Dude has NO IDEA what he's talking about. Tannehill is not going to be "thrown into action immediately". And as for Miami "wiffing" on Matt Flynn, had the Dolphins REALLY wanted Matt Flynn, they could have had him.

Saying how he'll be thrown into the fire immediately shows how clueless the person that wrote the article is. He's gonna sit just like Henne did.
People have opinions. Right now there are probably over 1000 articles talking about each and every pick of the draft. Whether it was Tannehill, Coples, Floyd, etc - somebody won't like it. All we can do is see how it plays out.
Philbin is an idiot.
Yup just opinion...everyone has one.
Who cares? The Chiefs and Browns seem to "win" the draft every other year and it hasn't gotten them very far.
WHO CARES....Did i want him at 8? no. However its got to the point where we need to take shots on these qbs until we hit. U rather have another safe pick in a lineman? We have gotten nowhere with long, if you hit on the qb the sky is the limit. Lets see what the kid can do, give him time to develop and if another qb is there next year you take him also. Man I wish we were run like the pats, they know exactly how to do the draft.
The problem here is this offseason there wasn't too many QBs to choose from. Other than RGIII and Andrew Luck, there wasn't anything else to choose from really, so we got stuck reaching for Tannehill @ #8.
The ideal selection for us this year would have been RGIII, but we would have needed to give up a crap load of picks for him. Andrew Luck wasn't even considered as being available.
