  • Expectations of Tannehill tonight.

    1. Recognize the pressure, sense the soft spots in the rush and move accordingly as the pocket changes shape. Hint. They are going to loop the RDE inside. See it. 2. Scan the field. Tunnelvision is a horrible nickname. 3. Don't be a frigging quitter. Don't accept four yard passes when you have more time to let plays develop. A completed pass short of the sticks on 3rd down is quitting. Not resetting your feet after moving from pressure and throwing a lousy pass just so you can keep your jersey clean is quitting. Forcing a pass into traffic instead of scrambling for positive yards is quitting. 4. Anticipate, see the open window and throw a softer pass sooner. 5. Be demonstrative about your expectations, with your Receivers and with your O Line. Pretty simple.

    1 - Start fast, take control of the offensive unit
    2 - Control the tempo on the drives
    3 - Trust your receivers
    4 - Run if the defense turns it's back and don't respect your ability to do so. Make them think about it.
    5 - Audible if you see a weakness/matchup to exploit
    6 - Find some rhythm
    7 - Don't get hurt

      I expect him to score 1 touchdown on his 2/3/4 possessions.0
      The deeper the roots, the higher the reach.

        Would love to see a long scoring drive by RT & our starting O to start the game...but hell, these days i'm just hoping not to see every possession end in a 3 & out!!!

          Expectations From Tannehill - I expect him to play the same way he has been playing. He hasn't changed. He won't turn his head and scan the field so I don't have any expectations that he will suddenly change and start doing that, even when he has time to pass. My expectations from him to to let me down and play the same way he's been playing the past 5 years. He will look for the shortest "open" receiver. He will drop back to pass and his head will never move. He will take the snap while looking towards the left-hand side of the field and he will never turn his head towards the middle of the field or the right to try and keep the safeties honest. He will keep staring in the direction that he plans on throwing the entire play, letting every DB know where he's going with the ball so they can pounce on the receiver and keep them from getting extra yardage. My expectation for Tannehill is for him to be Tannehill, a utter and complete letdown. Hopefully he will surprise me but I am not "expecting" that to happen. I just hope Doughty gets some playing time with the Ones, along with Pead.

            RT wasn't great tonight but besides him and Stills, everyone else sucked on BOTH sides of the ball.
            While it takes two to have an argument, it only takes one to walk away.

              Tanny should have 3 TDs. He is still a ways from a Pro Bowler but he can become an efficient QB.

                I thought Tannehill actually looked decent tonight. He made some bad throws, really bad throws, but he did things that I have been waiting for him to do for a while now. There were way too many dropped balls by many of his receivers, the offensive line couldn't create holes for the running backs and the defense just stunk up the joint.

                  I agree. Prescott looked like he was in his 5th year, if not his 10th year. It's hard to believe he is only playing in his second NFL game. He is a NATURAL quarterback, which is what the Dolphins need to be a playoff team.

                    I can't expect Tannehill to progress if we're obviously still working out of Lazor's playbook. Why don't we just find an Olympic volleyball player to just spike the snap in the direction of a Receiver each play. Think I heard Atlanta say they would deploy a 4-5 defense against us next week. It will be the first time a team uses no Safeties in a game.

                      You saying the Dolphins could be beaten with only 9 on defense against their offense?
                      OK, just wanted to be sure.

                      BTW, kelbail...it isn't that you're naturally brilliant. (thought you very may well be) Mainly I post to you so I can grab another look at your Avatar. haha
                      Kidding, my man. I'm just so depressed right now. I'm the oldest member here, and yet the glory days still seem like yesterday...well, maybe last week. Anyhow, I can't remember when I have seen so many fat asses with numbers on their backs who appear not to give a damn.
                      My Canes are my only salvation. Yes, the Dolphins could squeak out a win against whomever next week, but it will only TEMPORARILY obfuscate the fact that there are a dozen or more players on this team, Suh included that are playing for a paycheck.

                      Is it the area, Miami and vicinity that creates this sort of lazy looking style of play. Everything other than the little receiver screen to the left deploys at a sickeningly slow pace, even the running plays. OY.
