Has Ryan Tannehill Come of Age?

Miami Dolphins have been waiting for the time that their starting QB Ryan Tannehill will start guiding this team in the right direction. After the Dolphins gutty 31-24 win over the 49ers on Sunday, it’s hard to deny that Tannehill has arrived.

The Dolphins are winners of six straight after starting the season 1-4. Tannehill, though is ripping apart the stat sheets, is making big plays when the team needs it and most importantly is winning games. Through this win streak, Tannehill has thrown 9 TDs compared to just 1 INT. Compare that to his 3 TDs to 5 INT ratio in the team’s four losses. This is a pretty impressive turn around and maybe a sign that Tannehill is finally coming of age.

We will really get to see Tannehill on display as we get to the critical aspect of the scheduled. This includes game @ Baltimore, @ Jets and Bills and then they is home against New England . If he continues to guide his team as they head for a major playoff push, it would be hard to ignore Tannehill’s ascension.

Tannehill was the 8th overall pick in 2012, taken behind Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III. We know RGIII’s plight has been checkered and we are seeing the struggles Andrew Luck is having with a team with a depleted offensive line. Tannehill has benefited from a strong offensive line and a solid running game. Tannehill is just making the best out of the situation.

Born in the Nation’s Capital, Washington D.C., Ari Russell watched the rise of the 1980’s Miami Hurricanes and knew that he had to be part of the “U” someday. After graduating from Coral Gables, Ari rose through the ranks of the former XM Satellite Radio and then Sirius/XM as college football executive producer. He later spent 2 seasons as the publisher of the website “Beyond U Sports” focusing on major college football/basketball. Ari brings a great perspective on everything Miami, including the Dolphins to F.F.I.
