Via No Guts, No Glory:

Ryan Tannehill is Mike Pouncey’s guy. We get that. Pouncey is Tannehill’s center, so it’s only natural for him to throw as much praise as he can at Tannehill.

So when asked how he thinks Tannehill matches up with fellow rookie quarterbacks Robert Griffin III and Andrew Luck, Pouncey easily proclaims that Tannehill is the best of the bunch.

“I think he’s the best rookie quarterback in the NFL right now,” Pouncey said of Tannehill, taken by Miami with the No. 8 pick in last April’s NFL draft. “Without his success that he’s having right now, we wouldn’t be the 3-3 Dolphins that we are.”

“I think he’s better than RG3,” Pouncey said of Tannehill. “Their games are different. RGIII can throw, but he can also run. Tannehill’s a smart quarterback.

Now comparing Tannehill to other rookie quarterbacks is one thing. But Pouncey takes it a step further and says Tannehill will end up being like Tom Brady.

I think he’s going to be one of those elite guys like Tom Brady when it comes said and done. Just his composure. His leadership in the huddle right now is just phenomenal. … I do see Tom, and the way he coordinates and runs his offense is the same as Tannehill does.”

We understand that’s your quarterback and all, but please settle down, Mike.

Mike Pouncey: Ryan Tannehill is NFL’s best rookie QB, will be like Tom Brady

You could easily make the argument that Ryan Tannehill has exceeded expectations as the starting quarterback of the Miami Dolphins this season. His TD-to-interception ratio of 4-to-6 is underwhelming, but Tannehill’s quarterback rating of 75.8 is not all that bad for a rookie leading an offense. Most importantly, he has played well enough to lead the Dolphins to a 4-3 record. But...

Dolphins like Tannehill more than Colts' Luck

DAVIE, Fla. -- The "Suck for Luck" campaign was in full force a year ago. The Miami Dolphins were 0-7 and in position to land Andrew Luck with the top pick in the NFL draft. It didn't happen. The Dolphins suddenly turned matters around and finished 6-10. Indianapolis ended up with the highly touted quarterback. But the Dolphins have come out OK. They managed to get...

Can the Patriots offense get better?

If you ask Tom Brady, yes. Yes, it can.ProFootballTalk“I hope so. I hope we make improvements,” Brady said, via the Boston Herald. “There’s still a lot of football left. We’re 5-3 so that tells you we’ve been a little bit up and down. It hasn’t been terrible. It hasn’t been great and we have a lot of room for improvement, so we’ll see how that goes over the course...

Brady’s Season Has Been One Of His Best

My dad is good for many things. Picking up the tab at dinner. Telling me stories about Mickey Mantle. Falling asleep with his mouth open on the couch. More than all of those, though (well, except the dinner one), he’s best at good ol’ fashioned football talk. For years, the Red Sox – and baseball – were his baby, but as the Patriots have become a surefire 11-win each year...

Reflections at 4-4

Louis Bacigalupi posts comments on the site as LouieLouie.  He’s an accountant by trade and worked in a USFL front office.  He can be reached by email at Louie@fiercelyI.com.
