After Jarvis Landry put his foot in his mouth even some of the biggest Ryan Tannehill detractor fans came to show some support.

Even those in media followed suit. But some are taken to bash him. I will be rating those that rate Ryan Tannehill.

First I would like to state how I form my own basis. And that is not to rate wins as a QB stat. This means some effort to dig in to individual stats. Thankfully there are others that hold the same notion and have already done the legwork. And that work can be found online along with all the other normal stats to breakdown.

Those that cover the team have a somewhat tight spectrum on rating Ryan Tannehill. It falls in the range of slightly below average to slightly above average. And that seems fair. But filling in the dots goes anywhere from the guys a bum to he might become elite.

From low to high. This is how the following have been rating Ryan Tannehill lately.

Orlando Alzugaray: Has been one of the biggest detractors in the past. Pushed the term Tannekill, meaning a receiver could get hurt going for a reception if his head isn’t on a swivel. This came about after Dion Sims knocked himself out trying to catch a pass that was out-of-bounds in the end zone. Does this fall under the same category? The head on a swivel relates to other defenders and not knocking yourself out on the field itself which was an odd occurrence.

Omar Kelly: One thing he does is cover the team during OTA and mini camp. This can be taken for what it’s worth but he seems to always speak after the fact, like saying the best off-season he ever saw was from Chad Pennington as if he knew ahead of time. As far as his rating Ryan Tannehill he can be all over the road from high praise to the lowest of lows. This might be from covering so much of the off-season but variety is good. From what I heard from him lately he is down on Ryan Tannehill.

Antwan Staley: First off he is a Pats fan. But he is from Carolina: go figure. Lately he has been bashing Ryan Tannehill, but has for sometime now. Every once and awhile some praise will come out like the sun on a cloudy day. However most of the time it will have to be prodded out of him from someone else on whatever format he’s on. Rarely he will offer it up on his own which is like a double rainbow.

All of the above share some traits like never straying from bashing Ryan Tannehill. In fact it can be the whole show sans Kelly to reiterate about variety.

Channing Crowder: This is the guy with the most airtime that will stay positive when speaking of Ryan Tannehill. He even shutdown the queen of bashers Miko Grimes back when they were on the Baller Wives TV show. As a former player Crowder might know a thing or two about the inner workings of an NFL team and how much the relationship with the head coach means.

Zack Duarte: He does the post game shows and has always been a strong supporter as long as I have heard him which is a few seasons now. In fact I recall many shows where he would go around with detractors. Something I am not looking to do with this write-up. If Staley and Duarte went at it the transmitter might blow up. They are polar opposites.

Cian Fahey: He is a writer and has done / does radio as well. While not all in most times like the last two mentioned he will offer up the straight scoop. I am fond of his write-up on Mike Wallace and suggest it to anyone looking to see how he is as a writer and his angle on this subject. The Mike Wallace Effect, Deep Ball Accuracy and Ryan Tannehill.

Some others from blogs, Twitter or podcasts.

Travis Wingfield: he writes and does podcasts and shows support with film breakdowns made into animated Graphics Interchange Format as well. He is also active on Twitter.

Matty Infante: He and some others over at the Phinsider are supporters. And actively show it on twitter with shared stories GIFs and stats. One account is all Ryan Tannehill Facts (stats) which is @TannehillFact. Eric Elizondo is a strong backer and is good with GIF posts on Twitter.

Most of the above on the pro side like myself will reference Ryan Tannehill with his current situation that is tied to his coach Adam Gase. After all that is the system he plays under with the Miami Dolphins and will continue to do so when the season starts. The strong pro side have him not missing a beat. While the detractors stray from the reference all together and might bring up things like his injury.
