* QB's develop quicker when the bullets are flying
* in the long run it is better to take your lumps now and have your quarterback grow sooner
* the fastest way for a quarterback to learn is to get thrown in and learn as he goes
* the more time a quarterback spends in real games the earlier he can develop
* for a young quarterback to grow into a quality starter he needs reps in game situations
* every quarterback develops at his own speed, but whatever that speed is, it is slower holding a clipboard
These are all just differentways to express what almost every kknowledgeable football person knows--young quarterbacks learn faster through playing. We can all debate about perspective, confidence, mentoring, coaching, habits, fear, etc. But, Tannehill isn't playing with fear, he isn't losing confidence, he isn't developing bad habits, and his teammates still believe in him. I can see no reasons not to keep playing him.
