    Let's start first with his 2013 stats...

    Passing
    3,913 YRDs
    24 TDs
    17 INTs

    Rushing
    238 YRDs
    1 TDs
    5 Fumbles Lost

    For my 2014 Prediction, I will try to be as realistic as possible. I truly believe Tannehill is a Top 10 QB and will prove it in 2014. We all know he has been handcuffed the last 2 seasons and may still deal with some hiccups from the o-line and a lacking running game but he has the weapons and scheme to flourish.

    Passing
    4,600 YRDs
    31 TDs
    11 INTs

    Rushing
    400 YRDs
    4 TDs
    3 Fumbles Lost

    What's your prediction?...

    I was actually just telling my buddy the other day how much potential i see in this offense. Stated that if the line holds, and Tannehill remains healthy I could easily see him going for 4500 + yards and 30 + TD's. Pretty much right where you have him. I would love to think he only throws 11 int's, but I am thinking more along the lines of 15.

    Passing
    4,550 YRDS
    33 TDs
    15 INTs

    Rushing
    480 YDs
    3 TDs
    4 Fumbles Lost

    I expect to see interception totals down. Even if you don't think that he will throw fewer interceptions with better protection and a less predictable offense that tries to get guys open rather than throw fastballs into slits, keep in mind that he threw several end of half and end of game interceptions when he was just pressing in desperation. I also expect that we will throw the ball a lot due to a limited running game and the simple fact that our best offensive skill weapons play wide receiver and H-Back. I think this offense is better designed for YAC and a high completion percentage, meaning his Y/A will shoot up.

    Ballpark guess:

    4,500 yards
    7.5 YPA
    33 TD
    10 INT

    I think he is set up to have a very, very good season. I think that it's possible he will put up even better 'fantasy' numbers than that, but we'll see. I was very impressed by what he was able to do last season with about the worst supporting cast in pro football and coaching that was (IMO) flat out incompetent. So with a better supporting cast and better coaching, I absolutely expect him to light up some fantasy scoreboards like pinball machines.

    If you think I am being far too optimistic with these numbers, that's fair. However, I've always maintained that the offense a quarterback is asked to execute has a huge impact on his statistics, and my only point of comparison right now is Nick Foles in 2013. If anything, I might be making a conservative estimate here. A lot of it depends on how much Lazor tries to implement the Chip Kelly concepts. If we really try to execute the hurry-up and can establish a running game, I think our QB is capable of putting up video game stats.

    I love the optimism. I have some concerns however, and they are the same ones we all had last year. O line and running game. If those things falter, RT will be burdened with making magic happen on 3rd and 10. This will spell disaster. Personally, I'd like him to throw for LESS yards. This would signal to me that our team was more successful. That being said, how about these stats : 3300 yards 20 td 10 int. With those stats it means a balanced attack and confident o line and a 10-6 record.

    3300 yards means we have the 32nd ranked offense in the NFL, because there's no way we're rushing for 2,500 yards.

    Copied Andy Dalton's stats huh?

    I expect better numbers because I think he is better then Dalton more specifically I expect less INTs and therfore a higher passer rating. Dalton is a good stat QB so can't be too upset with a stat comparison with his but we all know Dalton isn't going to win anything come playoff time

    OK I have a question. I am in a fantasy league that uses the old Miller Lite scoring system (league started in 1993). Basically a QB who throws 40+ TD's is the most valuable person you can have on your team. Case in point I've won the last 2 seasons with Aaron Rodgers and Peyton Manning as my QB's. Both were 2 and 1 in fantasy points for those seasons. Long story short I have the 2nd overall pick this year and I'm thinking of going Drew Brees. By the time the draft rolls around again there will be nothing but middle of the pack RB's left already (after the top 3 QB's go there's usually a run on RB's). I'm strongly considering taking McCoy or Charles 1st and stocking up on RB's and WR's then taking Tannehill late and riding him. If he really gets over 30 TD passes the move would be brilliant and obviously I would enjoy it. I just don't know if I have the balls, what do you guys think? I know he'll be around late because I live in Patsy land and pretty much everyone in my draft, less a couple guys, probably think he and the Dolphins suck.

    That's my plan. Get yourself a top RB first (McCoy, All Day, or Charles) then come back with another RB and then top WR. WRs and QBs run deep this year. RBs and TEs only have a few top guys, then they drop off big time.

    He is a versatile QB. I am hoping he gets close to that.

    64% comp pct. 5083 yards and 47 tds. 3 picks. All against the bills in week two.

    ---------- Post added at 02:33 PM ---------- Previous post was at 02:32 PM ----------

    But my real guess is 64%, 4350 yards 33 tds, and 11 ints. 3 rushing tds and 500 yards rushing.

    Actually we only had 5000 net yards ( about 3500 passing and 1400 rushing) total last year, so it's not that different.

    And we were what, 27th in total offense?

    Also keep in mind that the way passing yards are calculated, sacks count against team yards, but not individual yards. So 3,300 yards for Tannehill (who had 3,900 yards last season) would be completely disastrous.

    4500 yds....31 TD's, 18 Int's

    400 yds rushing with 3 TD's


    I see his tds going up this year but the int's staying roughly the same......with one caveat, if the Lazor's offense blossoms like it appears it will and all things click I can realistically see him being around 10 int's on the season. I am more excited about the opportunity in front of our team this season than I have in more than a decade.

    I agree with this right here in total. If he had near 4000 and 25 TD's in a bland offense with no motion and different sets, then it only makes sense for this. The TD's might just be slightly over 25 maybe because in a chip kelly offense, which this is what it is to me based on the Philly game last night, that the run game will be counted on heavily. Knowshown Mareno an X factor in this.

    Everyone who is predicting has him substantially outperforming 2013, and becoming a top QB in the league. What's the rationale? Are the pieces around him so much better, or do you just think that year #3 is when the lights go on? Is it possible that 2014 will look a lot like 2013 for him, i.e., averageness?

    The rationale is that the o-line looks better so far than last year and the scheme looks to be very fitting for Tannehill. He will be put into situations to succeed rather than trying to force a style that the team can't execute.

    Great points. However, our run blockers showed us last year they couldn't block worth a damn in short yardage situations. I have no faith that they will be better at it this season. Tannehill has shown that he's very good throwing the football in the tight red zone; in fact, I think that's one of his biggest strengths as a quarterback. I think that when we get in close, there will be a lot of play action passes, bootlegs, and rollouts resulting in a lot of RT touchdown passes and a few runs.

    He threw for 3900 yards and 25 TDs last season. That was with garbage pass protection, an offensive coordinator that I think just about everyone here agrees did a lousy job, no running game, and his most reliable wide receiver out for half of the season.

    I think that if Bill Lazor doesn't totally suck at calling plays, the design of this offense -- combined with much better pass protection and much more depth at receiver -- will result in significant statistical improvements for the QB. You combine that with a subpar running game and you have a recipe for a QB who should put up big numbers.

    If you don't think coaching matters, go watch a replay of last night's Eagles/Steelers game. Mark buttfumble looked like a good quarterback last night running the Chip Kelly offense. Mark. ****ing. buttfumble.
