    Ryan Tannehill is an elite quarterback in year 2020?

    when do you think Ryan is considered an elite quarterback? Needs Hartline and 3 others receivers, a tight end like Brandon Myers from Oakland, and maybe even Eifert or Ertz too.

    Gonna take a 2 more years at least, so 2015/2016 season at the earliest Id say. You need a few playoffs (3 or more) wins, 2:1 TD:INT ratio minimum, 65%+ completion percentage, and need to be $$$$ on 3rd down and 4th quarter. ELITE is no joke and is earned.

    P.S. You have been alllllllll over the boards today. Bored at work? lol and you should fix your title to whatever year you were trying to refer too.

    I like the optimism...but I don't know if we're in the position to be talking about this as if it's a certainty...

    Try changing it to 201X, or something.
    Back on topic: I feel that it will take at least 2-3ish years. We really need to get him some weapons this off season for him to be able to continue to progress and take that next step towards being Elite.

    I consider elite as being top 7! Right now I just want him to progress and have a few weapons around him and see what happens! I will play the game and say 2015 or 2016!

    Not concerned with Tannehill being elite. He just needs to be solid. If he becomes elite, then even better.

    He'll be considered good in 2014. You need to at least get to a superbowl to be considered elite, that's probably never happening with Ireland running the show.

    If I had to pick I would say never....Not that it can't happen but the odds are against it. Elite to me is top 5ish.....and yes the thread title is very easy to understand. Not sure why anyone would not get it....lol

    I think you guys are selling Tannehill short. He consistently put the ball where only his guy could catch it. He threaded the needle forcing a great throw into a tightly covered receiver the majority of his completions. He made a few rookie bad decisions, he had several blocks and several bounced off the hands/chest of his receivers and tight ends. Very few of his potential interceptions were dropped. He was incredibly unlucky to have so many interceptions. He was the only rookie QB who wasn't surrounded with receiving help. And he still did well.

    Once we surround him with weapons, this guy can be as good as anyone in his class. Tannehill is Ireland's best pick as a Dolphin. You guys not recognizing this simply are committed to hating on him. Tannehill is the guy to build the franchise around that we have been looking for since the day Marino retired.

    I'm not worried about elite. Just above average will for now.
