in my eyes, he can go to hell.

    Tannehill didn't get to play QB until his junior year. As a senior,A&M was nationally ranked and they flopped to a mediocre record

    Tannehill did not take the team to a higher level and make it better with his play. He was a wall flower and just blended in.

    His senior year was so good that his coach got fired and then hired by the team that theoretically needs him the most. Oh..the irony.

    Will Sherman let lightning strike him twice? Or will he go a different direction.

    I say they go DT, OG, ILB or trade down the #8 pick.

    I disagree.

    Much more like the next Brady Quinn.

    -Tannehill has shown proper footwork
    -has the arm strength to make sideline throws
    -has run a college system that is more complicated than most
    -knows the verbage involved in mastering an offense
    -has familiarity with the offense we are running here
    -has a keen ability to feel pressure in the pocket
    -has the size to be a durable NFL player

    You forgot:

    Was beat out at QB by two VERY average QB's.
    Is TERRIBLY inaccurate.
    Has shown ZERO leadership qualities..and I mean NONE.
    Locks onto his target as he approaches the LOS, and I'm talking about before the ball is even centered.
    Sucked against really bad defenses all season long.
