    http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/writer...-tannehill-coming-into-his-own-in-crunch-timeCounting last season, his rookie season, Tannehill is now 5-2 in December with 13 touchdown passes and three interceptions.
    That's the type of thing you need from a passer as we move toward the playoffs. It's crunch time, and Tannehill is coming up big.
    To get an idea as to why, I went back and studied a bunch of his games, some early in the season as well as he last three. What I saw was a quarterback who has ditched some bad habits -- patting the ball for one -- and has taken on a calmness in the pocket.
    It helps that the offensive line is playing better, but Tannehill seems so much more sure of himself as he sits in the pocket and makes his reads. He always had the big arm. But now he waits to use it rather than just firing at the first moving target. The patience is his biggest plus now. In the past, he lacked it.
    That's how you can tell the game is slowing down. He sees it better. But he's also using his eyes to influence defenders, which he didn't do much of as a rookie and struggled with some early this season.

    Wow, that is the highest praise I've ever seen Prisco direct at anything Dolphins related. Even the h8ters are coming around.

    Prisco - Tannehill was the overlooked passer in last year's rookie class. It was all about Robert Griffin III, Andrew Luck and Russell Wilson. Only Wilson is having a better second season.

    it's called development prisco...at least people get to see some of that holding the safety with his eyes stuff and throwing with anticipation i have been talking about with the kid...that move to the left and bullet to wallace was really nice...so was that 22 yarder to wallace on the sideline...boss plays

    anyways brady pats the ball sometimes too even to this day so prisco should look for other things he was doing prior to bang on...maybe having one hand on the ball in the pocket for instance...

    and you're getting evidence now of going from presnap reads to post snap adjustments and making plays that way too...all it takes is the kid putting up numbers for media people to start to take notice i guess

    In the Gif Clabo should have gotten help from Jerry and let Pouncey and Brenner double the NT. That will need to be cleaned up this week. Good write up though.

    Love it. He's the franchise savior, and because of him we won't have to continue this vicious cycle of gm, coaching, and roster turnover that dooms so many teams

    This. I am so amazed at people who criticized Tannehill like he was a finished product, as if they've never seen football in their lives. The number of quarterbacks that were great from the get-go in history is tiny. But, anyone with analytical skills could project and see what Tannehill could be. Strong arm. Bright kid. Hard worker. Leader now. Athleticism. Toughness. Hangs in the pocket and is not afraid of being scraped off the field. He's still not a finished product, but for the simple fans they are seeing results that more sophisticated fans could see coming by using analytical skills.

    I'll wait for sustained numbers. The last seven games are promising, but he needs a couple seasons of overall high-level play before the book should be closed in my opinion.

    more lazy "journalism", he talks about how he has done but all the examples are from last week. he was GREAT last week vs. NE, he wasn't the previous weeks against us and Pitt.

    More Myopic Homerism: Deluding yourself that your QB who handed off to Shonne Greene for a 58yd TD run, go 12-23, sub 60QBR, 4.34YPA making 4 less first downs and actually scoring less than the avg pts SD defense gave up, while watching SD's choke kicker crap the bed on a makeable long and 2 easy FGs in balmy SD actually did anything to help his team eke out a 3pt playoff game win, let alone that "played well."

    it's funny, your RB ran for 55 yds setting up the GW TD in Pitt
    NE's K missed a big kick last week

    Funny how you don't mention that.

    I AM envious, I wish we were going to the playoffs. Ryan looks like he can be pretty good, I wish we had a QB like that right now(we had one a couple of years ago) so yes I am envious. There's nothing wrong w/ that but unlike you I won't come here making a million different excuses why you won. I didn't mention the missed FG, the non flags. I gave you credit for winning, I gave Ryan credit for a great game. You should take notes.

    No you make excuses trying to discredit a QB who's maturing before everyone else's eyes. And you used that 55 yard DT run (which you called a 60 yarder) yesterday in another thread to diminish the winning drive vs a **** LeBeau D on the frozen tundra, without mentioning that it was the third gainer in between 2 other passes and an actual Red Zone TD pass to score while giving buttfumble credit in 09 for handing off to Greene for a straight 53yd score with no other work on the backend as part of the jest 17-14 "masterpiece". Oh and if y ou wanna talk about penalties not called, take a close look at the flagrant hold on Wake on that TD pass to Edelman that should have been called back. Long way of saying, if your own dreamboat can't withstand the same criticism you make for Tannehill, then either admit that he played a **** game in the 09 playoffs or don't make that criticism cuz it's hypocritical. /School is out

    I am not the excuse maker, I was making a point. When we missed 2 Fgs in the '09 title game it was part of the game but SD misses 2 makeable kicks in the div rd and that's why we won. all he does is make excuses, I was pointing out he should use the same (lack of) logic that he displays w/ us.

    don't worry, I'll be banned from this thread too so you guys can pretend Ryan is the 2nd coming of Brady.

    if you actually read I haven't said anything negative. Remember, when you guys went through that losing streak and everyone was jumping ship it was MYSELF that was pumping everyone up telling him there is a long way to go.

