  • Florida Based QB's

    NFL HQ is doing a poll on Twitter asking the following question - "Which Florida based QB has the best shot to lead his team to the playoffs next season?"

    Ryan Tannehill - 17%

    Blake Bortles - 54%

    Jameis Winston - 29%

    Good for Tanehill to stay under radar and not have that pressure. Love it!
    The deeper the roots, the higher the reach.

      I can't really disagree with the results (Sad but true!).....Here's one guy who definitely thinks the Bucs have what it takes in Winston to not only make the playoffs but to win it all:

        I don't see all the love for the Jags. They had a top 5 pick this year, drafted two good defensive players one of which is already hurt and the other was already injured and now they're going to the playoffs?? My bet is they still have a top 10 pick next year.
        While it takes two to have an argument, it only takes one to walk away.

          I don't follow the Jags or Bucs closely enough to know if they have issues on their offensive line or holes on their teams here or there, but going off what I watched last season from all three teams and QB's I happen to agree with this poll.

          I think the Jags are a solid team and that if Bortles can match or improve on his season last year they should make the playoffs. The Jags and Bucs are both improving where they need to, have found their franchise quarterbacks, and drafted well and used this offseason to make their teams stronger. JMO

            Jags, have put a nice roster together and lay in a weak division, so I could see them making some noise.

            Tampa still needs pieces on the defense and play in a tough division.

            I think Miami has a good shot for the playoffs. If Marsha is out 4 games the division is wide open.

              I agree on the Jags, they seem to be piecing together a strong team (in as you say a fairly weak division)...If Ramsey's injury isn't serious they should have the equivalent of 2 1st round picks added to that D.

              Not sure if the Bucs have done enough to make a run, but it's definitely looking like they've got their QB problem sussed (Brit-speak for taken care of or figured out)

              IMO, it's gonna take more than Marcia missing a few games to make the AFC East wide-open, i think they're still head & shoulders above the rest of the division though the Jets might give 'em a run for their money..To me, on paper at least, we're still in the basement looking up & until we figure out how to beat the Bills and the Jets it's where we're gonna stay, JMO...

                I can't see the NFL allowing their golden boy to miss four games. If Brady does somehow miss four games there is a good chance the Payriots could start 1-3 or even 0-4. Three of their first four teams they play are pretty good, especially on defense.

                If if the Bills and Jets figure out their QB position the division will get really tough. Both teams are solid with strong defenses. The Bills D should be stout this season.

                Tannehill will be playing behind the best o-line he has ever seen with one of the better receiving groups in the league. It's time for Tannehill to have a breakout season. With a balanced attack his numbers shouldn't matter, he just needs to take more chances further down the field while throwing less interceptions. Hopefully Gase is who they thought he was and we will see a new and improved version of Tannehill this season.

                  Silly poll to ask only about the QBs instead of which teams, in the ultimate team sport.

                  Have to think that the poll was also taking into account our schedule. Even without Brady in the 2nd game, it's a tough one.

                  Then there is also the new coaches and guys like Wake, Albert, Pouncey, and James coming back from injuries.

                  Jags have the easiest go. AFCS is a cakewalk.

                    I think the poll is basically asking which Florida quarterbacks can put their team on their back and win some games and HELP take their teams to the playoffs. Unfortunately for the Dolphins, the Jags and Bucs both have found quarterbacks that are better then what the Dolphins have, and both of these quarterbacks are just getting started. They are not in their 5th seasons and they already look head and shoulders above Tannehill. They both look like they will be separating themselves from being mentioned in the same sentence other then the fact that they play the same position and in the same state. Bortles and Winston look like they are franchise quarterbacks, whereas Tannehill, after FOUR SEASONS, still looks like he is learning the game like a rookie and few are comfortable saying he is the Dolphins franchise quarterback.

                    Hopefully Tannehill can prove his doubters wrong with a new coach, MANY improved weapons, the best o-line he has played behind, etc. If he can't do it this year the team needs to move on from him.

                      I'm not convinced Bortles or Winston either one have proven anything yet, but they did come into much better circumstances as rookies. Bortles benefits from the AFCS and Winston plays with a VG supporting cast and All-pro RB and WR. Both have much better OLs. We've also seen plenty of guys look good in their 1st or 2nd year and end up on the scrap heap like Nick Foles, Colin Kapernick, etc...

                      Meanwhile RT plays in the East and has had the likes of Columbo, Martin, Clabo, Dallas Thomas, Hartline, Bess, Legadu (no holes) Nanae, Daniel Thomas, (now back), etc... hard to think of a QB who has started his career with a worst dealt hand than ours. Last season, we finally started drafting well and this draft gave him a better cast. This season promises to the first honest opportunity he's been given.

                        When you look at the rosters he's had, I don't know that the Org has done anything but handicap him the past few years prior to firing Philbin. He had more freedom under Sherman, but less talent around him. Last season was the best receiving cast he's had, and this off-season is the only time that there has been a concentrated effort to build around him. We might as well have skipped the 2013 draft and off-season for what we got in return.

                        Anyway, we all hope Gase and his staff can get more from the offense and the defense.

                        There have been MANY players, coaches, GM's, coordinators, etc fired to suit Tannehill's wants, needs and desires. (According to the front office)

                        Nothing matters but what this team does on the field. All we can do is hope and pray that this organization has finally found their head coach who will be here for many seasons, because he is doing the right thing and winning rather then because Ross likes him or has become friends with him. This entire season is on Tannehill's back so the pressure is on and I hope he proves me and other doubters that he isn't a POS. Aha

                        There's an old IT term - garbage in, garbage out. Philbin had carte blanche for 3 years. And most of these players and coaches haven't lit the league up elsewhere since leaving. Some are no longer in the NFL and just today I think Hartline was cut by the Browns. It is what it is...

                        Hoping for the best this season. Be nice not to have these arguments and disagreements.
