    That's no fun. It's about risking your rep with speculation. Everybody has the SAME answer in December.

    I was already on the “keep THill” idea.

    I mentioned it in another thread, keep THill as the vet for a rookie next season to sit behind. If he makes it the full year, great. The rookie got an entire year of learning.
    If he only makes it a few weeks, great. Hopefully the rookie is ready to go.

    Either way, provided his agent doesn’t aim for unrealistic goals, THill should get a very manageable 3 yea contract to continue as the vet starter/mentor backup for whichever rookie we get.

    No matter what, move on from MM.

    If he leads us to the playoffs and plays well along the way, I say keep him. But we gotta have a plan to draft a QB soon. My idea is to trade down and get as many 2021 high draft picks that you can so we can draft Lawrence No. 1 overall.

    Until he proves otherwise, he's the guy. You draft a QB with the hopes that they throw 300+ yards and have a 100+ QB rating. If it continues, it wouldn't be smart to roll the dice and assume we can develop the next superstar. That's backfired numerous times.

    Money? Starting qb is gonna cost about 25 -30 million per....and of course, assuming Mahomes comes back from his injury the same he is going to drastically change the qb pay scale.

    Regardless we need to be drafting for the future. 1. Tannehill isn't a young guy. 2. Tannehill has a history of injuries. 3. If we find a good value for a future qb in the draft, we need to take it.

    He is a starter and deserves to be paid like it
