Why Ryan Tannehill will be the starter in 2014

Maybe he was good. Maybe he deserves to be replaced. Maybe he deserves more time.

None of that matters.

What does matter is this one stat: his jersey was #9 on the list of top-selling jerseys in the entire NFL. That makes him a marketable commodity and that is way more important than wins and losses.

So no way do the fins want to disrupt that trend in sales. In many ways a popularity contest wins.

Well, he is trending down now. He was #4 last week.
Jersey sales aren't going to factor into it, otherwise Tebow would still be in the league.
