Miami Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland made an appearance on SiriusXM NFL Radio (via The Miami Herald) and said that he believes rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill will be ready to play “pretty quickly.” Part of Ireland’s belief is due to the fact that  “he (Tannehill)  has knowledge of the offense. There are two other experienced players (Matt Moore, David Garrard) who are great pro’s. We drafted him to let him compete for the position. We need to play better at that position, whether it’s a new player or Matt. That position really has to be more productive.” I really can’t imagine Tannehill having much success in his rookie year with not that many starts at the collegiate level.  The NFL is a whole other ball game and I don’t feel like he got enough snaps from under center in college to come into the pros and make an impact right away.
