First and foremost, you're wrong.
I wrote my post straight of memory , with regard to Drew Bledsoe and Tom Brady. It's obvious what I wrote and all my opinions are not all in that article (how could they be), but I have an excellent memory, and add my opinions to the post.
What I know is, the fans in New England were split and upset Bledsoe was benched. (Brady was something like a 3rd round pick, if not lower.)
Don't sit & tell everyone what an excellent memory after you have been quoted stating "Marino was bench." Marino was NEVER
Not knowing what Rd. Brady was drafted. He was a 6th Rd. pick.
I'm sure in your small circle of friends some were upset. That does not make me wrong. The fans that were mostly likely upset were what I call fly by fans. Fans who pay little attention & only remember names. Fans that knew Bledsoe lead the team to the SB in '96, but paid little attention to his play afterwards.Its obvious your memory is not nearly as good as you would like for us to believe it is.
If it had happened here, in Miami, I am sure most on here would have said, Bledsoe is still learning on the job and deserves it, give him 3,4,5 years, a better back, a better OL, better DL and so on, and you're are so wrong, in my opinion.
Bledsoe was 29 Yrs old at the time & a 9 Yr vet with declining skills at this time Brady took over when Bledsoe was injured.
Little different from a 25 yr old 2nd yr vet.
All I am trying to convince you of is, don't try to force me with Chad Henne or Ryan Tannehill, when Matt Moore or Pat Devlin or another QB would have gotten us into to the playoffs, in my opinion, and achieved the same or better results .
Its your opinion based on nothing but its your opinion. Have either one of them ever lead a team to the playoffs that would provide some basis that they could?
I feel we overreached taking Tannehill at the # 8 position, when we could have nabbed Ryan Mallet and started Matt Moore and let the process begin and developed this team .
Preaching to the choir on reaching for Tanny. I'm on record saying so. Many times.
Ryan Mallet? Jury is still out on if he can even play in the league. Off field issue were his downfall. He went to the best spot for him to go to.
I'm Leaving out Nick Foles and Kirk Cousins, from drafting Ryan Mallet, because I did not have either of them on my radar screen, but seriously, you don't draft someone # 1 and expect him to be great out of the gate.
You are hind-sighting this. No one knew Foles would play like he has. Cousins has been good, but so far nothing special.
I predict in 3-4 years, Tannehill will be gone. I said the same thing about Henne, Fiedler and Ronnie Brown.
Good for you. Tanny may be gone. Only time will tell.
Today's NFL, you have to produce early or your gone.
Its why many players end up being better for their 2nd team.
