To clarify, I'm not saying we don't need great receivers, I'm just saying we can't use this as an excuse for Tannehill throwing picks.
A lot of people on this board agreed with us giving Brandon Marshall away for virtually nothing.
If our team was loaded with AllStar great receivers , runningbacks, offensive linemen, safety's and so on, it wouldn't matter who was in there at QB.
At some point Tannehill has to be held accountable for his performance.
Tannehill is a project, and he may yet turn out to be a very good qb, but he isn't ready to start in the nfl. Saying this around here gets you called clueless and not a real fan but honestly what about his season tells people he's ready to start?
The line and the receivers aren't great, but neither are his throws. It's not the lines fault he is throwing into double coverage with the game on the line.
Tanne has one of the quickest releases in the league. He was not getting any time at all to throw.
Bush & Co. were also getting nailed in the backfield all night.
What's the common denominator here?
The O-line sucked and let bills through over and over again.
No way we could get any rhythm going Passing or Rushing with that garbage line!
Did you see the play towards the end of the game when Martin let that guy through and then just stood there while Tanne was scrambling for his life?
Tanne should have got up and punched Martin in the face.
Long & the #2 Dirtiest Player in the NFL were no better.
Job #1: Protect the QB!
He had an opportunity to drive the team for a win in five of the six losses. The fact that he had to be a receiver and couldn't beat out Stephen McGee and that other dude who's name I can't even remember is a clear sign that a #8 pick was a reach for this loser. His wife could stand to eat a sandwich or too as well to put some meat on her bones. Okay that was low, but I am pissed. This team has been in "rebuilding" mode for almost 15 years. This is ridiculous. I feel like a Browns fan.
Yeah, it's hard to believe Tannehill can't rally the team when you considers our amazing oline gives him all day to trow to all those probowlers we have at WR and the great seam TE that he has to trow to. And then he also have this awesome running game to help him to. How can he not win with all that help? And on top of that he's already played in 10 games of his rookie year. He has no excuse. He should be playing like a Hall of famer by now.GET REAL PEOPLE!!
