I'll tell you why I'm still on the fence. First of all he only put up average numbers (efficiency-wise) before this year. This year (whole year), he's got overall slightly above average numbers, with at least one key one finally in the top 10: Y/A. But in passer rating (overall the best because of its correlation to winning) he's still within a standard deviation of the mean (though at least he's above the mean). So just looking at it from a numbers point of view, he's overall above average but not by that much. Stats aside, the key issue for me is consistency. I'd say there were only 2 games this year where he played clear-cut from start to finish as a franchise QB: against SD and SF. The Arizona game was good too (just not on the level of the other two IMO). So 3 maybe. But we saw him play bad against Baltimore, play crappy the entire game except the last two drives against the Rams (though I'll give him credit for playing well when it counted, but otherwise that was crappy), and for the other games during the recent win streak he was mostly there to hand off the ball to Ajayi and didn't play particularly well or that bad.. just average. And of course he played either OK or like crap during the first 5 games. The big difference this year of course is that he's had several games where from start to finish where he played real well, so he's definitely showing improvement. But for me there are still two questions I wanted to see answered and possibly might not get to see answered this year because of the injury: 1) can he play more often at a high level for an entire game and not just for a few series or for part of the game (because that's the Tannehill we had before), and 2) how well does he play when the playoffs are on the line? To the 2nd point, it's really sad he had this injury because his play when the playoffs are on the line really matters to me, and he's 1-1 this year and a lot worse in previous years.. (that 0-2 at the end of 2013 REALLY sticks in memory.. so deflating). Anyway, that's why I'm still on the fence. But at least he's proven he can play better than I thought he could before this season in individual games.. it's just not yet consistent enough for me to say he's clear-cut a franchise QB.
