Honestly until Tannehill starts steeping up more he will be questioned. I think the kid has a bright future, I don't agree with having any cause or concern yet. Luck had to succeed and succeed right now, not next year or the year after but right now. He was placed in the most insurmountable of positions in Indy, a team replacing a hall of fame QB by trading him away for Luck. The highest of hopes of any QB coming out of college and a chip on his shoulder when the Heisman Trophy went to RGIII because he posted a 27 for 31 347 yard 2 td 1 Int performance in a loss to Oklahoma State. Luck was the best QB in that class coming out of college no doubt about it.
Tannehill has shown he can read a defense with the best of them, he can adjust a play and he can see the coverages. Either a QB gets it or he doesn't these silly Henne comparisons are just that silly, Henne had no idea what the hell defense lined up across from him half the time and the result of that was checkdown Charley. Is Ryan Tannehill close to Andrew Luck right now, nope not even close. Will he be, not sure but I do know we haven't seen the kids potential peak yet and I do know that this team is not loaded with talent.
If the season ended right now and there was no more games to play and Miami finished 4-12 three quarters of you would be claiming prediction ESP since Miami had zero expectations coming into this season. Last I check we were a win over a 3 and 6 team away from climbing back to 5-5. Let's see what the kid and new coach have in them, are they the real leaders we all make them out to be or is this team going to fold up like a bunch of little school girls running from a junkyard dog.
I for one am excited to see what they have in them, the whole damn team, Long, Bush, Tannehill, Hartline, Philbin, the D.....everyone. It will just make it easier to define the amount of new blood the team will need to be infused with come the off season because make no bones about it this roster wasn't going to walk into the playoffs like the great teams in the league. They would have had to fight and claw for every inch of it if they made it, and the win loss coulomb and box scores reflect that. When they claw and fight and take care of business they are in every game but when they let off and play unmotivated they look like a steaming heaping pile of dog ****.
This season will server to clear the unmotivated pretenders out of the house one way or another.
What Would a Redneck Do?
Ryan Tannehill is proving to be the player that the experts thought he was. He was definitely outplayed by Locker last weekend, I don't think that's remotely debatable.
But we're in it now, and since we're not a playoff caliber team, we have to ride it out and hope he can at least be an average QB that we can build around. I think he can be AT LEAST as good as Flacco, if not better. Flacco, with help from a great running game in most weeks and good defense for most of his career is certainly a QB that can win playoff games. Let's be honest, the Ravens were an easy dropped TD from being in the Superbowl last year.
Tanny won't win you games like Drew Brees, we just have to hope he doesn't lose games like Vinny Testaverde.
And probably the only rookie qb to come in and not have a true #1 wr and absolutly no weapons except for bush but they dont use him out of the backfield.....I would love to see all the other rookies throught the years play with this offense on top of all that we dont have a running game so thats never good for a rookie. Wait til he gets some weapons or one weapon he can rely on.....This was an outstanding pick by Mia!
Boys and girls, we took a first round QB for the first time in years. At times he's looked good, at times he's looked bad.
Can't we at least get behind the guy and give him a chance before everybody decides he's garbage. Geez, 3 weeks ago he was the best thing on earth, now he can't play ?
Get some perspective FFS.
What the hell happened to Henne again? I remember he played pretty good and one day out of nowhere he starting sucking and never recovered..wtf?
