The experts believed Miami Dolphins were going to have a poor run as there are no stars on their team. However, with Ryan Tannehill,
the quarter back on the team, they have been able to stay up there. A
week ago, he threw two touchdown passes and the team was able to turn
back continuous scoring threats from St. Louis. Miami won the game
despite the team was outgained 462 yards to 192. Let’s see why he is
important for Miami to reach the play-offs this season.
A rookie at quarterback
Dolphins took a big risk, by giving a chance to this young rookie.
There are high chances of such a move not working out as being a
quarterback requires a lot of confidence. However, the story has been
different in case of Ryan. He has gotten better with every game
he played so far. In his first game, he had no touchdowns and three
inceptions, while the improvement can be seen from his two touchdowns
against St. Louis. He is passing of age, and has a completion percentage
of around 60% for the season.
The team has the potential to grow with him
you look at the team, the Dolphins have no star players at the wide
receiver position. Ryan Tannehill has done a great job in the absence of
a star in that position. In the future, he can even give out more to
the team if the fins buy a star wide receiver to support Ryan Tannehill.
He has more to deliver
would be too early to consider him the best quarterback the NFL league,
and some of you may consider it an illusion as well. However, what he
has done so far looks promising. If he continues in the same way as he
has been doing this year, there is no reason he can’t be ranked among
the best in the team, and surpass his ranking of the number 8th overall
pick in the NFL Draft this year.
He has made himself someone that the team can rely on, and Miami Dolphins tickets
are being sold in good numbers, which means Ryan has support of the
fans. There are still 7 games to play for Miami Dolphins. The defense
has been able to step it up after the first 7 weeks. The last 3 games
against the Bills, New England Patriots and New York Jets can decide
play a huge role in the playoff hunt.
