Ryan Tannehill – 2012 Fins Starting QB

August 20, 2012

 

A New Era begins.

 

Well fellow Fins lovers, we have been in this position before (far too many times).  A new Quarterback has been named for the up coming season for the Miami Dolphins, rookie Ryan Tannehill.  He has looked promising in the pre-season up to this point, and in my opinion has earned the starting spot for the Dolphins this camp.

You will see many articles come out talking about how many QB’s the Fins have gone through since Marino retired in 99.  It is hard to blame them since it is such an easy (and lazy) story to write in this situation.  As fans I think we should use a form of selective hearing.  You know, when your wife or girlfriend is attempting to talk for like an hour during a game?  When the media babbles on about will RT be the next Miami QB to add to the list, I think we need to just nod our heads and pretend to listen while focusing in on each and every game, saving our criticism until we see this thing play out.  You all know I have been a Matt Moore supporter because I think he played well last year and he has been a great team player with the other QB’s during camp this year.  He needed to jump out and look better than Tannehill to keep the position and he just hasn’t done that yet.

Ryan Tannehill looks tough out there and the game doesn’t seem “too big” for him.  He seems to have the respect of his teammates already and is proving to work really hard at his craft.  He has made mistakes, he has telegraphed some passes and he has some room to learn.  That is what we call a ROOKIE.  As this season progresses let’s all remind ourselves that this is his first year playing and to look at the roster he is working with.  Who knows, maybe he will surprise us and make some of these younger receivers look better?  One thing is for sure; from what I’ve seen so far he will be working hard and giving everything he’s got for the team, whether you originally wanted him here or not.

How much will you be backing Tannehill this year?  Will you jump ship and be cheering for him to be benched with his first bad game?  Let’s be smarter and more logical than the feeding frenzy media and show what classy fans the Miami Dolphins really have.
