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 t Continue reading
Ahhhh, spring is in the air. While my fellow Floridians would argue it feels more like summer (because it does), one very important thing has to happen for Dolfans before we can mentally concede that summer is truly approaching: the NFL Draft.
Every die hard NFL fan has Thursday April 25th, 2013 circled on their calendar, and will be hitting their TV/computer/tablet/smart phone/all of the above no later than 8 PM sharp. The NFL Draft brings out Armchair GMs in droves, gleefully postulating “Mock Drafts” by the dozens.
Our very own FinNation.com Message Board forum has an annual contest that is scored and open to all. The predictions are not only entertaining, but informative and occasionally clairvoyant. Unlike some devout fans, I don’t have the time to truly research the droves of draftees. So rather than hobble together an unworthy mock draft, I’ll content myself with being a mere Armchair QB, apply elbow grease to the genie bottle, and offer up three general wishes for the upcoming draft that is still one oh-so-long week away.

Colts QB Andrew Luck set a NFL rookie passing record with 433 yards passing, and the Colts held on to beat the Dolphins 23-20. Luck threw 30 of 48 passes for 433 yards with two TDs, and the Miami defense had no answers.
To make matters worse, the Colts were 13 of 19 on 3rd down conversion, a huge surprise against a defense that was the best in the NFL on stopping 3rd down conversion. Of those 13 conversions, 10 of them were for 5 yards or greater by my count.
Tannehill had solid stats, going 22-of-38 passing for 290 yards and a TD. That’s 90.9 QB rating. But the Colts were able to apply very effective pressure on Tannehill, especially in the second half. That was enough to knock Tannehill out of sync. On the final two drives, Tannehill seemed flustered and overthrew several receivers.
The defense did a poor job of applying pressure to Luck, and even worse job defending the pass.

According to multiple sources, including the Miami Dolphins official site, QB Ryan Tannehill will be starting today against the Colts.
In other news, DT Tony McDaniel will be out of the game with an injury. QB Pat Devlin, CB Richard Marshall, DB Anderson Russell, LB Josh Kaddu, OT Will Yeatman and TE Michael Egnew on the inactive list. Nolan Carroll will get his fourth consecutive start at cornerback in place of the injured Richard Marshall.
The Colts will be without CB Vontae Davis and TE Coby Fleener. WR Nathan Palmer, CB Marshay Green, DE Clifton Geathers, DE Lawrence Guy, and OT Tony Hillis will be on the inactives list.

I know it’s early to start talking about this, since there was really no rivalry between Andrew Luck and Ryan Tannehill in college, but something inside me (perhaps an intestinal bug or too much Halloween candy) makes me think that Sunday’s game between the Colts and Dolphins is the beginning of a new era of a good old-fashioned AFC rivalry of QBs.
Certainly, it will be a cerebral rivalry, as neither of these men is particularly fiery in their demeanor, but that’s what will add to the mystique. Two young field generals take their armies off to war: one the anointed one, the exquisite surgeon who can bring his side to the promised land; the other an inexperienced, yet intelligent, leader who was thrust into his position earlier than many thought wise, and who has shown immeasurable promise in each battle. Both teams seem to be on the rise with good coaching and a philosophy to develop into a perennial winner, or dare I say, achampion.
