Ryan Tannehill “trying to get to the point where he feels good throwing”

AP

Word late last week was that Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill would remain out of action through the team’s Week 11 bye due to the capsule injury to his right shoulder that has kept him out of the last four games.

The team hasn’t made any announcement, but head coach Adam Gase didn’t say much on Monday that leads one to believe that Brock Osweiler will be back on the bench against the Packers. Tannehill has resulmed throwing, but Gase said “everything is inconsistent” and termed the process as a “weird” one because Tannehill alternates between good and bad throws.

“We’re going to see if he will throw the next two days or wait through the bye,” Gase said, via the Miami Herald. “We’re trying to get to the point where he feels good throwing and we will go from there. It will be interesting to see what happens the next two days and when we make a decision, whatever it is, what the bye week does for us.”

Osweiler and the offense didn’t do much in Sunday’s 13-6 win, but Gase said he hasn’t given thought to making a move to David Fales should Tannehill remain out.

  1. At what point are they going to finally realize that 30-year-old Ryan Tannehill isn’t going to suddenly become a franchise QB? How many more years? Their dedication to him is admirable I guess, but it’s part of the reason why the Patriots never have any competition in the AFC East.

  2. When Tannehill was completely healthy from 2012 thru late 2016 he was still below average at best.
    There is basically NO difference when he does not play, you just get another below average QB whether its Moore, Cutler, Fales or Osweiler.

    I will say this for Osweiler, he does have better pocket awareness and won’t turnover the ball as often as Turnoverhill. Either way we’re doomed!

    But hey lets give Ryan another 5 years or longer to see if he’s the real deal at QB, right apologist? lol

  3. What I fear most as a Dolphin’s fan is that the brain trust will pick up the option on Tannehill and keep giving this 2nd string quarterback franchise QB money at the end of this season.

  4. No Tannehill defender here, but we don’t expect him “to save the team”. However, he is 12-7 under Gase with a 73% completion rate. This is not terrible. The problem is overall he is 40-42. We are stuck at mediocrity with Gase and him. I hope he can play well if and when he comes back for Trade value purposes only! As much as it saddens me it is time to clean house (again). With a really strong AFC West, the Wildcard is going to be Chargers and ?? 10-6 will be needed and that is not happening here. So once again a 7, 8 or even 9 finish is a waste and a further drop in the Draft and more security for the idiotic play-calling Coach Gase!! A never ending circle of frustration for Miami Fans.

  5. Irritating an injury one week out from the break seems unwise to me. If your looking to bring him back it should start with the Colts game. As bad as Osweiler played Sunday I don’t see him going to the podium to tell the reporters how the job is his…. Although I’d like to see that I could use a good laugh.

    Do you seriously believe there’s a team out there that would trade for Tannehill?

    Thanks, I’ve been asking this same question since 2014, sadly, many of my fellow Dolphin fans see the second coming of Dan Marino in Turnoverhill for whatever insane reason, afterall he’s 9-3 in his last 12 starts they state!

    What they conveniently avoid telling you is that he’s 40-42 overall, with no accuracy, pocket awareness or leadership skills.

    Yes, yes I do and so does the recent articles I just read. He is a “decent” Starting QB (ranks from 16 to 24 annually)and certainly a GREAT Backup. He could easily fetch a mid rounder. The Dolphins owe him nothing after this year, so he would negotiate his salary with the future team that certainly won’t give him the $24M he would get in Miami. I do see your point if this is about injury. He was an ironman until 2016. He has value… but only if he proves to be healthy. The Fins will get clobbered by the Packers regardless of who the QB is…so rest Tannehill another 3 weeks only makes sense and Start him after the Bye.

  9. He’s had 7 years of ‘development” and the fact that he’s 30 – he’s done as a starter!

    Tannehill STILL does not posses the 3 most important skills needed to succeed at QB :
    1) intelligence
    2) vision ( lack of properly reading coverage’s )
    3) pocket awareness

    Notice they all are BASIC fundamentals that WINNING QB’s posses –
    I’m not discounting his competitiveness, arm strength or his mobility
    but these are tools that are no good if unable to to have 3 of the above !

  10. I agree that Thill should have the next 3 weeks to heal his injury. This team has nothing to gain having him go against Green bay. Bill

  11. Just go look at Tannehills numbers under Gase as a coach people. They are pretty good. So all you haters can keep on whining and crying about starting over with another QB for another 4 years. Its not happening. This team will build a good team around him. And if they can get luckier with all the injuries the last 3 years…they will build a winner. This team has been changing QB’s and coaches for 20 years.They finally found good ones. Its time to stop the madness. Stay the course.

  12. Don’t let the facts get in the way of your opinion. RT is 10-3 in his last 13 Starts AND through the first 6 years of Brady, Brees and Tannehills careers he has a better QBR then Brees and is within 2 points of Bradys QBR. BUT hey I guess there is no hope right. They should cut him today.

    This guy is a broken record
    I Don’t see how 27 tds 12 ints is BELOW AVERAGE let alone deserve a the moniker Turnoverhill you created,You just have a hard on for this guy and i don’t know why.. Dude is comparable to Alex Smith.. He aint a world beater but if you get him some good pieces he can get you to the playoffs and maybe further.

    No Dolphin fan in the world is saying stick with him by himself, If you draft a first round QB Tannehill is a good QB to buy time with ala Alex Smith and Patrick Mahomes.. Its like you forget the years we had Cleo Lemon,Henne,Beck.. Things could be much worse at QB (Bortles,Prescott,Winston to name a few)

  14. Turnoverhill has never been the answer guys, he’s Chad Henne 2.0 at best, he can’t even get on the field any longer, he won’t be back in 2019, thank goodness!

    I realize how desperate we are for a QB but Turnoverhill has never been the answer.

    Being a fan is one thing, being delusional is another!

    – AMEN!!
    That guy posts 10 posts a day bashing THill. While THill isn’t a top 10 QB, he isn’t the reason we are losing. Everyone forgets he went 10-1 in an 11 game stretch.

  16. Let me fix that for you..

    When Tannehill was completely healthy from 2012 thru late 2016 and had the worst offensive line for those 5 years, which caused him to pee blood after one game he was still below average at best.

  17. Who is Ryan Tannehill. A question us Dolphin fans have been asking for some time. Good enough and not up to it enough to spit the fan base. But the coach who’s job is pretty much dependent on his QB is totally with him. And to be fair he knows more than we do. In reality we could have learned everything about or QB if he hadn’t got hurt vrs the Bengals and probably a good deal more before he got his knee banged vrs the Cardinals. So we are in a state of flux. There are some big decisions for Mr Ross at the end of this season or maybe sooner.
