There's been a lot of talk about rookie QBs. RGIII is runing wild and Andrew Luck is leading the Colts but there's another rookie QB that had better numbers this week than either of them: Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill.
In just his fourth game as a pro, Ryan shattered the team record for single-game passing yardage by a rookie. Tannehill was 26 of 41 for 431 yards, eclipsing Dan Marino's mark of 322. Tannehill's rookie mark was second in NFL history only to CarolinaPanthers quarterback CamNewton, who rattled off 432 yards in a game last season. This could be the start to roll that see Ryan become the best NFL rookie QB in history.
With all that, why aren’t you paying attention to Ryan Tannehill?
