The Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins squared off on Wednesday night in Arlington in both teams final preseason game for 2012. It was the final game before Dallas and Miami make their roster cuts down to 53 players. Typically in the final preseason game the starters sit while the second and third team players see extensive playing time so the coaches can better evaluate them.
Ryan Tannehill is the opening day starter for the Dolphins but started the final preseason game in order to gain more experience. Tannehill was solid completing five of seven passes for 35 yards.
Jorvorskie Lane made his case to be the starting fullback for the Dolphins. His blocking was solid and he had a great catch and run in the second half where he ran over former Texas A&M teammate Lionel Smith during a 12 yard gain. Smith suffered a concussion on the play. It appears that Lane has done enough to make the Dolphins’ opening day roster.
Lamar Miller was projected by some to be a first round pick in the...

Proving that you don't have to be a fan of the NFL to play in it, Ryan Tannehill revealed in Tuesday's episode of HBO's Hard Knocks that he basically has no idea which NFL teams are in which divisions
The Miami Dolphins and former Texas A&M quarterback told backup quarterback Matt Moore he was "so lost on the divisions."
"I know our division and...
As a rookie in the NFL, Ryan Tannehill still has a ton to learn. Between memorizing the plays, adjusting to lifestyle changes and dealing with an incredibly steeper level of competition, the transition from college to the pros is always a challenge for any rookie quarterback. However, most rookies likely already know what division every team is in. Understanding the geography of...
You would think that an NFL rookie quarterback would be able name some of the other NFL teams and the divisions that they play in but Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill has no clue whatsoever.
Watch as he attempts to name the entire NFC North but fails to come up with a single team in this clip from Hard Knocks:
To be fair, Ryan's "not a huge pro fan"...
During Tuesday night’s Hard Knocks episode on HBO, it was revealed that Dolphins rookie quarterback<a href=""I wasn't a huge pro fan growing up; I wasn't loyal to any one team," said Tannehill, "so I don't really know the divisions, and even really conferences. I know most of the conferences but some of those, I really have no clue. And...
Arm Strength: X. Arm Accuracy: X. Defense Reading: X. 6 foot 4, 210 pounds: Check. Seriously, that is the only reason he was even considered a prospect, and then he suddenly goes top-10 due to Mike "worst halftime speech" Sherman and the Dolphins.
PS - Hot wife: X. Blonde Peggy Olsen is just as much overrated as this slot WR.
The NFL odds look to be in the Cowboys’ favor for their preseason finale against Ryan Tannehill and the Miami Dolphins, but stranger things have happened, especially in exhibition play. Dallas is coming off a 20-19 win last week over the St. Louis Rams, though the score looked much closer than it really was. The Cowboys were actually up 17-3 after the first quarter and 20-6 at...
The buzz surrounding Hard Knocks has dissapated since the dramatic release of Chad Johnson from the Miami Dolphins. On this week's episode though we got a classic Hard Knocks moment showing Dolphins rookie QB Ryan Tannehill channeling his inner Ryan Lochte. Watch as Tannehill tries to vaguely guess which NFL team is in which NFL division, saying the Kansas City Chiefs...
Today on ESPN Radio, hosts Mike Salk and John Kincade took turns taking shots at the Dolphins after last night'sepisodes Hard Knocks. Whether it was Vontae David calling his Grama or Ryan Tannehill not knowing the NFL divisions, the two ESPN radio hosts thought that last night's episode was another reason why the Hard Knocks and the Dolphins might not be the best fit....
This week’s episode of “Hard Knocks” was a vast improvement over the week before. Even if this season suffers for a lack of big personalities, the series is always able to tease quotes and tidbits out of players that we can use to make fun of them for the rest of the season, if not longer. And so it will be with Ryan Tannehill not knowing how the NFL divisions and conferences...
Congratulations to the Miami Dolphins for providing more headlines off the field rather than on it this preseason! The preseason is finally over, but not without embarrasments exascerbated by being on national TV on Tuesdays.As tough as it was to watch last night's last preseason contest, I mustered up the courage to lower the volume a bit on my laptop so I didn't have...
Throughout this season, Dolphins fans Vinny Ginardi and super-guest blogger Patrick Dillon will discuss each episode of the HBO series Hard Knocks. The two will exchange their thoughts on each episode and the ins and outs of the 2012 Miami Dolphins. They are hoping this will not be the most entertaining part of the season.
Vinny Ginardi: Ted Ginn. Brandon Marshall. Vontae...
As you can tell from write-up, I wasn’t too enthused with last week’s installment of “Hard Knocks”. It started with minor fallout to the decision to cut Chad Johnson, followed by 55 minutes of narrative about borderline roster casualties plus Ryan Tannehill being named starting QB by a mildly prickly Joe Philbin. Again, not necessarily things that are pointless but not exactly...
