    Tannehill vs buttfumble supporting cast?

    I know buttfumble sucks, but we always hear about how he's never been surrounded by any talent. How has his supporting cast been any worse than what Tannehill has now?

    Jets
    WR - Holmes, Kerley, Edwards, and their 2nd round pick Hill
    RB - Greene, McKnight, Powell
    TE - Keller

    Dolphins
    WR - Hartline, Bess, bunch of scrubs
    RB - Bush, Thomas, Miller (who's barely played)
    TE - Fasano

    I know Holmes and Keller have been out for much of this year, but buttfumble sucked last year too when he had them for the full season. And he's always had a pretty solid O-line w/ Ferguson, Mangold, and Moore. I'd say that Tannehill's supporting cast is just as bad if not worse, yet he's playing way better than buttfumble. Maybe Tannehill should get more credit for his play with such a weak offensive squad.

    Eh. To be honest, does it really matter. buttfumble probably just played his last career game as a starting qb in the nfl and Tannys career is just starting. One is a first round bust and one is a rookie who's book has yet to be written

    buttfumble is the worst QB in the NFL. Supporting cast doesn't matter when you are as inept as buttfumble

    When healthy there's substantially more talent on that jests O, but it doesn't matter with buttfumble. His ineptitude might ruin Hill's promising career. Stick buttfumble on Arizona and he'd waste Fitzgerald as thoroughly as a Skelton or Lindley does. Because that's the quality of QB he is: ****.

    buttfumble flourished because his defense was lights out. You cannot discount the effect of Ladanian Tomlinson, Braylon Edwards, Holmes, Keller, etc. That is a pretty decent cast even with LT being on the downside of his career. Miami has never had close to that offensively in the past decade.

    Many knew it was a huge reach when the jets traded up to draft him. However his early success because of the defense hid his inadequacies. Now that the defense sucks, he is being forced to be a real qb and win games that he never had to in the past and couldn't anyway.

    I wonder if Sparano brought out the air horn in training camp. Did Henne wonders...

    he was drafted way too high to begin with.
    In his office Friday afternoon, Philbin pointed to the practice fields outside and said: "Out there is where we're going to find out about Ryan Tannehill, Matt Moore and David Garrard. I don't remember a master plan that said, 'Here's when Ryan's going to play.' If there is one, I was never told about it. We'll let them come to work, and the best man will win."'

    If this ends up being true, he is about to become the highest paid backup in the league. His 2013 cap hit for the Jets is going to be around $13 million. They will have a cap hit of $17 million if they cut him.

    Pete Carroll knew what he was talking about when he declared Taco not ready for prime time.
