In passing TDs with 2 after 5 games
on pace for 6 for the season...any concerns???
None at all...we've been opting to run it in whenever we're close. Tanny is the real deal
It just so happens that everytime we score a TD it's because a runningback took it in on a running play. Most of our TDs are 5 yards or less from the endzone so we're running the ball at that point.
Im concerned that you might be a ****ing troll bro. But, other than that.... no.
Stats don't matter. You've made this point like 10 times before starting your own thread.
what you want to see is him improving week to week. Limiting mistakes and making plays. And every single week, hands down, he has improved - and tremendously at that. With what he has around him, he is looking great.
just my opinion.
It's obvious that Tannehill is a better QB right now then what Henne was after 2 full seasons in the NFL. No comparison.
None at all we are still.scoring aren't we
Would be hilarious if the Dolphins made the playoffs while RT finished the year with 8 TDs
its all part....of your rock n roll fantasy
Not concerned since we have 9 rushing touchdowns. The team is scoring when it gets close, they are just doing it on the ground. As long as Tannehill is moving the offense and the ball is being put in the endzone, I don't care if he throws it or they run it in.
Ill respond to this stupid comment the same way I did when you made the stupid comment in another thread. You think that might have to do with the fact we never let him throw the ball inside the 10 unless its 3rd down and everyone knows he's going to pass the ball? We have, what 10-11 rushing TD's? We also lack any kind of red-zone threat. Bess and Hartline for all they've done this year, do NOT create mis-matches inside the redzone. Neither is a physical presence. While most teams use playaction on 1st and goal to get an easy passing td, we just pound the ball, which works most the time but not all the time. Tough to get passing TD's when you never let you QB throw the ball in the endzone inside your 10 and the few times you do its 3rd down. Also tough to get long passing touchdowns when you dont have a WR who can create on his own. His lack of TD's has nothing to do with his ability. You actually watch the games or just follow the statline? Its no coincidence that both of his TD passes have come outside the 10 yard line. QB's get the majority of their TD passes inside the 10-15 yard line. Tannehill doesnt get that benefit.
No, at least not yet... cause that's only part of the story:
he's also #15 in total yds/ 16 in yds/attempt and 17 in yds/game. So long as he moves us into scoring positions and continues to entrust the lead to his kicker and defenders, I can live with this for a rookie with 5 starts.
After reading your game day analysis and reading this thread I was waiting for your response. classic!!!!
6,500 posts grow the f*** up
I'd be concerned if we had receiving weapons that are a true threat especially inside the 10. When your best target in those scenario is Fasano, I would not expect big TD numbers. No cut on Fasano as he's solid overall, but far from an elite go to threat.
Even with what we have, I pretty sure you'll see the TD passes pick up as the season progresses.
Nope.. we're running in the redzone more, and a lot of our td's are coming on the ground.. Tannehill was very efficient today, and has thrown very well against the blitz. The yards and percentages are there, and passing TD's will come.. I like what I see with Tannehill, and I think it's only the beginning of what we're going to see from him.
Yes, the Dolphins should trade him immediately. Are you kidding? He just got done playing only his fifth NFL game, a win on the road, and he has improved every week. It looks like the sky is the limit with him and you think we should be concerned? Amazing.
What's amazing is your over the top reaction to a very simple question
and yes I'm still concerned
This thread is about herp with a bit of derp
And considering he should be 4-1 in those first 5 games is ****ing impressive. Only somebody who doesnt watch the game or has no common sense at all would concern themselves with his lack of TD passes. As mentioned by everyone with a clue, the Dolphins dont even TRY to throw the ball in the endzone. If they were doing what other teams did and were running playaction on 1st and 2nd down inside the 10 and we still weren't getting passing TD's and instead were settling for FG's it'd be a different story. And thats not even mentioning the fact we dont have a redzone threat to throw to.
