Yes, he is on the right track and just needs to develop with expirience.

No, I wouldn't be surprised if Barkley was a Dolphin in 2013.

Nice idea for a thread! This will be very handy to track his stats.

I don't think the Dolphins are going after another QB anytime soon now that Tannehill is here. He may or may not be here in 10 years but as far as Ireland and Philbin are concerned, yeah, he's the only shot they're going to get. We have a collection of good players, a relatively clear picture of what we want the team to be, a nice idea of what pieces we're lacking, a QB that seems to have a lot of potential and coaches who seem to know what they're doing.

I'd say we're finally heading in a comfortable direction.

One particular thing I have noticed is his small Y/A. He doesn't seem to throw it deep at all and considering Fasano's stats it's pretty obvious he is his go to guy. Hartline nor Bess can keep up with true number one corners which limits his downfield options and Armstrong/Naanee/Clay don't seem to be getting open at all. Also since we lack any true deep threats the safeties keep playing close to the linebackers limiting big runs and limiting space for our receivers. We seem to be trapped and we need a legitimate third WR option for Tannehill if we wan't to see more yards and a larger Y/A. This should lead to more TD's, which leads to more wins, which is is why Y/A is correlated to winning games.

I believe in Ryan Tannehill / Tanny / Tan Tan / The Tanchise / RT17.

I like what I have seen so far. If he continues to progress we could have a very good QB in Miami once again. He needs weapons and protection, but I like what I have seen.

I was listening to ESPN radio and they were talking about Flacco and how he is starting to become an elite QB. I think the same thing is going to happen here. I think Tanney has all the attributes you need in a QB and now it is time to piece guys around him. Things are finally starting to look right in Miami

I agree. We just need more at the WR position. This is something we saw in previous years however, even when Brandon Marshall was here. The only real weapon Henne had was when the offense started moving quickly. It was rare but we saw it a few times. I believe the up-tempo format of this offense will allow us to make the most of what we have. After this season however, WR must be addressed. It doesn't help either that in a league of hot-rod TEs we are stuck driving a school bus.

Couldn't agree more, Merc.

I do not think it is fair to Tanney to respond on this right now. There are encouraging signs but there are also disturbing ones as well. I want to caution many of you that Chad Henne had the attributes to be a good QB as well. Hell, he even had great games that thought he may have arrived (i.e Monday NIght win versus the Jets). I am just going to be patient and watch the Fins this year and hope they improve a little every week.

I agree with needing to be patient... The one thing though that I see that I never saw in Henne is poise and leadership.

It's not really about Tannehill and it was never really about Henne. Some guys get drafted and go to places where individuals develop them well and some don't.

There was nothing about Michigan's Chad Henne that was wrong at all. His college highlights were fantastic and quite frankly I'd take him over Ryan Tannehill given their college careers but Tannehill was drafted by a Dolphins team that has individuals who appear significantly more adept at developing a player at the QB position. It's in how they coach. It's in who they keep around. It's in the scheme. It's in everything.

Very little about the Henne-era Dolphins made Henne a better player. The players didn't. The coaches didn't. The system didn't. Nothing helped Henne achieve what he might have had he gone to a Green Bay or New England. There are lots of things however about the Tannehill-era Dolphins that should lead to at least a more groomed player over a comparable time-span. Now, as I said, the highlights aren't that impressive with Tannehill so I'm not sure that he'll ever develop even to the point of a Schaub, Ryan or Flacco, but there's a lot more to be thankful for now in terms of having a complete system in place to develop a QB.

That's a lot more important than whoever-the-hell we draft.

The best play tanney made this year was that double pump slant incompletion against.arizone because.it.would have gotten tipped and perhaps picked.

Or so the announcers said. I would like to believe it doesn't take a genius to avoid that catastrophe however. He's stood in the pocket a couple times today and gotten the ball downfield. To me, that's much more significant as it means he's got the instincts we need our QB to have.

Im liking a lot of what i see from Tannehill, but the lack of TD passes are a cause of concern, but it it him or our lack of difference makers?
