That sounds practical, but that's not how this stuff usually plays out. Just look at Tannehill- I was on the fence for years, saw a genuine superstar at times, and eventually decided he was a bum who didn't belong in the NFL. Then he went to Tennessee and posted the #1 ranking in the league....how does any of that make a bit of sense? This debate is eerily similar because everyone has traits they love and/or hate. For instance, Tua will never have a big arm with Tannehill's zip. But he's criticized for that almost daily like his tapes lied to us or something. He also has fantastic pocket presence, and that's enough for some to be all-in...even though they probably shouldn't be. So for him to elevate to the level where he silences the critics, I would think that would almost have to be a Super Bowl MVP type of season. And I'm sorry, I'm just not expecting that. What I'll personally be looking at is metrics my brain ties to winning- 3rd down conversions, red zone offense, overall placement/accuracy, etc. I'd also like to see more throws downfield, but I don't think that's as much of a "prove it" stat as others. As long as he's keeping drives alive in the 4th quarter though and we're stacking up the W's, I'm going to be optimistic. How can he prove he's not the guy? By winning less than 8 games with a similar level of output from our 2021 defense. Just on that alone, I'll say it's time to move on. We know he can function with a terrible line so even if we get some injuries and the line stinks again, I don't see that as a major excuse anymore. So even if he puts up fantastic #'s but we're a six-win team, I'll probably be ready to move on.
