Or get one In free agency. I like Bowe. I think there's some smoke and mirrors with Colston. Brees can make any WR look like a pro- bowler.

flashes the arm talent and playmaking ability that makes him a top prospect: extends the play moving to his left, resets then drives an intermediate ball w/ velocity into the 2nd/3rd level of the secondary
@4:55
works a full field progression moving right to left, finds his backside (probably 3rd option) and delivery a good ball on time on target
@6:06
again working full field progression from right to left, finds backside WR on a streak delivers accurate deep ball

These are examples of what I see and like from Tannehill skillset that makes him an attractive option for this team/offense
I like how quickly Tannehill moves through his progressions when the concepts are simple. He typically doesn't spend time on covered receivers, which makes him different than Foles. I would suggest though that he's not doing full field reads so much as he's just using his eyes to move a free safety against an expected coverage. Which, of course, is an NFL skill that quarterbacks need.

Tannehill had some more troubling film down the stretch this season (2011), but at least that seven game run in 2010 culminating in the Cotton Bowl gives you a good glimpse of what you have when the player is well coached to use his eyes arm and feet first.

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search



I really like how Tannehill is controlling the line of scrimmage here. He's got LSU jumping all over the place. He didn't throw the ball particularly well in this game, but he's clearly got those innate game management skills.

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

and Tripp I agree... i believe Tannehill has the moxy, ability to handle pressure, and cerebral need to suceed in this league.
a few weapons, good run game and decent line... i think h'ed shine.

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

I think we should contact Patrick Ramsey and see if he has completed Memory Eradication 101.

Seriously, 4 months of this talk is going to get exhausting!

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

I forgot to mention my nit-picks with Tannehill:

o I noticed a tendency where he lets his arm and elbow drop which lowers his throwing height and combined with his regular use of a 3/4 release imo results in more passes being batted down then should happen for a 6'4 QB

I would prefer if he would keep his arm and elbow up and fully extend his arm overhead.

I also feel like he lacks the confidence of trusting in his athleticism/playmaking.
I think he passes up the chance to adlib and make a good play in favor of sticking with a play that the defense has covered. (b/c of Sherman's predictable playmaking)
But, I think that confidence will come with experience.

I wish Russell Wilson wasn't 5'11

I'd pay a high price to get Sam Bradford. Love him.

You laugh but I think Tebow could be a beast at TE. I wonder if , at some point, he might consider a position switch.

Someone mentioned Tebow as a Red Zone QB specialist. Why not? He could become the NFL's first TE and Inside the 5-Yard Line Red Zone QB Specialist.

Which is impressive considering he was a starting WR during his freshman and sophomore years at A&M. In fact they mention in that highlight that he's the 5th leading receiver in A&M history. If he's this good at QB now with such limited experience, I'm sure he's got lots of room to improve.

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

Foles is the 3rd best QB in this draft, not Jones, not Tannehill. In my opinion he's the one to watch.

The biggest thing with Tannehill is figuring out why he regressed at the end of his senior year as a passer. I don't have an answer, just a question. Could be a team-oriented issue. It's just when you have a guy who hasn't played a lot of college football at quarterback, and he's beating ranked teams right away because the position is a natural fit, you don't expect him to struggle with more experience. Tannehill did.

One thing I can't deny is that he faced some really good defensive teams in a short time as a starting QB at Texas A&M.

The other thing that's weird with Tannehill: in the first half of 2011, he rushed for 231 yards on 29 carries and three TDs. In the second half of 2011, he rushed for 75 yards on 29 carries and one TD.

Tannehill was a completely different player in the second half of the season, and I have no idea why that was

Dude link was ok. I was reading the part at the bottom about Jared Crick. I know he is not a need but being a CornHusker fan and next year a Husker i watch him and man he would be like the DE version of Kerrigan. Never gives up and is quite talented.
