    I was always a Tannehill fan but he is not a playmaker, just look at Baker-Mayfield he has a worse team but already carries it, it's sad to accept he is not the answer, i know we have many injuries but i just don't see it. We pay him over 100M $ for being average, hope im wrong but i just don't see it, need to start over, bring a new Qb next year.

    I mean, it’s early, but I actually looked at college QBs today after the game.

    My brain is telling me something.....

    I love Tannehill but he just don't has it, he will never be a playmaker, not even a Chad Pennington

    I thought the same thing watching the Browns overtime....Mayfield didn't have much protection but he was making the absolute most out of it. He's a stud and we need one of those.

    Sure. Just as soon as we fix the interior of this line. If you grab another qb without addressing that we will just be having this conversation again in three years. Thill may not be the guy but he is still not the biggest problem here.

    Tannehill isnt special, he’s just serviceable. That’s not enough to make it in this league. Not when we have guys like Mahomes and Mayfield about to take over the league. And who knows how Darnold and Allen turn out too and theyre both in our division and have potential long careers.

    This isn’t a very dumb post. You ever watch other games?? News flash he plays the most important position and he’s brutal. First half untouched still couldn’t score how many excuses do you need?? Every week a new one. We have a good defense and one of the worst players in the league at then most important position. A low energy mental midget scared loser

    I agree he us a middling qb that still makes foolish mistakes. I am just saying that you can still win with him until you fix the oline. Then you replace him. Who do you see in next years qb crop that you thinknis an upgrade? I'd like to know because I havent seen anybody yet.

    Its not a good year for quarterbacks..

    There’s lock..

    Then you look at Grier, Browning, Herbert, and Stidham..

    In my opinion Grier is the best prospect of the bunch. And you need to stay the hell away from Herbert.. you fall in love with his measurables and skillset but he doesnt have the killer instinct gene.

    I think the Dolphins should go with Falk as their starting QB next year. This will ensure they get a top draft pick in 2020. That is the draft the QB from Alabama will be available. I would do whatever is necessary to trade up and ensure he was my pick.

    I believe he will be the next Drew Brees and a great NFL QB. Trade Tannehill for a 4th or 5th round pick while he still has some value and use the 2019 season to get your QB for the next 15 years.

    I believed the hype in the offseason. Tannehill looked damned fine at the end of ‘16. Now, he’s different.

    These fumbles, INTs that look like something from a football follies film. It’s happened several times this year and I think it is time. I hate to say it. He’s tough. He works. But he’s JAG. I’ll give him till the end of the year, but he’s just off right now.

    End of the year. If Miami isn’t rolling into the playoffs, I’m done.....

    Well you got to continue rolling with him because right behind him is Osweiller and you might as well just throw in the towel before the game kicks off if youre starting Brock

    And that may be as good an approach as any. I just dont want them to draft a QB in the first just to say they did. Draft the right guy!

    Its funny. I moved to Michigan just before the NFL season last year. While I have no affinity for the Lions, I enjoy sports radio and listen to it a fair bit, and what has struck me is how similar that team is to ours, and how Tannehill is basically a discount Stafford.

    What I hear all the time about Stafford are things like passive, not an alpha, no killer instinct, not a great leader. Puts up stats, but is prone to killer turnovers. Lots of garbage time stats. Not a winner, satisfied.

    And one of the most interesting and damning - what difference does he make? Does he make the team better, does he win, make crucial plays, drag them to wins and the playoffs and get the team fired up and flying around the way a Brady, Brees, Roger's can? Nope.

    And most of that applies to Tannehill, except he has less talent. :/

    Time to move on.

    You can sum up our current situation in four words. Daunte. Culpepper. Drew. Brees.

    12 years and umpteen coaches and QB's later and we've still got our arm down the pan, sloshing around the U bend, grabbing frantically at passing turds, hoping upon hope that we might catch one that is vaguely polishable.

    They say that often. They said the same thing about Goff and Wentz draft. Many said the only reason they were going so high was because they were QBs..

    Needed is the more appropriate word. We needed a new qb for a very long time. It only took me about two full seasons to realize THill can't see the field, unable to properly feel the pocket and throws when the pass catchers eventually turnaround. Incapable of throwing someone open with any semblance of anticipation. But what do I know? I'm just a fan.

    I think this is exactly right. Taneyhill is not the only problem but he is clearly a problem. We have to try to get another quarter back one who will be better. But we also must fix the offensive line!

    I was convinced we were drafting a QB this off-season, and had come to peace with that, and was frankly excited.

    Then we didn't. So I figured Gase must know something we all don't.

    Guess he didn't.

    Not the solution.

    Evidence is in. Unless he drastically changes something the rest of the season (and how often does that happen?) then it's clear he is not the guy. He doesn't win us games. He doesn't put the team on his back. He doesn't will us to win. He does not elevate the team and talent around him, he needs the team and talent to elevate him. And we just do not have that team.

    I disagree. Gase wanted Luke Falk. Gase got his first choice in the draft for free. It doesn't get much better than that if Falk develops.

    On a side note, I'm wondering if Falk actually got hurt this past week. Immediately I thought they placed him on injured reserve to buy an additional practice squad year so Gase can work with him longer. I think they're really high on this kid.

    Maybe. I was also more referring to how Gase talked Tannehill up big time all off season, he's his guy, blah blah.

    I think this is spot on. I couldn't believe he made it to the open market. THill is the type of QB Gase wants. Falk is too, but more talented with more game time

    The line wasnt half bad when Fiedler was here. He had a weak arm and whenever he threw that 15 yard out it was a pick 6 nine times out of ten.

    What? You can only fix one at a time? Not saying there is one this year, but if a legitimate franchise QB is there, we cannot pass him up. Franchise QB's are much harder to find than good offensive linemen and we can take a OG or OC in round 2. I agree, we need to stop taking chances on OL in the late rounds though. Not sure if we are having any luck with those.

    As bad as their track record is drafting guards probably so. But the lesson from Jake Long is, if there is a franchise QB available you have to grab him.

    Look I still believe the line is a bigger problem, but you wont find me advocating passing on a sure fire QB in the draft. I just dont see one in college right now.

    Start with a new HC first. Preferably one that isn't so erroneously arrogant, and adamant about building the entire team around an average QB.

    What's your preference? A HC that was a DC or one that was an OC?
