way too early to make any determinations, many young QBs are having success right away but that doesn't mean all will have success right away. It's so silly how quickly people praise and give up on players/teams/coaches/etc...
The less intellegents interpret the comparison as: Peyton Mannig had a bad rookie season, therefore anybody that has a bad rookie season is another Peyton Manning.
tannehill has sucked since indy??? lmao...WHAT
he lead a come from behind in the 4th quarter and passed for the game tying td and game winning field goal drive against seattle...
hoops scoops 2012 season ..."in 2014 ryan tannehill etches his name in stone amongst the games elite qbs"..."ryan tannehill and andrew luck will carry the afc for the next decade plus the way peyton manning and tom brady have this last decade plus"
I understand his point of view, I truly do, it isn't a wrong point of view it is just the point of view we all want to be wrong. Tannehill does have to improve, fact. Tannehill does need to continue to play mistake free football. Tannehill does need to lead the team. With all that said I'm not ready to question this kids ability yet, no way, not with this team around him.
It helps that RGIII has a rushing attack that opens up all kinds of opportunity and oh by the way so does Seattle. I mean Marshawn Lynch and Alfred Morris are 2nd and 4th in the league, if you add that amount of production to Miami's running game it takes the pressure off all kinds of things. RGIII has basically the same numbers as Miami's leading rusher!
I find it funny that the two most balanced teams in terms of offense are also the two rookie QB's who are accelerating off the charts right now, it isn't Luck, it isn't Weeden and Tannehill, it is RGIII and Wilson sitting there at 1st and 7th in terms of QB rating. You know why Luck, Weeden and Tannehill are sitting down there at the bottom at 31st, 32nd and 33rd? Because their teams were absolutely terrible last year, Indy was horrible, Cleveland is worse than us and Miami has been devoid of rosterable talent for years. All of this years rookie class is doing a fabulous job given the mess they all walked into but if you look at the 10,000 feet point of view the two making the least amount of mistakes arguably had the best teams on paper.
The guys writing about this **** are the same guys who said Miami would be lucky to win 3 games and Tannehill should sit to gain experience because of his lack of College play, now after 3/4 of the season Tannehill is a bust, a bum. What a society of ADD media we live in, let's write about giving the kid time to play and learn not more than six months ago only to crucify him now in the papers. I guess the Texans played Tom Brady better last night on a national stage then Miami did a week prior.
Bunch of ****ing mindless poppycock is what it all is.
