Truth is, I've posted when the Dolphins have won this season. Why is this even relevant to what we're talking about anyway? (Cue the agenda post)
Apparently I'm not the only one noticing the trend. Lets just say you make a more of an effort to get here when they lose
Luck and Wilson started in the NFL at the same time as Tannehill. Unless you're willing to compare college starting experience to NFL starting experience, then that point is completely irrelevant.
Its not the same in comparison, but it is experience behind center, that Tanny does not have.
I wish that fact was more encouraging than it actually sounds.
If I would have told you Tanny would throw more Tds than Ints by something like 6 back in Aug. you would have been happy. Face it. You want a Tom Bradyish type Qb to step in & become a stud right off the bat.
BTW, the SB winning QB from last yr threw more Int than Tds this yr.
When it really mattered, he came up short. All Miami had to do was win 2 games against bad teams and they would get into the post-season. Tannehill was bad during that small stretch and that holds more weight than what he did earlier in the season.
Without his performance against the Pats, then this is a non issue.
Experience does not always equal performance. We can point to Chad Henne as an example of that.
Agree, but to simply point to Henne would be incorrect.
I'm OK with that. I wouldn't bat an eye if they drafted a QB in the first but in the 3rd is fine. The point is, he needs another talented guy in camp pushing him to play better.
Do not believe he needs someone to push him to play better. Believe he has that internally. However, a backup plan is not a bad thing.
No, but there is far greater sample size of Tannehill missing Wallace deep than his WR's dropping passes.
Its a trend with Tannehill, not his receivers.
50 yds throws are not easy & if Miami fans watched more than just Miami they would know that.
I think Wallace has received a bad rep (from myself at times) because he won't defy the laws of physics and stop on a dime (while running a 4.3 40 no less) and make a play on the ball. Even if hes at fault for that, I realize that he isn't that type of receiver. His job is to run past people and get open deep above anything else hes supposed to do. He is doing his job. Why isn't Tannehill under the same scrutiny for not being able to deliver the pass when hes open?
Because its 50 yds down field. That is not an easy pass. If you checked out the stats of down field passes, more than not are missed.
