Interesting take on Tannehill as a Titan, and why he's a Top 5 QB.

    Here is the article. Panthers surprising everyone with potent offense; Ryan Tannehill's a top-five QB
    The quote that jumped out at me:
    "In 14 regular-season starts with the Titans, Tannehill has guided the Titans to an 11-3 mark with 3,602 pass yards (257.3 per game), a 31:6 touchdown-to-interception ratio and a 116.6 passer rating, while also running for an additional 258 yards and five scores. Compare that to Patrick Mahomes' production over his last 14 games: 11-3 record, 3,674 pass yards, 28:6 TD-to-INT ratio and 102.3 passer rating, with 266 yards rushing and four scores. Considering all the verbal bouquets scouts, coaches and observers toss at the 2018 MVP/reigning Super Bowl MVP, the football world needs to give Tannehill his due as an elite player."

    Tannehill has played really well. He’s easily the best QB we’ve had since the early 2000s. When you watch him and Mahomes play though it’s not close. Mahomes is asked to do way more and does it at a higher level.

    Tannehill can be in the top five. It’s still a steep drop off after Mahomes and Wilson though.

    Yup, not even close. Tanne still proving to be a top QB tho. But he ain’t doing what Mahomes is doing

    Through the first 4/5 games of this season Mahomes definitely has the edge (it's important ro note that Mahomes played several games last season still recovering from injury, which may explain some of the closeness in statistics).

    Unrelated, I will say that so far I'm more impressed this year with Tannehill than I am with Lamar Jackson. I have both of them in a fantasy league, and am close to benching Jackson for Tannehill if he has another performance like last week.

    Who cares how fancy it looks, the stats show he’s doing exactly what mahomes is doing. Is Ryan as physically gifted? No. But he’s also not on a team with the 3 fastest guys in the league. Is Ryan “as good” probably not. Can he produce as much, that’s already been a proven yes.

    Tanne doesn't have to be as good as Mahomes to be considered a great QB.

    Yea I guess the difference is the absolute Top of the TOP situation. No one here is gonna say they would take Tanne over Mahomes at this point in their careers. The ceiling is still higher with the kid.

    This doesn’t take anything away from what Tanne is and has been doing. He’s a top tier QB in his own right and been absolutely MONEY when it matters. No one can hate on Tanne. Matter fact he deserves more credit that’s he’s been given if you ask me. TanneDimes has been the best player on the Titans since he stepped foot in a live game.

    And the best QB this team has EVER seen. Fight me.
