Ryan Tannehill completed 15-of-25 passes for 204 yards and one touchdown in the Dolphins' Week 7 win over the Bills.
Tannehill was thoroughly bad for much of the day. At one point he had been averaging about 4.0 yards per attempt. Tannehill was able to boost his stat line with a late, fourth-quarter 66-yard touchdown strike to Kenny Stills to put the game away. Tannehill was still able to play turnover-free football for the second week in a row and heads into the bye before taking on the Jets in Week 9. Tannehill has settled in as nothing more than a mid-range QB2. Oct 23 - 5:09 PM

Ryan Tannehill completed 24-of-32 passes for 252 yards in the Dolphins' Week 6 win over the Steelers.

He didn't throw a touchdown or interception, though Tannehill had a short touchdown to TE Dominique Jones called back on a penalty. DeVante Parker also blatantly dropped one score. Tannehill played turnover-free ball and looked great handing the ball off to Jay Ajayi, who rumbled for 204 yards and two touchdowns. The Dolphins host the Bills in Week 7.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase is blaming Ryan Tannehill's poor play on bad pass protection.

"We have 18 drop-back passes, and (Tannheill) is hit or sacked on nine of them," Gase said of Sunday's disaster. Tannehill's pass protection has certainly been abysmal, but neither Tannehill nor his coach seem to be making the proper adjustments. Tannehill isn't being sent on the move, and when he's in the pocket, he has seemingly zero feel for the rush. Tannehill's supporting cast is letting him down, but he's been part of the problem.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Ryan Tannehill will be the starter "the rest of this season."

"He’s not coming out," Gase said. "You can ask me 100 times. He’s going to be in there the rest of this season." The crowd chanted for backup Matt Moore to get a shot in the 30-17 loss to the Titans Sunday, but Gase clearly has no intention to make a change. Tannehill has not been great, but he is not getting any help from his offensive line, defense, or playmakers. It is doubtful Moore would do any better, but a change might become necessary if the offensive struggles continue.

Ryan Tannehill completed 12-of-18 passes for 191 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions and was sacked six times for a loss of 42 yards Sunday in the Dolphins' Week 5 loss to the Titans.

Aside from two big plays—a 58-yard dumpoff to Damien Williams in the first half and a 50-yard dart to DeVante Parker in the third quarter—Tannehill’s Sunday was an unmitigated disaster. Tannehill looked like a deer in the headlights whenever the Titans brought pressure, which was often. His first interception wasn’t entirely his fault—Parker juggled a pass across the middle and essentially had the ball stolen from him by Jason McCourty. The second was a desperation heave late in the fourth quarter. Tannehill actually completed eight-of-10 passes after halftime but that didn’t stop the boo-birds from raining down on him. Even with Jarvis Landry and Parker at his disposal, Tannehill continues to accomplish nothing. We doubt it gets better for Tannehill next week against the Steelers.
Oct 9 - 5:21 PM

The Titans-Dolphins game set for Sunday at 1 PM ET is on track to play as scheduled.

Due to Hurricane Matthew ripping up the Atlantic Coast, there were concerns the game would have to be played elsewhere or pushed back. But South Florida miraculously appears to have dodged the worst part of the hurricane, paving way for the Dolphins and Titans to play a game Sunday afternoon.
Oct 7 - 10:06 AM

Sunday's Dolphins/Titans game in Miami could be moved or delayed because of Hurricane Matthew.

The Category 4 storm is bearing down on South Florida, but might not make a direct hit on Miami. The game could be delayed until Monday or Tuesday, or perhaps moved to a neutral site. Profootballtalk's Mike Florio reports the game is unlikely to be moved to Tennessee because of the competitive advantage it would create by giving the Titans a ninth home game.
Oct 6 - 3:15 PM

Ryan Tannehill completed 15-of-25 passes for 189 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Miami's 22-7, Week 4 loss to the Bengals.

He also lost a fumble. Tannehill tossed a 74-yard touchdown on the Dolphins' second play from scrimmage and then proceeded to be stunningly terrible. Tannehill was certainly disadvantaged by awful offensive line play, but played with the pocket awareness of a seventh-round rookie. It was as if Tannehill was completely incapable of feeling pressure. Coach Adam Gase did a bafflingly-poor job of rectifying the situation with rollouts, etc., but Tannehill simply has to be better five years into his career. He'll be flirting with a benching if he continues to play like this. Tannehill will be a last-gasp QB2 against the Titans in Week 5.
Sep 29 - 11:18 PM

Ryan Tannehill completed 25-of-39 passes for 319 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions in Miami's Week 3 overtime win over the Browns.

