    He didn't turn the ball over against an incredible D so I'll buy that he didn't play badly, but it's a stretch to call it good when he was wildly inaccurate and barring a miraculous catch by Fasano would have been held out of the endzone. I'm tired of these incredibly low standards ya'll set for our team.

    Sooo your not even willing to give him credit for putting the ball where it needed to be?

    He did OK today. I actually think he showed some progress.

    I didn't see him miss any wide open guys on bad throws. The throw to Matthews could have been completed but that certainly wasn't a gimme. And Moore dropped a deep ball.
    I agree with you. Also, to me he hasn't been the same since he was knocked out of the game against the Jets. Not sure if he is being more tentative or if the injury was lingering for a few games afterward, but he is definitely moving around, scrambling and trying to create plays more the last 2 games like he was before he got injured.

    How about the two deep balls to Moore and the one that everyone is complaining about to Bess? Those were both balls that a playmaker WR makes. You think Andre Johnson or Calvin Johnson or Mike Wallace or.....etc, etc......would miss those opportunities? 9 times out of 10 these guys make those spectacular catches and take it to the house. NONE of out WRs can do that. On the deep ball to Hartline that was completed to him wide open in the 2nd qtr (I think), he reall only had one defender to make miss and he couldn't do it. I miss Brandon Marshall.
    The future of the Miami Dolphins offense!!!!

    From left to right...Michael Egnew, Lamar Miller, and Ryan Tannehill.

    Low standards are set because the team isn't very good. You have to have some kind of context. It's a ****ty football team. Trust me, standards will be much higher next season, I can guarantee you that.

    I see Luck, RG III and Wilson making big plays downfield when their receivers are wide open.
    I saw Tannehill throwing to receivers that were blanketed by guys in red jerseys. There just isn't any separation. Even when he tried to extend plays with his legs there was no one open.
    If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.

    What I am missing with Tannehill are the intangibles which can not be taught. The understanding when and where to throw the ball and when and how to run. He is missing the natural ability to feel the QB position. The last throw was such an indicator. On 4th down you don't throw the ball away. You have to force a play. You throw it anywhere where you can see a while jersey even if the ball is intercepted. If your play breaks down on 4th and 10 with time running out you have to have the will to just force it. Throwing it away like it is a 1st down with 5 minutes played is just giving it up and surrendering.

    There were a few situations where he should run it. One instance was when he threw to Clay for 3 yards though Clay had a man draped on him. It was clear that the ball is either incomplete or Clay catches it for 3 yards yet on the inside was a running lane where he could have picked up 5 yards and more.

    Tannehill can make all the throws no doubt but it seems like he does not have the feel for the position. Lack of certain uncoachable intangibles can be masked by weak competition in college. But in the NFL it is exposed by much better talent on opposing defenses. There has been many great college QBs even Heisman winners who never made it in the NFL because they were missing the uncoachable tools of a QB.

    The excuse that he is a rookie does not fly anymore. And while we have a lack of talent on offense the fact that our slow receivers do get open and are still missed by Tannehill is an indicator that Tannehill has to bear a heavy load of the problems. He even has problems on the short to medium routes.

    The question is how long do some of you give him the label "he is a rookie". How often is the excuse he started only 19 games in college being used as an excuse while Sanchez is being mocked for only starting 16 college games? At what point is Tannehill made responsible for any of our offensive woes?

    We have problems all over the place from the GM down to our coaching staff (which at this point I put in the bottom of the league right above Rex and Chan) and all the way to our players. But it can not be that we have 50 players who suck yet Tannehill walks on water. So at what point is he bearing any responsibility?

    I do think Tannehill will be a great QB, with some more experience and weapons surrounding him.
    Thank you! Smartest post yet
