I think he deserved a chance, I placed him higher than Moore, because Moore looked bad or mad during preseason. Let's face it Matt Moore was screwed over by Coach Philbin.
Moore resigned with Miami. He was free to go elsewhere, but choose to be the back up in Miami. Not sure how you think Philben screwed him over.
If I recall, Pat Devlin was regarded as one of the top ten quarterbacks entering the draft and was shocked he was not drafted..
If memory is serving me correct. He is believed to not possess an NFL starting Qb arm strength.
I hate with so much passion, that we didn't try Devlin the last game against the Jets or somewhere in the season..
Why would they? Tanny played just fine all yr & had normal growing pains.
My credibilty and reasoning, Tannehill played horribly against the Bills.
This season, in my opinion, was a complete wasted season, it did nothing to help Tannehill in his development, and I could make an argument it destroyed him mentally and set him back even further.
I think this yr helped him a ton. I do not view Tanny as a mentally weak person.
Don Shula was a no nonsense coach and would have tried something different.
Shula had Griese & Marino. He never had to develop a young Qb who struggled from time to time.
This season by far, as a fan, was one of the worst most grinding seasons, primarily because of an incompetent coaching staff and the fact we were in position with so much talent on this team.
They never made any adjustments and took zero risks during the entire season.
Typical yr for me.
We are now drafting so low in the draft, that our finish this season doesn't even help us with the draft, this season has set us back, with more questions than answers.
Talent is everywhere in the draft.
