Good paragraph here.

Quote:
Tannehill has wideout-level athleticism -- colleague Todd McShay clocked him at a 4.59-second 40-yard dash at his pro day -- and it's something he's starting to show in the pocket. He has missteps but shows pretty good instincts when tacklers are nearby. Young quarterbacks often struggle when the pocket collapses, because the instinct is to move backward, away from pressure. Not only can that bring rushing defensive ends back into play, it makes throws longer, and gives defenders added time in coverage. In watching the tape from his first five starts, Tannehill is showing an instinctive ability to climb the pocket and step through edge pressure. In last week's win at Cincinnati, he constantly frustrated the pass rush with his feet, moving laterally and through the pocket, looking occasionally like an Aaron Rodgers knock-off.

Hopefully Miami can keep the good vibe going with a solid win over the Rams to get to 500. I like their chances.

yup. I said when he was drafted that he was a taller version of Rodgers/Favre
Perfect west coast style QB. I think he's got one of the top 5 arms in the NFL. That ball comes out like a bullet. He doesn't give d-backs much time to break on his throws.
