    Was Ryan Tannehill a one year wonder?

    We all know that Tannehill has not had that many starts as a QB in College. He started for a season and a half.

    But why the half? Did he beat out Jarrod Johnson mid way though through the season? No, he only started because Jarrod Johnson was injured. Tannehill was still playing WR, he had 11 catches.

    So Tannehill only won the starting job his senior year when he beat out freshman Jameill Showers.

    i don't believe RG3 was on any upper echelon radar screens before this year; ditto Cam Newton and his one and done at Auburn. One is TBD the other I'd say has worked out at least alright.

    I don't think our new OC would bet his career if he didn't see nfl potential.

    You mean Mike Sherman who is only our OC because he was fired by Texas A&M............

    Do you think drafting Tannehill was his call?

    I am sure if Sherman did not believe in Tannehill, he would make sure everyone knew that he was not worth a pick, let alone a top 10 pick.

    Gase was asked by one executive if he knew his personal record against Dan Quinn, the Seattle defensive coordinator who became the head coach in Atlanta. "It's 0-2," Gase responded, "and I'm going to tell you something right now: He's never going to f---ing beat me again."

    I completely agree. Sherman would probably have loved to not draft Tanny and avoid all the drama of the connection back to college. He must have felt pretty strongly that there is something worth working with in him.

    In order to be a "one year wonder" don't you actually have to be good for a year?

    LOL, you do have a way with words. I would have to say he was GOOD for that year. Maybe not great but definitely good. But he obviously wasn't drafted for that, he was drafted for his untapped potential. That is why so many have such a problem with drafting him at #8. I personally don't have a problem with it, because of the way the new rookie salary cap is now more forgiving for high draft pick mistakes, and the fact that I don't want to wait another 30 years to see if another Marino falls into our laps.

    just curious, why do you even bother "rooting" for this team? 99.9% of your posts are negative sarcastic backhanded insults to the team and its players, what is the point?

    I didn't like Tannehill before the draft and I'm not going to change my mind now just because the Fins drafted him.
