    Sorry I agree. QB is the least of our problems. Sure we need to invest I a a 2and or 3rd rounder to compete and have a good backup this coming draft. We will shed all old and bloated contracts so let's use that to churn the roster for the better.
    The deeper the roots, the higher the reach.

      Why can't this moron cover another team. I don't know anybody that respects his "football knowledge" and most Dolphins fans think he's a joke.

        Yeah, he's is re-tweeting, cause he helps lead the anti-Tannehill charge.

        Here's some perspective on media favorites:

        Cam Newton is the 28th rated passer in football. Carolina is 8-0.
        Peyton Manning is the 30th rated passer in football. Denver is 7-1.

        Phillip Rivers rated 8th in the league. San Deigo is 2-6.
        Drew Brees is rated 7th. New Orleans is 4-5.

        Running the football, maintaining offensive balance, and playing defense wins you games in this league.

        Ajayi and Miller are a good combo. Miller should be signed to an extension and Ajayi provided a nice counterpunch. Homer should be thrilled as this was the guy he was rooting for in the draft. Ajayi brings energy, and runs with violence and determination that results in picking up extra yards. He also goes down forward.

        We haven't had a good backfield since Ronnie and Ricky a decade ago. That's a boon to any QB...

          Post of the year...well I guess we have only been on the air for three months so that diminishes the title. BUT...Miami fans need to understand that Dan Marino is not walking through the door. Teams contend with a great defense and balanced attack. When we play that way (Titans and Texans) Tannehill and ANY QB looks good. The problem is not Tannehill because he can't single handedly win you the game like #13 used to do.

        I do believe that we have other issues that are hurting us more than the QB such as our o-line and defense but I still don't think Tannehill will ever lead a team to the playoffs because of the many shortcomings that he has.

          If Jay Fielder could do it, Tannehill easily can. Football is the ultimate team sport. The QB isn't holding this team back, the OL depth and defense is.

          Does anybody remember the game against the Cardinals in Tannehill's rookie season? I remember Tannehill threw downfield and connected with Hartline many times in that game. How come we have not seen that again?

          Is Lazor's offense holding Tannehill back? I remember Tannehill would throw downfield plenty of times his first couple of seasons under Sherman. We don't even need him to be throwing 30 plus yards downfield. How about some more intermediate throws like 15 to 20 yards downfield? He surely has the arm strength to do that. Why does Lazor have him throwing so many short passes under 5 yards?

            Based on Tannehill's contract he is going to be back next year. I think the best we can do is try to improve his supporting cast. We have to improve the o-line and if we have a new HC we will probably have a new OC and I think that might be a good thing since I don't think Tannehill is compatible with Lazor's offense. I would beef up our o-line and try establish a dominant rushing attack. That should help Tannehill a lot. I would also look to improve our defense. Right now we can't stop the run and we don't run with much success either. We have to reverse that and stop the run and run the ball effectively ourselves. Tannehill is never going to be an elite QB, if it hasn't happened by now its not going to happen but we can make things easier for him with a consistent rushing attack and a defense that doesn't make him play from behind all the time.

              I am having Fiedler flashbacks with this obsession of still backing a quarterback who clearly sucks.

              Being stubborn and sticking by a quarterback who is obviously not that great is what gets coaches fired. There should be a penalty for fans who do the same thing. AHA

                I would have never given Tannehill the contract extension last offseason but since we did it we are stuck with him for at least another year based on the salary cap configurations. So we might as well make the best of it and improve our o-line and defense. This is not a great QB class coming out anyway and we can't afford to use our first round pick on a QB when we have so many other needs so we probably have to wait until 2017 to draft another QB in the higher rounds if we get rid of Tannehill after next season.

                  Tannehill will never be able to carry a team but if Dilfer can do it so can RT. The problem is RT will never have the coaching staff to coach up a supporting cast, let alone draft one as well. So by the time we have good coaching staff in place and a few good drafts and FA's from a good GM RT will be long gone. So what it comes down too for RT is he's to inconsistent after 4 seasons to keep him around as long as it going take to build a team that suits his inconsistency...

