Dolphins RB Reggie Bush Says Rookie QB Ryan Tannehill Will Likely Be No. 3
The safe assumption is that veteran quarterbacks David Garrard and Matt Moore will battle for the Miami Dolphins' starting job, while first-round draft pick Ryan Tannehill -- who had just 19 starts at quarterback at Texas A&M-- sits, watches and learns. At least that's what Dolphins running back Reggie Bush expects to happen. "I would probably agree with you on that," Bush told Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald in a Sunday column. "Ryan can watch the veterans and learn. When he gets the call, he'll be ready." According to Jackson, and most of the media that observed the team on a daily basis during OTAs and the team's June minicamp, Garrard appears to have the inside track for the job. How the 33-year-old will hold up physically after back surgery, however, is yet to be determined.
Exactly, these are Rodgers first looks on the field considering he came in against prevent.
He had 4 turnovers in his first 2 years with no TD's and completed less than 50% of his passes. I know it's a small sample size but I remember people saying "oh he didn't show anything so he can't replace Favre" so I guess you don't know. I think Tannehill is lucky he can sit and learn because as ready as Luck is and even RGIII for that matter, they are rookies and who knows how they will handle the speed and disappointment of a shaky rookie season.
And Tannehill has had only 19 starts as a qb. New position and just getting the mechanics down somewhat. Let him sit for a year. With the rookie contracts only 4 years you really can't let him sit too long.
you could easily let them sit 2-3 years still, fans wouldnt like it but if hes ready to take over in that 3rd year he would likely have a big pay check coming his way regardless.
thats WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY better than seeing a guy like kolb or cassel, or flynn play a few games and throw a bunch of money/picks/players at a team for them, at least you know what you have in your own guy rather than just what youve been coaxed by coaches like andy reid into thinking you have
