    Pennington was an 18th pick and he never got in until Testeverde went down with injury.

    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.
    Aaron also had this "thing" in front of him named BRETT FAVRE.

    Without The Brett he doesn't sit that long.

    I think the point is that there a number of questions surrounding. With the competition being mere stop gaps, why not at least try to start finding answers to these questions ASAP. I'm not saying that he should start from game 1 but our team isn't good enough to allow a QB that we chose at 8 in the draft to sit a year.

    Let's hope Tannehill's development is better than Chad Henne's
    That was a disaster.

    Let's examine that comment .... "Our team isn't good enough."

    So you want to saddle a wet-behind-the-ears QB with only 19 college starts behind that team that isn't good enough? Why would you want to subject him to an O-line that gave up nearly 50 sacks and a WR unit with no identity learning the WCO? Do you realize the kinds of bad habits a young Tannehill could learn while running for his life and dealing with the chaos of his receivers not being in the right spots?

    Let Philbin get this team together and the veteran QB's handle the awkward stage. Make the situation the most optimal it can be before the baptism by fire. It's smart, responsible coaching.

    There's this "thing" in my post named WORDS THAT ALREADY ADDRESSED YOUR COUNTER. Read the entire post next time.

    And whether or not they would have rushed Aaron Rodgers into action, he wasn't ready for at least the first two seasons. Read up.

    And say Tannehill tanks, take him out and start thinking about the future. If he is actually the franchise QB the team envisioned him to be, GREAT. Let's find out in year one instead of waiting til next season to see that he was A) everything we hoped he would be or B) A disappointment and not worth investing more time into.

    I say put the kid up to the test. Not like he won't have a solid running game supporting him with Bush, Thomas, Miller, now possibly Slaton in the mix.

    Unless he is terrible in preseason I don't see the sense in delaying the inevitable starting of Tannehill just so he can watch middle of the pack QB's just get this team by this season.
    that has to be the dumbest thing I've heard to date
