    My new nickname for RT. He deserves it, no one takes a beating like him and keeps going. If Tannenbaum and Hickey don't devote significant resources to the OL this offseason, shame on them. It's impossible to see what RT is capable of behind such a putrid line. Tannehill himself has a lot to prove, but playing behind that OL is just ridiculous.

    Poor guy. Anyone that wants to come on here and smack talk Tannehill is being immediately added to my ignore list.

    I have piled it on Tannehill but I'm starting to come around to the idea that the team is cancerous and you can't diagnose Tannehill until other areas are cured.

    Tannehill is not blameless, but is definitely one tough SOB.

    The guy is flawed and he has some work to do on pocket presence and accuracy, but this is just ridiculous. Epically bad OL, no excuses. That last play of the game should be played on a loop at Dolphins HQ all week.

    The center missed the snap count...the play was obviously on two and he snapped it on one. That's why he was the only one who managed to block.

    Yeah, it's impossible to know what Tannehill can be, playing behind this line, with a suspect offensive scheme.

    If this was Star Trek, Tannehill would be the red shirt that managed to survive the whole series.

    The scheme can certainly be improved, but how can any scheme work with such a bad offensive line?

    We might be recalling this bad snap as the sole reason we get x player in the draft as opposed to y. What are we, like #5?

    I'm thinking that we jumped ahead of Baltimore, not sure what both teams' opponent W/L % is after the game today. Jax losing to NO 21-0.

    How can you not root for this guy? Every game, every play he's out there busting his *** behind a dog**** OL.

    If that's the case, we leapfrog both teams, since we lost head to head vs. Jax...Right?

    Jax is getting their butts kicked. I'm thinking that we're drafting ahead of Baltimore now because of our opponents' lower win % but I'm not sure. I have us at #7, but that needs confirmation.

    That's a good point about Jax, but my guess is that it depends on their opponents' W/L % after their game today. Before the games today, our opponents .473, Jax .464. Really close.

    Yeah, I agree. I may be to harsh on the scheme itself. I just don't like seeing receivers bunched up on the same part of the field, most of them running short routes.

    I'm giving up on Ryan ever being elite or a true franchise QB but I'm still a big fan. He is absolutely a tough SOB and he is a much better QB than he is given credit for. He actually has thrown the deep ball fairly well this year at times too.

    It's funny going on Facebook, the Dolphins page there people are claiming him THE worst QB in football. I'm not saying he's great or anything but saying he's the worst or even comparable to Chad Henne as many do there and here as well is just clueless.

    He's good but he has to be really good, minimum, to get the team to the next level. Behind the current OL he won't get there.

    We were already ahead of those guys, but due to the tie breaking procedure we are ahead of Balt I believe after their upset today so we've moved up 1 spot to 6th.

    Draft tiebreaker goes to strength of schedule 1st I believe.

    I don't think that we were already ahead of Baltimore and Jax. The big question is, are we ahead of Baltimore now?

    Jax losing to NO 31-19 late 3rd quarter.

    No one wants to lose, but the fact of the matter is that the loss helped us as per the draft. If that helps us get a Hargreaves, Ramsey, Smith or Stanley with a higher selection, good for us.

    tannehill has his left leg completely wrapped up and players said he had a very hard time catching his breath in the huddle on quite a few plays. i feel bad for the guy, this organization being as ****ing stupid as they are have completely let him down.

    Why play him next week? Call it a season. He will be our QB next year and if he elevates his game to a much higher level than he has before? Maybe we keep him going forward.

    Point is 2016 will be the make or break year for Ryan for contractual purposes, give him an early break from the beatings.

    Herald reporting Tannehill had blood in his urine before the game.

    I agree. Sit him next game. No sense putting him out there to get mauled with a lost season. Let his recuperation period start now.

    that is just bad man, and people on here want to know why he has "regressed". the guy has been beat to hell and is far more banged up than people realize. the guy is pissing blood, has his left leg completely wrapped after the game, cant catch his breath, has had a sore ankle and bad back and the guy still goes out there taking this kind of abuse and throwing for 300+ yards.... and after all that he has still started every game of his career.

    He got jacked in the leg and had a hard time breathing? I hope it's not a blood clot.

    To me, there is a good idea of what sort of Qb Tannehill "is", mainly, good, not great, needs help to win games.

    Seems like the league caught up to the Lazor offense, the offensive line is just as terrible, and the better the ball is run the better he plays..no shocker, does mean he is not a high volume/"franchise' type of Qb. Think he is best suited to a heavy play action style of offense.

    Also think he is very tough and a great competitior and has maximized the talented bits on the offense. Matthews and Parker will combine for 1k yds along with Landry

    This front office has really done a good job of protecting their biggest offensive investment... /sarcasm

    they should all be fired for being so stupid to believe that Turner and Thomas were the solution.

    Good but not great so far, but do you know what was great? Seeing a comeback, even though it came short at the end because of the OL. RT has to help bring us back in more games like that, good to see. But the OL...

    thats what i think as well i think tannehill is a good qb you can win superbowls with a good qb. i think tannehill with the right type of offense can become great.

    Trading up to take Billy Turner when Trai Turner was available in the 3rd round after our original draft pick was a major boner, as I've said many times. That traded 4th round pick could have been Martavis Bryant and Trai Turner is a Pro Bowl starter this year. I've been singing that tune for two years now, but it was an awful move then and it's worse now.
