While I was elated to be rid of Arrogant Adam Gase, I have a bit of a heavy heart in saying goodbye to Ryan Tannehill.
He did some good things here, and you guys know, I always appreciated his toughness and loyalty. However, his faults were simply too many to be ignored and too serious to be tolerated.
Listen, Adam Gase’s playcalling put Tannehill in a position to fail. But sometimes, even when you’re in a losing position, you need to make things happen. RT17 rarely did that. He’s going to be a Titan now, and with oft-injured, gimpy Marcy Mariota on that team, that means Tannehill will play about 13 games.
It also means that poor Cameron Wake is stuck with RT on his team for the immediate future. Again.
So I bid goodbye to Ryan. I will miss Lauren even more.
While there is much to criticize, I’ll leave him on a positive note and thank him for his fortitude while playing for a series of know-nothing coaches in unsuccessful schemes behind a shitty O-line.
