    hell it was shown that the OL was told to use different techniques each week, proper coaching will help a lot, hopefully get something out of guys we haven't seen anything out of yet,

    Exactly, and as bad as it sounds, a part of me hopes they don't fix the line and draft a Tua type just to prove the point, albeit only a small part of me hopes that as a fan. If the Oline does not get fixed, then will they blame the Qb or the line?

    Defensive players are drafted and paid to pressure QBs.
    Every QB faces pressure MOST of the time.
    RT had his shot. He’s similar to David Carr and Rob Johnson. No pocket awareness and takes too many unnecessary sacks

    What point?

    That a rookie can't prosper behind a suspect oline?

    We had a QB for 7 years that proved that yo be the case.

    Are you a Dolphins fan, or a Tannehill fans...you sound clearly the latter.

    I've long said one of Tannehill's biggest flaws was reading Ds and setting protections. That said, EVERY Miami QB suffered from seemingly inept blocking schemes, so I can't blame Tannehill exclusively. Even simple stunts were beyond their capabilities. I think it was overwhelmingly a coaching problem.

    Effort? While i won't argue that sometimes it does feel that way I would argue it's more coaching. How many times have you watched the OL and said lack of effort vs. that OLman had no idea who to block on that stunt? How many times have you said "sink your damn hips before you get ran over?" etc

    Do you read? The point is exactly that! NO QB especially a rookie CANNOT prosper behind poor Oline play and lousy coaching! Are you a Dolphins fan or an Oline excuse maker? Sounds like the latter.

    So David Carr had a decent to good Oline? Again it goes to my POINT. If the OLine does not get fixed and they draft the supposed saviour\Eliet QB and he takes sacks or gets hurt and the Offense does not perform who gets the blame this time?

    Will you blame the Oline or the QB since it is not Thill?

    The entire offense was near the bottom of the NFL so blame everyone associated with it from the owner on down. It damn sure isn't all Tannehills fault because the whole thing was a failure of epic proportions. But, Tannehill's flaws never improved in time as they do with all other QB's I've ever seen. The injuries made him a different player imo. He never hit his 2016 stride ever again. He's a quality guy and was a good soldier for the Dolphin's so I wish him luck going forward. So we have Fitz, that's cool but we need to get a QB on a rookie contract who can play. I think we'll draft one in this draft. It would be great if we could snag and develop a guy that works out in our system ala Brady. There are some QBs that we will be able to draft that I like but I guess it remains to be seen who Grier and Coach Flo like.

    Why does it matter whether he’s a dolphin fan or Tannehill fan, what he said was the truth.
