What I don't understand is how when Tanny does well, it's all him. But when he comes out and leads the offense to 7pts in two games to end the season when the playoffs were on the line, it's all coaching and everybody else.
That is not a statement in favor of this coaching staff, because clearly they have issues ..... but I just find the distinction fascinating and almost self-fulfilling.
It's very simple, Rock. Tannehill is a developing player. He is supposed to have deficiencies in his game, bumps along the road, growing pains etc. These coaches are the ones that are supposed to be developing him. They are supposed to be offensive gurus with years and years of experience in the NFL.
That being said, I think the people who are unwilling to assign some responsibility to Tannehill when he performs poorly are few and far between. Don't overstate it as if it a large group of "Tanny-lovers".
