Where are the Ryan Tannehill contract haters?

Remember this offseason when the Titans signed Ryan Tannehill and all of the national media people talked about how ridiculous the contract was? I was looking for those people this morning, but I can’t seem to find any of them. Where did they all go?

Check out these numbers:

If the last few years has taught us anything, it is that you should never define a player by what he did in his time with Adam Gase. Tannehill and Arthur Smith have found a magic here that we haven’t seen since the days of Steve McNair and Mike Heimerdinger.

Jonathan Hutton was just reading off some numbers on the Midday 180 between Tannehill and Patrick Mahomes. Tannehill has been better. You won’t hear those talking heads that criticized in the spring mention that.

[UPDATE] - Here are the actual numbers:

Oh, and Derrick Henry is only averaging 3.7 yards per carry so far on the year. So you can’t attribute all of Tannehill’s success to Henry’s productivity.
