    Likewise it's predictably funny how the cacophony of "Usual Suspects" who eagerly chimed in to criticise or dismissthe opinion of Trent Dilfer, a decent analyst and SB winning QB for calling RT17 a "rock star" are now salivating over the opinion of a journalism major from suburban NYC who possibly never played a down of competitive football in his life. Go figure

    Come on man you're better than this. Football is a team game and any one player is ONLY as good as the talent around him. On this team, the QB has to be PERFECT and he's not that and will never will be. To complete that throw in the 4th qtr to bess he would have had to drop the ball in a tight window over the corner and in front of the safety in order for a short 5'10" bess to make a play on it. If he threw that very same pass to a calvin johnson or larry fitzgerald they both make a play on that ball. Brady has a 6'7 tight end to throw to, who on our team even comes close to that. Come on man.

    funny how BAD colts were last year and how GOOD this year. ****ing owner is a genius who played the broken system to perfection while our moron coachs plays the coach search with flaws but not on a franchise QB.

    We ****ed up BIIIIIG time wiht that BS stunt of winning useless games last year.

    All we can do is HOPE RT with some good WR is a good QB that can make us win playoff games if otherwise say hello to another 5 years of crap becasue we wont drfat another QB for at least 2 more years.

    I'm watching the game rewind. Before the season started on "Hard Knocks" Ireland is quoted saying the Dolphins receivers were 4's, 5's, and 6's. Hes right.

    Quite frankly the 49ers DB have better deep ball skills the the Miami WRs.

    Ugh. ugly game

    I'm praying that Tannehill will be a great QB but when the game is on the line, he chokes. He doesn't have the "It factor" the other rookie QBs have. Hell, even Kirk Cousins led a come from behind drive to score a TD and 2pt conversion against the Ravens to tie and win in O.T. Tannehill has had numerous opportunities for winning games against the Jets and Cardinals in back to back weeks, the Colts, the Bills, the Pats, and even the 49ers this week. What did he do??? Nothing but incompletions and interceptions. I know we dont have a #1 WR and hartline probably shouldn't be the #2 WR but damn. Make some plays for once and the media will get off his back.

    I'll compare Tannehill to Brady once Tannehill can stand in the pocket like a statue for 5 seconds without any d-lineman close to touching him. Lack of serious protection and a suspect supporting cast are hurting his progression. So he misses a few throws, give a me a QB who doesn't. The roster needs a lot of work and Tannehill will benefit if the right choices are made.

    The lack of patience on this board is hard to stomach sometimes.

    Is this the same Adam Schefter that said he was 90% sure we were getting Jeff Fisher even though we had no chance at the veteran coach?
    Is this the same Adam Schefter that said Brian Schottenheimer was on our short list?
    Is this the same Adam Schefter that thought he had breaking news about Sean Payton being a FA coach that turned out to be false?
    Is this the same Adam Schefter that just wrote in his Ten Spot article that said the were in trouble because Jake Long was going to have to hit the open market?

    Blah, blah, blah. I noticed how he left out the strong Seattle game he had.

    I have said it once, I will say it again: Ryan Tannehill will have ups and downs. He will develop at his own pace.

    Read the wisdom of Trent Dilfer for the proper take on what to look for in a QB as opposed to some rumor peddler like Adam Schefter.

    Not sure if you're being sarcastic here or what, but Russell Wilson's weapons are Marshawn Lynch, Golden Tate, Sidney Rice and Doug Baldwin all of whom are significant upgrades over our any of current starters. I'm very sure that if Russell Wilson were here he wouldn't nearly have the success he's had in Seattle, and he'd be running a lot more trying to make a play himself (which he's admittedly better at than Tannehill).

    Having said that, I have to agree that Tanny really hasn't demonstrated the improvement we've hoped for over the last 5 weeks, given the potential we saw in the first 5. At the beginning of the season, we'd see his poise, his arm and his great throws, and they would offset his few inaccurate ones. We'd say "Oh, just a few bad throws - but you have to expect that from a rookie." Trouble is it's not getting better - it might actually be getting worse as the season progresses. I hope (and think) it will get better, but there is a long list of failed QB's whose tendency to make a few bad throws every game doomed their careers.
