IMO Shaw would be a better selection than JF ..Shaw is a leader..Johnny M is an "I got this" kind of guy.....You dont need a guy that thinks he is all that. TEAM is what Shaw is about..NEVER once did I see Shaw claim HE was the one that WON A GAME..

But he was. It's evident now how much Shaw, Clowney and Hampton meant to the team last year.

I hope you're joking. I'm not a huge Tannehill fan, but he's not even close to being one of the three worst quarterbacks in the league.

In addition, he's significantly better than Shaw. If you subbed Shaw in for Tannehill this season, the Dolphins would struggle to win 4 games.

Tebow had nice college stats too, we all saw how that panned out.. Hoyer played 3 good games last year before he got hurt, so I guess that shows he's a better QB, huh? Connor Shaw is just like Russel Wilson, IMO Wilson is just a little more athletic, Shaw is accurate and completes his passes at a pretty high percentage, he's very decisive, doesn't make a lot of mistakes, very smart player!
The Shaw-Wilson comparisons are desperate. Wilson is a much better quarterback and NFL prospect. Shaw is a better athlete.

There's a reason Manziel was a first round selection and Shaw was an UDFA who's likely to end up on a practice squad. No GM would have taken Shaw over Manziel in this draft or right now.

Shaw was awesome for our school and competed hard every single game, but the NFL isn't the University of South Carolina. Shaw's going to have a much harder time paving a long career in the NFL simply because he's not the mold of a starting or backup quarterback. He's got to get much better as a passer.

You're not following directions. I asked for specific reasons why Shaw is not as good as Tannehill.

My guess is you can't provide any because you just speak in generalities, like "this person is better than that person because I say so". You have a very low sports IQ.

And anyone who thinks Tannehill is better then one of the worst quarterbacks in the league is obviously a big fan

E.J. Manuel, whoever Oakland's QB ends up being (Schaub), Ryan Fitzpatrick, Geno Smith, Shaun Hill (Rams), Bryan Hoyer, Matt Cassell, Jake Locker, Josh McCown, Chad Henne.

That's 10 starting QBs that are pretty definitively worse than Tannehill at this point in time. There are a number of other QBs I'd take him over as well.

This is a good piece of analysis explaining what makes Tannehill a good QB. By PFF's grading system, he had the 5th best season of any QB last season.

Among the reasons I'd take Tannehill over Shaw: better size, arm, athleticism. And he's proven it at the NFL level with a mediocre at best supporting cast in Miami.

They have too many other needs to carry three qbs on the active roster. So they probably better carry a guy on the practice squad.

Just a guess, but that could mean he has not cleared waivers yet. All teams have to pass on the waivers, so he may be held up by a team. SI said he was tops on the PS list for the Browns.
