    The sad reality is this guy has failed EVERY time he has had an opportunity to win with the game on the line... All the excuses in the world won't change this fact guys.

    I am not saying he is NOT the answer but I am growing more weary with every game he plays.

    Dude simply does not seem to rise to the occasion.

    Choking when you actually have a chance to win the game is the absolute exact thing that doomed Chad Henne.

    Whilst Tannehill made some bad throws, the O Line was our biggest problem offensively. Not even Aaron Rodgers could make plays when given one second to throw.

    By the way, Tannehill is a rookie ..... he is going to make mistakes.

    I think this is more worrying than all the INTS he's thrown this year. He just doesn't seem to be able to drive the team down the field when it matters most, I know he doesn't have the weapons and that probably gives him the benefit of the doubt a little here, but it hasn't even looked close.

    Tannehill may be a rookie, but when a guy chokes in every chance to actually win a game, it's not because he's a rookie, it's because he's a choke artist.

    Twice!!!

    Two interceptions under 2:00 down by only 5 on piss-poor throws. Some players games step up with the game on the line, others step down.

    Draft a QB until you have a franchise QB....we don't have one.

    It's looking more & more like we should have Out Sucked the Colts for LUCK......or.....at the very least sold the farm to move up for RG3 - Both those guys are light years ahead of Tannehill who may develop into a good QB in time but that's probably several years away.

    Hard to argue with your point but it's still too early to give up on the kid. With some good coaching and experience I still think Tannehill can be a franchise QB. Let him play out this season then get him some more weapons and see how he does next season.

    Tannehill didn't have a good game but come on watch these receivers, the lack of separation is embarrassing, Our O-line has been getting DOMINATED at the point of attack on running plays. the Bills hardly even blizted the entire game and still got a ton of pressure on tanehill.

    I'm sorry, but I am getting sick to my stomach with the "no weapons" excuse. Enough already. Bottom line is that ever since the offensive line started playing like a high school offensive line, Tannehill has lost his accuracy. Every throw is off. He is nervous in the pocket. Every pass completion feels like it should be celebrated. While the offensive line has to bear some responsibility, Tannehill has to bear some as well. He has nervous feet, he won't move out of the pocket anymore, and his throws are way off.

    Watching this team play makes me want to punch a hole in the wall.

    At 4-3, you look at the schedule and see Colts, Titans, and Bills....and allow yourself to dream about 7-3. And then you get kicked in the b@lls by this team. Nothing has changed. New coaches, new players, same results.

    That's the way it worked with Henne. A choke artist is a choke artist, regardless of if he is in college, a rookie, or a ten year vet.

    So with no run game, crappy pass blocking and no verticle threat he should singlehandedly win games for us. He's not Superman but he is and will develope to be an excellent Q.B.

    Tannehill made the powerhouse Buffalo D look all pro. Pfffffft. This game wasn't on the D it was Tannehill poor decisions and inaccurate passes. I agree the Dolphins have an uphill climb with the refs, but these losses against a crappy weak schedule indicates Tannehill is SUBPAR at this time.

    I have lost my faith in Tannehill too. I know his offensive coordinator and his receivers suck but he just can't make the plays to win games. He missed a wide open Thomas in the Indy game, threw 2 terrible streaks to Hartline in the Jet's game, and threw picks in the AZ and Bill's games. He just doesn't have that fire burning inside him that great NFL QB's have. That's just not something you can teach, you either have it or you don't. Hopefully our new GM doesn't decide to try to build around him without drafting legitimate competition.

    If every physically talented rookie QB magically learned how to stop making mistakes, then there wouldn't be any busts. Besides that, players who are CHOKE ARTIST don't usually learn how to not be choke artists.

    I think you may be right on that. It would be interesting to see what former college QBs had a losing record or history of poor finishing abilities and were able to overcome in in the NFL. I honestly can't think of one off hand. Can anybody disprove this?

    And if he turns it around. I predict some of you will either disappear or claim you backed him the whole time in true pathetic miami fan fashion.

    I think the city of Miami is too stupid to support a successful football team.

    He's clearly a loser. Cut him. Hey, just forget that he had the team in position to win other games this year that the kicker blew. Btw, the guy all you idiot freak-out reactionists like to compare Tannehill to, Henne, had a couple of drives that won games. He still turned out to suck ****. So all you short-sighted knee-jerkers need to chill out, because trust me- when it comes to QB play, you really have no idea what you're talking about.

    No, I'd gladly eat crow in my very own thread, but I just don't see it happening. I was more patient than most with Henne, but I just can't do it again with Tannehill especially since they are so similar. I do appreciate you standing up for your team and your quarterback, but I just can't have blind faith or immense patience any more.

    He does some things good.

    But it's worrying, One thing that is VERY NOTICEABLE is that he seems to lack POCKET AWARENESS.
    (when to step up, when to step to the side, when to just run) It reminds me a bit of Henne.
    He seems a step too slow to react and lacking the true quickness & mobility necessary nowadays.

    I'm don't have blind faith. I simply use common sense. The guy is a raw qb with zero weapons. He has played some good games and some bad one. I don't know what you expect of him.
