    CBS Mike Freeman: Tannehill could emerge as the next great quarterback star

    http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/blog/mi...arterback-star

    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.
    Wallace believes Tannehill could be just as talented as Ben Roethlisberger. Those are huge words since Roethlisberger is, well, a huge figure in the NFL. But again, this isn't totally insane.
    What the Dolphins have to do is make sure Tannehill has weapons as well. What Tannehill has to do is cut down the turnovers. My belief is we'll see an Eli Manning-type of transition for Tannehill. Actually, Eli is a better comparison than Roethlisberger in some ways. As Manning got more comfortable, his play improved exponentially. I see the same happening with Tannehill.

    Oh please let it be so. I am soooooo tired as a Fins fan. This offseason and seeing Tannehill last year has given me hope, I dont know how many more letdowns I can take. The 2002 season when Ricky ran for 1853 almost killed me.

    Ryan Tannehill will be great, if "we" allow him to be.

    No high expectations = No letdown

    Cautious hope and optimism = Pleasant surprises

    Let him come into his own at his own pace, and don't go jumping off a cliff if it's not this year.

    Why do they say "too many interceptions"? 13 is not a lot at all tbh.

    TD/INT ratio is what he should've used IMO...

    And several of those were deflections/tipped passes, which isn't necessarily a good thing but it's not as if they were mis-reads or poor throws.

    CBS Mike Freeman: Tannehill could emerge as the next great quarterback star

    Physical tools + Mental Awareness + Heart = A Winning QB (RT17 seems to look the part)
    The superior man blames himself. The inferior man blames others.


    The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will.
