Tannehill: The more I watch Gase’s offense, the more excited I get

The Dolphins kick off their offseason program on Monday, which means head coach Adam Gase will get to formally work with the team for the first time since getting the job in January.

Like many other teams, the Dolphins have organized some workouts on their own ahead of the official start of the team sessions. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill and the team’s receivers don’t have playbooks yet, but they’ve been working on routes gleaned from Gase’s past stops.

“I’ve watched more Denver stuff so far,” Tannehill said, via the Miami Herald. “I’m sure I’ll get into a little more Chicago stuff. But I’ve watched more Denver stuff at this point, just seeing things they did well there with Peyton [Manning]. I’m excited about what I see. I think the more I watch, the more excited I am about the things they did and the things we’re going to be doing.”

Tannehill said the team is running “routes a little differently than we have in the past” and that they’ve improved as they’ve adjusted over the last few weeks. They’ll get to start putting that work to use in the full offense next week and the hope in Miami is that the payoff will be as exciting as the research.

  1. The more I get another offseason dose of optimism blown up my arse, the more I’m expecting this franchise to assemble yet another mediocre team come fall.

  2. This coach is living off a 1 Tebow hail mary and ‘roided up PM comeback tour. But as the owner said if he’s not a HoF coach in 3 years, he’ll be canned.

  3. It’s reassuring to hear tannehill is already deep into the studys of his head coach’s past work to get a jump on the upcoming season. Proud of you tanny keep up the good work!

  4. Gase needs to go back to 2012 and install Mike Sherman OC at the time type concepts and design. Sherman simplified things for the QB from a design standpoint. Everything happens so fast after the snap that if there is an ounce of hesitation, as a QB you are done.

  5. He’s on his third HC & third OC , so you wouldn’t expect him say anything less than “he’s excited” – I certainly don’t put all the blame on his shoulders for the offensive woes, as those problems have always been the play calling & lack of an offensive line to give him time to generate anything.

  6. I never understood why teams were so gaga over Adam Gase.

    McCoy ran the offense that figured out a way to use Tebow, and Manning ran his own system.

    Last year the Bears were 23rd in passing offense.

    And Tannehill is a level lower of a QB than Jay Cutler.

    Looks like yet another flop year for the Dolphins.

    Ross never said that. No need to try to resurrect a lie.

    Have a look at THill Jon Gruden’s QB Camp.

  8. there has been too many seasons of positive talk and feeling that the team will be a contender during the off season. thanks but no thanks. i’ll hold judgment and wait until the season starts. talk is cheap.
