    I know I"m going to take a lot of heat from all the people who know really what they are talking about, but it would really be nice to have a chance to win this year. I don't care about Ireland keeping his job, nor do I really want to gamble again for another 2 or 3 years in the hopes that we have our quarterback.

    We know that Devlin will be able to keep us in the game, and not lose it for us. He will have much better decision making, he will move the ball, complete passes, and not throw many ints, batted balls, and sacks. Contrary to poplular opinion, he is more experienced and ready than Tannehill right now.

    I know it is early, and I know it won't happen because of Ireland's agenda, but I'm just saying...

    Can we get a sticky start Devlin. Thread? That way they don't pollute they main forum all season. Mods can just move any posts with Devlin in the title to the sticky thread. Those who want to talk Devlin can do it there.

    At least you admit in your post you have no idea what you're talking about.

    In the preseason, Devlin showed he had the same skill that Tannehill has right now in getting to the goalline and not scoring.

    Why every time one player have a bad game some people start bashing him and calling for another player we need to support the team, he is only a rookie, look at luck stats ANDREW LUCK the nex manning, elway, the one etc etc, he has a bad game with a lot better recievers, tannenhill is our qb support him ( sorry if I have mistakes I don't write very good in English)
    GO PHINS!!!!!!

    I knew this would get your panties in a bunch. I know that you know so much about football because you didn't waste your time playing football, but instead spent countless long hours studying others playing and listening to what others say. There is no way that you will be convinced until you see it for yourselves, so just wait and see, and remember you heard it here first.

    I can make a case for Devlin being the #2 quarterback (a very weak case) but benching Tannehill for him is ridiculous.

    Who was Devlin playing against? I was under the impression Tannehill was playing against 1's and Devlin against 3's.. But please, correct me if I am wrong. :rolleyes2:

    You never answered my serious questions about why Devlin the last time you posted this same suggestion in preseason.

    You have advocated for him early in preseason - even before he had his good showings against non-starters. How long have you been following him and are you basing this opinion on something besides this year's preseason games?

    How can you suggest with what you have seen that he should be playing ahead of RT?

    Easy answer.. He has no idea what he's talking about.. Id just write him off and move on if I were you. He clearly has no clue what he's talking about.

    :lol: How dare you suggest that Devlin is ready to step up and lead us to "one" FG on offense, throw 5 batted balls, 3 interceptions, fumble a shotgun snap, and throw the ball short on 4th and long resulting in turning the ball over on downs the way only a #8 pick in the draft can.

    You did say you knew you were going to take a lot of heat. At this point it is plain sacrilegious to suggest anything other than Tannehill is the man.

    It's not gonna happen. It's unrealistic. It's just a waste of time.

    I do commend the OP for waiting 3 hours after the game to post this. You just know he wanted to do it in the 2nd quarter

    I don't remember what you question was, but College carreer speaks for itself. Also outplayed all our other qbs in minimal pre-season opportunities, if you watched the preseason. He has moved the ball the length of the field on 4 out of his 7 possessions played. Tannehill got to the redzone only 4 times out of all his posessions in the preseason. You say he only played agaisnt 2s and 3s, but that's all he was given, it doesn't mean that he would have been worse against 1s. Besides, he was working with 2s and 3s offensive line and receivers who couldn't get space. Matt Moore was even better against 1s than 2s and 3s.

    I'm not saying he should be playing in front of Tannehill (a hefty price was paid for him), I'm just saying that we do better and win a lot more games if he was.

    But don't worry, hopefully Tannehill will win us more games than Henne, maybe; and even if Philbin would like to play Devlin, he won't with Ireland running him.

    I think you have a very unhealthy obsession with Devlin, dude. Just give it up, man.

    If Philbin wanted anyone but Tannehill as the starter, he wouldn't have named him so after week two, when he hadn't done anything to earn the job.

    So, you know that Devlin can win for us? Why aren't you working for the FBI?

    Why does this sound familiar??? Oh yeah, people said the same thing about...Damon Huard, Ray Lucas, Brian Griese, Sage Rosenfels, AJ Feely, John Beck and Tyler Thigpen....It was really depressing making that list.

    You should know that college experience NEVER speaks for itself when transitioning to the NFL. When Devlin was on the field, he was against 3rd stringers AND they were in prevent defense most of the time!

    I mean, I knew these threads would start eventually, but after the first game???

    I don't happen to agree with the OP, but I thought different opinions were tolerated. Why all the ridicule?

    I find it hysterical, it amazes me how some people can react to a game. Tanny is young and is going to go through growing pains just like all QB's do. Give it a rest, take a toke and go back to Madden. Thank You

    I almost never post but I have to after that comment. By far the most unintelligent thing anyone has posted. Please remove any thoughts from you brain or lack there of and never post again.

    I love how we've been sitting on this goldmine that is Pat Devlin and the only people who are aware of this fact are the fan boys here at FinHeaven.

    This is about as dumb a thread as any living human being can possibly start.

    Im going to print this thread and wipe my *** with it the next time I have to take a dump.
