Now I am become coach, the destroyer of teams.
People are claiming how irrational this board has become after a few loses but what i feel is as equally irrational is saying that now a majority of finheaven is anti tannehill. I think that is an extreme exaggeration. Out of the thousands of posters we have here please tell me these myriad of posters who are proclaiming Tanny is a complete bust. Maybe im wrong but to me its only been a small handful and its usually by people who have deemed him a bust since day one.
In fact it seems that there are more pro-ireland people than tannehill is a bust people which i find completely baffling
One thing about the Patriots is that they do a really good job gameplanning against a flawed Offense. Not saying anything good about Tebow, but they were the first team to put together a plan to slow him down when they got on a roll last year. Then the Steelers arrogantly did not use the plan and lost in the playoffs, only to see the Pats use it again and destroy the Donks in the Dvisional game. If you have watched the Colts this year Wayne has been put all over the place to really help Luck. Wayne is huge for Luck because he is such a comfort level for a rookie QB plus he takes a lot of the other players to constantly win single cover matchups. I am not surprised that the Pats did this because they can put together a plan, just have a hard time executing it against more mature QBS. Tannehill may not be Luck but that is not the end of the world. Hopefully we can find him a few weapons because he does seem to have a lot of natural attributes that play well in this league.
6 TD passes, 11 interceptions, 70.8 QB rating, 30th ranked QB in the league, 5 of the 10 games he has posted 50.4 QB rating or lower. Miami has scored 10, 35, 20, 21, 17, 17, 20, 3, and 14 points with him as QB (35 against Oakland had to do with Reggie Bush)...17.4 ppg.
Seriously, let those sink in for just a minute.
The difference is I refer to facts to SUPPORT why I think Tannehill has NOT EARNED the accolades given to him.
Whereas yourself and others don't include facts b/c you have NONE to support your position. So what is offered instead are excuses, excuses, excuses, excuses...and treat them like facts.
BTW I have been totally OPEN to Tannehill proving my suspicions wrong. After the Rams game I was complimentary of him. Of course, then came the next 4 games.
Both sides of the argument around Tannehill are valid at this point and as I pointed out in a separate thread the difference is entitlement verse earned credit. I can understand why people would say they are not on the Tannehill wagon yet, I clearly understand their point of view, it has to do with earned credibility. Prove to me that you are deserving of me being on your wagon and I will hop on. That point of view is absolutely fine but you have to give the kid time to prove himself and 10 NFL starts is not enough time to prove anything, at least not in my eyes.
Now we have the other side of the coin, the side I am on along with 3/4 of the site and Miami fans in general, entitlement. Tannehill is going to bring the franchise to greatness again and I am on his wagon until he proves I need to hop off. 10 games isn't a large enough body of work to prove to me that I need to hop off so I will bide my time.
The two thing that both sides of the argument have in common are the collective body of work and the lack of sample size to prove either way which side is right at the moment and both sides want to be on Tannehill's wagon at some point.
"Martining" things is no way to go through life.
Don't be a Martin.
