Phinsider Flash Poll: Is This Stat About Ryan Tannehill Telling Or Useless?

So, like most Dolphins fans, or at least the one's that often comment on this site, I find Omar Kelly one of those reporters that, well I'll put this nicely, should be doing just about anything else but reporting on our beloved Miami Dolphins. That being said he was a guest on the Big O show this week and offered up an interesting stat on the Dolphins quarterback that Omar loves to hate, Ryan Tannehill. Now mind you this stat only spans 7 games in the last 32 which have more to do with the lack of health of certain players than it does the overall point that the stat may or may not make (because that is of course for you to decide).

So what is this so-called "magical" or maybe not so magical stat? Well in the last two seasons when Mike Pounce, Ja'Wuan James, and Branden Albert have all three started and finished the game the teams record is 6 and 1. The one loss came to the Green Bay Packers in 2014 (a game the Phins lost in the final seconds due to a defensive collapse). In those seven games, Tannehill had a QB rating of 107, compleated 70% of his passes, averaged 254 yards per game and threw for 15 touchdowns to only 5 interceptions.

So the question is do you find this telling or not?
