The point wasn't that Jackson or for that matter any other QB in the draft or on the streets would have made up the lower rating, the point was that the lower rating is BECAUSE we have Tannehill.
And as long as we continue to hope, pray and insist, stomp our feet or bust out crying that somehow, someway Tannehill at 30 today, 40 in ten years or 50 in twenty will ever round into the QB needed these Dolphins will continue to be rated along with other bottom feeders.
And by the way, I'm glad to see that Tannehill's health has entered the conversation now as a deterrence to criticism of future performance. I guess we must have already exhausted poor coaching, lousy oline, lack of skill player support, and the price of onions in Greenland.
I don't see the same things you seem to be seeing. I don't see anyone, on this board anyway, insisting, stomping feet, or crying about Tannehill. I wonder is that some kind of projecting? I also don't see people using Tannehill's health as a deterrence of criticism of future performance.
Most of the people on the board that I have seen post understand Tannehill's short comings. They also want competition at the QB spot. Knowing his limitations I have also seen people want to improve the team so the team does better.
Maybe it is just different perspectives?
