The Dolphins finally landed in London, and did their best to put out the fire they started back in Miami.
Quarterback Ryan Tannehill and coach Joe Philbin addressed the media Friday, and both tried to quell any notion that anything was amiss after this week’s ridiculousness over who the starting quarterback actually was.
“We’ve talked. We’re on the same page. Just getting ready for the game,” Tannehill said, via Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post.
It was apparently a far less emotional press conference than Wednesday, when Tannehill announced that he was the starter, even though Philbin wouldn’t. Tannehill was clearly bothered by the strategy
Philbin, acknowledging the hash he made this week said that in the coming weeks, the depth chart the team releases early in the week will indicate who’s starting, unless he changes his mind.
“That’s one way of answering the question,” he said.
Of course, another ways is not leaving your starting quarterback hanging out to dry, and then having to apologize to the players for creating your own distraction.
