People haven't followed Tannehill this season but he had an exceptional season. PFF has him as the highest ranked QB this season. And all of his advanced metrics are great. He's been very very efficient this year. He feasts in that offense getting playaction setup from the threat of the Henry run. 

Just goes to show how such metrics are simply a recap of history, and not a predictor of future results. Its nearly impossible to use them to make an informed decision.

 

He was traded for mid round picks, but was also drafted pick 8.

 

Would the true Ryan Tannehill please stand up.

I think metrics are important to consider, but be put into context and interpreted with the appropriate measure and respect. It's important to know what exactly changed and why, to what extent the change is sustainable, etc. 

 

For example, for as good as he's played(and the metrics show it), it's probably not very wise to assume he will continue to play at this level going forward. Tannehill had some real nice seasons before he suffered his injury in Miami and analysts were actually expecting him to blow up any moment, but injuries, poor coaching and playcalling, poor OLine and weapons derailed his development. I also don't think this is a regular situation that's happening. IMO it's more of an outlier - for every Tannehill that figures it out with a new system and coaches at a new place there are 10 Geno Smiths or Blaine Gabberts that never do.

Its nice information for playing around with, but it really isn't all that helpful.  Its usefulness is overstated, IMO.   

 

Insurance companies and credit card companies can use historical behavior to predict future results, because the universe is so huge and the basic environment is similar for all of those data points.....tens of millions of people.

 

The NFL only has 32 teams with 53 players.  The universe is tiny.  And its unique.  How would Tannehill perform on another team?  IDK, how many other teams have both Mike Vrabel as HC and Derrick Henry as RB?  0.  

 

The metrics in MIA are useless for judging how he would perform in TN, and so on.  The tape needs to be analyzed to see the conditions that were prevalent during each of his plays during his MIA tenure, then determine if those conditions would be similar at TN or different, and different in a way that's more favorable.

 

I think these metrics are useful for predicting behavior within a season, where the environment is consistent, like rosters and coaching staffs.  Good for choosing fantasy football teams each week.  Not so good for a lot else, IMO.

I wouldn’t take Love in the first round, because at 13 we can get the playmaker at either receiver or on the Dline. I’ll be fine with Love in the second round or we can trade up to mid 20’s and draft love

A QB is going to win you more games then a DT.  We can upgrade the Dline hopefully in FA.

Jones won’t be there in FA Armstead will be but Ballard isn’t paying a free agent 20 plus. Carr will be available this offseason hopefully and we can make a move on that. I like Love but I can see a little bit of Mitch in him which scares me

There are two positions Ballard will pay for. That is DT and DE. I think people misunderstand when they here him talk about FA.

Here is another stat:

 

No rookie QB has lead his team to the SB.

 

And Mark Sanchez and Joe Flacco are the only QBs to win multiple playoff games as rookies


Is this a case or an example not to possibly select a QB at 13?

Neither.  Just stating a fact.  If the Colts take a QB in the draft and start him, history would indicate the Colts will not be going to the SB in 2020.

 

If the Colts stay with JB, chances are they will not be going to the SB in 2020 (2021 to be precise)

 

If the Colts sign a free agent QB, chances are they will not be going to the SB in 2020 (2021 to be precise)

Bust might have been harsh but if he was great Miami wouldn’t have traded him to Tennessee. 

Miami got- 4th and 7th round picks 

Tennessee got- Ryan Tannehill, 6th round pick and Miami paid 5 million of his 7 million salary for 2019. 

 

Not exactly like they got a haul. They basically paid Tennessee to take him. 

 

they were tired of his injuries, RT missed more games than andrew luck did

Good point!!! We all know a strong running game and defense were big factors during their playoff runs, more than the QB play. 

 

When the QB play caught up and met the level of the defense for a perfect run of games, that is when the 2012 Flacco run happened.

    • Okay. Well a hernia is a pretty normal thing to get. You can get it from lifting a heavy box lol. The labrum injury (torn hip labrum) is serious. He recovered fine from it though. But the injury history with him is extensive going back to college   -Hernia -Torn hip labrum -Groin injury during training camp his rookie year -ACL tear -Missed 1 game his sophomore year with foot injury -Tore his Achilles this past season    But I don’t think his injuries coming out of college were anything to put a red flag on him for. If anything it was the rawness and lack of football experience that probably should have scared us off. 
    • You really don't need to feel bad for him. He'll get paid what he deserves. Whether that's with the Colts or not is another matter. If he really wants to remain a Colt, he'll probably have to take a little less than he would elsewhere but that's his decision to make.   He's a young man in the the physical prime of his life getting paid millions of dollars to play football and can stop at any point if he chooses. There's really not much to feel bad about lol.
    • Future highest paid guard in the league, future highest paid linebacker, top 5 paid tight tackle, has to be done 
    • See my post above, I honestly think it should be up to the person whether or not they want to file charges - I agree with you. If the person you injure doesn't want to press charges then I don't get why a Grand Jury has to get involved. It is a waste of time IMO at that point and even an annoyance to the person that doesn't want to press charges. 
    • One reason why Ballard is so careful with his money because he wants to make sure he has enough to sign his own stars. I almost see no way Big Q, Leonard, and Smith don't get long term deals soon. It pays to be patient and not overspend in Free Agency, that is why. We need to get Hines re-signed as well, we probably will but that is more of 60/40 chance IMO. 60% we will IMO, Big Q and Leonard are 100% IMO. Smith I would say 80% which is good.
