    This fan base seems to love being mediocre. As long as they get their playoff game once a year. Tanny hasn't shown anything besides be decent in the regular season, and that's because we are a run first team with a HOF tier RB.

    If I lived in Tennessee I'd probably still watch from home honestly.

    You can win games with any QB. But what if you need your QB to do it on his own? It's stupid to think Tanny could win a playoff game on his own. I'm sorry I want a QB that elevates a team around them instead of needing a perfected roster to elevate a mediocre QB. Plus it's easier to have long term success as a team if your QB can make players around him better than having to constantly draft perfect or spend big money to bring talent in. So cheaper on offense in that WRs potentially cost less hence more money for the OL and defensive side of the ball.

    he is holding the team back for sure. we are stuck in neutral with him around. like you said, good QBs elevate the people around him. who is he elevating?? not a damn person and it's clear he is trending down. (hello, he is going to be 35 next year)

    the fanbase is still so jaded by losing in the 2010's that they are okay with not accomplishing anything as long as they don't suck. you can see it in these posts ("well he's a top 20 qb!") look at how low the bar is set.

    at best we can move on this year and start a qb competition, or draft a guy. other teams can get something out of their 7th rounders so it's not some crazy out there idea that we could find a few qbs to battle it out and at least one to be as average as tanne.

    at worst we could ride it out with tanne and his atrocious contract this year and then be done with him.

    extending him would be absolutely ridiculous and our new gm would be a fool to do it.

    This is an argument to just throw any QB out there. Just not THill.
    Any unknown would be better if I’m reading this correctly.

    I suppose this might be support for Dobbs vs whoever for starter.

    If that’s the case, phone it in as a fan. At least we’ll get an early pick in 2024 and I’m told that’s worth getting excited for.

    Tannehill although not elite did play well before Downing and the OL fell apart...I'm not a huge Tannehill fan but I'm curious to see what happens with Downing gone, WR and OL improvements. Of course a restructuring needs to be done, he's not worth what he's making and the cap restraints it puts on this team

    If he doesn't restructure, move on

    thing is if T17 dont restructure ( and zero reason not to IMO ) then his CAP hit is like $15m a season for 23 & 24 if I understand it correctly

    although this is doable its still onerous
