Everyone is underestimating tAnnehill, man didn't he throw for over 3k without legitimate weapons, and first yr starter. I think this kid is going to succeed. Is he the next Marino of course not. There will never be another Marino. But tannehill will be damn good. Sit back and enjoy this kid growing right be4 your eyes.
Curiosity, did anyone see Gannon doing what he did in 02 after 15 years in the league?
Contending is for people who are ok with losing. I do not want to contend, I want to dominate.
"Because they wouldn't let me go for 3".
Woody Hayes describing why he went for 2, late in a game with Michigan while up 40 points.
I said that it was unfair comparing Rodgers to Tanny b.c Rodgers SAT on the bench for 3 years and took 2 years to become great. AND that Tanny started right out of the box with little college experience. And that he would probably have a Super Bowl at a point in his career before Rodgers did, in other words, INCLUDING those three years sitting on the bench -- they were part of the argument from the beginning -- undeniable part of Rodgers CAREER. It took Rogers 6 years to get a SB. And this with all the college experience he had...
Ipso facto: Tanny ain't Rodgers. Right now, at this point in both of their respective careers, he's BETTER. And chances are he will have a SB SOONER than Rodgers did.
End of argument. It's no wonder you don't bet on boards IF what you throw out there is not worth backing up, lol.
Again, I am NOT taking a shot at Tannehill. I think he can be a good QB but by comparing him to Gannon at his peak, to Rodgers in any way just isn't fair.
How is he better than Rodgers? b/c Rodgers didn't play? so this means you think he will be better? I guess he was better than tom Brady through 1 year too, will he now win 4 SBs or more? Imagine what you guys will think when he throws more TDs than INts and gets you in a playoff race?
I am saving you money, you should be thanking me.
Junc, I wouldn't get my hopes up TOO HIGH with Geno Smith, the guy has a serious accuracy problem. buttfumble could never read defenses or protect the ball and now your team drafts a guy in a BAD QB Draft you misses all to often down field. He's not in Tannehill's class even with starting most of his college career. Tannehill started only 19 games at QB in College and is still better than buttfumble or Smith at this point of his young career and the main reason is, he can read a defense.
Maybe I take Rivers over buttfumble but I wouldn't use him as some example who's obviously much better. Turnovers lose games and both buttfumble and Rivers have been equally as good at committing turnovers lately.
I'm not sold on tannehill either, I think he has potential to be a good QB but he has a lot of work to do and buttfumble as a rookie is comparable to Tannehill as a rookie w/ the exception that buttfumble playe din and played well in big games. The good news is Miami is surrounding Ryan w/ talent, the Jets did that early then it eroded as did his play. Hopefully for you guys you keep him surrounded w/ talent.
I have never said he would be great but I know you can win with him w/ the right talent so that is where my frustration is w/ the Jets.
By the way, my quotes from that post were after the 2010 season. He was 2 years in, had a really good 2010 and helped us get to 2 title games. Obviously things have changed the last 2 years.
Thank you for a fair post.
[QUOTE=nyjunc;1064682659]I don't think you realize hos good Gannon was from about '99-'02. I am not knocking Tannehill but I don't see that ceiling for him. gannon was a 2 time all pro(not pro bowl, all pro). He was as good as anyone in the NFL for a few year stretch. I see Ryan;s ceiling as a bottom of the top 10 type of guy which is a guy you can win big with but I don't see him as an elite QB.[COLOR="Silver"]
Are you really serious? A few years ago, you thought buttfumble who had/has a career 70 rating was ELITE, yet you can not see Tannehill ever being Elite.....even though his 1st year was better then any buttfumble had, and with less receiving talent then buttfumble had at his disposal.
My personal Draft:
1st Round: C. J Mosley(ILB)
2nd Round: Joel Bitonio(T)
3rd Round: C. J. Fiedorowicz(TE)
4th Round: Dakota Dozier (T/G)
