    Love it.

    Get in DVP's face and tell him get his **** together while you're at it.

    Seem uncharacteristic for RT to go off like that, but sometimes an a## chewing is what it takes to motivate.

    Having been in charge of ppl, I can tell you that not everyone responds the same way. Some need to be coddled .and some need a swift kick to get the best. The tricky part is knowing which is which. You can destroy some ppl by berating them.

    I assume Ballage can take it, otherwise Gase would have made a different comment. I would think that psych profiles are used in the NFL when dealing with 20 yr old millionaires.

    He strikes me as one who would be destroyed by a public berating. As in he lacks toughness.

    Tannehill needs to throw Parker's worthless butt out of training camp. What a waste of a 1st round pick.

    I like Ballage. I think this dude is smart and will become a good running back.

    I tend to think you don't do this with people you don't give a damn about. RT sees a lot of potential in Kalen.
    He probably doesn't give a crap about DVP at this point.

    This is great news. We have needed that in our qb's since Dan. Dan use to rip ppl apart. rivers does it now. There is a time and place for it like gase said, but this sounds like ryan is starting to get it. Your QB needs a little bit of *** hole in him.

    This is completely true. Some people motivate by a kick in the butt and some by a pat on the back.
    My bet is that the NFL is far more kick in the butt personalities.

    Thing is you need your QB to be a starter for at least a couple of years so he gets comfortable enough to do that sort of thing... They havent had that kind of continuity at QB for the longest time... On top of that, you also need the QB to feel like the coaching staff has his back... Tannehill now has both those things and you start to see the leader come out...

    I think if it was the kind of thing where he was making a critical mistake repeatedly, then yeah, you have to jump on him. Otherwise, meh. Leadership isn't all about yelling at people.

    I get the impression most here have played organized ball. And you're right. Coaches (or QBs) jump on guys they see as having potential. Say nothing to those who are already doing their best. In this case, I doubt RT jumped on Ballage for ONE mistake. More likely, this was a mistake that could have been costly. Glad to see RT take control and I'll bet Ballage will respond with more study.

    Good lord is this actually a top headline on ESPN?

    They must really think Ryan is some sort of clueless baffoon if they think he is starting to grasp a leadership role because of this.

    I like how things change sometimes.

    I found out about this from Twitter and couldn’t count all the times people wish that Tannehill would do this sort of stuff. Show some fire! Do something! Yet now that this came out those same people are saying that he is a blowhard that hasn’t got the foothold on this team to go and do such a thing.

    Smdh, either you want it or you don’t. Personally, I think he has seen enough of the sky from being planted on his *** from missed blocks to let that stuff continue to slide.

    By all means, continue. Not going to get your wrist slapped by me for calling a spade a spade...

    yelling at a rookie for a mental mistake seems like low hanging fruit

    I have heard that learning NFL protection schemes is difficult

    You would think so. I know every coach I ever had in HS, and college, without exception was a hard a$$. The guys that couldn't deal just kind of fade away. There were guys who were just so talented that they got somewhat of a pass though. I doubt that happens in D1 or the pros though.

    Depends. First time mistake? OK. Second time? WTH. Third time? Woodshed.

    Excellent point about the coaching staff. Philbin would never have backed him up.

    Has Tannehill earned the right to do this yet? Has he reached this status as a QB?

    Tannehill's career is on the line. A missed assignment in a real game can end it. I don't see the problem here.

    May also depend on the error. Run the wrong route equals incomplete pass. Miss a block and I(QB) get injured

    Apparently a blown assignment to block Harris off the edge. In a game, a sack would be the best outcome. A career ending hit .the worst. In any case, now is the time to correct the problem. I'm sure 17 didn't go off if it was the first time.

    Maybe Dan's been in his ear and maybe he figures his career is on the line with how he and his team play this year. I don't think he liked sitting out all those games and doesn't want to happen again. Either way, if Ballage can't take a guy like Tanny yelling at him, that's soft. I'm sure it's blown way out of proportion by the media because it's the Dolphins. Solid QB's give players grief all the time for not doing their job and I'm all for it

    Plus we can’t keep letting these mental mistakes continue, that’s what keeps killing the offense. I don’t think it was a coincidence on the same day Parker was getting an ear full from Gase.

    Maybe if we did this more often we would have less stupid penalties.

    So he’s not allowed to demand more from players?

    Some people before would rag on his leadership or fire or whatever and now we get an example of it and some are saying he hasn’t earned that right. Make up your f***ing mind peope

    The last time he showed leadership in practice, he got lambasted on Twitter and in here. It was Grimes wife with the start of her Twitter campaign against Ryan. The thing about a practice squad player messing up a walk through. Was that the year before Gase got here?

    There was nothing leader-like about that rant, as I believe he acknowledged and apologized for. This appears to be a completely different situation and approach by Tannehill.

    Honestly I like ballages potential but I follow him on Instagram and he does seem to have a lot of immaturity issues. I know he really is just a kid to us old guys. At the same time I'm not young rich and semifamous

    And maybe if he took to task all the OL men for making him piss blood and receivers for running bad routes and not fighting for the ball, that wouldn't be the case! !!
    I just watched Hard Knocks where 1-31 Hue Jackson told his coaches, mostly Todd Haley that he's the one sitting in the decision-making seat. Maybe he should have just shut up ya think??
