I doubt Omar is bitter. He wasn't the only one thinking Garrard should of been the starter but even a Ryan Tannehill epic fail isn't going to change that. Maybe a little heat from the press will force the coaching staff to open things up a bit. RT needs to learn how to buy time, feel the pressure and make plays when none are to be had on the field. That is the mark of greatness. This sitting back and playing well when everything is going your way is easy stuff. I want to see him get it done in the face of adversity. He can only do that if the coaching staff allows him to open up the passing game down the field.
I don't disagree with a thing you are saying about Tannehill and I'm not declaring him anything. I've always been a wait and see guy with just about every QB Miami has had since Marino (minus Fiedler because I just never thought he could become franchise stuff.) For all I know Tannehill might be a bust in the making.
I'm just noting that Kelly is throwing this stuff out there because he is looking to create some headlines and premature debate. I used to follow his articles and tweets just about every day. He was so sure that Tannehill shouldn't start and that Garrard would thrive. Whenever people mentioned the name Henne he would shut down the conversation and say that era is over. Now he turns around uses it to create drama in peoples' minds about Tannehill. He doesn't have to spell it out, most of us can read between the lines. I'm sorry if the Manning example is old, but why wouldn't he counter with and at this point Manning was... if he wanted to do a thoughtful article on turning points or evaluations of young QBs?
Kelly is an egomaniac who thinks he knows the real deal and it is why I stopped reading anything from him. His counterpoint to everything is I talk to people in the know and I've read Taking Your Eyes Off the Ball. And I've seen him play the "I told you so" game countless times on twitter. I'd bet money that at some point he'll tweet again with wonder of how this offense could have performed with an experienced vet like Garrard and that coaching staff should have slow cooked (his favorite phrase) Tannehill instead of ruining him.
My two cents.
