Please god, no.

Miami would benefit so much more by taking Desean Watson next year and grabbing an RB in the 2nd than keeping Tannehill under center.

Don't think I'd ever trust starting Ajayi this season, especially with that offense struggling. But he warrants an end of the bench stash imo.
He's on the wire in a couple of my leagues. Could do worse as a free hold and pray.

Not a bad idea, but I think this management team is pretty clueless, so there's no guarantee they're going to do the smart thing.

It was shocking watching Suh last night. It's like you wear teal (the uniforms last night were hideous, by the way) and you lose talent.

I think it's fairly clear that the REAL weakness in Miami is their Offensive Line. That line needs an overhaul in a bad way. There is so very little time to throw. The protection last night was horrific. I know Tannehill gets no love around this site but.... in my opinion, very few qb would thrive in that situation.

Ajayi looked good in flashes. He ran strong, protected the ball, and even had a couple nice blocks while asked to help protect. The holes were there a few times. Other times... nothing. Pead looked like a FA waiting to happen. He is a non factor. I was surprised at the lack of involvement with Drake though. And, if Miami actually reaches and tries to draft a RB early in next years draft. They deserve what is coming to them. They will be celler dwellers of their division if they try to reach on a RB unless said rb is a transcendent talent. That certainly doesn't happen often...

It doesn't take a seasoned NFL GM to see that the REAL need here is some football players up front. Their skilled position players in Tannehill, Ajayi, Parker, and Landry are good enough to compete at the NFL level. Their Offensive line is simply preventing that from happening.

This is not a mystery folks.

I agree 100%. Its a shame that people think Tannehill is a bad QB, he might be, but we won't know with that O line. I real under performer is the GM.

The management is horrific, and you can't think of many trades they've won lately. But to be fair to the line, Tunsil is a great value pick, their second string centre is playing hurt, and Albert is banged up. It's not the best bunch in the league when healthy, but they've had some bad luck as well.

Thing is, is there an O lineman that would justify a top five pick? Johnson of the Seminoles, maybe?

This is a team that earned a loss to the browns but was gifted the win.

That O-line is definitely suspect, it needs help. But Tannehill does certainly suck.

If Tom Brady was playing behind that line; He'd have retired by now.


Tannehill is lucky to have the limited and sporadic success that he has had. All things considered.

I hate blanket statements like "He Sucks". Far too many varables to even give statements like that any merit. Clearly, he doesn't suck. The GM and owner ship desperately need to get their heads out of their @$$#s.

We don't know if he sucks yet because he really hasn't been given a fair shake. Bottom line.

The realistic upside of Ajayi is that he breaks his leg, gets cut with an injury settlement and starts for a new team next year that is intelligent enough to put some faith in him and put him on the field behind a competent offensive line rather than making him split carries with Damien Williams and Isaiah Pead.

Okay, so Ajayi had three good carries last week.

Still needs to do way more before I'll decide to give a crap again. The hole he's dug for himself to start this year is so deep.

Does the 'dance' emoji specifically mean 'the previous statement is tripping on acid'? If so, I was not aware.

Is Ajayi actually startable now or is his a fluke? I have not watched any of the game, but he has some good stats and does not look like its flukey. Pitt has a decent run d as far as I know.

He's having a good game. Most RB's have at one time or another. I don't really think this changes anything. The truthers are going to beat their chests, and the nay sayers are going to say it's a fluke.
