    Keep in mind that we are talking present time. This kid should continue to get even better. We might have hit the god damned JACKPOT with this player!!!!

    I have this kid as an above average QB right now. His play demonstrates it. He played like **** in week one vs. a great Texans defense in his first ever start. Since then he has played well for the most part. Our two wins the kid has no turnovers. Thats obviously the key to our success. When he dosent turn the ball over we will be tough as hell to beat.

    Against Arizona, we saw him make every throw on any route you wanted to see. He can make them all. This week, I was blown away with how well he moved in and out of the pocket. He made some great decisions today as well as some great throws. His poise is outstanding as well. He seems to have command out there. Obviously, playing in the same system as he did in college is to his benefit, but this kid has proven he has all the tools. The sky is the limit.

    Lets run this list..... this is mine, make your own if you wish.

    1) Fitzpatrick - Totally marginal starter.
    2) Sanchez - Duh. Sanchez blows. You know how hard it is in the NFL today to not complete at least 50% of your attempts. So hard that only Sanchez hasnt done that this season.
    3) Weeden - He is looking much better than week 1, but he still cant **** with Tannebeast
    4) Dalton - Tannehill's ginger ***** today. Lauren texted Ryan after the game saying she is putting on a red wig so he can smack that *** just as hard when he gets home.
    5) Gabbert - blows
    6) Locker - I count him as the starter since he would be if not injured.
    7) Palmer - Washed up. Never the same since tearing up his knee
    8) Cassel - Hot garbage
    9) Romo - I would say he is the most overrated QB in the league, if not for some of the guys in his division
    10) Vick - Overrated fumble and INT machine. That team is good enough to win it all with Tannehill. Just think if they had a bonafied elite QB...... Dream team :lol:
    11) Bob Griffin the turd - OVER----RATED!!! Got his **** smacked by the Falcons today.... tryin to matchup with Matty Ice... :lol: GET REAL!!!!
    12) Cutler - Another overhyped guy. Wait till it gets clutch time and he throws 17 picks or gets injured
    13) Ponder - I like this player. He could develope into a solid QB. He's no Tannebeast though.
    14) Scam Newton - Hype. Put a towel on your head and sit the **** down. SuperScam.
    15) Josh Freeman - They need to draft another QB. Very marginally mediocre player.
    16) Wilson - Finding his way to the bench soon from what Mort was saying this morning. Total meh.
    17) Bradford - Very average. Rookie year may turn out to be his best.
    18) Kolb - Hes Kolb.

    So that leaves me already ranking Tannebeast as the 14th best QB in the league. Not too bad young man. To be honest, there are a couple of guys I wont have a problem putting him ahead of if he continues to play well for the rest of the season. I simply cant put him ahead of any of the elites after even a whole season, but there are a couple of guys he could certainly pass up who havent etched their name into that top tier yet. :woot:

    EDIT: Adds to the list post OP.....

    Matthew Stafford
    Philip Rivers
    Alex Smith
    Matt Schaub
    Joe Flacco

    I think I agree with everyone on the list except for Romo. Ponder looks like he is developing, too.

    What really impresses me about Tannehill is the very evident improvement he makes from week to week. We are not seeing batted passes after game one. We are seeing fewer poor decisions with where to go with the ball. We are seeing him take better care of the ball when the pass rush gets to him. The numbers aren't gaudy, but look at what is surrounding him. Every week we have 2-3 plays where his weapons just flat out kill drives where Tannehill is moving the team downfield. This week we had Charles Clay dropping the ball and Daniel Thomas embarrassingly get run down from behind on that nice third down screen pass.

    The single most disastrous thing that could have happened to the Miami Dolphins in 2012 would have been David Garrard starting week one at Houston.

    Tannebeast is a good nickname for him.

    He's no John Beck, but we'll manage.

    Tannehill has by far exceeded my expectations as a starter from day 1. I keep watching him and I go whoa! Isnt this his 2nd year starting? Cause thats the level hes playing at. It is truely exciting to watch...

    I won't go into better but if I was making a list of starting qbs I wouldn't trade tanny for, the list would be bigger.

    Romo and Newton are far above Tannehill at the moment.

    Thats an entirely different list and mine would be bigger too. If that were the criteria you could add several more names. Older QBs who are currently better I would not trade Tannehill for..... there are several. Brees for instance. As good as he is, he is way older and therefore the value isnt the same. Peyton etc etc etc.

    When Ryan starts throwing TD passes on a consistent basis, I'll take this list a little more seriously.

    RG3 has put up some pretty great numbers, Ponder really looks good and at this point I would still have to put Dalton ahead just because he did it for a whole season. Cam Newton HAS to be up there also, but RT is off to a great start and isn't making those "whadda think'n" kinda plays I was expecting from him. I also think the coaching staff is doing and excellent job of putting him into situations that give him a chance to be successful.

