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

    Top 10, sure, but top 5 im not so sure.

    It annoys me to not see his name in top 10 conversations and lists.

    14 games is a small sample size though, if he keeps it up for the rest of this season, his top 10 credentials cant be ignored.

    If by “this team” you mean Titans, you can definitely make a case. I would say too small of a sample size to put him past McNair. And he has one less Super Bowl appearance.

    But if you are talking about the franchise, he isn’t even close to Warren Moon. A long way to go to reach Moon.

    12 team snake draft - I had the second overall pick. I picked Lamar with pick 26 in the third round. I picked Ryan T. in the 11th round with pick 122.

    No one is saying he’s as good as Mahomes though. This is the naive trap people get caught into when you’re comparing stats. Comparing his stats to Mahomes is to show how effective Tannehill has been, and that his numbers are amongst the best. Not that he’s better than the guy he’s being compared too.

    Have not seen a single person try and argue he’s better than Mahomes. I think most people (myself included) were surprised to see how comparable his stats were when they are side by side. Titans clearly run the ball more and play a totally different style. You wouldn’t expect the stats to be all that similar.

    Says the guy creating/answering an argument that doesn’t exist.

    I don’t think we are on the same page if we both read that article and your take away was the need to say Mahomes is better.

    I said a lot of things in that first post.

    I said Tannehill could be top five and elite.

    I said he was the best QB we’ve had in nearly 20 years.

    I said Pat Mahome and Russell Wilson were better.

    Do you disagree with any of that?

    No, and no one is arguing that! The article doesn’t even mention Wilson, so why did you? Lmao again you’re creating your own argument.

    Im (trying) to point out to you that the point of the article wasn’t to say Tannehill is better than Mahomes/Wilson (which is how you ended your post). In fact I’m saying, you are naively assuming that them comparing stats is them saying one is better/same as the other.
