The D will RushYa, Like Moscow
I didn't read through this entire thread but here is my view on it:
I was a big time Chad Henne supporter. I still think he could salvage a respectable career in the NFL. He has a big time arm, he is beastly against the blitz and he's even building up better pocket awareness. He had to deal with Dan Henning, David Lee and the wildcat his first 2 years starting and then got hurt early in 2011 with a new OC that I thought could possibly get better results out of him. I would have liked to see him work with Coach Philbin however he needed a change of scenery more than anything else. I'm in the minority, and I'm not talking about the 12% African American, 10% Hispanic minority that is in this country, I'm talking about the <1% minority that didn't hate Chad Henne as a Dolphins fan.
Matt Ryan . . . his team has the best record in the league, he has great numbers while we all want to trade away/cut/not resign Jake Long. I was in favor of the Long pick at the time but it is clear to me now that unless you have a SURE answer at QB, you need to keep picking them until you do. Matt Ryan has a big monkey on his back tho, he has the same amount of playoff wins as Chad Henne, and he has had a few chances . . . and unfortunately for him, that is what is defining him more than his regular season success. He'll have a chance this year to change that but you damn right if I could turn back the clocks I would have chosen Ryan, Rodgers and Brees.
Ryan Tannehill has been terrible for the last 10 quarters. Skill positions or not, he has made boneheaded mistakes and hasn't made plays when he needed to. He has 9 games under his belt, and he has flashed signs of brilliance but he most certainly has shown where has limited QB experience. Being a Dolphins fan, I'm certainly not betting the house that Tannehill is "the answer" but I think he's a guy that deserves the opportunity to get more games under his belt and for the love of god get some better skill players around him to succeed.
