    This is the first offseason in a long time where this is not the #1 question for this team.

    Now lets get some damn weapons

    Good receivers, a tight end, and a bit more improvement on the offensive line would make this team very interesting.

    better play calling to take less pressure off of him is gonna help just as much as more weapons. yes we need the weapons, but we have to call plays that work to his strengths, another poster commented elsewhere that his accuracy was alot lower out of the shotgun. it seems like henne had the same issues. i havent looked up the stats but i think the PA bootlegs were what he seemed to strive in towards end of season. greanted with that the running game has to be working. would like to see us get a speed reciever that is willing to WORK! do the after practices with tanne. get the timing down on the deep throws. quite a few of tannes deep throws seemed to be off target. but yes i dont see QB as a concern. and am actually happy going into offseason knowing thats one place we're not gonna waste time looking to upgrade at

    It's nice FOR ONCE to have an offseason where we don't have to look for a QB. Good thing too, because this draft is incredibly weak at QB.

    Are you fin fans nuts, Tanne-sh#t is awful! Ranked 30th out of 32! If Barkley is available at #12 you take him. RT is a WR pretending to be a QB. Marino didn't catch passes at Pitt.

    I see, and I guess the Colts should also consider getting a new QB.

    Ryan Tannehill=76.1 rating......Andrew Luck=76.5 rating

    Everyone was saying this about henne too. People actually thought we had the best qb situation in the league with henne cp10 and pat white. Just some perspective.

    The Colts are in the playoffs after being the worst team last year; and Luck did it with a worse team than us. Luck wins games, has many 4th quarter comebacks, including beating us. And Quarterback is a Major Concern for us if we want to win.

    Of course QB is NOT a major concern for us this off season. If you draft a QB in the first round, start him an entire season, he plays decent and you throw him away after his first season...what is the point of drafting a QB in the first place? if you don't give him time to show what he can do, why would you bother drafting one? When we drafted him, we knew QB won't be a concern in the next three to four off seasons. If Tannehill falters like Sanchez after four years QB will be a major concern for us again. But in this case we will be looking for a new coach and GM too. So, give Tannehill at least two more years to show what he's made of.

    You can have Barkley. Did you actually watch him play? He's another product of a system QB.... another Sanchez.

    Barkley will be a damn good QB. Just hope the Bills and Jets pass on him.

    It's not often I bother to reply to a post like yours - but seriously what is your agenda?

    You wanted Devlin to start.

    You say that the Colts are a worse team than the Dolphins offensively. Really? That's just silly.

    Please do not compare tannehill to luck. Tanny is not even close to the level of luck. We might get 10 wins over the next two years with this guy. The colts found their next payton manning. Must be nice.

    Yeah, I was going to say this. The fact is, 3 years ago QB was not a major offseason concern because in his first year (unexpected as Penny got hurt) as starter Henne showed promise. Therefore QB was not a major concern, same as Tanny and this offseason. If two offseasons from now we're not seeing progression, or worse yet regression, than QB will go right back to the top of the list. But I'm going to wait and give Tanny a chance before either declaring him a bust OR declaring him our "franchise QB".

    How desperate have Miami Dolphin fans become since not having a decent QB since Marino retired?

    Some think that a QB that finished 56th out of 115 QBs ranked in college last year and led the preseason #8 Aggies to a 7-6 record and out of the top 25, followed that by finishing 27th (not 29th b/c Smith and Kaepernick barely missed out on qualifying due to lack of attempts at 218 each) and leading Miami to a 6-9 record (not counting the Jets game in which Moore led Miami) has resolved the QB woes and the position is no longer a major concern...:rolleyes2:

    How about waiting until Tannehill actually EARNS the praise.

    :lol: As I am typing just watched a FRESHMAN QB at Texas A&M throw another TD pass against Oklahoma. Wonder who Aggie fans think is the better QB...a 5th year senior named Tannehill who played for them last year or a red-shirt freshman Johnny football.

    Texas A&M's QB replacement for Ryan Tannehill has become the first freshman in history to win the Heisman... and now he's tearing up the Cotton Bowl tonight....... if Tannehill doesn't work out, Suck for Manziel.

    If we take this sort of approach, its a disaster for failure. You don't believe me, look at Alex Smith.

