    If tannehill gets through this un-scathed and performs to these average stands and possibly more.imagine what he could accomplish with playmakers. The good new is that if Martin pans out, this oline can be pretty stout and all Miami needs to do is focus on giving him weapons.

    Un-injured, and more TDs than INTs.

    Yards are too dependent on the receivers, if Fasano is the only guy Tannehill has trust in to catch the ball it's going to be a long season. I'm not as concerned with numbers as I am with his decision making this year. When no1 is open, which will happen often this year I want to see him show the discipline to get rid of the ball rather than forcing it into tight situations with receivers that can't reward his risk and take the ball away from defenders.

    Legedu needs to get cut. He is straight garbage.

    Excellent point bostonphin. We need a determination of his qb/football IQ this year not his stats

    Man, the more I read that the angrier I get at Jeff Ireland. You draft your franchise QB you need to do two things: 1. Protect him and 2. Give him weapons to throw to. He addressed the first point by drafting Martin who I hope works out. The second one? Boy he overestimated what we had left once we traded Brandon Marshall and then he didn't really draft or sign anyone who could replace his presence or production. God, why didn't Ross fire him along with Sparano last year? grumble grumble...

    I think you'll see a lot of throws to the backs, lots of roll outs, lots of screens. With the constant hurry-up offense running, defenses may get winded, confused or might not have the right personnel on the field for situations (or combinations of those factors). That may also open things up for receivers down field later in games. A good running game could help tremendously too. Tannehill may tuck and run 2 or 3 times a game. If nothing else, this could be a very interesting season to watch. Tannehill's got skills man :)

    And none of these guys should be the 1st read for a rookie QB. Or a vet QB for that matter...
