Ryan Tannehill, Tennessee Titans:
The mystery that is Ryan Tannehill might never be solved, after leaving Miami and reviving his career in Tennessee the media and the public pointed the finger at the Dolphins and said they’re the problem. After a breakout 2019 season Tannehill came back with a strong 2020, and held his own in 2021 despite losing RB Derrick Henry for most of the season.
Tannehill gets the job done in the regular season, however most people are starting to catch up to his post-season struggles and the causes for it. It’s a simple explanation honestly, Vrabel’s offense is built on the base of a power football team.
Even with Derrick Henry out they managed to maintain this identity, and at times Tannehill had moments of brilliance but again that is in the comfort of the regular season. Expectations were brought down tremendously once the team got decimated, Tannehill was playing with no pressure.
Tannehill faced no major adversity until the playoffs, and once it was time to make plays in tough situations the makeup came off. Revealing what Tannehill really is. A talented QB that can front run with the best in the league, but crumbles in the big stage when facing life or death type adversity.
For 3 years straight every time a team managed to hold Derrick Henry in check in the playoffs, Tannehill crumbled to the pressure of being forced to throw.
But even with all that being said Tannehill rounds out the top 10 because even with the playoff failures, he’s had ‘some success’ in the post season. Maybe not entirely cause of him but success nevertheless.
