If they wanted tp draft a young qb they had to go all in and build a pass happy team. Just bad strategy.
I completely agree with you. The Dolphins are letting Tannehill throw it 40 times per game, interceptions and all. Threw 3 picks his first game, they never tried to simplify the offense or put him on a leash. They're letting him throw his way through it. They're losing now, but it will pay off down the road.
Sanchez played great in his first game his rookie year. We come out the next week and throw 5 passes in the first half against the Patriots. We squeaked out some wins playing that way, but it's coming back to bite us now.
