    Too bad that stat hasn't done anything for his TD totals.

    Agreed, Long ball accuracy is way overrated. Passing TD's is what make this league go and right now Tannehill is last amoung starting QB's wirth only 5.

    way over rated stat.

    I don't think its overrated its just the truth. He can throw deep. Unfortantely they haven't been TD passes. This is without downfield threats so thats impressive.

    (On Miami sports teams being popular)

    -“That’s not competition,” LeBron said. “That’s like you rooting for your family members. That’s not competition at all. It would be great to have him, but we’ll see.”

    actually it is not the truth. Espn writers can't even read their own sites stats. It should have said that Tannehill leads the NFL in passes over 31 yards (NOT 21). That is where he has 57 % completion rating and 141 rating. But it is only involving 7 passes. 4 for 7 wth 1 TD. too small of a sample to put any stock into.

    When you look a the 21-31 yard passes he has a 60.7 QBR with 4 of 13 with 1 TD and 1 pick.

    So for passes over 21 yards he is 8 for 20 (40%) 2 Td's and 1 pick. That equates to a QBR of 100

    Still impressive with what he has to work with but hardly the story reported by espn. Do they ever get anything right?

    I bet if you add a Mike Wallace type player it will sky rocket upwards
    1. Sign Mike Wallace
    2. Resign Smith, Hartline, Starks, & Fasano.
    3. Draft CB Rd. 1
    4. Draft FS & "Seam Threat" TE Rd. 2
    5. Draft WR & DE Rd. 3
    6. Draft LB

    Hater's shake my hand, but i keep that sanitizer on DECK!

    Unfortunately, considering how well Wallace has been playing (that catch on MNF), the Steelers would have to be insane to let him walk. Hopefully we'll have a shot at him though. *crosses fingers*

    Dude, Wallace Plays for the Steelers, and Will next Year Too. Get out of Fantasy Land! Hartline is Good, So is Bess. Tannehill is not extending plays, and he is throwing INTS. 3 Sunday and 3 against Houston. And Only has 5TD Passes. Take a Look at what Jake Locker did against us on Sunday. Cant name any of his receivers? And they did just fine 37-3. THILL better bring it tomorrow night. A Few more 3 INT games and will be looking elsewhere, I don't care who you are. NO QB in the NFL can throw 3 INTS in a Game and be a Starter for Long.
