In the future, however, the only people who might be using expletives when speaking of Tannehill are the coaches, players and fans of teams that Tannehill faces. They will be cursing because it's a good bet that Tannehill will be torching them.
To some, Tannehill is a polarizing figure, which always baffles. In speaking with five scouts about him, three thought he was a future Pro Bowler while two thought he'd be a bust. Again, baffling. To me, there is no better candidate for the next breakout quarterback. None.
"It's all a matter of what you make it," he said in an interview with CBSSports.com. "I have high expectations for myself, and I'm going to work to try and meet and exceed them."
The signs of a breakout Tannehill year are everywhere. There were too many interceptions last year, his rookie season, true, but there was steady, tangible growth. It was almost like watching him climb stairs. His mind worked better and better as the season went along.
