    Just hope he can take it to the next level. As he does not get enough respect in the league.

    "At the same time, however, he is not the product of Adam Gase. Gase has just given him a scheme that allows him to breathe"

    Something that stuck out. I'm so glad Philbin saw his former team make playoffs. Coaching matters.

    Sure coaching matters, but I would also say coaching experience matters. It seems to be working in Gase case, but I hate Miami going through a string of several head coaches that had zero head coaching experience when they took the job. Expecting Philbin or Sporano to have grasp on what they were doing right out the box is like expecting a 4th round rookie qb to be ready for the NFL. Sure it can happen but it's unrealistic. And young players can learn from vets on the team, but raw coaches only have the knowledge of experience gained... and that often shows you what's wrong but not how to correct it,

    i quit reading that link after those three horribly unfair "examples" of Parker letting Tanny down. any of those would have been GREAT catches on well thrown balls.

    dont think that guy knows anything about football.

    btw, i DO think Tanny us way underrated.

    Parker does have a way of looking simply horrid on some balls that he misplays in the air or simply doesn't dominate at catch point. Those three examples aren't even the worst ones. Everyone puffs Parker as a major alpha WR but it's never been shown to me yet. If he's alpha, he's a Miami Dolphins alpha in the long line of Hartline-esque alphas.

    Great article.

    Man, this guy is not a friend of WR Parker. Absolutely destroys him. As for the Tannehill stuff, only the die-hards that hate him doesn't already know what's written in the article.

    Those were well thrown balls. That's the point. The first one was positioned great for Parker to catch and it even hit his hands. The second was a scramble but was put in an open area for Parker to make a play. The third, imo, was the only one that I would put as "difficult to catch" for a guy with Parker's skill set.

    That was a good read....Thanks for the Post...I have always felt that Tannehill was a good pick...IMO the only knock on him was he started being a QB late in his Collage career...So I have always said that he needs two more seasons to get on Par with other QB's from his draft class...He has been improving every season in spite of the coaching he has had to endure...As for Parker he has been up and down since being drafted...IMO this is the season the light goes on for the guy and he makes those catches...I think this season we make the NFL take a good hard look at playing the Dolphins as a Dayum we have to play those guys! Again!!!

    I've seen a lot of Tannehill flex threads lately. I think the consensus on the forum has found it's way to a solid medium of understanding and appreciation for Ryan Tannehill's game. He's a great QB. Period. Legit arm talent, elite decision-making, and on top of it all he's a consistent run-threat.

    Now I want continued team success. It's about more than Tannehill now, and for the record I see us as on the cusp of being a year in year out playoff team. Despite the tough schedule I think we have an opportunity to beat quality teams on big stages. We believe, now we can make the nation believe. Looking forward to seeing it all come together this year.

    Missed where Parker could have won the first Pats game on a well thrown ball... One that any top 10-15 number one wr makes for their team

    It's also a fact that last year was the first season that Ryan Tannehill had a competent coaching staff to guide him along.

    It's a bit unfair to look at his first couple of years when Tannehill had very little in terms of a supporting cast and an atrocious offensive line. Now, there is a lot of talent at the skill position and the offensive line is at least somewhere in the middle of the pack, maybe top 10 if Mike Pouncey can stay healthy. For those reasons, Tannehill's game should still click up a notch or two.

    Let's see how he is viewed after this season. I have a feeling he could be rated around top five this year if his play toward the middle of last season is an indication of things to come.

    Yes indeed, he did not go after that ball at all, just standing there waiting for it to hit his hands. Surely coaches are on his rear about this.

    So telling me he didn't earn it from his peer group after win streak last season? After a few seasons of playing with high school like rosters, seasons of getting rocked so hard he peed blood, etc...?

    Or did you mean earn from eh fans and media outlets like Omar? Let me get on the horn and make it known unless you appear on Difler's Dimes, Kurt Warner's top 5 QBs of the week, and likewise segments each week, you aren't good! People need to stop watching Aaron Rodgers and the few elite of the elite and thinking "welp that's the measuring stick" because those type of Qbs, hell players even, are rare. Would have loved to sit next to you during the years of Jay Fiedler, Cleo Lemon, AJ Feely, etc.. just to see how you acted.

    He's not underrated.

    If he was statistically, for his career, great on 3rd down down, and was consistently leading the Dolphins to high marks in terms of scoring points...then a case could be made. But that isn't the case.

    In the past it's been issues with the deep ball and pocket presence with you. Now that he's improved its 3rd down and points scored (which Is definitely a team issue, not just Tannehill). However when that improves, it will be something else. Nope, no agenda here, nosir.

    Don't be stupid, I don't have an "agenda" against Ryan Tannehill lol.

    I just said he's not 'underrated'. To date, he's just a decent starter. Nothing more, nothing less.

    He's got a clean slate under Gase from me.

    How can you trust someone's take on something if they can't even put a coherent sentence together.

    Some people are just awful spellers and do their best(have a grown family member like that), some people type so fast that the mind registers they typed a word but in reality, they really didn't, some people end up on FH after a long day/work week when they really should be sleeping and end up typing dribble that would make any man go crazy reading(I am notorious for that), etc... Rather it be my run on sentences on internet forums or Wildman's posts, the point they are trying to make gets across after a few reads, so I will never discredit something somebody says based upon their structure of the english language and how they use it. With that said, I do not agree with him, not one bit lol.

    While I think his stance on the QB is far from reality, English isn't his primary language, so lay off a bit. At least he isnt coming in here calling people names and ****.

    Oh you absolutely do. Regardless of what, 'you just said' here, your bias is painfully obvious. It's either that or you blame/credit a single position for the entire teams failure/success. I guess those aren't mutually exclusive.

    Tannehill is underrated IMO.

    He gets talked about as if his job security is up in the air every season.

    He had a 93.5 QB rating which is better than Rivers, Stafford, Flacco, Palmer, Wilson, Dalton, Winston, Palmer, Tyrod, Smith, Newton, Eli, etc..

    8 of those Qbs haven't won anything. (Cams MVP season seemed to be a fluke)

    Tannehill is severely underrated. Just my opinion.
