|Ryan Tannehill knows he has to make a 'big jump' |
|by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(4/10/14) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill realizes that 2014 has to be the year he improves. Speaking with ESPN during a photo shoot in Los Angeles, Tannehill is confident he'll be a better football player.
"I have to make a big jump, I'm aware of that," Tannehill said. "I'm putting in the work, putting in the time to get myself physically ready, mentally ready and learn this new offense that we're going with this year. So there is still work to be done. But I look for a big jump in myself, both in production and wins. That's what we ultimately play for is wins. So, I'm excited to see what this team does."
The Dolphins not only added left tackle Branden Albert and left guard Shelley Smith to bolster an offensive line dashed by injuries and controversies last year, but they made a switch at offensive coordinator, going with ex-Eagles quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor.
|Philbin has plan to help Ryan Tannehill improve |
|by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(3/25/14) Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said Tuesday at the NFL owners meetings he has three things he wants to see from quarterback Ryan Tannehill in his third season in 2014.
Philbin wants Tannehill to play faster, be more accurate and limit turnovers.
"Just continued development," Philbin said. "We want to see the play speed continue to get better. We think we saw the development from Year 1 to Year 2. We want to see the accuracy continue to get better. There was some progress in his completion percentage. And we want to see the interceptions go down."
Philbin said the addition of offensive coordinator Bill Lazor should help Tannehill improve based on Lazor's background, which includes working with Nick Foles in Philadelphia in 2013.
"He told me he would be at least the third-highest quarterback rating in history like Nick Foles," Philbin said of Lazor working with Tannehill. "That’s a joke. Anyway, Bill has a lot of experience working with quarterbacks. ... He’s been around a lot of different ways to do it. He’s played quarterback himself. He’s worked with a lot of different guys. What I’m interested in with Bill is increased play speed, increased accuracy and cut down on the turnovers."
|Ryan Tannehill: Learning new offense 'a big task' |

(2/24/14) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill said he spoke to new coordinator Bill Lazor and found out the offense "definitely will be different," according to the Miami Herald. "It’s a completely different system. Bill runs a numbers system. Coach [Mike] Sherman was a West Coast-style system.
"Everything is going to have a different name," Tannehill added. "It’s going to be re-programmed in my brain to work in a different way. It’s a big task.”
Tannehill said he's excited to work with Lazor. “He’s a fun guy to work with. Just his personality coming in seems like it’s going to be a lot of fun," the quarterback said. "I’m looking forward to when we can get into learning the offense. I’m just waiting on that date. ... I’m really looking forward to taking a big step this year.”
|La Canfora: Dolphins could make a quarterback change eventually |
|by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(2/7/14) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill is expected to get more pressure from coach Joe Philbin this summer to improve his game -- or else. CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora writes that Miami head coach Joe Philbin professed his belief in backup Matt Moore to several general manager candidates, suggesting that he could put Moore in the lineup if Tannehill doesn't improve.
"He definitely wants to push Tannehill more," a source who spoke with Philbin said, "and if he doesn't see improvement he said he might go to Moore at some point. He definitely has a lot of faith in Moore, and they're paying him a lot of money."
Indeed, Moore is due $4 million in 2014 and counts for $5.5 million against the cap. Tannehill is not due for a new contract until 2016.
|Ryan Tannehill flops in must-win closer |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(12/29/13) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill turned in his second subpar performance in a row to finish the season Sunday, in a 20-7 loss to the Jets in Week 17. The loss ended Miami's playoff chances.
Tannehill completed just 20 of 39 passes for 204 yards, narrowly avoiding a second straight game with a sub-50.0 percent completion percentage. He threw one touchdown, a 5-yarder to Mike Wallace in the second quarter, but followed it up with a trio of costly interceptions in the second half.
Despite the disappointing finish, Tannehill still made strides in his second season in the league. He finishes with 3,913 yards with 24 touchdowns and 17 interceptions, while completing 60.5 percent of his passes.
|Ryan Tannehill has the chance to surprise Fantasy owners this season in his second year in the NFL. He got a revamped receiving corps with the additions of Mike Wallace, Brandon Gibson and Dustin Keller while also keeping Brian Hartline. He will miss Davone Bess and Reggie Bush, but the Dolphins did a lot to improve Tannehill's targets. He showed some promise as a rookie in 2012, which is something to build on. He had four games with at least 20 Fantasy points, but he had six games with eight points or less. He finished his rookie year with 3,294 passing yards, 12 touchdowns and 13 interceptions and 48 carries for 214 yards and two touchdowns with eight fumbles. The Dolphins want to use Tannehill in the read option more this year, which should showcase his running ability. Tannehill should be considered a low-end No. 2 Fantasy quarterback to open the season, but he's someone to keep your eye on. He might not get drafted in the majority of leagues, but he could turn into a quality playmaker as the season progresses. (Updated 5/29/13) |
