1. "I wonder how many rushing yards the Dolphins had in games when (Ryan Tannehill) was above 90 rating." - BreakinDownFilm@twitter.com

This was a good follow-up to my stat that Tannehill is 13-1 when his quarterback rating is over 90 and 4-18 when it's under 90. The question suggests a good running attack helps him win - as it does all quarterbacks. The numbers bear that out with Tannehill, too.

When the Dolphins rush for more than 100 yards AND Tannehill has a 90 rating or above, the Dolphins are 10-0. That's telling, but not especially surprising considering the defense has been good to very good the past few years so when the offense clicks the team wins.

Perhaps more revealing is the fact the Dolphins are 3-1* when Tannehill has a 90 rating and they rush for under 100 yards. What that's really saying is Tannehill is capable of lifting the team -- but doesn't have many games where he does it. Four times in 36 starts is a stat you'd like to see built on as this season moves on - even as the Dolphins have the fifth-best rushing game in the league. (* I had to stat incorrectly reversed initially. But Tannehill's only loss when having a 90 rating came in 2012 against Indianapolis when he had a 90.9 rating and the Dolphins ran for 84 yards).

Does that mean a rushing game is the more defining stat for the Dolphins? Not for me. In Tannehill starts, the Dolphins are 6-13 when rushing for under 100 yards and 11-6 when rushing for more than 100 yards. That's a good dividing line. Still, for me, 13-1 when the quarterback rating is over 90 is a better one.

These stats do tell you want you need to see as Tannehill moves through Year 3. Some days, a good quarterback can pick up a struggling offense and move it on his arm. Tannehill has so many skills you want in a quarterback - the mind, the attitude, the toughness, the work ethic. But he has to be able to lift this offense on his arm more than four times in 36 starts if he's going to reach the level the Dolphins need. ...

70 RT 30 RB. You can plug and play with RBs nowadays, but you need a franchise QB these days.

If stats were simply a formula you could plug in to use for a human then yeah, Tannehill should go ahead & get a 90+ QBR every time. But consider that he isn't the only factor that makes up his rating as receivers, O-line, &game situation bare some responsibility.

The percentage advantage lies in the running game because it is easier to control until/unless RT becomes an elite QB. So the probability of his 90+ QBR increases when establishing a good running game first . . . for now
