The one thing that has helped me keep my faith in RT is the final drive versus Seattle. We need a quarterback that can play well and do that for us consistently.
Tannehill is going to be good for us. If we bring him a big time receiver (Wallace, Jennings, Fitzgerald-type receivers), it'll only make his job that much easier.
Be afraid, Brady. Be very afraid!
-Dan MarinoI just try to be myself, whatever that is. I don't think about how I'll be remembered. I just want to be consistent over a long period of time. That's what the great players do.
as much as i think matt moore could have came in and balled out this year and threw over 20 TDs and got us to the playoffs, i think tannehill starting from day 1 was the right move. you dont draft a top 10 Qb to sit him imo. my only problem now is going to be watching matt moore go to the jets or bills next year and start. he wants that opportunity. the jets could start him. the bills would love a cheaper contract and not to have to draft a QB
It's much better to get this kind of feedback from somebody who actually played the position.
If he's gonna be a rock star....heck with all this nickname talk....we need a name for the band!
How about "Ryan and the Blowphish" or "Led Tannelin"
Tannehill himself has to improve, but obviously you want to give him as many opportunities to do so.
It's very important to not get all caught up in the blame game and what that means for our team. Tannehill made a poor couple of throws that directly took points off the board - yes, but with better playmakers, there will be more of those opportunities, opportunities that I genuinely feel Tannehill will hit more often then not.
How about "T-T-T Tanny and the Jests"? If Ricky was still on the team, we could have "Tanny and the Coral Reefers". Or if he does a duet with Philbin, we could have "The Captain and Tannyll".<-That's my favorite
If we had some field stretching options for him I believe strongly that his TD numbers would be a bit higher. Look at some of the good teams with QB's like Schaub and Ryan.......My opinion is that RT is every bit the level of ability of these guys. Maybe not at the moment but let's be honest, with the weapons these guys have they are able to do a lot more. It gets stated a lot but it is by no means understated that we need weapons for him. I believe that with literally only ONE Mike Wallace type guy things have a whole different outcome. Tannehill is good enough, better than Moore and I believe Moore is quality.
