Has anybody noticed last 2 weeks teams stopped blitzing RT? They stack the run and sucessfully rush passer with 3-4 guys.We have no deep threat,no seem stretcher and no time to throw! Those are some serious odds against any qb to overcome,lets give the kid some time and some weapons before we send him packing
Matt Ryan has possibly best wr trio in league,hall of fame te,solid running game ,plays indoors yet TJ Yeates has more playoff victories in 1 season than Ryan has in 5yrs.He is average at best if your happy with mediocrity then you are right we should have drafted him
2 weeks ago Tannehill was The Next Great One. Even people far outside of S Fla. were singing his praises.
He didn't all of a sudden forget how to play, he had 2 subpar games as a ROOKIE QB who most people thought would never even see the field AT ALL in 2012. Exactly like most of the great QBs have done in their rookie years.
Body of work, guys. He is FAR ahead of where he was expected to be at this point. He is much better than Henne at his absolute best with 5-6 years more experience than Tannehill has. Because he lost the head-to-head encounter with Luck everyone now wants to throw him under the bus? Luck is a great talent, the game was on the road, and we STILL have no supporting cast thanks to ireland. We are still a team that sneaks up on mediocre teams and squeaks out 5-6 wins a year against them, and occasionally annihilates an Oakland or two, but no better than that.
I think a lot of you are just upset that your hero and savior garrbage was too old and hurt and NOT GOOD ENOUGH to beat Tannehill out. tannehill to you will always be "the guy who's not as good as ________________" (insert flavor-of- the-month wannabe here). "Not as good as" cam, who is remaking Carolina into such an awesome juggernaut, and "not as good as" matt ryan, who has the opposite problem of being overhyped yet surrounded with actual TALENT, you know, that thing we never see because of ireland's inside-out drafting.
Get some actual talent in Miami and we will win and Tannehill will be a Pro Bowl player.
Ryan Tannehill. Ah, what a relief. Life is good.
If you look at the receivers taken in the draft few are lighting it up right now.
Kendall Wright at 20 has 390 yards and 4 TD's
T. Y Hilton at 92 has 355 yards and 2 TD's
Blackmon (5) and Floyd (13) are around 200 yards and 1 TD
Just making the point that iamtiv's comments
"We could've taken a true impact player at another position and picked up some guy in the 3rd round and be a better team right now."
are not that far fetched.
Seattle and Miami were almost identical teams last year and Seattle choose to go free agency for starting qb along wih draft. We elected to go draft along with our proven Matt Moore.
They are a better team right now. Doesn't mean they will be in the future when Tannehill gets some weaons to use.
And the stupid threads just keep on coming.As is always the case on this board, unless you're playing like a hall of famer after 2 games in your rookie year you will never be anything in the NFL and should have never been drafted at all. Tannehill has played 8 whole games in the NFL and has no running game, no WR's or TE's that can get in the end zone and has an oline that won't protect him. Put him in a decent team and you'll all be wishing we had him. I'm glad we got him(about the only thing Ireland's done right)and just hope we can get him some help.Stats only tell part of the story. I've seen baseball players hit 3 line drives right at somebody and then hit a bloober for a base hit. If you didn't watch the game the box will say he went 1 for 4 and you would believe he had a line drive hit and 2 grounders and a strike out. You have to watch the games and see what really happened!!
