I am quite certain that you will be hard pressed to find any of those distraught panther fans who felt cheated that Luck didn't come out last year feeling the same way after his first year. Very few could have predicted Newtons quick success, and I doubt very seriously that Luck will put up numbers any where near what Cam put up his first year.


    The fact of the matter is we just don't know who is going to be better. All signs point to Luck being the most NFL ready QB since Peyton, and RT being at least a year away from being close to reaching his potential, but NFL talent evaluation is not an exact science. RT is now a dolphin, and a dolphin with the most POTENTIAL that we have had at QB in quite awhile. No one knows if it will translate to wins, or championships, but that is what keeps us buying tickets or glued to the screen for every game, preseason game, and TC practice to see how he is doing. Enjoy the ride. And if he fails miserably I will be sitting right beside you calling for someone's head. But until then I am going to hope for the best.

    Well, that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. We cannot trust a 3 year starter which means we are fools for believing in a player that could not beat out a guy that now is the night manager of a Burger King.

    I'm not calling for anyone's head. I honestly just read for the first time that the only reason Tannehill played QB in his Jr year was the starting QB was lost to a injury and it jolted me.

    I hope this also wakes up the "start Tannehill NOW" fans to understand that at best, he is a project.

    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 agree, there are definitely some things that makes you really nervous about RT. And I also agree that we have to really be patient and let him grow into the job rather than force him into something he is not yet ready to take over. But I still say even if he is a total bust it was the right move. We HAVE to start taking chances at the QB position. Waiting 30 years is unforgivable. If you have to reach, then fine reach. Do what you have to do, but getting a QB is all that matters.

    Actually I think Tannehill was recruited as a QB but agreed to play WR b/c he wanted to get on the field. He went to all the QB meetings all 4 years he was at A&M. He was not an afterthought at QB.

    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.
    Where did you hear, read or see that Tannehill only started because Johnson was injured?

    I could care less what these guys did in college to be honest. It's a whole different ball game.

    And he was good for a year and a half, with the 2010 actually reaching closer to great status.

    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.

    Were I would get concerned if I was a Dolphin fan is IF after this training camp he is the Third QB.

    He was taken in the top 10 of the draft, I am not saying he needs to start right away but he better be good enough to secure the Number 2 job and give the organization confidence to go into the season with him as your Backup