    A 7-9 season, and Ryan Tannehill's 12- TD's against 13- picks is not good by any means.

    Let's wait and see what happens in the off-season and pre-season first.

    Well, does Miami really have a goto receiver as Reggie Wayne.....or as good a verticle receiver as Hilton for that matter?

    Who was the better recieving TE between Fasano and Dwayne Allen? Fasano caught 41 receptions for 332 yards 5tds (80 yards after catch), Dwayne Allen had 45 for 521 3 TDs (225 yards after catch).

    Yes, Miami might have better talent on defense, and at RB, but this is not a team comparison, it's a comparison on two QBs, and and the talent they both had around them to help them passing wise. Luck will probably be a better QB when both of them are retired, but the point is, Luck had better receiving talent around him, yet he ended up with only .4 points better then Tannhill.

    I may be wrong, but I have a feeling this off season Miami is going to concentrate more then the Colts on geting better receiving talent. Tannehill should have better receiving talent around him, while Luck will have more or less the same receiving talent to help him.

    Your being really nieve to think INDY has a worse team than Miami. Reggie Wayne is having his best season of his career and with the emergence of T.Y. Hilton the offense has become more potent. Oh and let us not forget, Dwayne Allen, and Coby Fleener. If you can garner better Miami offensive statistics than those above mentioned, you'd be right.

    No, the Colts are better offensively because they have a good quarterback. Yes, Devlin should start, and he is one of the best quarterbacks in the 2011 class, but unfortunately he hasn't gotten his chance YET, and we are wasting time with Tannehill for Ireland's job sake--maybe we'll see when/if Tannehill goes down next year.

    We may draft a QB in the later rounds as a development player. Matt Moore is probably gone this off-season as lots of teams are looking for QBs. Someone will give him a chance to start. So even with Devlin on the roster, I bet we draft a QB.

    You really can't say if Tanny is good or not. He was a rookie, had poor line play, lacked wr talent. His rookie year was a C grade, made mistakes, made some good throws. He never really put the team on his back like Marino did as a young qb. I think we will know more next year with an upgraded roster. Henne had a promising rookie year and then never really progressed after that. Of course he didn't have a good offensive coordinator or weapons around him. This team has lacked a seam threat TE for a long time, a (good) burner at WR, and good OL. Until all those fall into place I think its unfair to judge him a qb. IMO,

    The fact that RGIII and Wilson had historic rookie seasons is clouding some people's minds when it comes to evaluating Ryan Tannehill. For a typical rookie season, Tannehill played very well and improved as the season went on. He was not making the same mistakes at the end of the year that he was making in Week 1. Is he definitely going to be a top 10 quarterback or guaranteed to be the Dolphins starter for 5+ years? Far to early to say, but he has definitely shown enough to prove he should be a NFL starter and has given the quarterback long term hope, something we haven't seen since Dan Marino. The book is far from finished on Tannehill, but the early returns are very encouraging and we should all be excited about what the future holds with him at QB.

    It is nice that Miami won't have to chase discarded veteran quarterbacks looking for another shot at starting. Or that Miami doesn't have to really worry about taking a QB early in a draft class that could rank amongst the worst for quarterbacks. The only concern at quarterback is what they want to do with depth. Do they re-sign Matt Moore to be the #2 and keep Devlin at #3? Do they bring in another veteran to be the #2? Or do they elevate Devlin to #2 and maybe draft a late round quarterback to be the #3.

    It is very nice to have our starter in place and not have to worry about that this offseason.

    You mean Dan Marino who as a rookie QB had Clayton, Duper and Moore at WR, Dan Johnson, Rose and Hardy at TE.......Tonny Nathan who was one of the best RB's out of the back field and a top o-line with a HOF center and 2 probowl guards? Marino didn't need to put the team on his back as a rookie. Lets not re-write history....he came to a great team that only needed a QB. Tanny came to a team that needed a QB plus 2 WR's, a TE and an oline.

    Ozzy rules!!

    Indianapolis had the 3rd easiest schedule in the league this year at .441 (just behind Atlanta .422 and Cincinnati .438). We had the 13th easiest schedule at .500. Just to show you that Luck may have benefitted from facing lesser opponents.

    You still saw the awesome accuracy with Marino though. Tannehill's accuracy is an issue at times.
