    Tannehill is our franchise Q.B.

    Alot of discontent on the board regarding RT lately. The kid is great imo. He is athletic, smart as a whip and has a freakin' cannon. The rest of the offense except for Pouncey, Hartline as a #2 and Bess as a slot guy and Martin could be upgraded. The running game needs an upgrade. Thomas shows flashes but he fumbles, gets hurt and just isn't a big deal. Bush is not as good as 80% of the #1 backs in the league. Get RT ahead of the sticks, time to throw and 2 or 3 new targets to throw to it's a different world. Luck has 2 great tight ends, Reggie Wayne, T.Y. Hilton etc. RG3 has Morris at runningback, Santana Moss, Pierre Garcon etc. MUCH better weaponry to deploy than RT. Give RT a powerful running game ( draft a new runner like Eddie Lacey, I really want Duke Johnson but he's a Freshman) fill in a new guard and right tackle and add 2 recievers (draft Allen and add a bigtime guy in F.A) and finally a real big, fast monster tight end like a Vernon Davis type and this Q.B. will make you forget Pat White!!! Just seeing if you're paying attention!!! What I mean is he'll make us all proud. I've seen alot of Qbs in my day and I'm telling you guys, he is the real deal. Just my opinion and I'm sticking too it. There, I said it, I meant it and I'm here to represent it!

    I see plenty of ability and a ceiling that is large enough you have to expect he could improve with a full offseason as the starter and some retooling of the pieces and some weapons...

    Kid only played 19 games as a QB in college...if he was a total scrub he wouldn't have had ANY success this year

    will he reach his potential? I hope so, but a lot of that will depend on how he is developed and the pieces we acquire for him.

    Biggest concern has to be accuracy. Many of the balls he throws are not at all in the right spot (including passes the WR / TEs catch).

    Is accuracy a learned trait? Everything I have seen over the years, accuracy tends to be a god given trait and not one that is easily learned. This concerns me.

    The other big question mark is feel in the pocket. THill has been running a bit more the past couple of games but that has more been based on an internal clock vs. truly "feeling" guys around you. Every time Long or Martin or Garner get burned, I'm expecting a big hit sack to go with a probable fumble. You see other elite QB's move very well in the pocket and feel when a guy is on their back. Brady, Peyton, Rodgers, Brees. This is the type of QB I want to develop. Luck already has that feel, you saw it in the game we played against the Colts. I don't see that with Ryan. I also don't see that with the Flacco's, Matt Ryan's, of the world. These guys just have unbelieveable weapons and elite raw skills (throwing, accuracy, etc.). The big question is which will THill end up becoming. One of the elite's, One of the solid QBs you need to put talent around, or will he be a bust.

    On to the THill positives.

    Good arm strength
    Somewhat quick release
    VERY athletic
    Has some speed to get away from defenders chasing him down
    Intelligent

    Hopefully a combination of these talents along with the ability to learn one or both of his lacking traits will put him in the elite category and get this team to the promised land.

    Pastor stands up in Church from the pulpit and asks the congregation if they know what the resurrection is about? Small child in a pew puts his hands up and would like to answer, pastor asks the child to answer, Boy says "If the resurrection persists over 4 hours you have to call a doctor"

    Arrow was pointing up after his clutch performance against the Seahawks. We all expected ups and downs from Tannehill as a rookie.

    How was leading three 4th quarter scoring drives, including setting up the game winning FG lucky?
