It's not about how good the QB is. It's about how well his skill set meshes with the skill set of a given WR. Hartline puts up good numbers, because his favorite route to run is Tannehill's favorite route to throw - sideline comeback. Brandon Marshall would have been great with Tannehill - too bad the staff didn't see it. I'm not blaming Tannehill for Wallace sucking. I'm blaming the staff for thinking that Wallace and Tannehill would be a good combination.You really have no idea what you are talking about do you? Now your argument is that Kevin Kolb and John Skelton are the equal of Kurt Warner? WTF?
Your attempted point (totally unsupported by facts) was that even a WR as great as Fitzgerald can be held back by poor QB play. This was yet another thinly veiled attempt at blaming Tannehill for all the team's problems (in this case Wallace's relative ineffectiveness).
Seriously, you are embarrassing yourself.
Stafford is pure garbage, but in between his 50 to's per season (alert, I'm being facetious), he has the arm to get Calvin Johnson the ball. Same was true for Kolb and Skelton. Andy Dalton isn't very good, but he can get the ball to AJ Green. Cris Chambers had a fantastic year with Gus Ferotte as his QB. Fiedler was a better QB than Ferotte (maybe not by a ton), but Chambers was never as successful with Fiedler. The point is that it's not Wallace's fault that the staff overestimated Tannehill's ability to hit the deep pass. Wallace is what he is - a WR who is extremely dangerous if he has a QB that can get him the ball deep. I think he'll have a much better season, because a decent OC will find other ways to get him the ball and utilize his speed. He should kill on deep crossing routes, and Tannehill throws that pass well.
