    No problem with this we stay focused this year without a QB controversy to cloud the facts. If the facts are ugly then there no excuses for moving on from RT or Gase.

    There will be a QB competition but it won't be public. If Tannehill comes out and ****s the bed from the gate, Osweiler will be our day 1 starter, but that seems less than likely knowing RT17's work ethic and physical prowess(let's hope he still has it)

    Tannehill doesn't need competition. He's a true pro.

    How many teams these days really have QB competition? I don’t think it’s healthy anyway at this point in the guys career. When they are rookies or guys like Fales, ok. But if your 7-8 year guy has to “prove” himself each year that means he likely doesn’t have “it”. I’m ok w no alternative here. The starter needs the support of his HC and to take the reps.

    22 QBs out of top 10 every year. How many of those HCs bring in competition?

    Competition brings out the best in all of us but at the same time guys like Ryan Tannehill are cut from a different cloth.

    Guys with 17's physical gifts and toughness don't fall of trees.

    I like knowing my QB is the alpha dog.

    And that dog is about to bite back at all who doubt him.

    For the ten thousandth time. In the NFL you don't bring in competition for your starter. You draft back ups until you don't have a starter.
    It's as simple as that. Hopefully you can understand that, maybe not.

    My gut instinct is that Tannehill's gonna come out fired up, pissed that he's missed playing time and anxious to show his teammates that the game trully had slowed down for him. Only danger is that he'll try too hard and look for contact rather than sliding etc.

    Starters don't need a qb competition. At least not a qualified highly talented one like we have. This whole notion is ludicrous.

    The only competition he needs to get motivated is across the field from him each play. Not on the sidelines.

    To be fair, I'm sure Ryan would handle the situation way better than Big Ben and Flacco are doing right now.
