Ryan Tannehill completed less than 50 percent of his throws in his first career start for the Miami Dolphins, a disappointing stat line for a guy that local columnists are already comparing to Dan Marino.
On a positive note, however, Tannehill appears to still have a strong connection with his college teammate Jeff Fuller. Arguably Tannehill’s best throw of the night came on a 20-yard completion to Fuller which helped set up a Dolphins touchdown.
Ultimately Tannehill didn’t do enough to win the starting job tonight, but he probably didn’t do anything to lose it. This competition probably drags on for another week.

Ryan Tannehill didn’t have the same success in week 2 of his young N.F.L. career that we saw in week one. Tannehill was sacked 3 times by the Panthers defense.

The Dolphins offensive line needs to get better to buy the young quarterback...

Early this morning, I received an email from the Miami Dolphins front office which confirmed that Ryan Tannehill will start tonight against the Carolina Panthers. I say, why not. Why not start Ryan Tannehill tonight and every game this season. Why did the team draft him eighth overall? In order to sit behind David Garrard and Matt Moore? Put him in the game.

Dolphins first round quarterback Ryan Tannehill's first preseason start is in the books and it's reasonable to assume that head coach Joe Philbin will not be naming the rookie the Week 1 starter this week.
