"Kelly is an egomaniac who thinks he knows the real deal and it is why I stopped reading anything from him."
Kelly is no different that anyone else. He has opinions. Look, Philbin shocked a lot of fans when he named RT the starter. I was personally pissed because he single handedly took my playoff hopes and flushed them before the football even took a meaningful snap. RT has played a lot better than I expected. As a comparison, he's about where Henne was right before mid-season in Henne's 2nd season. Does he get better, or does he just level out or get worse? Does he bounce back from this and play well? No one is calling for his head. But it would be nice to see him show some improvement down the stretch. Henne's problem...he was mentally fragile and pouted which made him play worse.
If you're speaking 100% in terms of stats, and nothing else, then yes there are a few similarities. But when you start to break the two players down, they are polar opposites. Henne struggled with the deep ball, Tannehill has one of the most accurate deep balls in the NFL. Henne struggled to read defenses and was reportedly not allowed to call audibles well into his 3rd season, Tannehill runs a hurry up and has full reign of the offense to call audibles and change protections, something Henne still struggles with as a veteran in his 5th year. Henne struggled against the blitz and often took coverage sacks, Tannehill is one of the most accurate passers in the NFL against the blitz. So while somebody found a few stats to match up, other than that these are two completely different guys in two completely different situations.