Tannehill didn't play to his stat line, throwing an interception on the opening drive and a pick-six later in the first half. He also lost a fumble at the end of the fourth quarter, but the Browns missed the game-winning field goal. Tannehill shredded a Joe Haden-less secondary when he had time, getting all of Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker, and Kenny Stills involved. Despite five touchdowns over his last two games, Tannehill is just a QB2 for Week 4 against the Bengals.
Sep 25 - 4:54 PM

Ryan Tannehill completed 32-of-45 passes for 389 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Miami's 31-24, Week 2 loss to the Patriots.

He added six carries for 35 additional yards. 20 minutes into the game, Tannehill was 1-for-4 for four yards. At one point in the second half, he was 20-for-21, with the incompletion being a throwaway. We got the full Tannehill experience, including piling up yardage after the opposing team eased off the throttle. The Pats entered halftime up 24-3, and understandably laid back a bit after the break. Odd game flow or not, Tannehill worked his connection with Jarvis Landry to perfection, and seemed on the same page with sophomore playmaker DeVante Parker. Tannehill will be a top-15 Week 3 play against the Browns' barely-there defense.
Sep 18 - 4:35 PM

Ryan Tannehill completed 16-of-29 passes for 186 yards in Miami's Week 1 loss to Seattle, adding five rushes for 17 yards and a touchdown.

Tannehill scored Miami's only touchdown on a QB draw late in fourth quarter. He was the victim of some drops, but struggled to move the offense with just 11 first downs. Tannehill won't be more than a QB2 for next week's matchup with the Patriots.
Sep 11 - 7:48 PM

In addition to finally being allowed to audible, Ryan Tannehill is now allowed to remove plays before the game.

New coach Adam Gase is taking the revolutionary approach of treating his quarterback like a man. "When I think about some of the things that he’s done really well, the fact that he’s open and that he makes suggestions and then if he doesn’t like something, he tells me," Gase said. "That kind of communication is critical because the last thing I want to do is put him in a position to where he doesn’t like what I’m calling but he doesn’t say anything." It's hard to blame Tannehill's topsy-turvy first four seasons all on his coaching, but it certainly didn't help. Tannehill has been set up for success plenty of times before, but never more so than in 2016.
Sep 8 - 3:05 PM

Ryan Tannehill said he feels "comfortable" in the new offense.

"I feel in charge of our offense now, in command of what we're doing out there," Tannehill added. "It's fun to get out there and get up to the line, get our guys in the right spots and keep the pressure on the defense." Famously not allowed to audible in the last offensive system in Miami, Tannehill is obviously relishing the opportunity to actually play quarterback. With plenty of weapons around him and more rushing upside than he displayed last year, Tannehill is a good candidate to jump back into the low-end QB1 ranks.

Ryan Tannehill completed 20-of-29 passes for 155 yards, zero touchdowns and an interception in Thursday's preseason game.

He added two carries for 22 yards. They're mediocre stats, but the Dolphins' coaching staff probably liked what it saw from its quarterback. Tannehill appeared more in command than he's been in years past, going so far as to — gasp — audible. His decision-making still wasn't the best — the pick was a tipped ball thrown directly at a lineman — but he showed his usual nice connection with Jarvis Landry in addition to Kenny Stills. Tannehill closes the book on the exhibition season 34-of-53 for 325 yards (6.13 YPA), two touchdowns and a pick. He's a mid-range QB2 under quarterback whisperer Adam Gase.
Aug 25 - 9:52 PM

Ryan Tannehill completed 12-of-20 passes for 162 yards and two touchdowns Friday night against the Cowboys.

He added two rushes for 16 yards including a nine-yard gain on an option keeper. Tannehill's best plays of the night both went to Kenny Stills. The first was a 55-yard bomb on the move in the first quarter, and the second was a beautiful touch pass for a three-yard score near the end of the first half. He had another sure touchdown dropped by Jordan Cameron. Aside from consistently throwing behind his receivers on out breaking routes, it was an overall solid performance. Just a season removed from a QB8 finish, Tannehill is as good a late-round quarterback flier as any.
