Over time he could turn out to be great, I am not saying he won't be great but I am not saying he will be either. I want to see him prove it and when he does I'll tip my cap.
A man once wisely said:
Does he need to play better, yes, and we have seen him play better, but lets not forget the entire team is playing poorly...look at other top 10 QB's and have they have struggled when their team has player poorly...lets try to remember that football is about 11 guys one each side of the ball and one can not fully understand what one individual does until they take into account what the other 11 are doing as well.
I blame Joe McKnight and the fact that ST didn't try harder to contribute a 2nd TD knowing how impotent an offense featuring a QB with a sub 45% completion percentage and 55 Quarterback Rating (traditional measurement) managing to score 2 offensive TDs in the prior 3 games. Westoff's best jest unit should have tried harder dammnit!
When you only try to score on running plays when you're in the redzone that might lead to a misleading stat
Miami has now played 4 close games:
NYJ: set up K for 48 yd Fg in OT on wet grass
Ari: threw INT to set up game winning FG for opponent
Cincy: after Cincy pulled w/in 17-13 in 4th Tannehill had 3 possessiosn to end it or at least make it a TD lead. Failed each time, Miami won b/c the D kept stopping Cincy
SL: after SL pulls w/in 17-14 has chance to end game, would ave given ball bacl to SL w/ 5 mins left but fake punt gets you first down. he gives ball back to SL w/ plenty of time and if SL doesn't totallt screw up their time mgmt late the game at least gets to OT but he gave SL a chance like he did the previous 3 weeks.
This does't show up in ratings.
