In what world is the QB not to blame for a horrible offense? Yea, others get blame too, but don't be such blatant homers.
Have you been watching Luck.. Dude is about to have his team, the worst team last season, in the playoffs...he is playing great for a rookie qb and looks like a vet. Tannehill is playing like a rookie.

Everyone really needs to step back a little and take a good look around the league. There are a lot of rookie and young QB's out there who have similar records (RG3) who are not winners yet.
Just wait til LUck plays Houston twice. Things change in a hurry in this league.
Fact is we have a rookie QB who no one in this universe expected him to take over this offense and start the season. That is a hell of an accomplishment. We have an offense that is like its on autopilot where Sherman isnt really putting anything in that surprises teams anymore. They have our tape on us. Its time for Sherman to start putting in some fancy stuff and get the kid going(Matthews). We have a dancing RB in Bush who is not listening to the coaches and to hit the hole and at the same time defenses are stacking the box to challenge our rookie.
All this spells rookie QB has troubles. Any rookie QB would have troubles. You have to be patient with Philbin and let him get his guys in here and the next two years will be much better IMO than years past.
Tannehill has had problems finishing games in college and now in the pros but you also have to remember his 4 year situation at A&M. He is a ahead of the curve.
My boss who is a Bills fan told me the next day after the game that he wished they had lost because now fitzpatrick will stay another year with this coach and no one wants that. Alot of people know that Tannehill was bringing us back and that PI on Hartline was typical ref BS. True we sucked for 3 quarters, but I was much happier to see Matthews. I think this offense will become a little more consistent with this kid in. He is hungry and a bit of a natural. You have to remember where the world thought we would be. It is healthy for Tannehill to go through this.
reminds me of tony romo.
