Oh please.....stop trying to play it that Tannehill was seen as some top level or "may be elite QB" who was drafted by us and ruined. He was an overdrafted QB who had played WR (because he couldn't beat out 2 "just guys" who beat him out and never amounted to anything in the pros) and started only 1.5 years in college. Truth hurts but that's the way it was and we made a mistake in taking him and compounding it by sticking with him for 7 years (and when it was clearly obvious to many fans and guys here that he wasn't the guy and didn't have "it")We ruined a talented kid at QB by NOT fixing his protection or giving him any semblance of a running game, if we trade up for a QB he'll be out of football by the time his initial contract is up because of the OL. I think we have to fix both lines, unless Murray is there at 13. I also like the idea of a trade down, we need picks and young players to rebuild.
I don't bear him any ill will and wish him well...he seems like a good, decent guy and was as tough as nails (quite possibly the toughest guy on the Dolphins) but he was paid handsomely for years and didn't get it done and his time here will always be remembered as mediocre.
