Let the secenario play out. Alot of the problem with our fan base is unrealistic expectations coupled with knee jerk reactions. At some point dolfans need to learn to act instead of reacting.
    Well maybe thats why you didn't see me rip the kid one bit. I was all for drafting him, so i hope he works out. The fools are the people who were anointing him a franchise qb after a few games. He is neither that nor a bust at this point. All we can do at this point is talk about what he has done so far, and as of late it hasn't been to good for a variety of reasons. As always, time will tell.

    Your overall point is true to a degree. He doesn't seem to have the clutch factor. It's really early in his career though, so let's see what happens.

    I watched that play over and he led clay away from the defender but clay kept his route flat and never angled in. I think clay is a partial blame on that one

    Would you have said the same about Payton Manning in his first year! Look at Payton's record and number of interceptions. Tannehill has no weapons to throw to. He is a gun slinger with no weapons.

    Say what you will but calling him dumb means you know nothing. Please do just a little research on his academic history.

    AND AS OF RIGHT NOW EVERYBODY CAN MAKE AN ARGUEMENT THAT Tanny isnt starting material ? only because WE DIDNT GO OUT AND GET HIM SOME DECENT HELP AT WR , when T.O. was/is still out there right along with Plax , and BOTH PLAYERS had almost 1,000 yards respective , and most important THEY NEVER GOT INTO TROUBLE, yeah , we can say that they were locker room cancers , but ive never seen NOTHING to prove that , and esp the last year they both played they were on very good behavier , so imo we can put the blame on the coaching staff for not bringing in some talent at WR , and imo it didnt help Tanny much at all for playin this year excp getting his feet wet .

    Tannehill has regressed because the offense around him is regressing. Think about it. Jake Long is getting worse by the week. You can tell Tannehill feels a lot more uncomfortable in the pocket the last few weeks than when he was in early October. Long is going to get Tannehill killed. Martin is regressing, he's starting to get beat a lot as well. Incognito and all his boneheaded penalties is killing the offense's momentum, pushing Miami back, putting Tannehill in 3rd and longs. Reggie Bush has obviously regressed as well... fumbling, dancing, giving himself up easily instead of running over defenders, just ineffective out there. Hartline, again regressing. Missing in action most of the time, pushing off or fumbling. I mean if the offense is crumbling around you, it's hard to expect Tannehill to continue play great. Against Tennessee and Buffalo, Tannehill seemed to be trying to do too much and was forcing passes cause I guess he saw no one else on offense was doing anything to make a play. Offensive line has got to get better...I think that happens by getting rid of Long next season.

    This is the strangest thread.

    1) This is how you spell "ridiculous."

    2) Aaron Rodgers didn't sit after being drafted because of some master plan. Aaron Rodgers sat because Green Bay had this Brett Favre guy who was playing pretty well.

    3) We're really having these conversations about Tannehill after ten games?

    Quick, how many comebacks did Peyton Manning, Troy Aikman, and John Elway have in their first seasons? Seeing as those three won a COMBINED seven games in their first seasons, it certainly wasn't many. it took Peyton Manning until Week 10 of his rookie season to have his first comeback win. Up until that point, he was 1-8. And he had these two guys on his team named Marvin Harrison and Marshall Faulk.

    Aikman? He didn't get his first comeback win until the first game...of his second season. It was also his first in of any kind in the pros. He didn't win anything in his first season, with Herschel Walker and Michael Irvin.

    I think all that we've firmly established thus far is that Tannehill is a rookie QB who is making mistakes that were expected, and that we don't have any future Hall of Famers at WR or RB.
