So when asked how he thinks Tannehill matches up with fellow rookie quarterbacks Robert Griffin III and Andrew Luck, Pouncey easily proclaims that Tannehill is the best of the bunch.
“I think he’s the best rookie quarterback in the NFL right now,” Pouncey said of Tannehill, taken by Miami with the No. 8 pick in last April’s NFL draft. “Without his success that he’s having right now, we wouldn’t be the 3-3 Dolphins that we are.”
“I think he’s better than RG3,” Pouncey said of Tannehill. “Their games are different. RGIII can throw, but he can also run. Tannehill’s a smart quarterback.
Now comparing Tannehill to other rookie quarterbacks is one thing. But Pouncey takes it a step further and says Tannehill will end up being like Tom Brady.
I think he’s going to be one of those elite guys like Tom Brady when it comes said and done. Just his composure. His leadership in the huddle right now is just phenomenal. … I do see Tom, and the way he coordinates and runs his offense is the same as Tannehill does.”
We understand that’s your quarterback and all, but please settle down, Mike.
