    Used to love reading how much better Tannehill and Wallace were getting on their deep ball connection. Just never happened. Didn't help that Mike had zero catch radius. If it didn't drop into his hands, it wasn't getting caught. Wallace is still effective as his 1,000 yds last proved, but he is what he is and he's not going to change. I love our trio. Parker and Stills can definitely go out and get the deep ball, even if it's not perfectly thrown. They go make plays.

    Tannehill was the best redzone qb in the NFL last year.

    How about improving being 31st in the NFL IN TOTAL FIRST DOWNS?
    Or 31st in converting 3rd downs to first downs

    Rogers had 31 tds with 0 interceptions inside the 20
    Ryan had 11 with 0 interceptions

    The 10 is in the red zone. Closer we got more Tannehill sucked while Moore was 7 for 7 4 TDs

    I don't understand the argument. Tannehill was the best red zone QB in the NFL. Unless you have an agenda what's the problem? You can't refute that

    I don't really get it, what is the debate here? Factually, it is correct to say that Ryan Tannehill had the highest passer rating of any NFL quarterback in 2016 on plays that started inside the opposing team's 20 yard line.

    Ryan Tannehill looked great last year before he got injured. I, along with many Dolfans, wanted to see him "will" us to the playoffs last year when it mattered most. Matt Moore did that in RT's absence. I have no doubt Tannehill would have done the same thing. We have a good QB. Let's protect him and go win a Super Bowl or 2 while he's young.

    So I take it you want Moore to be the starter.

    No he's just much better in the red zone. Tannehills red zone cautiousness has always been his biggest weakness needs to improve

    LOL, some people man.

    The redzone is inside the 20, if you can't even get that right then there's no point in continuing the conversation.

    Whatever. I'm sure if/when he does improve this there'll be plenty of you looking for something else to be 'concerned' about.

    Exactly. I love how these myths of Tannehill's weakness are constantly debunked with his deep ball concerns being the most prevalent among the less informed, but there's still someone out there with a sticking point of, "Oh yeah, well within this 10 yards of space, Matt Moore . . ." GTFOH.

    Remember when the detractors said that all the sacks were Tannehill's poor pocket awareness? Yeah, that has been proven wrong too.

    Haters gonna hate.

    When people claimed tannehill had the worst deep ball of all time I said it was BS as he was pretty good at it

    Now he is suddenly elite at it? No. Pretty good

    I don't think anybody claimed it was elite but I certainly would put him in the top 10 as far as deep passers go

    Although his pocket presence has improved, having a consistent pocket to step up in without rushers from multiple angles has certainly helped. Lets hope Gase won't wait as long to jettison his linemen if they provide bottom of the barrel play ala Thomas, Douglas and Turner next season.

    He's 23rd in passing TDs in the red zone. Who cares if he completes 75% of his check downs between the 20 and 10 he does not score TDs. Never has he's too protective of the football. I'm sure it was coaching from Philbin. Gase needs to encourage him to sling it more. You can say he was best in QBR but that is ridiculous. Rogers had 31 TDs and O ints in the red zone to Ryan's measly 11. Colin kaepernick had 13tds and O ints. Ryan is the best red zone qb if you like settling for fgs

    Well how much of that is due to a better OL? Sure he had issues taking sacks but when you can't rely on any of your OK it happens

    Just because Tannehill didn't throw a TD doesn't mean we didn't get a TD. We had a bunch of rushing TDs and I would bet good money we had a lot more red zone rushing TDs then green bay. So basically you want to punish Tannehill for us running it in instead. It's a team game

    Terrible argument.

    A WR was GB starting RB for half a year, don't think they ran the ball in the redzone much if any.

    Got use attempts as well.
