Schefter said on The Sid Rosenberg Show (640-AM) on Monday that rookie Ryan Tannehill may not be the answer after all.
"I'm not as convinced [they have their QB] as I was six weeks ago," said Schefter. "Week after week Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson continue to make plays and continue to win games. You walk away from their games and say, 'Those guys are really good.' Have we done that with Ryan Tannehill?

"I'm not saying Ryan Tannehill is not going to turn out to be a great quarterback," said Schefter. "He may, but I don't know right now. All I'm saying is I haven't walked away from a Miami Dolphins game in a good month, saying, 'That quarterback was really impressive.'
"Let's look at the larger body of work. The 49ers game, he was not overly impressive. The Patriots game, not overly impressive. Against the Bills, not impressive. Before that Tennessee . . . terrible. He was OK against the Colts. They've lost five of their last six games."
Schefter added that Tannehill has shown flashes of solidifying the team's quarterback position for the first time in years.
"I've spoken with enthusiasm earlier this season that the Dolphins have found their quarterback," he said. "I'm not as convinced of that now."
