he'd be worth more wins w/o a doubt. he was a much better QB than Ryan is, that's not even debatable. a healthy Chad P was a really good QB.I'm not sure any QB could make Dallas Thomas look better and nobody is disputing that RT has had some bad games in his career, but the insinuation that 08 CP could somehow be plugged into this offense and it would somehow be worth a few more wins is ABSURD.

Ryan has improved each year no doubt about it. It's one of the reasons I said you may keep Philbin so you don't give him a 3rd system in 3 years BUT at some point the man has to step up ion a big game. Put all the excuses aside(valid or not) and go out and make plays to give his team a chance. He didn't do it last year and he hasn't done it this year. I still wouldn't give up on him but that is alarming.In terms of time to make decisions yes. Chad was very smart with the football. Tannehill has come a long way with his decisions. Not to that level yet but he's young.
