    It does, but I'm thinking along the lines of his salary hit next year.

    It's way too big. If he restructured, we could save over time.

    Tannehill will be here, anyway - we eat his contract no matter what.

    AND no other team will want to take on that salary in a trade.

    We are screwed no matter what. A restructure makes more sense to me - whether he starts or not.

    I'm starting to see McBride mocked in the 1st more and more.

    I know what your saying and honestly, whatever happens, I’m pretty much good with it. The bright side of riding him out this season with no restructure is next season, all the big penalties are dramatically reduced.

    I don’t see how he caught 91 passes and only had 1 TD

    Not an apologist, but he was sacked all over the place this year and still took the team to 12-5 against great teams without his main weapon (DH). Yes, I'm super frustrated at his poor performance in the post season this year, but with a new OC and all his main weapons injured at one point or another the dude deserves some credit. This team went 12-5 while never looking as solid as it did the previous two years. Its not like he just **** the bed- the offense never looked in sync this year. They need to figure that out.

    That said, this team hasn't sniffed 12-5 since the last time they were a one seed in 2008. We've been through how many high draft picks trying to get where we are? Get the dude a shrink and replace the posers (perhaps Lewan) on the O line and see what you got. Get a burner receiver and a stud tight end like KC has and then see what you got.

    Also, figure out how to get a worthy QB2 with high upside to put pressure on RT. This team is poised to be where KC was when it let go of Alex Smith, its just missing the Mahomes- unfortunately they don't grow on trees, especially when drafting at 25 or 26. Until then, he is better than all of the high drafts Tennessee has wasted on QBs over the last 16 years.

    KC had the 27th pick in the draft the year they drafted Mahomes. Of course they traded up to get him but it’s definitely possible to find the guy at the spot we are in.

    11-5 just last year. But point taken.

    Then they should do it, and let him sit until he has the offense down. Let that put pressure on RT to get his yips figured out. I'd love to have a QB controversy at the end of next season because we have stud in the waiting while the other guy is flying high.

    Good point- I meant we hadn't sniffed 12-5 before we got RT as out starter.

    Id be all for it if they felt there was a guy worthy of doing so. But with the Julio trade and no 2nd rounder I am highly skeptical we move up in the first round at all. Let alone for a QB.

    By the way, I haven’t checked out all of the QB’s yet but Carson Strong is the guy I like most as of now.
