You can say it's coaching. And that may be a contributing factor. You can blame it on a dumbed down playbook, and certainly that's part of it. But take a step back for a minute. Think about the position. Every great (or wanna be great) QB takes control on the field. They own it, and they don't take shnizzle from the coach. THEY lead the team.
In Miami, we hear that the coaches have told him to only do certain things, to not audible, to not question things. What great QB would ever accept that? What 8-15 QB would do that? Can you imagine a Marino, a Brady, a Manning just saying Okay? You could imagine them having a passionate discussion or facing some wrath because they didn't listen. Here, Tannehill just goes along with it.
Where is his moxie? His pride? His leadership? Will to win? Is it because he really can't handle the Offense? Or perhaps he just doesn't have any awareness on the field? Is he afraid of the coaches? IMHO there are no other options, and in every scenario you can see why he's not a leader. Why he shouldn't be starting in the NFL.
I posted yesterday near halftime they should bench him. And then he gets some gaudy stats in garbage time. Every "meaningful" stat he had yesterday is a lie, just like it is every week. He still has not a signature win, not a 4th quarter comeback. Nothing but meaningless numbers.
And then last night we heard Osweiller won the game because he called an audible. He saw something in the defense and made a change. And they won in OT. And Tannehill can't even call timeout when things are wrong.
And of course, there he was after the game complaining about the jets celebrating Matthews getting hurt. Look, I don't know if they were celebrating or not. What I do know is that's when you run over to your teammate and get in the defenses face. Instead of saying something at a press conference.
But I especially love the comeback from Pryor. Tweeted it right to him. That's being assertive and showing some passion...
