NFL Power Rankings: Ryan Tannehill ranks 1st among AFC South QBs

What you’re thinking is obvious. Some of you probably believe that the only reason Ryan Tannehill made this list at number one is that this is a pro-Titans platform, right?

Go ahead and stick your tongues out. The reasons that Ryan Tannehill tops this list are plentiful.

He’s talented. That’s number one. His peers and competition both respect him and see his value to his team. Remember the players vote on the NFL Network’s Top 100 Players every season. They voted Tannehill on the list but didn’t do the same for Carson Wentz, so they even believe that Tannehill is better.

There’s also what the stats say. Over the past two seasons, Tannehill has a starting record of 12-6. Carson Wentz is 3-10-1. Tannehill is also surrounded by a better supporting cast and is, arguably, in the best situation to ensure his success. Wentz can’t say that.

Most importantly, Tannehill, unlike Wentz, has won a playoff game, and if the Colts and Titans both made the playoffs, a very likely scenario, and you had to gamble on who might win there this season, who would you roll with?

Come on! You know good and doggone well that none of you are taking Carson Wentz. Ryan Tannehill tops this AFC South QB ranking. We’ll see how he does versus Wentz in Week 2.