When was the last time Miami called a pass thrown into the end zone? You know when we get the ball down at the 5 yard line, it's going to be five runs. And hey, it's working.
you act like he has red zone threats or even 1 deep zone threat please stop posting dumb **** when we have a load of rushing TDs. Watch the game not the stats. When we're in the redzone sherman calls running plays within 5 yards of the endzone and score Tannehill get us to the redzone and closer for rushing Tds. This is no where near a concern
He won tonight and that matters...
Not even an ounce of concern.
as long as we win i dont care. he really doesnt have alot to throw to in the red zone
Tannehill won't be perceived as a TOP QB if his stats aren't up to par with the TOP QBs. Right now, with his stats being pedestrian, people that don't watch Tannehill as much as we do would infer from his statline that he's a below average QB.
Name a QB with below average stats that was considered a TOP QB. Tannehill needs to get his TD passing up. I agree with OP.
I think more important than how many TDs Tannehill has is how few turnovers. Miami has a solid defense and running game. Much like Alex Smith with SF if Miami doesn't gift wrap the game for the other team we can compete with anyone...we even did well against Houston in Houston until the turnovers.
I could care less about the amount of touchdowns HE'S scored. I care about how many times he's led us down the field, and WE'VE scored.
We are a run orientated team with few passing threats to go all the way, so the concern is on the receivers, not on Tannehill. A good running game can take you quite far, but not far enough, the next step is getting Tannehill better targets.
If the NFL was judged like Fantasy Football I'd be worried,but Tanny was spreading the football all over the place today being the field general Miami needs.
Shut up you stupid troll. Go cry about it to someone else. Annoying little troll. Derp
Yeah sure....and he needs to not be a Rookie playing his 5th game in the NFL........Oh wait...he is a rookie playing his 5th game in the NFL:crazy:
As long as he gets to where it looks like hes heading who gives a rats *** how the national media perceives him. .
Dude you may want to re think your reply. It was a valid question no reason to blow a gasket and start tossing insults.
None at all.......who gives a rats butt....if we run it in for a TD instead of passing it in for a TD. The Phinz O is ranked in the top 10 (I believe) so who cares as long as we score.......and win
This guy here.
Nothing but stats for you. No matter what the argument you throw numbers out there.
Such a shame.
If it continues for the whole season, then the answer is yes. I have no concerns for this being the case in his 5th game in the NFL.
Tannehill is TOP 5 in QBR for the last 2 combined games. Only Brady and Manning have been better.
Not worried about the stats on the wins and the experience this kid is gaining!
He's a rookie, so one must be easy on him. I still don't think he's the future. Another Jay Fiedler at best.
Another dafuq? moment.
Ok let that be the last time anyone mention Tannehill and Henne in the same breath
Jay Fiedler???? LOL! The kids got more moxie and strength than Fiedler ever did. Worst.......comparison.......ever.....
Now thats gonna leave a mark.
I think we can all agree that Jeff Ireland is to blame for that, so far.
None what so ****ing ever.
You see the clowns he is throwing to?
No number 1 WR, No real deep threat, No real TE, backup RB that blows...
T is for turrible(Barkley)
R is for tard
O is for on drugs
L is for lost
L is for LOL
It is concerning because it's one aspect of the game that he hasn't shown an aptitude for. I realize we've been running the ball a ton in the red zone, but that's partially because right now Tannehill just hasn't shown enough in that tight window to merit going with him over the running game which has proven effective. Tannehill wasn't very good in the preseason in the red zone either.
I know people look at the poise, accuracy, and the yardage and are very happy with Tannehill. I'm of course very pleased with that, but red zone scoring potential is what separates QB's in this league. We saw how much our team could be held back by poor RZ production in the past (in fact it was almost exclusively our achilles heel) so I don't see how people can act like it can't be an issue.
I'll take 200+ yards 0 TDs and 0 INTS and a win over 400+ yards a TD, mutiple INTS and a loss from Tannehill for the rest of the season.
