Post Ryan Tannehill a precision bomber
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.”


Quote:
“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.”

Maybe someone can work that into a nickname for him. Norden for short or is that too historical? Ryan "Smart Bomb" Tannehill? Ok this is not working for me.

In contrast to Henne who couldn't hit the Titanic 30 yards down the field.

Even a casual observer can tell this is hands down the best passer the Dolphins have had since Marino. The talent is there, but with Tannehill the test will be consistency. If the kid can continue to improve and become more and more consistent, then we've got ourselves a franchise quarterback.

He has the work ethic to go with that talent, skill set + work ethic is the perfect combinaison. He's the real deal.

Uh, maybe a bad idea since if I remember right scuds are notoriously inaccurate.

Interesting. I was just asking my friends last Sunday "Why doesn't Tomahawk Tanny throws more deep passes in this offense?". Ok, so I didn't call him that but you guys inspired me. & since the cruise missile is one of the most accurate the US has . . . Anyways the response was basically 2 fold. We need the speed receiver *cough Gates*. & the other attitude was Dolphin fans are so relieved of waiting & hoping that we hard pressed to ask for more of a QB haha Sad but true, I thought.

Y'all remember that Monday night where Henne cocked back, time slowed down for the release, & the ball sailed right into Ginn's hands, 2 yards in past Revis? . . . Chills!

Juck the Fets. Lets go
