    Hmm looks like there was a problem with the link. They ranked Tannehill surprisingly high at #17.

      That's about right on point based on the very good 2014 season followed by the team implosion of last season. The hiring of Gase probably influenced that as well.

      f we can find a rushing attack and cut his attempts down to increase his efficiency, that ranking will go up into the Top 12...

        This should be a make or break year for Tannehill in my opinion. We have invested in the o-line and given him ample weapons so there are no more excuses. If we don't see significant improvement then I believe we should move on next year.

          I think he was made in 2014. It's the rest of the offense I want to see perform... ;-)

        I believe the potential for him to climb to 10-13 is more likely than him to drop the same number going into the 20s. That just me.
        The deeper the roots, the higher the reach.

          Actually, IMO being ranked 17 is a bit lower than i thought he'd have been ranked..That's even worse than the middle of the road, so according to this, he's worse than average...

            A guy on the NFL Network was talking about his ranking this morning. He used the analogy of his ranking like giving an opinion to a friend about an ok restaurant or hotel, mentioning that if it is not that good but not horrible, you just tell your friend the restaurant is Tannehill.

            It got a pretty good laugh out of me.

            Cuch, I appreciate your optimism when it comes to Ryan and I really hope you're right. I'm a huge proponent of establishing a dominant run game. It will definitely force the Quarterback to be more efficient but will also open up opportunities to hit on more big plays (scoring plays?) down field. I think the inflated number of pass attempts in Tannehill's short career has actually made it more difficult to assess what he really is. I'm hopeful but far less confident that he will blossom. I think limiting his attempts would expose all of his deficiencies but one way or another we would know for sure. Luckily for him I don't see much changing from the Lazor offense, other than having better receivers, hopefully outrageously good blocking up front and maybe even a better all around RB.

              Thanks, Kelly. I hope so as well. He can be frustrating at times, but when I put him into context and look at the dysfunction, poor development, and bad surrounding cast and coaches he's had to endure, I always felt that he improved pretty much on his own despite everything being stacked against him.

              I do think that this will be the season that we can finally evaluate him in isolation. Rooting for him to succeed and the team to have a winning season.

              Go Fins!!

                This season like all his previous ones will be heavily impacted by the effectiveness of our OL. So far it's been AWFUL and Tannehill has been inconsistent. I am still of the opinion the two are closely related. The fact he's thrown for 4000+ repeatedly and has significantly more TDs than INTs behind a line that made him the most sacked QB in the NFL makes it clear that it's possible he can not just do the job, but do it well. We don't know how he'll perform with adequate protection, because we have NEVER seen it in his NFL career....but not letting him get hit/sacked over and over and over certainly implies that would improve his play. Like it does every QB.

                Yes... we've had one of the worse OLs in the NFL ever since Philbin took over and with the injuries to Albert, Pouncey, and James, it's been bottom 3 the past couple years. We have better depth this season which should help as well. If we can elevate the OL from the bottom 3 to even the low teens to high 20s in rankings, I think we'll be in much better shape overall. I agree on the performance of both as well. Weird how Tannehill has put up the numbers he has. Really excited to see how Gase uses him and what he and the team can do this season.
