    Considering we're talking about a 2nd year QB who came out a year early with the least amount of experience, it's pretty impressive that he is even close to those other QB's statistically. The fact that he has an edge despite an OL as bad as last season's Arizona Cardinals really makes this absolutely amazing.

    Yes, he hasn't gotten his chemistry with Wallace yet. Yes, he isn't as impressive of a deep ball thrower as we would like yet. Yes, he has fumbled the ball too much. Yes, he still has rough edges. But there's no denying that the kid is impressive and improving. He's not the finished article, no, but he is the best QB prospect we have had in many years. So far, his star keeps ascending, and I'm very happy to have him here. He is a cornerstone upon which to build a franchise.

    RT was 28-42 for 310. Not bad vs. the best defense in the league.

    yeah i know score points.

    He needs a big time TE.

    On the topic of fumbles, how many fumbles has he had since McKinnie came into the lineup? I'm serious. 0? 1?

    He could have had a 2nd TD if Matthews holds on to that ball or if they call that blatent Helmet to Helmet. Also could have had a 2nd TD if Wallace catches that ball at the end of the game. Which most #1 recievers in the league have the ability to do.

    I would understand the sarcasm, if I wasnt reading a post about us being better off because Tannehill has better statistics than Qbs that are beating us...

    You need to look for progress. If there is no progress, that's a cause for concern.

    Personally, I see progress, so I remain bullish. I honestly don't think you can watch the way he played today and think that he hasn't improved his movement and feel of the pocket since even a couple of weeks into the season. I don't see how you can watch those deep throws to Wallace and think he hasn't improved on them today, when 3 of them were catchable.

    The one area I think he needs to work on next is his decision-making when he's scrambling to his right.
    Ok True... BUt he has won 10-12 battles. And has played very well the majority of the year despite the fact that he has had horrible protection, 0 running game, and a poor offensive coordinator. Tannehill seems to learn more every game. Rarely takes a step back. He has been very solid this year. Yes he should have had Wallace on 2 deep balls, but that part of their games will hopefully come once those 2 get on the same page. THey will have a lot of time to practice with one another and hopefully they spend time in the offseason working together again trying to get on that same page.

    I am very impressed with Tannehill and i think he has what it takes be a stud. Ever hear of a Sophmore slump? Well Tannehill didnt hit that slump. He has improved from his rookie season already, and i expect him to do the same in year 3.

    So your saying Tannehill has lost us all those games? Is it his fault that? Im not saying he is better then all those players, or that he didnt make mistakes in those games... It was just an interesting thing i looked up and posted it. Tannehill has outperformed his opponent 10-12 times. Do you not think that is something to applaud? Because i do.

    And it is no coincidence that we spoke glowingly of Tannehill's pocket-presence when he had Jake Long protecting his blind side, and are now encouraged when he has Bryant McKinnie protecting his blind side, but were unhappy with his pocket presence when Jonathan Martin was attempting to protect his blind side.

    Don Shula, like most successful NFL coaches, believed that when you have talent, you surround him with more talent. Sometimes it leads to lopsided teams, but when you have a QB, he absolutely needs a decent blindside OT.

    These QB vs QB stats in per game always humor me. Cause you know, QBs aren't playing against teams defenses, they are playing against the opposing QBs?? Lets make this even more simplistic - Ryan Tannehill is 12-15 as a starter. Is it fair I threw out that number from out of nowhere??

    Look.. I understand it depends a lot on the matchup and the defenses play a lot into it... I just think its a cool Stat. And BTW... Panthers are the number 1 defense and Tannehill put up 310 on them . Shoulda had 2 tds had Matthews held on or if Wallace catches that last second pass.

    But people are saying that Ryan blows... But he is putting up respectable stats with 0 line, 0 running game, and a bad offensive coordinator.
