Why would I bench Eli Manning, a 9 year veteran with 2 SB rings for a poor first half when he has proven time and time again over the course of NINE years that he's one of the most capable QB's in the NFL, especially in the 2nd half, particularly the 4th quarter? You are comparing Tannehill to him if you think they deserve to be held to the same standards at the current stages of their career. Matt Moore is a very capable backup QB, one that built a rapport with most of this team last season and a proven leader . . . if Tannehill for whatever reason laid an egg in the first half, be it still injured or just struggling, if coach Philbin believes Matt Moore gives him a better chance to win the game in the 2nd half, I'd fully support that decision . . . and I'd hope we drafted Ryan Tannehill knowing he had the mental toughness to go thru tough times, including being benched. If something like that would in a sense "ruin" Tannehill, then hell maybe he isn't the QB we all think him to be. Tannehill no question is the most important piece on this team, but we have 52 other players and coaches that have busted their azz this year and deserve to be put in the best situation to win and a fanbase that pays good money to watch this team in hopes of making the playoffs. I'd want my coach to feel confident in making the decision to put his team in the best position to win this game.
