    Miami Dolphins’ Next Big Thing: Ryan Tannehill

    n 2008, Mike Sherman became the Texas A&M head coach and placed Tannehill, who was a redshirt freshman, third on the quarterback depth chart, behind Stephen McGee and Jerrod Johnson. Tannehill felt there was more he could do for his team and opted to be a receiver. He went on to break school freshman records for receptions (55) and yards (844). He was only 42 yards away from breaking the all-time school record. He wasn’t allowed to be the team’s best quarterback so he became their best receiver. Through it all, he proclaimed he was team’s best signal-caller and went to every quarterback meeting. Two years later, he received his opportunity and proved that Sherman had made a mistake.Sherman isn’t going to make the same error twice.
    he NFL Network’s Heath Evans believes Tannehill can be better than Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III, “If you wanted to build a quarterback, you’d build him with that arm strength, his frame, athleticism, mental understanding of the game, and his base foundation. You give a great foundation to Joe Philbin to build on.”When asked if Tannehill could lead the Dolphins to the playoffs, Bush responded, “It’s been done before and I believe [Tannehill] can do it.”

    I am not sold on Tannehill but almost every young QB coming into the league is no guarantee. No doubt he has the physical tools, ability to lead and intelligence for the game but it will come down to whether or not the speed is to much for him. It's nice to be in a position that we may have a franchise QB but silly to project how good he may or may not be right now.

    I've been blasted into my shell by a decade plus of failures behind center but I must say it is nice to finally have a rookie to be excited about. Miami has paid their due, it is time to be relevant again so I'm rooting for the kid until he has proved it is time not to.

    I could seriously see Tannehill lining up with Calle Ocho and Jeff Fuller. I like Garrard and Matt Moore as well. Thank God we didn't screw the pooch on Kyle Orton.

    The only thing I don't like, just on the surface' is the 'push-chucking' throwing motion that he has. However, Phil Rivers has a similar approach and he's had a lot of success to this point, plus he's nowhere near the athlete that Tannehill is. If Tanny can use those legs to keep plays alive yet stay behind the line of scrimmage and chuck it 60 yards down the field then we're in for a lot of fun. Matt Moore can run it too but lacks the poise in the pocket that I pray Tanny possesses.

    I was under the impression it was the certified 69 or so drops by T/Hill's receivers that ultimately cost Sherman his job. Oopsie Whoopsie

    That's because news is generally considered non-fiction.

    Or the fact that he had one winning season in his five year tenure.
