I have not yet come to any CONCRETE conclusions about Tannehill, but I am strongly LEANING towards losing my hope that he can be a franchise QB. I just don't see it. He may be a quasi-starter type, but I have serious doubts about him being a quality starter, let alone an ELITE QB. That prospect seems LAUGHABLE right now. I mean, even ROOKIE franchise and/or all-star level QBs show SOME flashes of greatness in their first year. Tannehill shows flashes of becoming the next Drew Bledsoe...only instead of having the early success, he will move straight into the scared, inconsistent turnover prone QB that Bledsoe became in Buffalo and Dallas. I'm going to keep watching, but he is showing signs of REGRESSION, not improvement. At this point, it might be better to play Matt Moore and shut Tanny down for the year...More than anything else I see, the thing that worries me the most, besides the nervousness and inability to rise to pressure, is his lack of leadership ability. He is a timid, scared, soft spoken, shrinking violet right now. That may change, I REALLY REALLY HOPE IT DOES, but my patience is wearing thin...

I guess either you got it or you don't through half of your rookie season hugh. Guess Eli should have been gone a long time ago and Vince young was the next Brady. These are some very immature/premature post about a rookie
You all should be grateful we have a team and owner who are committed to winning. My eyes are open now after seeing the mess Jeffrey Loria is making of the Marlins who are my favorite baseball team. And be patient damn, Eli Manning was worse than Tannehill at this stage. Remember these struggles will only make the team stronger. Philbin is a character guy and he'll show our team the value of trust and unity something we had none of prior to him.
You know you have no weapons when we are telling Davone Bess to go deep.
The offensive line is playing terrible. Teams should not be able to get that much pressure with four guys.
The play calling is laughable. At least Daboll brought a little creativity once in a while.
Tanehill is starting to make me worry a little he looks scared. I'm not ready to give up on him yet though. At least put a line in front of him that can handle a four man rush.
