    We definitely had both injuries and struggles on offense last year...That said, excuses are over. It’s now or never, and 13/11 passing TD’s the last 2 years isn’t cutting it. Line has been addressed, WR has been addressed...

    That's all well and dandy... on paper. The real concern is, what happens if he stains his hamstring or breaks a rib. The "ceiling" or "potential" is irrelevant if you can't reach it.

    Fingers crossed he finally plays a full- injury free- season. This year could be fun to watch. Unfortunately that is out of anyone's control. If gets hurt early, it will be a rough season. Tannehill is a great gap-year vet QB, for whomever we draft, but unfortunately he'll be good enough to win a few games and take us out of the top of the draft. Most of our eggs are in the Mariota basket right now. Hope it pans out.

    We're talking QB here so my 20 bar is thru the air.

    If he has 20 with rushes, he fell well short of what you expect from an NFL QB.

    He has to take shots down field more often...Stop being afraid in the pocket and let it rip. I’d rather lose taking chances and threading the needle than playing cautious.

    That won't be enough. Tannehill was on pace for 25 TDs last year with an underwhelming supporting cast, and is a consistent 25 TD QB in a healthy season. I think that's the minimum that we're willing to accept.

    You think Tannehill has a chance to beat out Mary? (Honest question)

    Baring catastrophic injury Mary is our week-1 QB, they've already announced that.
