You had 4 realistic options (given that Ireland wasn't outbidding Washington for Griffin):
Give Moore a one year audition
Overpay Alex Smith to be a game manager
Overpay Matt Flynn to be a game manager
Draft a QB
I honestly think Tannehill will be fine and by fine I mean a good starting QB who will win games. Is he the answer and a franchise guy? I don't know. I like his potential better than Barkley or Smith.
I agree Jam.....
I also agree. If you look at those top 3 options, all come with an extreme risk of giving a big contract to guys who have not impressed in their careers outside of 2011, or a single game or two.
Tannehill wasn't a reach and was the right choice for Miami.
Now, let's hope he stays healthy and continues to develop.
