Post Signs of Leadership from Tannehill?
Quote:
I must tell you, I saw some good signs from Tannehill in that regard Sunday. There were two snapshots that showed he's the leader and he has the respect of his teammates.

First, there was a moment when left guard Richie Incognito did what he sometimes does and got into debate shall we say with an opposing lineman. It had the potential to lead to pushing and shoving and a flag.
Tannehill stopped it by telling Incognito, an older player, to get back to the huddle.

"Yeah, he got into it a little bit," Tannehill said. "That’s my job on the field, to keep my guys focused on what we’re trying to do, which is go down and score. Obviously, football is an intense game, there’s a lot of emotion. Guys are going to get into it here and there but when its sidetracking us from what we’re trying to do, we ‘ve just got to focus, lock in and get ready for the next play."

Tannehill was a little harsher with receiver Rishard Matthews. The second-year receiver was getting hot and arguing with a Cleveland defender in the second half when Tannehill seemingly had enough and cursed out his teammate while demanding he get off the field.

The words were heard on television.

And off the field Matthews went.

"I forget what yard line we were on, but if we get a 15 yard penalty right there, it’s a long field goal and if we kick that field goal right there we put it at 13 points, a two touchdown game," Tannehill said. "We really didn’t need a dumb penalty right there and I just tried to get him off the field the best way I could."

This is what we all have been waiting for. I know it's one game, but I'm very excited about RT. Limit the picks. I hate the pick of game that we are use to so hopefully RT can get his td/int ratio up. If he does, we will win a lot of games.

I saw the one with Matthews and was very impressed. I was laughing when he started yelling at him. Go Tanny!
I didn't hear what he said, but it didn't look like he was complimenting his wife's cooking.

Yes.

I'm glad you mentioned that because I found this snippet comical.

I posted on the inside chat boards about some things he could've done better against Cleveland and his followers made it known quickly that I was treading on thin ice.


Really, bro?

People disagree with your analysis and all of a sudden it's his "followers" letting you know that you're "treading on thin ice"?

Paranoid much?

Anyone "objective" easily sees that Wallace is open. Vision is usually the 2nd thing to go with age.

Junkie, you'd make a great tyrant.

You've got the "my way or the highway" thing down. I can also see you've also got a subtle "anyone who disagrees with me should be utterly destroyed" propaganda thing working under the surface too.

Sorry that people disagreeing with your opinion and analysis amounted to a mob with pitchforks telling you to watch yourself in your mind.

Sanity is actually the first thing to go with old age...

And add one more thing too...let it go. The debate is done, we've beat it to death. You have an opinion one way and others have an opinion the other way. No biggie. Let's get these Colts this week.

:) ... Yeah sadly that is probably true...but I would be a good king...I'd pull your finger nails in an effort to get you to see things my way before destroying you... No, I appreciate you disagreeing with me and appreciated the passionate defense of Tannehill. In Marino's heyday you couldn't criticize his 2nd grade art work without getting beat up. So it shows me that Tannehill is gaining the respect of the fans. That is the real message I intended to convey on the front page...nothing hidden. :youwin:

Mak obviously wasn't around for the month long ragers of Thrawn and Junkie. Rich and I are much more civil these days. A day? That's like a walk in the park. BTW...its gone. Hopefully I'll be able to point out his "weakness" after another victory :runwiththeball: j/k

I wonder what he said to Incognito earlier in the game...


"Please sir... please don't get angry..."

Or maybe...

"Goooooooosfrabbaaaaaaaaa"

He just said Wallace had a huge impact on the game even though it doesnt show it in the box score and that he explained that to him to calm him down. But that they're going to get him involved more moving forward, but won't force the situation. He's sounds wise beyond his years.

Tannehill is doing a much better job on looking off WR's and reducing batted passes. He looks very comfortable and confident running the offense and has no problem calling an audible. I think he still needs to improve on his pocket awareness and tuck it and run quicker instead of taking sacks. I hope he can get Wallace more involved in the passing game and that Lamar Miller can run this weekend.
