    Default Tannehill "not in the running for starting job" (Sky is falling)

    According to the Palm Beach Post, rookie Ryan Tannehill is "not in the running" for the Dolphins' starting quarterback job heading to training camp.
    Beat writer Brian Biggane attributes Tannehill lagging behind David Garrard and Matt Moore to "untimely mistakes, particularly when throwing into traffic." It should be noted that his pre-draft scouting report had a similar criticism. Biggane expects Tannehill to "continue his apprenticeship as the No. 3 guy." The Week 1 job will likely come down to Garrard and Moore. It is mildly concerning that Tannehill did not make a spring run up the depth chart considering his knowledge of OC Mike Sherman's offense.








    Personally I see the "throwing in to traffic" issue as having a lot to do with him adjusting to the speed of the game. Absolutely no reason to be legitimately concerned yet.

    not disappointing at all to me. it would have been a nice surprise if he had grabbed the starting role, but he still is pretty raw when it comes to starting as a QB. if we only had options like John Beck, a broken Chad Pennington or Chad Henne, then you could envision throwing Tannehill into the fire, but I don't see the need with Garrard and Moore on the roster.

    Yup. Say what you want about Moore and Garrard, but they're hardly scrub opposition for QB like you'd find in CLE, NY, etc.

    Maybe he can help the receiver corp?

    "Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”

    I am not disappointed, it is exactly what I thought would happen.

    That that I wasn't hoping that Ryan would surprise me and dominate the competition.

    I would much rather Garrard or Moore start and let the rookie come in for clean up duty late in games. Best way for him to get experience.

    Not a major surprise. Our best option to win games is going to lie with either Moore or Garrard for this season. Let Tannehill marinate a bit before tossing him on the grill.

    This is the result of a few OTA's we're talking about... not training camp. This might look completely different a month from now. How many times have we looked at players we thought would emerge to only find out something else in TC/Preseason.

    BTW, I'm still around and hope everyone is well, I just don't post unless I'm saying something that hasn't already been said!

    Why is a second-string beat writer's opinion--not even analysis, just opinion--being presented as fact?

    Also, we already knew Tannehill was unlikely to start this season, because Philbin and Ireland already said this.

    Not sure why they (Rotoworld) considers it "mildly concerning". If I were a back-up QB at Texas A&M I'd probably know the system better than Moore or Garrard also. But If were going to compete as a starter in the NFL, I'd think my path would be more dependent on me getting used to the physical and mental speed of NFL defenses and my ability to iron out my own weaknesses.

    Never expected him to challenge this year. He could make strides, but he was always a developmental guy coming out. The game still has to slow down for him. I think the national media assumed he'd be a factor due to the Sherman/offense angle.

    Now if he's still not ready in 2013, then we begin to worry.

    If Ryan doesn't mount a more serious campaign in training camp, then yeah I'll be a little bit disappointed. I don't see why anyone wouldn't be. He's a #8 overall pick, came in knowing the playbook, is being coached by the same guys that coached him in college, and he's a physical dynamo. That's usually a recipe for day one starter. His lack of experience is the counter to that and I get it, I wouldn't start him this year either...but I do expect him to make a serious run at the job. So far, we're led to believe he hasn't really done that. But I agree with HulkFish, these are just OTAs. Training camp matters more.
