    I must be going crazy. There's no way you're defending that 2013 offensive line.

    Haha okay.

    Have a look at Tom Brady's play when his offensive line isn't just perfect.

    Another flaw in comparing based on the QB rating stat.

    I'm not defending anything. The OL and the QB were both bad last year. I have no problem acknowledging that. There seem to be many that choose to defend the bad QB play however.

    Sure, but Tannehill's accuracy under pressure wasn't significantly different from the league norm in 2013. His deep (20+ yards in the air) passing accuracy was in the 19th percentile in the league, but I'm not aware of any objective evidence that that was due to pressure on those plays. Given that 53 of his 58 sacks were beyond the 2.5-second mark after the snap, it seems more likely that when he was under pressure on a longer-developing play, he simply took a sack rather than throwing an ill-advised pass whose accuracy was negatively influenced by pressure.

    Another question...it'd been well established that Tannehill was top five in the league for getting rid of the ball quickly. If you're saying that the majority of his sacks cans after 2.5 seconds, I'd argue that it speaks even worse of his line. When Tannehill had a play that required his line to hold blocks, they simply couldn't do it, and Tannehill had pressure around the ends and up the middle.

    Ya and according to PFF, RT was the #5 QB in the NFL last year...and is sitting at #7 this year with 1 less game than a few above him. Like any other QB, there are things he does well and things he doesn't do well.

    How do you discern between their rating of him and your statistical judgement?

    No, not really.