                    You know when Miami was at it's best (yes in the early 70's) they ran the ball. They had a tough defense and they used the damn south Florida heat as an ally to wear the opponents defense down. Hell even during the Wannstedt years they did that and it was a HUGE advantage. Unless you have an elite QB that is the blue print to winning in Miami, and hell anywhere. As I said in another thread, until the organization realizes Tannehill is not and never will be an elite QB we will not win.

                    I want a coach that wants to run the ball, he wants to keep Tannehill on a pitch count and have a tough defense. I want Dan Cambell's attitude with experience.

                      Completely agree. Lazor has Tannehill throwing the ball a ridiculous number of times each game and it's even more silly when you consider how rarely we've fielded our starting OL this season. The need to be a run first team from here on out and for God's sake fix the stupid shat going on with the fkn Special Teams and the defense.

                    This whole ELITE QB bullshit is way overblown. We had Marino for how many years???? And how many SB championships did that get us????

                    RUN DA DAMN BALL AND STOP THE RUN. THAT WINS CHAMPIONSHIPS.

                      Agreed. Wilson and Tannehill could be interchangeable on that Seahawks team or with Taylor on that Bills team now. Running the ball protects your OL and hides deficiencies with the QB. Passing 30-40+ times a game is not what we can do and win.

                      I have to disagree with the comparison to RW.. RW has a worse Oline and he can scramble out of bad situations unlike RT and he can throw an accurate deep ball.. Even Taylor is throwing some dead on deep balls.. RT? not so much...

                    I have to disagree with you, my friend. I understand that the way his contract was written-up that the Dolphins are stuck with him but I don't think that is a reason to give up on another season. WHEN this team gets a new coaching staff I would be surprised if they were to build around Tannehill. If the "front office" hires a head coach that wants to build around Tannehill I will have no hope for the Dolphins future. In my opinion the new regime needs to go into free agency and pick up some experienced offensive linemen and if there are any available some defensive backs and then in the draft go after the best quarterback that falls to them in any round, whether it be the 1st - 4th rounds. This team needs a quality quarterback to at minimum push Tannehill for the starting job. When Tannehill's job was being threatended he had the best game of his career. He has not had his job threatened since because this coaching staff and front office made it clear that they were going to keep Moore and not sign anyone that Tannehill really had to worry about. Maybe Psyche was right, maybe they should have kept Devlin. It seems like every team around the league has a "Next Man Up" mentality except the Miami Dolphins. When ONE players gets hurt at any position the next man up is some guy who would have a hard time making another teams practice squad. When other teams plug in the next man up they don't seem to skip a beat.

                    Sorry, bro.......I am just getting the Fiedler Feeling again which was the worst feeling a Dolphins fan can have. Hopelessness. This team will go nowhere with Ryan Tannehill.

                      Completely agree here. Tannehill is not putting this team on his back and carrying him like elite QB's can do. With that said Tannehill did not get gashed for 300 yards rushing. Tannehill did not get burned all day by Sammy Wadkins, and Tannehill didn't throw his hanky or worse hold his hanky when Suh was being manhandled and Fox was doing what Buffalo did every play.

                      Ajayi looked solid. For the life of me (and everyone here) I don't understand why we go from the shotgun almost every down. For the life of me I don't understand how you have a back like Ajayi who was clearly physical and gaining yards on the bench if you're going for it at the goal line with 2 seconds left. At the very least line Tannehill up under center to at least make the defense respect a potential QB sneak or smash mouth hand off up the middle.

                      Play calling has been terrible, LB play has been terrible, CB play has been bad, oline play has been putrid. Throw in QB play that has been inconsistent and you have a losing team - which we know very well what that looks like because we watch it week after week.
