This is the make or break year for QB Ryan Tannehill?
–John, Pembroke Pines

To a certain extent, I think so. For me, I typically give a QB 25-30 starts to accurately judge him. (The Dolphin coaches might give him more.) Does he have what it takes? Are the mistakes he makes correctable? Is he learning the offensive schemes quick enough?

Recently, Tannehill talked about getting his feet set to improve his accuracy. (Something that is correctable.)

Overall, I know that I liked what I saw from Tannehill last season. Three times last season Tannehill brought the team from behind and put them in a position to win. Unfortunately, Dan Carpenter missed game winning field goals against the Cards and Jets. But that still says something about Tannehill’s moxie.

With a lot more talent around him, Tannehill needs to have success, and show that he is the long term answer this season.

Are the chances pretty good that Caleb Sturgis beats out Dan Carpenter (for the kicker position)? –Phishfan12

Carpenter is due over $2 million in salary this year. (Sturgis won’t cost even half that.) So unless Sturgis completely blows it, or joins a “leadership counsel”, I think he is in the driver’s seat for that spot.

So should we prepare for the Dolphins leaving Miami? –Fred, Connecticut

No….for more than one reason. First, where would the team move? L.A.? They don’t have a new stadium.

Secondly, Mr. Ross not only owns the Dolphins, he owns Joe Robbie stadium (it will always be Joe Robbie to me….) If he moves the team, what does he do with the stadium?

Ross won’t move the team. It is not economically feasible at this point.

But if L.A. builds a state of the art stadium, or when Ross sells the team, maybe it might happen. (I still doubt it.) But for the immediate future, the Dolphins are not leaving south Florida.