    We have been waiting 15 years to find a QB to build around, I think we are now there. Let the building BEGIN!!!!

    Tanny has thrown some cripplimg picks and did lose to Mark Sanchez. And you have alotta playoff QBs on there man. I get you putting Dalton, but not Cutler, Romo, Vick. Ponder, RG3, and Bradford are comparable to Tanny at this point.

    Like someome said, a 'would you trade for' question might be better.

    I look at it this way....how many rookie QB's win the job, play tough teams week in week out, and do this kind of damage?

    Not many.

    Get another big TE and WR and throw in Swope and this team will rock.

    Can't disagree strongly with anyone on your list, maybe one or two it is hard to judge because I haven't seen them enough or because Tannehill has played so few games, but you are in the right ball park. We don't however know how he handles the pressure of big games, the playoff games in January so I would be inclined to wait until we know that.

    Scam Newton...... you mean the guy that is now 7-14 as a starter? Wouldnt you argue Steve Smith is way better than any WR Tannebeast has? Newton has 2 solid RBs. Matt Moore won more games with that team in less starts than Scam Newton.

    What were his pathetic numbers today against a weak Seattle team....in Carolina too. A west coast team traveling east and Newton still couldnt get it done. #1 overall pick. You guys can buy into the hype all you want. I see Newton for what he is..... TOTAL BUST!!!!


    If you think Newton is a better player than Tannebeast, youre watching a completely different game than I am. Or youre not watching games and just listening to the sock puppets on ESPN and NFLN. There is a reason that Deion Sanders dosent have a little tune for Tannehill's name yet and its not because he isnt as good of a player as Newton.

    Russell Wilson has been just as impressive as Tannehill.

    No. I've watched the Seahawks, and no. There's talk there that Matt Flynn could replace him soon.

    How? Higher completion %, more TDs, less INT, and a better record.

    19-25 , TD and a win over Panthers on the road. I'd say he been just as impressive. I'm a diehard fin fan, but we have to stop felating Tannehill.

    The irony is I sincerely believe we now have both the 2nd and: 3rd best QBs in the AFCE on our roster.

    You forgot about the two interceptions he threw today, including the pick six that almost won the game for the otherwise inept Panthers?

    Look at how many points Seattle has been putting up game by game, and look at the talent that surrounds Wilson.

    So much truth in one post. Tannehill is absolutely that good already and he's progressing. He looks dramatically less like a rookie every game. Congrats on having the guts to very correctly put Tannehill ahead of Romo and Vick and the endless hype machine that follows those two around through their mediocre, insubstantial, ringless careers.

    Tannehill is more accurate than matt ryan. If you look at it for what it is, bob griffen the turd was beating the falcons,and was driving b4 he got injured.. Cam newton isnt very accurate, hes a thrower. Add alex smith to that list and drop romo. Romo threw 31 tds last year w 10 picks and no oline

    I agree with Tannebeast>Scam Newton. Newton is a ballhog who wrecks the value of his RBs and chucks it up like he just don't care who winds up with it. He's the opposite of a winning team player and Carolina is going nowhere so long as Newton is there. Rivera is a terrible head coach. How they ignore a solid RB combo is beyond me. They've rendered Williams/Stewart combo useless and that's just retarded.

    Romo is better right now but Tannehill's decision making is better. I wanna see what he can do with Gaffney.

    Props to the OP for putting that list together! A few home-town picks on there, but overall it puts Tanny in good perspective.

    Thanks!

    Are kidding me? Newton, seriously? He has SUCKED so far this season(2nd season mind you and should be improving not declining right?) Not saying that Tannehill is better than Newtown right now but to say that Newtown is FAR better is a joke and cannot be taken seriously if you have any intelligence.

    LOL @ people talking about Russell Wilson as if he has been solid. Mort reported this morning that Pete Carrol is considering benching him for Matt Flynn. Wilson has not played well and the fact is they shouldve been 1-3 going into today. Their offensive numbers are terrible.

    I wouldn't characterize Wilson as terrible, but he has been middling to poor since a pretty decent week one. The fact is that he isn't making the weapons around him better, while Tannehill is.

    Dalton sucks whenever AJ Green is blanketed. lol I said not too long ago that Tannehill was the 2nd best QB in the AFC East already. Of course people gave me thumb downs because Fitzpatrick had all those TDs. Please Fitz is terrible, at least Tannehill is keeping his teams in the game. Buffalo paid a lot of money for Fitz and that D line and that's not quite working out. I agree with the list including Romo. Romo has all those weapons and still underachieves.
