Can Ryan Tannehill be THE GUY for Tennessee?

Recommended Posts

Tannehill had several solid seasons in Miami. The Titans are 3-1 with Tannehill. Titans have more talent than the Dolphins did.

Can this work long term?

They won't draft high enough to get a premier prospect. He's acceptable for a bridge

Yes. Guy can ball. If he can stay healthy and remain consistent, he is a top 10ish qb. Guy is accurate, surprisingly athletic and big.

Will it he fend off Mariota for the jerb for the remainder of this season?

Of course he will but both are FAs after this year. He might be brought back as a bridge to a rookie QB but in no way should he thought of as the guy. He could lead them to the playoffs and I still wouldn’t consider him the guy.

Tannehill is inconsistent. He'll show flashes of greatness and then look bad in a big game. You just never know what you're going to get from him. But he was never trash. He's a serviceable starter.

I honestly think he can revive his career and become a Top 15 QB with them. Tannehil has always been super talented.

He's the best QB out of the 2012 class so they should make him the guy.

Why is he surprisingly athletic? He was a scholarship WR for Texas A&M (a big college).

Tannehill isn’t a QB that’ll be more spectacular than his supporting cast, but I think if you load up an offense around him, he could be a guy you could win with. I think with good, consistent coaching that he can be an Alex Smith type QB. Similar to what I believe Teddy Bridgewater is/can be at this point. Not a big time thrower but if all else is going well, he probably won’t be the reason you fail. 

That said, I don’t think Tennessee has the coach to facilitate him in that way. The talent is about there, but the offense is still pretty so-so.

Yep. If the team is good enough around him, I think he could lead a 10-6 type team, maybe 11-5. But the team has got to be there around him.

This was my worry for the Titans. They're an above average QB away from really making a lot of noise, the can really compete at a high level and might start getting really hot (if they're not already).

The offense is starting to take hold now that Tannehill is in - Derrick Henry is the lynchpin of the offense with 20+ touches a game on the low end, and a QB like Tannehill is the ideal caretaker for that offense: He's a game manager who can put together an "elite" drive or two when needed. 

Titans are primed to go on a very dangerous run right now. The only thing that can get in the way of the Titans are... well, the Titans.

Don’t see why not, as long as he puts those practice squad guys in their place.
