I really do think if he were to battle it out with T-Hill he would possibly win the starting job here. This isn't a knock on Tannehill because if Brady, Luck, Peyton, Rodgers and plenty more qb's were here, they would take his job also. Why the man crush for Tannehill? I know he inspires and gives you hope, but in no way am I satisfied by what I saw last season. He could improve...better yet...he must improve!
    Of course he needs to improve and I am by no means satisfied. I did see enough though, with what we had to help him with, to not go out there and draft another QB in the first 5 rounds or whatever lunacy is being spread in this thread. We got some serious holes to fill and I believe the QB one is filled for now. I would be furious if we used any of our picks in the first 5 rounds of this years draft. After that? I'd still be a little mad but I'd get over. I believe that a pick in the top 5 rounds would be a total indictment of RT by the coaching staff which doesn't exist currently. Based on what I've seen commented by our staff.

    And if it sounds like I have a man crush that is just me getting upset that there are a handful of people on this forum that don't see what everyone else is seeing. Or at least seeing enough to where we don't have to argue the QB position ad nauseam anymore. For at least a year or two lol..

Russell Wilson was oozing confidence on Sunday even as Seattle trailed big.

    Tannehill reminds me quite a bit of a golfer named Nick Watney, whose personality and facial expressions frequently show up as a topic on golf message boards. Talented but not altogether there, and you sense he's simply not assertive or greedy enough.
    You sound like Skip Bayless making assertions on someones demeanor and coming to completely false conclusions about his personality and yet, you know nothing about him. I hope you're not a Heat fan because you're doing the same thing people like that did and still do to Lebron. Questioning his mentality or whatever..

    It takes a lot to command a captains spot on a team and every teams situation is different. He will step into that role eventually if he wants to succeed in the NFL. But the fact that he took a back seat and wasn't grilling his teammates on mistakes or having cocky charisma, which is what you all seem to what, isn't a big deal because he's a ROOKIE. Sure some rookies step into that role right away but they are few and far between and you can't do comparisons because every rookie is going to a different situation.

    On here that Tanny is untouchable to some, he's the guy many have pegged their hopes on. I understand this but I also think it's prudent to protect ourselves, should he not be the saviour for the franchise. But even if you don't see it is even possible that scenario plays itself out at all, we need another QB anyway, Moore surely won't be resigned for his own good as much as anything else. So we need a replacement for #2 QB or promote Devlin to 2 and find a replacement for #3.
    As far as the draft goes, tbh, it's downright weak at QB, which makes it unlikely that you'll find a diamond in the rough in later round, so you have to draft on high but there are way too many holes on this team to even consider a QB in the first three rounds, unless someone like Barkley falls way beyond where they should and they would be huge value, for Barkley that would be 3rd round I think.

    Bull...as far as the Tanny supporters go,few or close to none thinks he walks on water,the problem is the Tanny haters bash Tanny like he is a 3rd year player and cant possibly know for sure he is a bust which makes them look clueless,and a majority of the Tanny supporters are defending him because we know he is a rookie and are doing the wait and see like one should in a 1st round draft pick QB.It's common sense that if a sleeper QB falls into our lap in the 3rd 4th or 5th pick we''d take him.This will happen to the end of time.The problem with that happening this year is will that Devlin will be better than any 4-7th rounder so its really a moot point.

    If by "bashing" you mean they point out he is a long way off from being Rogers,Brady or Wilson then yea...he is probably being bashed.

    Ill give the guy credit when he earns it...Win more reg season games than he loses,Win a playoff game or 3 & smell a super bowl.
    Till then? He is just a project holding up Pouncy's cup...

    True story and lol at the cup line...I'll judge him on at least throwing considerably more touchdowns than interceptions, win more games than he loses, makes plays and makes good decisions. I'm looking forward to him having competition in training camp and having success next season.

    You guys just don't get it. You are not allowed to criticize Teflon Tanny under ANY circumstance. 😜

    The resistance this thread has faced is pretty incredible. Either you believe in going all in on a single prospect or you choose to continually address the QB position until you're sure it's solved. Either way it's a conversation worth having. It's pretty ridiculous just firing shots at the dude who brings it up.

    Another one of these comments from 50 year old FinJim. I've said this before, but take a look at his posting history. 90% of the comments he makes are like this.

    BTW for those that don't know, he did this back in the day over Chad Henne as well. You said anything that challenged the great and almight Henne, you got these same immature responses.

    Russell Wilson may end up being the best QB in this draft class and that's just life. He's hands down the rookie of the year.

    All this weekend showed me is the Dolphins have NOTHING resembling any part of these playoff teams.
    I love how people are heralding the Seahawks roster now, when last year you didn't hear a peep.

    The difference was Russell Wilson on offense.
