"Ryan Tannehill is not only more NFL ready than RG3, he's a more gifted passer. System QBs don't translate to successful QB at the next level"

Those who can, do; those who can't, coach; those who never could, complain about the first two.
But mediocre college QBs who fold under pressure, do.
Im trying to be fair here but at times he really struggles with his objectivity.
Now that fan base will eat him alive if they don't sense the aggie love.
But you have to try to be an "objective homer" in that position.
Good god he really is kind of embarassing to this site as a whole. That crap that he spews is idiotic at best
Ole' frosted tips never fails to bring the lulz.
In response to this gem "Keep RG3 inside the pocket, force him to make decisions and it's game over." Someone with twitter should drop this little piece of knowledge on our aggy friend:
Completion percentage from the pocket:
- Andre Luck: 71.7%
- RGIII: 75.7%
Touchdowns thrown from the pocket:
- Andrew Luck: 28
- RG III: 31
INT's thrown from the pocket:
- Andrew Luck: 8
- RGIII: 3
Completetion % on passes 15+ yards from the pocket:
- Andrew Luck: 47.5%
- RGIII: 59.7%

He's a typical Aggie dolt and he's made the network look bad from the very start.

1) Every college QB is a product of a system.
2) It's not like Tannehill ran pro-style offense.
3) Ask him the results of Tannehill throwing between the hashes.
4) Hamm's a goober, which makes him a perfect aggy.
Signatures are stupid. You should block them.
Where did you get those stats?
Can't just talk smack unless you can source that.
Not that it stopped me from posting them to Hamm for brains.
I fired off some quick ones just now. For the interested (you should go retweet them all)...
Hamm doesn't like me and is immature, so odds are he'll be baited into some silly response.
I like Tannehill as a QB prospect, but taking him at 8th was dumb. And saying he's more ready than RG3 is dumber.

RRR and pepper11 got the ball rolling. Kudos to them. I'll just take upvotes and retweets. haha
Ryan Seacrest 2.0 needs to be careful throwing around the "system QB" label, because pretty soon that's all A&M will have.
Even if "Johnny Football" Manziel wins the Heisman, he'll just be a "system QB" under Sumlin.
Tannehill is the biggest reach in the draft yet, and its not even close. We'll get to see him help Sherman get fired for a second time, so actually this is quite amusing.
Tannehill went No. 8 overall.
I think most people would have laughed at that suggestion most of last year. But the reality is, Tannehill is talented and has been a full-time QB for two years.
Is he as talented as RGIII? No.
Can he be as good or at least a very good pro QB? Some people certainly think so, or he wouldn't have gone so high.

To be clear, I agree that Tannehill is talented and worthy of being drafted/groomed. If my team had spent a 3rd rounder on him, I'd have been happy.
I'm just mocking a guy who is saying that Tannehill is more ready for the NFL right now than RG3.
I agree with JKates here. This thread is not intended to denigrate Tannehill as a potential QB talent. It is intended to show that Hamm's aggy hyperbole has reached a new level of absurdity.
Who'd have even thought that was possible?!?
BC retweeted that last night and I had to laugh. Even Looch would recoil at the absurdity of this comment.
Hamm is the poster child for subjective journalism. The guy has no business being affiliated with this network. He'd fit in quite well over at texags though.
I read somewhere , and I agree with it,"Tannehill will get some NFL coach and GM fired before it's all over with."
I do think that Tannehill is a good enough battler that he might stick as a back up possession receiver.
Taking at #8 is pretty insane IMO.

Tannehill needs time to develop. I hope they don't expect him to be Jay Fiedler immediately.
Classic aggy response by Hamm for brains...
"numbers are skewed because of the number of dropped passes by A&M receivers. Something the analysts have brought up a lot."
1) Did Baylor WRs catch 100% of the balls thrown to them?
2) How many drops did aggy WRs have? Give me a number, Hamm for brains.
3) Which analysts brought this up? When? How often? How seriously?
Gruden talked about the dropped passes but he attributed that to poor placement by Ryan while in clutch situations. He then whent on to explain that he never win any big games at A&M. Kiper said the same thing.
You're right. RG3's numbers were skewed down due to drops. http://espn.go.com/blog/ncfnation/post/_/id/51204/baylor-offense-not-looking-like-usual-self
There was random numbers crunching segment on ESPN. I'll kook up the name of it when I get home. I think it was called By the Numbers or something along those lines.
