  • What can we get for Tannehill?

    Is anybody still naive enough to trade for Tannehill? The only possible buyers I can see are maybe the Bears, the Browns, the Texans and maybe the Cardinals if Arians thinks he can work a miracle. He has not improved in any way (since Texas A&M) and defenses have him SO figured out. The O line excuse only goes so far. Troy Aikman got jacked so much harder and more often than BananaPeel ever has because he stood in and delivered strikes even when it cost him teeth. Remember how bad the Cowboys were before they became great. I can't remember a single ballerina , twisting jump pass from Aikman. The man set his feet, stood tall in the face of incoming missiles, hit his receivers and got his ass jacked up. That man commanded respect, confidence, protection, sacrifice and true brotherly love. Tannehill's teammates don't love him, don't respect him, don't trust him and don't care to protect him. Men aspire to follow a man with vision and Tannehill is a fool bumbling around lost.
    At this point, I would bring in Tim Tebow to run this offense for the remainder of the season and get this offensive line moving forward. At least we'll get to see some fight.

    Even though I obviously don't like Tannehill I do believe there are probably a few teams out there that probably see potential in him and would believe they could help him turn that corner. I mean, they might have some people on staff other then Sherman's son-in-law that might actually be able to teach him something, I think the Dolphins should trade him and they might be able to get a 1st round pick for him, if the team in question feels they can get to the playoffs with him. A few teams out there have injuries or are not happy with their QB's but have a solid team in other areas.

      I get it, I say you need to stop riding RT so much and your response is to ride him harder. I know where we stand now.
      While it takes two to have an argument, it only takes one to walk away.

        Tebow?? That's flat out laughable.

          Just a rant... No point in getting worked up over it. Grass is always greener elsewhere with QBs. Remember Kelly wanted to trade Tannehill for Manziel 2 years ago. Steven wanted to trade him and draft Tom Savage. Someone else wanted a trade for EJ Manuel... this coming draft they'll want to trade the farm for Cook.

          Tannehill hasn't been special and he's leaving yards and TDs on the field, but he's a hellova lot better than about what 20 other teams have at the position. Let's see how he finishes the year before we trade him for the next best thing. Also, we can dump his contract after next year and move on.

          What we need worst is a LB, DE, and CB. - Jaylen Smith, Bosa, and Hargreaves, please. Then an OG WAF...

          Just get sick of people making more of it than it really is. The saying that QB's get too much credit as well as too much blame is true as hell here. Also crying about it without making a serious suggestion on how to solve it is just stupid.

          They have the worst guard tandem in the NFL and it isn’t really close. Dallas Thomas and Jamil Douglas rank 77th and 79th out of 79 guards that have received meaningful snaps this year. Mind you there are only 64 starting guards in the NFL at one point in time.

          Based on this, I don't see how you can tell what Tannehill can do. He's never had an OL and this year is the worst. Interestingly, his numbers are his lowest after facing two tough D's where the team collapsed all over the field.

        OBVIOUSLY if he continues to play as he has, the past couple of games, nobody will give much (if anything) for him.
        IF he goes back to improving over his previous years. (AND THERE WAS IMPROVEMENT) then we wouldn't want to trade him.
        We SHOULD always keep our eyes out for talent in the draft though.
        QB competition is a good thing...

          I'm not willing to judge a guy based solely on two of his worst ever games where the players around him completely sucked also (both on offense and defense). Yes Tannehill needs to play better. That won't happen when he's ducking a tackler as fast as the snap gets to his hands in the shotgun.

          Our OL may be the worst of all time. The Offense will never be successful until that changes.

        Life would be so much easier if there was someone available to replace him with. I said in preseason that all three of our backups weren't worth the powder to blow them up. Psyche was right, maybe we should have hung on to Devlin.

          What's Devlin doing these days? Still a FA, that none of the other 31 teams are interested in? Sounds like a SOLUTION!

          No idea bud. Last I heard he was on someone's PS but offhand I don't remember who.

        How about we send Tannehill to the Browns for a 2nd round pick? I would make that trade if the Browns would. I don't think Tannehill will ever be any better than what he is. I would then draft a QB next year. I like Jared Goff from California.

          A Ham sandwich and a bag of chips... After London we would be lucky with a 5th rounder..

            I remember Aikman that dude was a horse! What QB playing now could take a monster hit like that??????? This league has changed those hit's and those QB's are long gone. We are in the bubblewrap years.
