I Don't Play . .That's Y I Failed P.E.
Claiming Tannehill is somebody we should give up on is probably the most idiotic thing I have heard all year.
However those who think he's the future franchise guy need to slow down as well . . . too early to tell either way.
Truth is, you can look at your GM and coach for getting rid of Brandon Marshall and specifically your GM for just not having the best eye for talent when it comes to the skill positions. He likes the cheap way out and the only time he went for it was on a guy who has trouble follow him and he lost value on a trade and he addresses the QB position after that weapon is gone. Now we expect our QB to make miracles happen with Davone Bess streaking down the middle and Brian Hartline on the sidelines and Marlon Moore and Rishard Matthews going deep. An OC who decides Sunday was the day to start thinking about Reggie in the passing game when some of us having been screaming to do so the entire year. The fact that you can bench Reggie Bush for a whole half because you think he's only good for running the ball and you can replace him with Daniel Thomas is idiotic on so many levels. Reggie should be in the game almost every snap . . . if not behind center, lined up in the slot to create a mismatch.
Tannehill has been far from perfect and he has had chances to make things happen and he has flat out missed . . . sure they were difficult passes but lets not make it seem like they were impossible . . . big time players make big plays and Tannehill hasn't made enough of them either. Sure he has limited help, but he hasn't been great this year and I wouldn't expect him to be.
The notion that somebody comes out and questions "Tannehill may not be the answer for the Dolphins" is down right idiotic. Sure he may not "be the answer" over time, but nothing this year has shown me that my grade on him is more sour than it was when he was drafted. Even factoring the worst I have seen of RT, he has performed better than I expected and I have high hopes for the kid. Whether he lives up to him is another story but giving up on RT at this moment is very premature.
I do think Pat Devlin is a great fit for the west coast offense and could be a great fit in this offense . . . that is up for the coaches to figure out but Tannehill has the goods, he just needs to put in the work this offseason and improve.
