    Ill respond to this stupid comment the same way I did when you made the stupid comment in another thread. You think that might have to do with the fact we never let him throw the ball inside the 10 unless its 3rd down and everyone knows he's going to pass the ball? We have, what 10-11 rushing TD's? We also lack any kind of red-zone threat. Bess and Hartline for all they've done this year, do NOT create mis-matches inside the redzone. Neither is a physical presence. While most teams use playaction on 1st and goal to get an easy passing td, we just pound the ball, which works most the time but not all the time. Tough to get passing TD's when you never let you QB throw the ball in the endzone inside your 10 and the few times you do its 3rd down. Also tough to get long passing touchdowns when you dont have a WR who can create on his own. His lack of TD's has nothing to do with his ability. You actually watch the games or just follow the statline? Its no coincidence that both of his TD passes have come outside the 10 yard line. QB's get the majority of their TD passes inside the 10-15 yard line. Tannehill doesnt get that benefit.

    No, at least not yet... cause that's only part of the story:

    he's also #15 in total yds/ 16 in yds/attempt and 17 in yds/game. So long as he moves us into scoring positions and continues to entrust the lead to his kicker and defenders, I can live with this for a rookie with 5 starts.

    I'd be concerned if we had receiving weapons that are a true threat especially inside the 10. When your best target in those scenario is Fasano, I would not expect big TD numbers. No cut on Fasano as he's solid overall, but far from an elite go to threat.

    Even with what we have, I pretty sure you'll see the TD passes pick up as the season progresses.

    Nope.. we're running in the redzone more, and a lot of our td's are coming on the ground.. Tannehill was very efficient today, and has thrown very well against the blitz. The yards and percentages are there, and passing TD's will come.. I like what I see with Tannehill, and I think it's only the beginning of what we're going to see from him.

    Yes, the Dolphins should trade him immediately. Are you kidding? He just got done playing only his fifth NFL game, a win on the road, and he has improved every week. It looks like the sky is the limit with him and you think we should be concerned? Amazing.

    And considering he should be 4-1 in those first 5 games is ****ing impressive. Only somebody who doesnt watch the game or has no common sense at all would concern themselves with his lack of TD passes. As mentioned by everyone with a clue, the Dolphins dont even TRY to throw the ball in the endzone. If they were doing what other teams did and were running playaction on 1st and 2nd down inside the 10 and we still weren't getting passing TD's and instead were settling for FG's it'd be a different story. And thats not even mentioning the fact we dont have a redzone threat to throw to.
