Then came the change of scenery, the one that seemed to offer a brand new start.

Still, who would have thought he'd elevate his game to such a degree after his 30th birthday, long after most NFL quarterbacks have either blossomed or been shoved into permanent back-up roles? Who would have thought all the honors and accomplishments were still to come?

We're talking about current CBS Sports analyst Rich Gannon, who'll be in Nashville on Sunday to provide commentary on the unbeaten Titans' game against Houston.

But if that background sounds familiar, it should.

Since then, Tannehill has guided the Titans to an 11-3 regular-season record as a starter, led the team within one win of the Super Bowl, posted a 115.3 quarterback rating and earned his first trip to the Pro Bowl.
