    Schefter is totally 100% correct -
    Hope is not a strategy.

    Ryan is that you?

    Look, I don't understand why people just can't keep an open mind about opinions on RT17 open to debate (good nickname by the way) and why make silly comments like we don't know anything about football.

    No one on this board can predict whether RT17 will be a "rockstar" or another "Chad Henne" type of QB.

    I want RT17 to be the next coming of Marino and I get it may take some time, but thus far as the season wears on, he hasn't really shown any real big improvement.

    I'm not implying that Tannehill is Brady, but it's a lot easier to make those plays when it counts when you have play makers around you that can MAKE THOSE PLAYS WHEN IT COUNTS. Wes Welker stays open, Hernandez is a nightmare and Gronk is a MAN! come on dude, we don't have nothing close to that here. I agree that Great QB's can make people around him better but Tannehill isn't a great QB yet. He's a rookie with 19 college starts. He NEEDS help. This is football not tennis or golf.

But it fell on him and the team and fans would have had every right to kick him to the curb at that point, right?

    I know right? Crazy for him to state the facts, rather than ignoring them to fit one's dumbass agenda.

    This is getting silly!
    Where or who is our TY Hilton, Donnie Avery, Reggie Wayne, or Fleener, or the other rookie stud TE?
    Where or who is our Sidney Rice, Golden Tate, Doug Baldwin, Braylon Edwards or Zack Miller?
    Where or who is our Santana Moss, Pierre Garcon, or Leonard Hankerson?
    The only Rookie QB that we can maybe compare to RT is Weeden weeks 1-4. However they drafted Richardson, Travis Benjamin (from the U) and Josh Gordon (who we all wanted in the supplemental draft) to go along with Greg Little and Massiqoui (sp) to give him some nice weapons.

    RT has what we had last year at WR and TE minus Marshall. Hell had a weak WR core with Marhsall last year and now you take that away and what are you left with? Really think about this....Brian Hartline is our best WR!!!!! Brian Hartline, Really??? Bess is the next best reciever and both of these guys are under 5-9. Both guys struggle to separate from the cornors each game. So what do we do? Run the Ball with Reggie who by the way steps side to side before hitting the hole and then runs backwards every game for the last 6 games. So we tell our Rookie QB with 19 college starts to win the game for us and for the most part gets us withing a TD or less each week. You want to say a great QB makes others better...heres proof. What would have henne done with this group....Oh yeah, that's right we went 0-7!!

    Give the rooke guys that can run and catch the ball like the other guys have and lets see what happens then.

    Defend, Defend, Defend. But Schefter is More Knowledgable then Me and Most All on Finheaven Dude. The Classic argument - he has no weapons/playmakers. But Yet he has missed Throws and Cost us Games. We have Lost 5 of 6 and RT has looked Average since the Start of the Season. By the Way he missed a TD to Bess Yesterday and 2 Last Week to Hartline. He is allowed to be Judged. The NFL is a Win Now. I hope he is the Man, but he has not shown it Yet.

    Not Mentioning RG3, Luck, or Wlson. RT is not even in that Conversation But....
    Rookie QB's Philadelphia's Nick Foles and Washington's Kirk Cousins two rookie quarterbacks, added their name to the list on Sunday.Tannehill has been in those situations plenty this season - seven games now came down to fourth-quarter performance - and he's only delivered one victory in those critical, career defining situations in the fourth-quarter Dude.
