    Translate this to your own experience:

    Have you ever seen a promising employee promoted too soon? Some work their way through the difficult period; some crack under the pressure.

    When a person feels better prepared for a job, he/she does better initially, and that usually leads to greater long-term success.

    . . .

    There's nothing like game action, so there will be struggles for any and every QB when he starts playing in the NFL. But some struggles are obstacles to overcome, and some struggles can appear to be impossible to overcome. We don't have Brett Favre, but whether or not Favre was there, Rodgers wasn't ready to start as a rookie. Some QB's come out more polished than others. People develop at different rates. I'd say that Rodgers, over the past few seasons, has played the position as well as anyone I've ever seen.

    This all boils down to what the staff feels is in Tannehill's best long-term interest. It's a person-to-person issue. Aaron Rodgers didn't start his NFL career nearly as quickly as Matt Ryan. Hell, you can argue that over his first two seasons, he struggled more than Chad Henne. Sometimes you get P. Manning, and you put him in and let him figure out everything on the fly. Sometimes you get A. Rodgers, and you let him learn at different pace. The important thing is the end result.

    In Joe Philbin we have appointed a Head Coach who knows something about developing a high potential QB with Aaron Rodgers. I say that we leave it to him to determine when Tannehill is ready to be thrown in the deep end.

    Herm didn't say anything incorrect. Discredit the man all you want but he's right on the money in this case. Matt Moore and Garrard are garbage, if Tanny can't outshine them then he sucks anyway, which is what i thought all along. Give the kid the keys to the kingdom and if he succeeds in showing a lot of promise, GREAT! If he fails, at least we can cut our losses on a loser early.
    Matt Moore sucks, Garrard is finished, and we have NO WEAPONS. Get over it people, we aren't going anywhere this year, and I want to see what the kid can do.

    When you hire a new employee for the express purpose of replacing a current employee so as to upgrade the position, and you essentially ask him to observe and hopefully absorb and learn from the experience you are usually inviting failure. Rogers, behind and learning from Favre makes sense. Tannehill behind and learning from our two other current quarterbacks, not so much sense.

    there's several good reasons why Mr Edwards is no longer on the sidelines… this is obviously one of them.

    "The Dolphins need to start Tannehill now," Edwards writes: "Miami finished 6-10 overall and 3-3 in a tough AFC East last season. After a rough offseason, the Dolphins drafted Tannehill in the first round at No. 8 overall. If they drafted him that high, he'd better be their franchise QB. Right?"

    "The real question is: How much better is Matt Moore going to be than Tannehill?" Edwards continues. "Are the Dolphins going to win two more games with him? Maybe go 8-8? What does that accomplish? They are rebuilding. They might as well find out what they have in Tannehill now."

    Here is the thing: Edwards now has a cushy job at ESPN. He has the luxury to comfortably say another team should play a rookie quarterback when Tannehill clearly is not ready. If Edwards were still head coach of the New York Jets or Kansas City Chiefs, would he play Tannehill, or any rookie who was too green? Probably not.

    In fact, Edwards had a chance to play Brodie Croyle his rookie year over veteran Damon Huard, and Edwards wisely chose Huard and won nine games that year. Croyle didn't start his first game until Year 2. Edwards also had a young Chad Pennington in New York and Pennington didn't crack Edwards' starting lineup until Year 3.

    Edwards coined the phrase, "Hello! You play to win the game!" Miami going with Tannehill right now would not give the Dolphins the best chance to win in Week 1.

    for once Walker provides some sense in the matter, as he said, easy for Herm to say a two time fired coach now sitting comfy getting paid im sure some absurd salary to give his opinion about teams players he has never coached
    You point is well taken...however, Brodie Croyle wasn't taken 8th overall.


    Still, I'm kinda with Herm on this one. Especially with a draft with Barkley, Thomas, Bray, Wilson among others, I would make it a priority to see Tannehill in the gauntlet for a series of games resulting some game film on him for other coaches. I want to see if Tannehill can still perform promisingly even with a scouting report on him.


    He doesn't have to be Peyton Manning out there, but the article is correct. We're ultimately going nowhere fast with Moore, or Garrard. Both are on 1 yr deals, and I doubt either is brought back. I want to see Tannehill give me reasons to feel good about 2013 and beyond.


    Or else, we're right back where we were in 2009 with Chad Henne without being sure he was the guy. Gotta let the pups play in the dogs pin sometime...
