    I think it would be hard to find 5 NFL Qb's who wouldn't play well with time to throw and a back that started breaking 200 yds a game. Qb's playing better with time is not some revolutionary discovery, its common sense.

    But Ryan of all people kind of deserved that type of coach/cast....he suffered from the exact opposite most of his career and it hindered his potential.

    The "what could've been" card may be how his tenure may be themed.

    I preached what you posted here for years CK. I was just about ostracized for bashing Ryan Tannehill in Club. I was right.

    Ryan Tannehill never had it, never will.

    Na, it was coming. Adam Gase was real close to having him where we needed him.

    He will always be the ultimate enigma, who had some ****ty luck.

    If you were around long enough, you would have realized that I was the one that started the thread championing for US, the Miami Dolphins to draft Aaron Rodgers.

    Yeah, I was the one that started the thread, "Aaron Rodgers is the next Joe Montana with a Stronger Arm".

    You old timers remember that thread? That was me.

    I was laughed at then. I was right. Good luck finding another thread I started like that about any QB, EVER...

    And if Fin D is liking something you bashed me for, I know I was right without doing any research.

    Yeah, I remember those Chad Henne arguments, too. You all know who you are defending Chad Henne.

    Damn, some things never change.

    So (if you ever see this) the larger lambda is, the less likely that the event is random?

    We should probably let Cutler play at least one game as a Dolphin before we start another QB board war.

    No the event is always equally random.

    Here's the thing. There's math for calculating the probability of tossing K heads out of N total tosses of a weighted or unweighted coin, where the coin has some probability P of turning up heads. That math is called the binomial distribution:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binomial_distribution

    The problem in practice is that if the total number of trials N is huge and P is extremely small relative to N (e.g. let's say the coin is weighted so heavily that on average you get one success every 1000 tosses) the math is really cumbersome to do calculations with. Actually it's cumbersome as long as N gets large.

    So some really good approximations were created for different special cases of the binomial distribution, and one of them is the Poisson distribution which handles precisely the case where P is really small relative to size N:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poisson_distribution

    The Poisson distribution is useful when an event rarely occurs, like the number of times your house is burglarized in a year, or the number of times North Korea tests a nuclear bomb in a year, etc.. So that "lambda" just refers to the average number of times that event occurs per unit time (or per unit whatever).

    By all means let the divorcee living with his mother who cried to us all about how much he loves the married woman who keeps him on the side with liquor at the Holiday Inn, brag about how smart and right he is.

    I like Gase better than Lazor but Tanny had a similar stretch of greatness play in 2014. There was no guarantee he would Progress this year. How many gays in this corner help though.

    As for disrespect I believe that ties back to how private he is. Mike Wallace commented on this after he left. Wasn't talking smack just saying he did his own thing. The practice squad walk through thing. Some people wanted to downplay that but that doesn't happen to an alpha qb

    Good call with Riley Ferguson. The kid does seem to fly under the radar due to playing on Memphis. He has a great arm and can be slippery in the pocket.

    He had a hell of a game today against UCLA (Rosen was impressive too): 23/38, 398 yards, 6 TD's and 1 INT.

    Really fun to watch.

    I defended Chad Henne back then and I still defend him now. He was the polar opposite of Pennington, yet Sparano asked him to throw 20 touch passes a game....his absolute worst throw since he had a cannon of an arm. Philbin basically did the same thing telling Tannehill to stay in the pocket, never audible and not to even think about throwing the ball more than 3 or 4 yards.

    Of course, the line sucked for most of the tenure for Tannehill and Henne alike so that was a big part of the reasoning, but it's almost impossible to say whether either of them could have been something special or total busts. They were both in the wrong offense with a bad line and a dumb coach...the trifecta for failing QB's in the NFL.

    The ONLY real difference between the two QB's was that RT got Gase (who fixed the majority of the line problems in six days), while Henne was shipped to an even worse team in Jacksonville.

    My question is- who's the guy in all black standing right in front of him as he throws? That looks an awful lot like Gase...why would he be remotely interested in watching RT warm up before a game?

    Love the dedication.

    What is the official time-table for Tannehill's return? No miracle chance of seeing him in a playoff scenario, I'd assume?

    A reporter said in an article this week that he still has six months to go...but they've also said that he's WAAAY ahead of schedule. So the official answer is that there's not a chance we'd see him this year.

    But unofficially? Tannehill wants to play and he's pushing himself hard.

    I'd guess the only (very small) chance Tannehill plays this season is if we make the Super Bowl, which would put him at about 6 months removed from the surgery.

    Even parrothead's unable to see through the fluff.
    Our players are coached to support the "leader" and will answer stupid questions to the best of their ability. We best not overthink everything and read too much into it all. Especially if we can truly judge talent on the field. Cutler is clearly just a last min. substitute we are trying to convince fans can be something he's never been, so we remain interested. This is then conveniently spun against RT by his skeptics.

    There's no way RT's coming back, he won't be in playing shape, and he'll be out all next year if he does. If for some reason MM or Cutler take us deep in the PO's then we stick to who brought us.

    I've been thinking about these quotes and, if what Gase said about them not knowing the plays is true, it's almost as if the players were so caught up in what the media was saying about the team (i.e Tannehill is a bad QB, offense is loaded with talent, one of the best WR trios in the league, Cutler may actually be better than Tannehill, etc.) that they believed Tannehill was actually the offense's anchor.

    It's as if they were so full of themselves and believed so much in their "pure talent" they would be even better just by replacing Tannehill with Cutler, with no need to put the extra effort in.

    Hopefully this is not the case, but if it is, it seems to me there are a few players in the building who foster this kind of culture... and I think it just may start with Landry.
