We need to start designing screen passes, plain and simple....that would be a huge step in the right direction.

That won't be a major focus if the OL can't hold up blocks in those situations.

Post PFF - QBs in Focus: Ryan Tannehill
I don't like to post full articles, but this was very informative. Be sure to click the 3 stat images in the middle.

QBs in Focus: Ryan Tannehill
Steve Palazzolo | July 24, 2014

Though we certainly miss football during the offseason, it’s always a good time to take a step back and analyze our plethora of data.

We’re often so busy grading and collecting data during the season that we’re unable to put a lot of the information to good use. With that said, we’ve decided to declare June as “QB Month” as we break down NFL quarterbacks every which way.

We’re going to examine quarterbacks from a number of situations before looking at each of them individually. The grades and numbers should reveal each quarterback’s strengths and weaknesses from the 2013 season.

As we go through this series, it’s important to understand the relationship between QB Rating (NFL’s version) and PFF Grade.

While QB Rating is obviously supposed to be a QB statistic, it’s actually a better gauge of what the entire offense did in a given situation. This is the type of information that is actually extremely valuable to our NFL team customers as their game planning efforts must go towards stopping an entire passing offense, not just the quarterback.

If the quarterback throws an easy dump off pass to the RB who then weaves through the defense for the touchdown, it’s certainly not a great indicator of quarterbacking skill as it is the running back and defense accounting for the majority of the work on the play. Of course the QB Rating will look quite shiny in that situation.

On the other hand, PFF Grade is a good indicator of how well the quarterback actually performed in a given situation. Whether they throw an accurate pass that was dropped, or perhaps an inaccurate one that should have been intercepted and the defense dropped, the PFF grade will account for those situations with a positive and a negative grade respectively while QB Rating will simply reflect the 0-for-1 passing.

It’s important to distinguish between QB Rating and PFF grade, though there’s a good chance they’ll match up in most situations.

After taking a look at the entire league in various situations, it’s time to break down each quarterback individually.

So let me get this right, Tanne was pressured less than the NFL avg and we still gave up 58 sacks.

That is a scary stat.

And the "experts" act like having all new starters on the OL is a bad thing...what the hell would they be saying if we retained all 5 guys from last season who were actually responsible for it all? Smh.

I think it was Sporting News that recently did an analysis of the most HIT QBs in the NFL, including sacks. Tannehill was top 5 with over 100 QB hits to go along with those 58 sacks. I'll try looking for it.

Actually NFL.com has Tannehill being hit 100 times on top of those 58 sacks. Which means he was hit or sacked on roughly 1/4 of this drop backs.

That combination of 58 sacks and 100 hits puts Tannehill as the most hit/sacked QB in the NFL.

Conversely, he is among the league's best when throwing out of a clean pocket.

Bottom line, we need to protect Tannehill for this offense to be successful.

Does PFF differentiate between shotgun and dropping back from under center?

I think they differentiate just about every possible scenario there is...if all the stats are genuine, all the work that is put into their numbers are incredible.
