Good article except the part about not having a Reggie Wayne or a Santanna Moss . Reggie Wayne is still a damn good receiver while Tannehill has two receivers as good as Santanna Moss right now in Hartline and Bess. Santanna Moss is not even a starter anymore he is a pure slot receiver. He is still a good player but he is totally a role player now and not even better than our weapons.
Cool I respect Brandt's opinion
gil has a great eye for talent!!
I was skeptical of picking Tannehill at #8 and at playing him this year. I am glad Tannehill is proving me wrong. I think Tannehill's progress has been truly impressive. As long as he limits turnovers he has shown he is a legit playmaker.
Gil Brandt had the same kind of question marks about Tannehill, but the difference with Gil is he understands things like character and work ethic and how a player can succeed quickly in the pros while not neccessarily having big success in college.
So many players out there get overlooked based on what they did in college in a system where teams are brought together via a football program and its high profile and rankings where top players go to bigger schools and such. When you go into the pros, you are working with established teams, players. Its just different.
The fact that Tannehill comes in with same coach and system in Texas as your OC now, is just insane. It never happens. No wonder he has poise. He is a leader (unlike what Mike Holgren thinks).
When the Godfather speaks...I listen.
I think tannehills doing better than luck imo
And now......The big question I had about RGIII is rearing it's head. Those concussions
he takes are going to take a toll. That hit he took the other day is similar to more than
a few I saw him take at Baylor. He's got to learn to run OOB.
thats the only complaint one can have about griffin. all these other things acting like griffin is not a good qb are just plain silly and without merit
That's kinda my point. I love me some RGIII, BUT since everyone these days think concussions are the worst
thing ever, there's a finite number of them the NFL is going to allow someone to take.
Goon, the point is that there's already a finite number of concussions that a person can take without seriously messing up their brain -- and body.
Concussions have like this weird half-life -- where each successive one adds almost exponentially to susceptibility and potential danger.
Concussions, because they cannot be seen, have been dismissed fairly easily. But medical science is gradually overcoming football culture ignorance. FACT: Concussions are far more damaging to a person's life than blowing out an ACL or tearing a rotators cuff.
The fact that RGIII has already had multiple concussions is a red flag, no other way to put it. He's a phenomenal talent but needs to be protected. Otherwise he will shorten his career and life.
It's always good.to hear the things Brandt said. I respect him and his opinions.
That article felt more like a fluff human interest story than an objective football analysis by Gilbert Brandt IMHO. The main knocks against Tannehill were his raw read and react skills from his dearth of starts at QB, his lack of production at crunch time against premier competition, and his tendency to stare down receivers. Brandt knows this but all he mentioned were tipped passes.
He further made it seem that football people were highly negative of Tannehill's first game against the Texans. Actually, most were very pleasantly surprised and thought there was a lot upon which to build. Unfortunately, Brandt leaves out all of this to write a typical heart-warming piece about a young QB. I would be more excited about Gilbert Brandt's praise if he had given us his full football analysis of Tannehill and it were positive.
Having watched both RG3 and Tannehill in college, I fully expected them both do well.
