Found September 11, 2012 on DraftAce:
PLAYERS: Ryan Tannehill
TEAMS: Miami Dolphins
Miami Dolphins rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill’s NFL career didn’t get off to a great start against the Texans on Sunday, but if you’re looking for something positive to take away from the game it’s his performance under pressure. According to Pro Football Focus, Tannehill completed 7 of 11 passes under pressure. Of the four incompletions, two were thrown away and one was dropped. So of his nine aimed passes, eight were on target. Unfortunately the other was intercepted. Obviously struggles are expected of rookie quarterbacks. All you can do is learn from the mistakes and find one or two positives to build upon. While much of the game was frustrating for Tannehill, this is definitely one area where he showed his true potential.
