Do you have next weeks Mega Million numbers while you're prediction the future?
Josh Freeman: 10 tds, 18 picks, 59.8 QB rating.
Matt Stafford: 13 tds, 20 picks, 61 QB rating.
Christian Ponder: 13 tds, 13 picks, 70.1 QB rating
Sam Bradford: 18tds, 15 picks, 76.5 QB rating.
And not as recent but lead his team to the NFC Championship game: Alex Smith, 1 td, 11 picks, figured it to be so terrible i didnt even look QB rating.
Doesnt look like "very well" performances to me. Perhaps we should judge the quarterback on his play and level of progression, but thats just my opinion. By the way, Ryan Tannehill has a qb rating of 70.8 at this moment. By your logic, Freeman and Stafford are busts. Tough break for Bucs and Lions fans.
TB,Min,STL with their QB's they are not going to be playoff threats year in and year out during each QB's duration on those respected team. Stafford is the exception. But if your arguement is exceptions, you give yourself false hope in life 90% of the time.
All these teams are playoff threats this season, with the exception of perhaps the Rams, though they are extremely competative(something we learned).
You seem to want a rookie quarterback to secure a playoff spot by week 10. Guess what, rookies make mistakes sometimes. Sometimes those mistakes cost them games. After their rookie year they tend to improve. Just like every single quarterback i listed. If you were to ask fans of the Lions, Bucs, Vikings, and Rams if they would want to cut their quarterback, 90% of them would say "no". I give a 10% opening because there are fans such as yourself who judge players on stats and refuse to be pleased no matter how well their quarterback plays.
The problem is as fans you guys got to high when we were 4-3...this is the same team everyone had going 3-13 or worst. Bottom line is even through we shown a glimpse of hope this isn't a team ready for playoffs. I was telling everyone who would say "bet you glad to be a Dolphin fan now". Yes, I am and will be a dolphin fan but I'm a student of the game and I knew we were not going to playoffs but was hopeful. Just saying we have a decent rookie coach and QB that can grow into something special. He has less than 30 starts as QB...period college and NFL. We will have growing pains with him. The more weapons he get going forward the better he and this team will be. I just want to see progress each season to wear its to the point we expect to compete for a playoff spot or better.
What da hell ya looking at!? Yes I'm a Miami Dolphins fan and damn proud of it!!!!!
