nice in non contact otas but damn I hope "throw it deep to amendola" isn't seriously going to be in the playbook every week
Thankfully it seems Osweiler wont be around much longer
I doubt it will, but I am all for getting Ryan and him timed up- long short intermittent etc. as Armando said earlier in ota’s Ryan was completing alot of short passes to him
I'm starting to feel better about the backup QB position.
Have not heard Wilson's name much. Hope he gets into the mix as well.
I still think that if this O is going to be better than average then Parker has to finally step up and be the guy
Very ealry but remember Gases words to Jay G before Ryan got re injured- ‘ryan is set up for a monster year’.
One can hope
No question- he is the size WR
Going to need a whole lot of this.
If it works you damn well better keep doing it.
Jay g? Wasn't it darlington who said that?
It's really hard to put much stock into anything that goes on in these glorified photo shoots, but it sounds like Tannehill's picking up right where he left off on those deep passes. That's great.
I know how the narrative on him early in his career was that he was a bad deep ball thrower, but the truth is that he is anything but that. Our offense sorely missed him last season in that capacity more than any, I think.
He was a league leader is passes traveling over 20 yards in the air in 2016 before he went down!
Crazy looking back how many favors the overpaid Mike Wallace did not do for tannehill lol
Glad to see another good offense day, but for some reason I get the feeling the D called the dogs off a bit. Maybe not going 100% in attempt to avoid a needless injury on the final day of OTA's.
We're off topic, but I 100% still believe Mike Wallace legit needs LASIK.
It's true that Tannehill took criticism to heart and improved his downfield passing accuracy, but Wallace has also struggled in that area in Minnesota and now Baltimore. He's used a lot on short and intermediate routes there, rather than long bombs. He struggles to adjust to the football in flight and I absolutely think it's a vision-related issue.
On the subject of our current receivers, I like Albert Wilson a lot, but it sounds so far like he might not be getting a ton of looks until Danny Amendola's seemingly inevitable injury four games into the season. Amendola's my favorite right now to lead the team in receptions and yards if he plays 16 games. I think that will wind up being the best value free agent contract in the NFL if he keeps himself upright.
DeVante Parker is interesting because we heard the same thing last season after the off-season and the first few days of training camp. Tannehill and Parker seemed to be developing great chemistry and people around the team were like "Oh man, DeVante's finally about to explode!" and then, well, the rest is history. I want to believe.
Sounds like they wanted to see the QB's and WR's end OTA's with some confidence heading into camp
Sorry for the lack of clarity - Jay Glazer when he was here to visit with Gase.
I hope this works. loved the first reply to RT threw deep pass to DP. sorry if it doesn't work or whatnot, never posted a tweet before
Agreed. Shorts or not, timing is still timing. Hitting a receiver in stride is still a skill.
Looks like Tannehill is converting Phindog!!!!
look, im no expert, but from beginning i could see Walkace was poison and THill had zero confidence in throwing to him. Never knew if he was going to run full speed route or not, or fight fir ball ir not, or use two hands or not.
RT was NOT a firceful dynamic leader that could call him out- Walkace was the pricey accomplished (yeah...) veteran.
That the FO couldnt see this and re-signed Wallace was the single most shocking and telling move ive seen of the then mgmt since following Fins in 2012.
I said Wallace was a cancer- and he was. or maybe just gutless and lazy.
I find it Interesting an exciting, that as the years go by RT is being appreciated more in retrospect and various pkayers and coaches are being exposed for what they were.
RT survives and improves in spite of the way he and those around him have been handled. I think Gase is the right guy at right time fir this franchise- stay the course!
Welcome aboard Danny,.
The question we have to ask about David Fales is whether he's legitimately good enough to be the primary backup and to perform well should Tannehill get hurt, or whether he's being manufactured a bit by the presence of Jakeem Grant.
Look most of the good work Fales did in preseason and regular season, it was highly influenced by Jakeem Grant making plays. And now this spring, as David Fales is dusting Brock Osweiler in the "competition" for the backup job, Adam Gase notes that Fales and Grant have hooked up on FIVE deep touchdown bombs this spring...and that quite frankly when they get into training camp he wants to make sure Tannehill gets the chance to work with Jakeem and Albert Wilson.
Recall that the only good game Brandon Doughty basically ever had was that Giants preseason game when Jakeem Grant went off for him.
Maybe it doesn't matter, so long as Jakeem Grant is present when/if the Dolphins need to have Fales come into a game.
You thing Osweiler watches the Fales bomb and knows his time is up?
I couldn't have said it better myself.
Jarvis Landry is a lot like Mike Wallace in that the two were not complete receivers. Neither had the ability to be dangerous on everything they do, or even most things you could ask of them. Just as it was a mistake to pay Mike Wallace $12 million per year in 2013 (when the salary cap was $123 million), it is a mistake to give Jarvis Landry $15.1 million per year now (with the salary cap at $177.2 million).
We have a Mike Wallace. His name is Kenny Stills. And the Dolphins managed to get him at a very affordable contract (literally about half as much as Wallace got, relative to the salary cap).
I would suggest the same about Danny Amendola, but I think even the most optimistic of us realize that Danny's durability issues are much greater than we enjoyed with Jarvis Landry (who amazingly played all 65 games for which he was eligible here).
Every time Tannehill connects with Parker is a good thing. We'll need that but you look around and see there's plenty of good targets this year. I'd like to hear more Tannehill connects with Gesicki tho
I think that be a little unfair to Fales, but wiil find out more as time goes on I think.
I will say that I doubt we make any more moves at QB unless this is an injury, so it is what it is for this year.
He looked like ‘trash’ really Omar, that might have been a little overstated- but whatever- I pay no more attention to his opinions now.
