I am into statistics, So before commenting about Ryan Tannehill, I looked at his college statistic and THEY ARE LOUSY. I don't understand the hype. Even in the best case scenario, he is not an NFL starting QB NOW!! Look before you jump up and down.
I have been critical of this organization and have yet to be proven wrong. They are incompetent and seem to be shooting from the hip and do not have a plan. It seems no good free agents want to come here. Lets see. They trade 2 second round picks in order to get Brandon Marshall. They know he is a trouble maker but he is a very good WR. They put him with Chad Henne who had no idea how to play with him. They over pay and then when he gets into trouble, they dump him for 2 3rd round picks. There were many good WR on FA market. The team signs none and now have no #1 WR. Brian Hartline is OK. But IMHO, he would be a #2 or #3 WR on most other teams in this league! Actually, I have been rather pleased with Matt Moore. But now the team seems to be considering overpaying Alex Smith, who for much of his career has been a bust or even worse, drafting Ryan Tannehill!
Last year, the team had the opportunity to draft Ryan Mallett in the second round but passed on him. He is so much better than Ryan Tannehill. Lets do a quick comparison of their last 2 years at college.I will list them as QB Rating ---Completion % ---- TD/INT's Ryan T Texas A&M 2010----93-----65%-----13/6 2011----89-----61%-----29/15 Ryan M Arkansas 2009-----153----56%----30/7 2010-----164----65%----32/12 It seems this team is floating aimlessly with NO PLAN. New England drafts for the future. They pick up Ryan Mallet in the 3rd round and are now grooming him to replace Tom Brady.
This team uses 2nd round picks and hasn't been able to find a starting QB in a decade. CP10 fell in their laps and did great for a few years. Last point, look at the players we could have had! Drew Brees could be passing to Wes Welker and Brandon Marshall. IMHO, that is super bowl material. Instead we could be looking at Alex Smith possibly throwing to Ted Ginn again and Brian Hartline!! Does anyone else see a problem here??????
So, What do we do now for a QB???
