Wait a minute. Did JMP just say we have decent receivers to support his argument?
Fasano gets cases of the dropsies and does not usually produce. Bess doesn't score points. Hartline does produce but he can't stay on his feet... and Bush is probably the best threat of the bunch.. But, we don't throw it too him enough.
I can't believe after all the BASHING about how this team has no pass catching threats.. That you just said that. Lmao.
Tannehill has a pretty good O-line. And Reggie Bush. That's basically it. We need upgrades at WR across the board. We need upgrades at TE as well. These are our pass catching threats. Other then Bush. HAS to be among the worst supporting casts in the league. And THAT.. my friend is what Ryan Tannehill is working with.
IMO Bess is a very good slot receiver, at times excellent, and I've said that about him from day one.
Reggie Bush is one of the top receiving backs in the NFL.
Fasano ain't Gronkowski, but he's a solid, lunchpail-type.
As for Hartline, I never liked him as a receiver and I've had to endure posters calling me crazy for having that opinion for years. Now that I'm finally starting to come around on him, I get laughed at.
We absolutely have no #1 receiver or #1 TE, and I've been saying that all along. But that doesn't mean that every single player on the team is a bad receiver...that's just not the case.
RGIII has a QBR of over 100...and he doesn't have a #1 receiver or the running game Tannehill has. I understand that people love Tannehill and want him to succeed. No one wants that more than me, and I was on the Tannehill bandwagon before it was even built. But I gotta call it like I see it...Tannehill is struggling and he has not shown any glimpses of greatness yet. That doesn't mean he never will, it just means that he's much further behind than I ever expected. You can blame it on the receivers all you want, but the problems I see with Tannehill are on him - they're not due to his receivers. Locking onto receivers and inaccurate passes are the biggest issues right now, and that's not the fault of the receiving corps.
Anyways IMO all one needs to do is look at Cam Newton to know that it's way too early to say what Tannehill is.
It's never too early to tell what a QB is
...just watch him play. The unknown is what the QB will be
, and you usually see some evidence of what that will be in year one.
