[QUOTE=TheWarriorFins;1064519869]That's not an excuse to not be patient with a rookie QB
I dont see washinton being forced to be patient with RG3...I dont see the colts being forced to be patient with luck...just saying...
Why you don't understand that, I don't know. But it goes to show your inability to understand the difference between all the other rookie QBs and Tannehill. Tannehill was raw when he was drafted. EVERYONE knew that, but did you?
Last week at this time everyone was in love with Tannehill. Now you have fans and even some local sports writers bashing him and calling for his head. I really hate the bipolar actions of people from week to week. He is a rookie who is going through normal ups and downs, don't anoint him or write him off just yet. Forget what Luck and RGIII are doing right now, they were more pro ready and have better offensive weapons. All quarterbacks develop at different speeds and just because Luck and RGIII are doing better now doesn't mean they will be better in the long run.
I said when he was drafted that i didnt think we would draft him just because ross said draft a qb...i didnt think that sherman would let people draft someone that couldnt make it...But i still thought taking a RAW qb was dumb especially top 10...Mark sanchez should be proof enough of that...
also im not necessarily taking it out on tannehill...the problem is the rest of the team and the front office...we have a team that traded away one of the best receivers in the game for 2 3rds...i dont care what type of player and personality you want, thats a bad trade...I dont have confidence in the front office to put the correct people on the field to help him...the smartest off season move this year was to dump vonte, and an even smarter one would have been to try and trade long, now ww get NOTHING FOR HIM because our front office isnt smart enough to see what we dont have (egos getting in the way)...ive said it before, if ross wants to use his money and help this team, go to green bay and tell evey scout and front office person he will pay them more to come to miami...
anyways this thread was about who you would take over tannehill right now...if we could make a madden trade who would you take...i answered...and i would take 15 people over tannehill today...maybe in 3 years it will be different...but god i hope we dont have to draft another qb in 3 years...
