Dang. Do we really want "ludicrous"? I love Tanny's sense of humor.

lu·di·crous (ˈlo͞odəkrəs/) - adjective. So foolish, unreasonable, or out of place as to be amusing; ridiculous.

“I think we have a few different tempos we can play at,” Tannehill said. “We can go in the huddle. We can play on the ball at a normal speed. Or we can go at what we call ‘ludicrous speed,’ where we really press the tempo. I think that’s really going to help us more than it has in the past. Change those tempos up.”

While any quarterback who is conversant in Mel Brooks ("Spaceballs") shows great intelligence and obvious leadership skills, the football application is a valid one.

After coach Adam Gase’s third training camp, they’re working at a faster pace, which means Tannehill is in command of his surroundings. (Kicking a rookie out of the huddle for a missed assignment is another example.)

“There’s just a better feel. With Ryan, this is his third year in the offense,” Gase said. “He’s at mentally, a different level. He’s able to really help so many guys out. I think just a couple of the moving pieces we’ve had, those guys have done a good job picking it up. This, offensively, is not too far off from what Danny [Amendola] has already done.

Results on the "ludicrous speed" from preseason game 2.

3. We actually saw a no-huddle, up-tempo offense. Not sure if this was really “ludicous” speed, as Miami’s fastest tempo is apparently nicknamed. But Tannehill showed once again how comfortable he is when getting to the line of scrimmage quickly. Miami opened up the game snapping the ball quickly, and it worked. There were short passes to Kenyan Drake, Albert Wilson and Jakeem Grant. All three of those players are comfortable in the offense, too. We do think the Dolphins will actually try to use this more this season.

I thought he looked great. Poised and comfortable. No 3 and outs while he was in. Stupid penalties killed us.

If the OL continues to protect him as they have perhaps Gase will open up the vertical game once the season begins. Perhaps the OL is doing well because of the quick passes being thrown. Anyways, the pass protection is better than the past several years so far.

During the game it looks like he is just practicing.. I see what they mean here... No wonder the ball comes out so fast... And those ball fakes are much improved.

That's the word that came mind when I watched.

Effortless.

Yes, very smooth. You can tell that he and the receivers have put in an awful lot of work together on executing the offense.

They should work on scoring some touchdowns. That would be great.
