I am not joining an angry mob about this article but espn can do better than schefter.
I thought Tannehill was ok yesterday, but he doesn't really make the elite throws.
However, last week, he was very subpar and may very well have cost us the game. So he was worse than a game manager.
He has the tools, but I wonder about the "it" factor.
My fiance is a physician and not really a football fan other than just watching while I do. Her random observation was that Tannehill is a gentleman and looks like a med student (she loves that he majored in biology). But she doesn't see the "cut your throat" attitude that the great qb's have. Problem being he is a "gentleman."
You gotta love the 6'4, the footwork, the good arm, etc. I'm not sure if he is true gym rat but supposedly he stays late. The question is, will he improve his accuracy, make some elite throws, and win games. He hasn't been good on 3rd down or in the 4th quarter. He has gotta get that "it factor" up and be a winner.
Cant say I disagree with Schefter. We just dont know yet. Thats all he is saying.
He's not performing as well as Luck, Griffin or Wilson, regardless of supporting cast. That's a simple fact.
Let's put it this way: Trent Dilfer, who played the position in the league for over a decade and won a SB, and who has since become one of the more respected analysts around when it comes to breaking down QB play, thinks Tannehill will be a 'rock star', to use Dilfer's words. I'll go with that educated opinion, formed after studying the tape, with the professional credentials to back it up, before I'll go with the opinion of a guy who once threw a football growing up on Long Island.
Die hard Dolphins and Devils fan.
