When was the last time Miami called a pass thrown into the end zone? You know when we get the ball down at the 5 yard line, it's going to be five runs. And hey, it's working.
THE MIAMI DOLPHINS ARE 9-3 SINCE CUTTING DALLAS THOMAS.
He won tonight and that matters...
as long as we win i dont care. he really doesnt have alot to throw to in the red zone
Tannehill won't be perceived as a TOP QB if his stats aren't up to par with the TOP QBs. Right now, with his stats being pedestrian, people that don't watch Tannehill as much as we do would infer from his statline that he's a below average QB.
Name a QB with below average stats that was considered a TOP QB. Tannehill needs to get his TD passing up. I agree with OP.
I think more important than how many TDs Tannehill has is how few turnovers. Miami has a solid defense and running game. Much like Alex Smith with SF if Miami doesn't gift wrap the game for the other team we can compete with anyone...we even did well against Houston in Houston until the turnovers.
I could care less about the amount of touchdowns HE'S scored. I care about how many times he's led us down the field, and WE'VE scored.
We are a run orientated team with few passing threats to go all the way, so the concern is on the receivers, not on Tannehill. A good running game can take you quite far, but not far enough, the next step is getting Tannehill better targets.
