    Ryan Tannehill outwardly wasn't concerned about the Miami Dolphinspotentially selecting a quarterback with their first-round pick of the 2018 NFL Draft, coach Adam Gase said on Wednesday.

    While the Dolphins instead named defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick with the 11th overall pick, Gase told PFT Live that Tannehill wasn't sweating the decision. His attitude, Gase said, is focused only on things he can control.

    "Expect a guy that's extremely hungry to get back on the field and lead this team," Gase said of Tannehill. "I think there's an appreciation for him after him not being here last year and guys are excited for him to get this thing going."

    What? I thought the great Joe Philbin said that Ryan Tannehill was a locker-room cancer?

    Why would he sweat it, he knew like many of us did, that the Phins weren't selecting a QB.

    He definitely shouldn't have been worried as it's always been his job to lose. Gase's comments does suggest imo that drafting a Qb was not totally out of the question.

    That's why Philbin got kicked to the curb by the Dolphins after his complete failure as a Head Coach and then kicked to the curb by the Colts after his O-Line nearly got Andrew Luck killed. Now he has been relegated back to the spot that he is best qualified for, getting his buddy McCarthy's coffee and picking up gum wrappers.

    The cancer may have been Grimes. Tannehill may have been a polarizing player at the time though. It seemed like there may have been some players who believed in him at the time and some who didn't. Joe just didn't know how to handle that.

    Locker Room cancer is a phrase that gets thrown around too much.

    Locker Room cancer is the type of thing that should be reserved for people like Brandon Marshall.

    All the people here saying we were never going to draft a QB are wrong imo. I believe that if the right QB has been there for them to take, they'd have pull the trigger. However, they were not going to go crazy moving up for one. I believe that they felt Minkah was a better bet at FS than the QB's they could have traded up for.

    Probably not. Not all of us are lucky to have friends that are NFL Head Coaches.

    the only QB they would have drafted seemed to be Baker who went #1.

    they didn't work out Darnold & Rosen would have been a Dolphin if they wanted him too with the Bears calling Miami & Miami declined.

    Pretty funny statement by Gase. Translation: "After dealing with Cutler last season...the locker room is jacked to get Tannehill back."

    This past injury could actually help Tannehill in regards to his leadership/role on the team. Teammates will certainly be more appreciative of what he can bring to the table after they got a taste of what a season is like without him...with poor QB help. There will certainly be cautious optimism since he is coming back from a terrible injury, but you have to think the guys are eager to have him slinging the rock again.

    That was the biggest bunch of crap I had ever heard. It's hard to believe Philbin would have even said that. There is absolutely Nothing at all from what we've seen and heard about Ryan that would make us believe that.

    Lol sure he wasn't, remember when he was bitching because he was getting picked off by practice squad players....also he's not dumb, he knows he will be cut if he doesn't produce soon.

    He should not be worried at all. He's not that relevant anyway.

    The way I see it is a quarterback of his caliber could easily get another chance elsewhere as long he stays healthy. He might never be an upper tier guy, but he's good enough to make QB needy teams pay for his services whether that be as a stop gap (e.g. Cardinals signing Bradford, then drafting Rosen), or potentially to become a longer term starter (e.g. Broncos and Keenum, Redskins and Smith).

    It's like Joe Flacco. The Ravens drafted his successor and he knows he's on borrowed time. All he has to do is stay healthy and productive and when the time comes he'll get offers for another opportunity to start in this league. Alex Smith is another example. The Chiefs drafted Mahomes and Smith was on borrowed time, he played well and the Redskins went in for him.

    So there really is nothing for Tannehill to worry about because he's good enough to start in this league whether it be for us or someone else.

    From Dante Stallworth, but who knows maybe he was drinking and driving while posting this. The one instance was the week of the London game when some practice squad players picked him off during a WALK-THRU when everyone was supposed to be going half *** (we used to call them Thursday Warriors back in High school, the guys that wanted to go all out on the walk thrus in just helmets or shells the day before the game). supposedly told a player to enjoy his practice squad paycheck. but im sure like Vaark said, it went from Brent, to Miko, to Omar

    “To be fair, no one goes full speed on walkthroughs,” Stallworth tweeted. “That’s why they’re called *drumroll* — ‘walkthroughs.’

    “Also, no defensive players should be interrupting the offense in any way, shape or form the day before a game — and vice versa.

    “That’s on the coaches, to be honest. The head coach and both coordinators to be exact.

    “Guys joke on each other all the time. Things people “outside” would probably call cruel but *if reports are true Tannehill crossed the line. (this line actually makes me think of bullygate and jmarts soft ***)

    “I understand his frustration, especially in a walkthrough the day before a game, the last look you get before kickoff, but that’s too much.

    “I’ve never heard a teammate say that to another, not even in a joking manner. I really hope he didn’t say that.

    “Because if it happened on more than one occasion, it’s safe to say that he was not joking. …

    “But at the end of the day, this speaks volumes to the disfunction of the Miami Dolphins. I feel bad for Dol-fans. They deserve a winner.”
