    As a borderline Russell Wilson fanatic, I'll admit he's been underwhelming. Watching him play, he's been surprisingly flustered. Tannehill, on the other hand, has not been overwhelmed by the moment which is something we should really appreciate. Wilson comes off as so mature that it's hard to remember he's a rookie. I still believe in the kid, but he's not there yet.

    Damn, WV. You didn't take the bait.


    I think Tannehill COULD be better than a lot of NFL quarterbacks. However, if you asked me to pick, for one game, which quarterback I wanted on my team, Tannehill wouldn't be very high on that list.

    If you're talking about building for the future, Tannehill is one of the highest on that list.

    What really impresses me about Tannehill is the very evident improvement he makes from week to week. We are not seeing batted passes after game one. We are seeing fewer poor decisions with where to go with the ball. We are seeing him take better care of the ball when the pass rush gets to him. The numbers aren't gaudy, but look at what is surrounding him. Every week we have 2-3 plays where his weapons just flat out kill drives where Tannehill is moving the team downfield. This week we had Charles Clay dropping the ball and Daniel Thomas embarrassingly get run down from behind on that nice third down screen pass.

    The single most disastrous thing that could have happened to the Miami Dolphins in 2012 would have been David Garrard starting week one at Houston.
    Yep.

    Hopefully by years end, tannehill is rated higher than all these guys. Still gots ways to go, but definitely showing more than any of our previously drafted QBs.

    Only ones on the list I think are arguable are Newton, Dalton and Romo. Based on just this year maybe only Dalton.

    Hard to argue with Cam's production last year with 35 TD's, given they lost most of their games last year because of an awful defense. This year defenses have adjusted and kept Cam in the pocket more and forced him left if scrambling. He has not proven, even a little, that he is capable of mentally adjusting. Today they had that game in the bag when Cam rolled out and had a guy wide open in the end zone. Short hopped the receiver by 5 yards.

    Romo is partially a victim of a terrible O-line, but he makes way too many mental mistakes which aids in the Cowboys poor production. Both he and Romo have light years better weapons that RT has, so overall advantage goes to RT.

    Dalton, it a much better player than I ever thought he could be in the NFL. I do think he's probably pretty close to his ceiling as it stands right now. However, he has been more productive than RT up to today's game. He does have much better receiving weapons so it's a close call even with RT 5 games into his career with no top tier weapons.

    Now I would not trade RT for any of these as his ceiling is higher IMO. Based on last year, Cam would be highly considered as he's being a better athlete and put up huge numbers. However, RT far exceeds him in game intelligence and poise and I think he will adapt and improve more than Cam has shown early into his second year.

    I have this kid as an above average QB right now. His play demonstrates it. He played like **** in week one vs. a great Texans defense in his first ever start. Since then he has played well for the most part. Our two wins the kid has no turnovers. Thats obviously the key to our success. When he dosent turn the ball over we will be tough as hell to beat.

    Against Arizona, we saw him make every throw on any route you wanted to see. He can make them all. This week, I was blown away with how well he moved in and out of the pocket. He made some great decisions today as well as some great throws. His poise is outstanding as well. He seems to have command out there. Obviously, playing in the same system as he did in college is to his benefit, but this kid has proven he has all the tools. The sky is the limit.

    Lets run this list..... this is mine, make your own if you wish.

    1) Fitzpatrick - Totally marginal starter.
    2) buttfumble - Duh. buttfumble blows. You know how hard it is in the NFL today to not complete at least 50% of your attempts. So hard that only buttfumble hasnt done that this season.
    3) Weeden - He is looking much better than week 1, but he still cant **** with Tannebeast
    4) Dalton - Tannehill's ginger bitch today. Lauren texted Ryan after the game saying she is putting on a red wig so he can smack that ass just as hard when he gets home.
    5) Gabbert - blows
    6) Locker - I count him as the starter since he would be if not injured.
    7) Palmer - Washed up. Never the same since tearing up his knee
    8) Cassel - Hot garbage
    9) Romo - I would say he is the most overrated QB in the league, if not for some of the guys in his division
    10) Vick - Overrated fumble and INT machine. That team is good enough to win it all with Tannehill. Just think if they had a bonafied elite QB...... Dream team
    11) Bob Griffin the turd - OVER----RATED!!! Got his **** smacked by the Falcons today.... tryin to matchup with Matty Ice... GET REAL!!!!
    12) Cutler - Another overhyped guy. Wait till it gets clutch time and he throws 17 picks or gets injured
    13) Ponder - I like this player. He could develope into a solid QB. He's no Tannebeast though.
    14) Scam Newton - Hype. Put a towel on your head and sit the **** down. SuperScam.
    15) Josh Freeman - They need to draft another QB. Very marginally mediocre player.
    16) Wilson - Finding his way to the bench soon from what Mort was saying this morning. Total meh.
    17) Bradford - Very average. Rookie year may turn out to be his best.
    18) Kolb - Hes Kolb.

    So that leaves me already ranking Tannebeast as the 14th best QB in the league. Not too bad young man. To be honest, there are a couple of guys I wont have a problem putting him ahead of if he continues to play well for the rest of the season. I simply cant put him ahead of any of the elites after even a whole season, but there are a couple of guys he could certainly pass up who havent etched their name into that top tier yet.
    WV I have to get you on film, I need to get you your own blog, PM when you get a chance if you're local, I will film a weekly get real segment and upload on youtube for the masses.

    You're hilarious.

    I think at the least his ceilling is higher than all those quarterbacks listed. add alex smith to the list too. If you're talking for one game then I dunno. I really can't blame tannehill for any of our lost games and that says a lot about a rookie qb.


    RG3's value is lower simply because of how much it cost the deadskins to aquire him. those two picks will end up being a WR and prob a RG for us.

    Bob Griffin's value is lower because he is a ****ing BUST!

    Cam Newton = tall Ronnie Brown with small ears. Same QB skills.
