Ryan Tannehill may not be Dolphins' QB answer, says Adam Schefter

Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE

ESPN NFL analyst Adam Schefter is not fully convinced that Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill is the long-term answer. What did he have to say in a radio interview on the Sid Rosenberg Show?

Even though Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill is only in his first season in the NFL, he is being overshadowed by other rookie quarterbacks such as Indianapolis Colts' Andrew Luck, Washington Redskins' Robert Griffin III and Seattle Seahawks' Russel Wilson. ESPN NFL analyst Adam Schefter, during an interview Monday on the Sid Rosenberg Show on 640-AM, wondered if Tannehill was going to be the answer:

"I'm not as convinced [they have their QB] as I was six weeks ago," said Schefter. "Week after week Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson continue to make plays and continue to win games. You walk away from their games and say, 'Those guys are really good.' Have we done that with Ryan Tannehill?"

So far this season, Tannehill has thrown for 2,709 yards while completing 57.3 percent of his passes. He has thrown for eight touchdowns while throwing 12 interceptions and has fumbled the football four times. Schefter does acknowledge that it's too soon to give up on Tannehill, but reiterated that he has not been impressed with him as the season has progressed:

"I'm not saying Ryan Tannehill is not going to turn out to be a great quarterback," said Schefter. "He may, but I don't know right now. All I'm saying is I haven't walked away from a Miami Dolphins game in a good month, saying, 'That quarterback was really impressive.'"

Tannehill and the Dolphins next play on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars at Sun Life Stadium. The game is scheduled for a 1 p.m. kickoff and will be broadcast on CBS.
