Gunslingers like that have great games once and a while, but they're inconsistent, and they throw a lot of interceptions. I don't want Tannehill to be that type of quarterback.
And those guys will never win a SB. Look at Vick, he takes so many sacks because he doesn't know where to throw the ball agaisnt the blitz. Tanny does.
I agree, the best quarterbacks are the guys that stick to their gameplan, know their strengths, they take what the defense gives, and they attack or exploit a weakness if they see it. Tannehill isn't quite there yet, he's still prone to some rookie mistakes, but he's showing signs that he can be that type of quarterback in time.
I disagree totally. Luck was the better QB last week. He made several ill-advised throws but came away with a win. Dan Marino used to throw people open. Look how many Picks Peyton Manning has thrown this year...yet he has his team winning.
Throwing the ball into double coverage and throwing the receiver open are two completely different things. What Luck did was throw into double coverage, he just got lucky. If our defenders hang on to a couple of those throws we win that game easily.
Tannehill is winning games for his team too, he's only one win behind Manning and the Broncos. Manning is very safe with the football (6 INT), so is Tannehill (6 INT), they're both not even in the top half of the league in interceptions. But do you know who is? Tony Romo, Michael Vick, Jay Cutler, and every other gunslinger in the NFL. Do you know who isn't, Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers, the guys Tannehill studied in the offseason. I'm just fine with Tannehill being in the bottom half of the league in interceptions with Manning, Brady, and Rodgers. That's just fine with me.