    I said Ryan was GREAT on Sunday b/c he was, he was NOT the 2 weeks prior despite excellent #s and you know this as well.

    Now it's a **** lebeau D as if that is a vintage Steeler D:lol:

    as usual the only times you are funny are the times you are trying to be serious.

    I was talking facts, that "game winning" drive was a handoff for a long run then a great play by Clay on a short pass. You guys act like Ryan led "the drive II"

    TD should have been called back:lol: but I bet those 2 hold/PIs in the EZ that weren't called were legal, right? :lol:

    You are funny(unintentionally of course)

    ---------- Post added at 03:22 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:22 PM ----------

    go back and read the posts while everyone was jumping ship.

    The problem w/ the homers here is if I don't say this is the next dynasty and Ryan is the next Brady then I am bashing. it's pretty sad actually.

    They have pretty much nailed you on TGG:
    1. If Sanchez put up those numbers vs PBurgh and lost you'd have raved about his stats
    2. If Sanchez put up those numbers vs PBurgh and won, you'd have raved about his stats
    3. If Sanchez loses a game it's because of his poor supporting cast (even blaming the D for allowing an opponent all of 14pts in a loss )
    4. If any other QB wins a game, it's because of their supporting cast
    5. If any other QB loses a game, it's despite their supporting cast.
    6. Rex will end up with 4 out of 5 non-winning seasons (when playing opposing starters) yet it's not his fault due to what he has to work with
    7. yet Tannenbaum was a good GM, despite what he gave Rex to work with.

    Your excuse-making spin is so recognizable on TGG, I'm just surprised it's taken so long for some to figure you out here. The irony is that you are the biggest homer on both boards .

    Only a completely delusional person (aka Jets fan) could really believe that this body of work:

    Mark buttfumble career stats
    MSanchezCareer.PNG

    is comparable to this:

    Ryan Tannehill career stats
    RTCareerStats.PNG

    Mark buttfumble's career highest season rate was in his 3rd year and it was only slightly higher than RT's Rookie Year! In four seasons buttfumble barley threw for as many yards as Tanny's rookie season. Never had a season completion rate as high as RT's rookie year. buttfumble over his career actually has MORE INTERCEPTIONS than TOUCHDOWNS.... He was FRACKING TERRIBLE! How do you not see that?

    People that understand the game don't look at blind #s, mark 2010 was significantly better than Ryan 2013. Ryan may end up being better and he's certainly better than mark was last year but he also has more weapons than mark ever had.

    From my memory, Priscoe has been a Tannehill supporter throughout, so I don't get the cynicism. Could be wrong....

    That is absolutely absurd. In 2010 Sanchez was hot early but was pretty pedestrian to AWFUL the rest of the way. When he's playing well he's was like the poor man's Trent Dilfer when he's playing bad he's just fracking horrible. Tannehill, on the other hand, was good early but struggled a little in a few games (NEVER as bad as Sanchez) and is now playing excellent in December.

    Actually considering one actually had a 13-3 record, won a division, a conference and made it to the SB, and with their almost identical winning records percentages and throwing stats, while both lost their jobs and are destined to a short shelf life as a hanger-on...buttfumble is a poor man's Rex Grossman.]

    My point is that if you're gonna glorify buttfumble in the playoff gift in SD for what you are excoriating Tannehill who actually looked better and did more in the PBurgh win, have ever called buttfumble a top 10QB while at the same time acknowledging he was 27th ranked in the league, would not trade him for any QB outside of maybe the top 5, let alone 2 draft picks, and totally overlook the fact that without Polian's charity, he'd have 1 winning season in 4...... your opinion on any other QB including an envious one of Tannehill should be suspect cuz you've already proved you don't know what the **** you're talking about

    More weapons? WTF you talking about? Only weapon according to most talking heads Tannehill had was Wallace. Clay and Hartline were considered sub par when the season started and everyone said the team was doomed when Keller got injured. Gibson has been Injured.
    And the RBs leave much to be desired.

    Jets of 2010 had Greene and Tomlinson as RBs a set of WRs in Holmes, Edwards, and Cotchery, and a TE with Keller aboard. Not to mention the O-line was way better than Miami has had this whole season.

    So don't give us all this garbage of how Tannehill has more weapons, cause that's just plain ignorant.

    You hit the nail right on ex head the man... Right on the head. June is great at twisting and turning any argument to his side and so obvious when he does you can touch it. It's very tangible. He still clings on to a season that happened three years ago and tries to myopically incorporate them into a debate, using old and outdated statistics. You don't need statistics to see tannehill is light years ahead of where buttfumble was in his second year. Junc will always try to argue against, but will always be unsuccessful and annoying

    If you can't SEE the difference between EVERY post-Marino Dolphins QB and Ryan Tannehill with your own eyes, then it's no wonder you are so reliant on stats.

    I rely on them for confirmation or disconfirmation of what I believe I'm seeing, similar to the NFL referee who uses instant replay to confirm or disconfirm what he believed he saw, or to find out there's no conclusive evidence either way.

    Uh... no you didn't. Sanchez couldn't hold Tannehill's jock.
