    OPINION Gillette No Debate Question: Which Player Performed Against All The Odds?


    "........As for the Dolphins' player who performed against all odds, I have two answers. The first is rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Like Wilson, Tannehill was expected to sit this year, even though he had the advantage of being picked in the first round, and he is 6',4". According to the media, the Dolphins came into the year expected to completely fail. They had no weapons and would not win more than three games.Yet, the Dolphins went 7-9 under Tannehill, the first Dolphins rookie quarterback to start all 16 games for the franchise, and the rookie played well. He was overshadowed all season by first overall pick Andrew Luck and second overall pick Robert Griffin III, as well as Wilson, but Tannehill's performance was not bad, including setting several franchise rookie records.Tannehill's season stats were 282-for-484 (58.3%), 3,294 yards, 12 touchdowns, 13 interceptions, 76.1 passer rating, 29 rushes, 211 yards, 2 touchdowns.I will also say wide receiver Brian Hartline beat the odd this year. With the Dolphins coming into the season with the "worst receiving corps in the NFL" Hartline emerged as the only threat the Dolphins had in the passing game. With opposing defenses actively game planning to keep Hartline out of the Miami passing game, the veteran wide out still caught a career high 74 passes for a career high 1,083. He only found the end zone once on the year, but he clearly out played any expectations of the Dolphins wide receivers............"
