The Miami Dolphins have been looking for their next franchise quarterback for what seems like a lifetime. In actuality, it’s been 12.5 years since the day Dan Marino officially retired from the Dolphins….it has just felt like a lifetime! When the Dolphins selected Ryan Tannehill with the #8 overall pick, it was the first time they used a first round pick on a quarterback since they took Dan Marino in 1983.
Ryan Tannehill has only played in 4 NFL games and he’s had his great moments and his bad moments. He’s a rookie quarterback, who is still adjusting to the speed of the NFL, as well as opposing defenses. Needless to say, he has a lot to learn and a lot of improving to do. However, Dolphins fans have to be encouraged by what they have seen thus far. I feel confident saying, and this is only my humble opinion, but I think that Tannehill is The One.
