    How Much Money Would You Bet on Ryan Tannehill's Becoming Successful?

    By "successful" I mean having a QB rating that stays consistently at 90 or above.

    How is 90 an objective sign of success?

    Marino had a career QB rating around 86. And he was the best QB that many of us have seen play -- ever.

    Now you set up Tanny. You say that unless he rates better than Marino then he's not a success?

    Right. RT is making plays in Miami that haven't been seen from the QB position since -- well, since Dan the Man.

    Give it some time.

    And some decent talent around him

    Of course you're free to incorporate all of that into your own personal estimation of his likelihood of attaining the level of play described in the original post, and into your vote in the poll, as well, should you choose to cast one.

    I'll bet your membership on this forum.
    I just try to be myself, whatever that is. I don't think about how I'll be remembered. I just want to be consistent over a long period of time. That's what the great players do.

    Funny, you can make me a non-member in "your" forum, regardless of how well Ryan Tannehill performs, by putting me on your ignore list.

    I did the same for you long ago.

    Cool, thanks. I'm honored that your took time to respond Must be nice to put a person on your ignore list when they don't agree with your opinions. Must be a long list, huh?

    Seriously, though...I'm taking the wait and see approach. I'm not saying he's our franchise QB and I'm not saying he's a bust as some people here would declare. I would love to see how successful he could be if we had a semi decent offensive line and a number one receiver who doesn't drop the ball half time. Of course, Ryan isn't without his faults as well (gotta improve the pocket awareness for one), but he's shown on numerous occasions that he's well worth that number 8 pick (see week 3).

    Honestly, I'm not going to bet any money on a first or 2nd year QB unless he's a sure thing and there aren't too many out there right now. Andrew Luck might be the only guy I can say with some certainty that he'll a franchise QB, but even he has things to work on.

    Nothing to do with Tannehills ability but I would never bet on an individual to do anything. As a Dolphin fan however I feel we have our franchise QB for years to come and although many aren't happy he has not become the equivalent of Manning or Brees (both of which Tannehill is further along in development at this part in his career than they were in theirs) I look forward to the next couple of years and watching him grow into that role.

    Not sure he will ever reach his potential with Sherman as OC and a QB coach (Z.Taylor) with ZERO experience.
