Jim, chill out. This is an opinion forum. I saw a QB missing throws Sunday, did you? I also saw WRs dropping passes, did you? This is all we are saying, no one is hating or needing eyes checked. So please, with a cherry on top, stop the BS.
There are several haters who have their agenda on here about Tannehill. Sure he missed some throws, I am not stupid. But so does every QB in the NFL, every Sunday. This group was mad because they wanted us to draft RGIII or some other crap like that, so they cry and complain after every game. Even after we BEAT NE, these guys complain that some passes were off. It's idiotic.
I am fine with having an opinion, just be able to back it up with facts.
Otherwise, their opinions are dismissed as blind haters.
I hate to do it again...I constantly have to smack Jim any time he opens his mouth about our qb.
I don't want to go on a rant here as I have done in various different places...
In short- he lacked intangibles, accuracy, and "IT" his whole life. We drafted him bc we were desperate and the dinosaur Sherman made us do it.
He will be good enough to win 7-9 games show some flashes.
His awareness is sooo incredibly low he wont make the necessary plays consistently for us to ever be a contender with him. Can he win 10 games and win a divisional round game? Probably if Lazor masks his deficiencies and our defense plays well.
There are too many examples of his lack of awareness to go into detail, I don't jhave the time let me give a couple:
sliding short of first down in Jets game last yr
missing deep post routes when the safety is not in play! This is a throw with a 20 yard room for error. you can miss way inside, long, short and inside..He hisses short and outside (where the db is trailing from)
He doesn't know ho to move within the pocket or when to leave the pocket. When he moves its a sprint to the right, no slide in pocket
he has run out of bounds 5 yards short of the los when we were trying to run out the clock!
He was NOT a difference maker in college, he couldn't win the big games there. Then on comes Johnny and dominates on the same team..
I like Tannehill, he seems like a great dude, he is tough, I think he is a competitor. He just lacks whats most important IMO
