He really wasn't that good under Philbin either and it doesn't say a lot for the QBs we've had since Marino if that's your opinion, which has merits but personally I would go with Pennington, made of glass, tail end of his career, noodle arm and all, hell the half season of Matt Moore starting was more consistent success than we ever had under Tanny.No, I'm just a realist. I actually see the entire game and realize this team is terrible. The focus on RT as THE problem with the franchise just gets tiring because it is so inaccurate. This team has a terrible owner. I have said numerous times they will never succeed under Ross. So far, I am dead on with that assessment. The constant over the top RT rhetoric makes the fans look moronic and is mindless noise.
RT has regressed under Gase, but he is still the most talented QB to be on this team's roster since Marino. I think that much like David Carr, the failure of the front office to protect him has destroyed him. I was skeptical of his drafting being a former WR and not having been a full time starter in college, but he has talent. I have supported him, but frankly, if I were him, I would ask for a trade if possible. Seeing the OL they allowed to take the field today would be definitive evidence that the front office doesn't care about their franchise player. In truth I hope he gets to play somewhere else and maybe he can regain some confidence.

Regardless of record, the Dolphins are my team and I plan along with many others to continue to support them. Stop watching them. You will not be missed.The product the Dolphins put on the field is not worthy of your time...period.
NFL will lose more viewers...many more.
I agree that Pennington performed well, but it was just a momentary stopgap situation so it is hard to list him. Thing is, Tannehill had shown progressive improvement season over season. I believe his individual improvement created a lapse in urgency to address the protection issues that were present. As evidence, here we are in year 5 and the OL is still a MAJOR problem...we can't pass protect OR run block. Tannehill has been under 3 different offensive systems, all of which have been contradictory to each other. Coaching has all been done by first time head coaches with no veteran presence. The QB has been hit more than any other QB ever...that includes David Carr, who everyone acknowledges was completely ruined by the excessive hits he took. By any objective standard, no player would be successful under those circumstances.He really wasn't that good under Philbin either and it doesn't say a lot for the QBs we've had since Marino if that's your opinion, which has merits but personally I would go with Pennington, made of glass, tail end of his career, noodle arm and all, hell the half season of Matt Moore starting was more consistent success than we ever had under Tanny.
