Q: What was Ryan Tannehill looking at (Friday night against Jacksonville)? He didn’t even try to throw to Mike Wallace – Gordon P., Miramarhttp://www.sun-sentinel.com/sports/miam ... 9860.story
A; Here’s what he wasn’t looking at: Mike Wallace. We can throw up all the qualifiers – preseason game, line problems, etc … - but this is a head-scratcher. The preseason, their first time together, line problems - those can be reasons to throw to Wallace, too. Plus, a rookie cornerback was on him and a single safety was back. And Tannehill didn’t even look at Wallace much of the night. Wallace lined up on the right. Tannehill looked left most every play. It wasn't just Wallace. Once, when running back Lamar Miller went wide, a linebacker went with him, one-on-one, on an island, and Tannehill didn't look. Again, preseason game. I get it. But, again, this could’ve been a great night for Tannehill and Wallace to start a football relationship. Tannehill led a nice touchdown drive on his final possession. That was a baby-step forward for this offense. But not throwing at Wallace considering this situation (first time together, rookie CB, single safety up top much of the night). Can’t explain why Tannehill didn’t try. Don’t understand it at all.
