It's great to see that the deep ball is back in Miami.

Before most every practice, Ryan Tannehill does his best Mike Miller impersonation (minus the balky back, of course).
Tannehill spends five minutes lofting footballs into a small, netted target from a considerable distance, like Miller unleashing a deep three. On Wednesday, Tannehill couldn’t seem to miss, dropping most every toss into the intended target.
On Sundays, he has been just as effective.
Through the first six games of his young career, Tannehill is at his best when chucking downfield. On throws of 20 yards or longer, Tannehill has completed 11 of 19 passes for 395 yards, two touchdowns and, most importantly, no interceptions. His quarterback rating at that distance — a sparkling 137.5.
“It’s been unusual for a rookie or any about else to have that kind of accuracy on the deep ball,” Jets coach Rex Ryan marveled Wednesday. “He takes shots and hangs in there and makes accurate throws down the field. It’s been impressive.”
“Accurate; that’s the best word I can describe,” receiver Marlon Moore said. “If we can get down there and get in any type of position for him to make the throw and make the play, it’s just an accurate deep ball.”
