Again, here's the issue with that: there has been only one Super Bowl winner of the past 15 that has accomplished that with such a quarterback (described in the highlighted portion above) who wasn't on his rookie contract. And of course Tannehill isn't on his rookie contract and in fact may absorb a greater percentage of his team's salary cap next year than he ever has previously in his career. Once again, the fact that what I said above is true makes Tannehill in effect an average quarterback, because he needs the same team ingredients average QBs do to win a Super Bowl. That became obvious Sunday, when he needed an elite pass defense to keep pace with the "generational talent" you mentioned above, despite that he played about as well as he ever has historically in that kind of game himself. The fact that these generational talents exist, coupled with the rules of the game that make it an ultra-passing league, makes QBs like Tannehill in effect "average." It isn't "me" doing it.
