    I've gone with 3 you haven't, because I agree with the 3 you listed...

    1) The "it" factor. Or leadership I think you could call it.
    2) Forgets his mistakes quickly!
    3) Throws incredibly well on the run!

    Love the fact his throw on the run is a thing of beauty, can make plays out of nothing.

    1. His ability to read defenses pre-snap and make adjustments(He does more presnap as a QB for us than anyone since #13)
    2. His poise in and outside of the pocket.(Dude doesn't get rattled, he'll stand in there and take a big hit in the face of a blitz, and he forgets the last int he threw)
    3. He doesn't suck!!!l(Like most others have here since Marino)

    He is learning he will be able to Contol games.

    Pocket presence I think he understands you dont have to cross the LOS to be mobile.

    He himself is a weapon not like River who needs a clean pocket or Newton who is a runner but balanced.

    1. He is confident and is not afraid to make difficult throws.
    2. He has a strong arm if he needs to use it, specifically for fast throws as opposed to using it for long throws.
    3. I have not seen any terrible play from him. Sure mistakes and interceptions, but nothing that makes me think he as deep issues anywhere. There was the tipped passes week one but I have not seen them since.

    Besides all the talent in the world...there have been alot of qbs who were talented freaks who never paned out (tim couch, david carr) My three that makes him so great are:

    Cockiness: Hes confident with all his throws, isnt afraid to get hit, and isnt afraid to make mistakes
    Professionalism: He has a drive to be the best, you see that in his work ethic, and the way he carries himself, and carries himself with class

    Last and not least: (actually the most important part in a successful nfl qb)

    He Enjoys to play the game: He plays loose and loves the competitive atmosphere, he has a drive to win, but you can see when he plays hes just having fun

    I like that he is an intelligent quarterback, able to read defenses and put the team in the right play. That is huge for a rookie quarterback. I love that he's improving each week. I love his upside and can't wait to see what he can become with a legitimate big-play wide receiver and better play at the tight end position.

    1. Pocket Presence.-Something that really needs to be natural in a QB.
    2. Brain- Seems to be able to digest a lot already.-Something that is again a born in trait.
    3. Seems to really be having fun. I want a guy that either is ultra competitive or really loves playing the game.

    I like that he's not Chad Henne
    I like that he's not Pat White
    I like that he's not John Beck


    Do you want me to continue backward until we get to Marino?

    You really don't even have to scramble to be mobile. Hell, Marino was one of the most mobile QB's ever, it was his ability to evade the pass rush by stepping up or sliding to the left or right. He just felt the pass rush wherever it was and it is a very, very good trait for a QB to have.

    I also love his ability to read the defense and audible out of the play. Haven't seen that from any of the QBs this franchise has had since Marino.

    I like that he is a former receiver and has the ability to teach the new offense to the team. I have not seen the deer in the headlights look.

    1. first and foremost unlike with qbs in the past I do not wait with baited breath everytime tannehill drops back to pass.
    2. I actually believe at some point he is going to win some of these close ones.
    3. he elevates the play of the guys around him. You can't tell me tannehill hasn't made brian hartline alot better. Now that teams have to fear our passing attack they can't load up the box. This has made regginald better. Heck not turning the ball over every 4 passes like a.j feeley keeps the defense out of the short field, so he's evebn made the defense better.
