    Those of you down on Mariota because of injuries and think Tannehill should start need to remember Tannehill has missed 24 games the last three seasons.

    It’s why the Fins went in another direction.

    Tannehill is a big jump talent-wise for a #2 but you can bet JRob will keep his QB file updated as neither of his QBs have shown they can stay on the field.

    I wouldn't. If needed, we could tag Mariota, or resign Tanny, or someone else as a bridge for a rookie.

    This year first three picks get made. DL, edge, WR, maybe a C.

    Nope. Even if that’s the concern, next year has more QBs and might as well draft high.

    I was referring to Gabbert. Opinions may vary, but I personally believe that the offense didn't game much of a hit when he came in, MOST games. Mariota is clearly the better QB, but his superiority didn't reflect in his production nearly as much as it should have.

    Very difficult to say that Tannehill is worse than Mariota, IMO. He's certainly as productive, or even more so in many instances.

    I am betting we are drafting a QB this or next year...bank it. I think Jrob and co. are over the injuries and antics.

    I remember arguing with people that we should still want Manning despite having Jake Locker on the roster. Does this mean Peyton Manning wasn’t a franchise QB?

    Tannehill is just an older Mary.

    All signs pointing to us moving on if Mary continues to miss time.

    He looks more experienced, calmer. Mariota looks like he doesn't know what the hell he is doing far too often.

    I'd be more excited for Tannehill to be the starting QB. The difference between he and Mariota- Tannehill makes perfect throws. Throws which eradicate perfect coverage and give the receivers an opportunity to make a play. The ball placement is basically the equivalent of gently handing the ball to someone-it falls right into their hands with perfect touch. More YAC opportunities because he throws receivers into space. He doesn't do it consistently, but he does it every game. Mariota makes easy throws which require minimal anticipation and more separation. There's a reason why Tannehill has thrown over 4,000 twice, and Mariota has come nowhere close . And also why Tannehill gets more balls into the end zone.

    The writing is on the wall. Unless Mariota has an incredible season, his time as a Titan is quickly coming to an end. Going to be 3 or 4 really upset people in Nashville and a lot of very happy fans.
