No one is bragging... just looking at the numbers. You can choose how
you view things... you cannot chose which players are on the team.

Without using stats, I can agree/understand how people see the positive
from Tannehill as well as the negatives.
 
Let's HOPE that his slow growth continues and this season, his first
real chance to be something other than a rookie in a good offense, he
finally puts a real stamp on his place in the ranks of active QB's.
 
The OL is apparently going to be problematic again in 2017. It's
doubtful that Pouncey is healthy for anything like 16 games. Tunsil has
apparently not been too solid in the OTA's and mini=camp and wound up
sidelined with a hammy. We know that the guard positions are of
questionable quality and depth... I don't think RT is particularly
reliable.
 
If Gase can use a terrific WR corps and potentially excellent running
game to minimize the impact of his OL weakness, the offense should be
pretty good. All we can do is wait and see. I'm making no
prediction... no way.

The weakest link once again could be the OL

Third TD from the Chargers 25 yd line to D Williams about five yards into the endzone. Trailing by XX with 4:00 minutes left in the fourth quarter, he launched one from the Dolphins 16 to across midfield at about the 54 hitting Devante Parker in stride on the left sideline while -guess what- getting hammered again.

A year or two ago some were using a low YAC as an indication RTan was a
poor QB - if he lead the receivers better, they wouldn't have to stop in
their route. Now it's reversed. A HIGH YAC is an indication of a poor
QB if it weren't for the receivers YAC, RTan's numbers would be poor.
If RTan can play like he did the last 6 games before his injury, I'll be
satisfied.
