To be honest, I have no problem in people questioning the pick....I know I do. However, I still went out and ordered a Tannehill jersey and will hope like hell he can beat the odds. The guy has 1.5 years of REAL QBing experience, regardless of what tools he has and we just spent a #8 pick on him....IT IS A HUGE RISK and IMHO the QB fiasco this year (along with the Head Coach fiasco from last year) was probably looming in the minds of Ross and Ireland when making this call. I think there would have been a huge backlash if we didn't select a QB on a team that is already struggling to sell 30,000 season tickets.
The Long article was stupid, but I for one can't blame any reporter who questions the pick. Now lets go Tannehill and prove their butts wrong!
