I know. It is hyper critical. He reminds me a lot of a young Tom Brady. His short throws are almost unstoppable because they're deadly accurate. Tom Brady grew up and started getting off a few deep balls....I guess I want him to rush the progress. I know you can't tell...but I'm estatic about RT. He's got the "it" factor.
I want the highlight throws too but I'm reminded of Grimes' interception of Luck, which was basically a forced deep throw. That will lose games for Miami right now.
I do not get the feeling that Tannehill is afraid to pull trigger or isn't seeing the opportunity to go deep. Sounds like he tried a lot during camp and saw the interceptions start to pile up. Instead he's taking what the defense gives and moving the ball. The difference between him and Pennington is that defenses didn't have to respect Chad's deep pass. Tannehill is hitting on his medium throws and has landed a few good deep passes as well. Combine that respect of deep throw ability with Wallace's speed and we're seeing the success of Hartline, Gibson and Clay to working the middle or in shorter routes.
This is what we had hoped for over the summer. Heck, if Miami ran every drive like a 2 minute drill they'd probably be scoring 30+ points per game with the way Tannehill is slinging it.
