    If we plan on paying him a year before his contract is up this next draft and free agency period is going to have to be played really smart.

    he's only got a 4 year deal right cause of the haggling over that offset language...i believe he signed for 4 years as the compromise to the language...sure wish it was a 5 year pact...then we could wait til the 4th to get the extension done and be stealing with a low cap # at the most critical position the next 2 years...

    a like $3.5 mil per year cap hit with that qb is a felony charge

    No way you can do better than RT in the draft or FA. Argue something else. Argue how to make him better with play calling and design. Argue how to make him better with improved pass pro. Argue how he can improve his technique.

    Don't argue he should be replaced because he is better than anyone available.

    BTW, he had a very good season, just a rotten end. It puts a bad taste in a fan's mouth.

    To be honest I like him a lot the only major issue I have with Tanny is his deep ball accuracy. Hopefully he works on that extensively this off season

    Overall Tannehill did have a good season, imo. The continuing inability to connect on long passes, however, especially down the sidelines, is both alarming and infuriating. I really want to believe it is just the last piece of the puzzle that will eventually fall into place as he fully matures but at this point, I just don't know if it is going to happen for him. He has already proven that he can win games, and getting the O-line mess straightened out (along with the running game) will definitely make his life easier. However, if he is ever going to make a real jump into the upper echelon level of starting QBs, he must hit those deep balls with far more regularity. If not, we'll keep seeing many more of those heart attack inducing games where the offense either does just enough to win or completely craps the bed.

    Yessir. The people suggesting we sign Freeman, Vick, etc or draft Johnny freaking Manziel are moronic.
