this is surprising. I did not think he fumbled all that much so far.

Quote:
Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill leads the NFL with five fumbles.
At the rate of five fumbles every three games Tannehill will break the NFL record of 23 fumbles in a season, a mark that’s shared by Giants quarterback Kerry Collins (2001) and Vikings quarterback Daunte Culpepper (2002).

Even if Tannehill falls short of that mark he could break into the NFL single season all-time top 10. If he gets to 17 fumbles he gets into that group.

He stands in the pocket like a statue at times, and seems oblivious to the pressure until he is hit.
Most QB's talk about the internal clock, and when the o-line goes through changes so do timings, and it takes a few games to adjust.

Hopefully he adjusts, because if not he probably is also on pace for IR the way he is getting hit..

ya that is an annoying trait for a QB to have. Roll out of the pocket or throw it away.

Sherman hinted to it this week in the media, so I am assuming they have been addressing it in house as well.

Quote:
“Maybe he could step up a little quicker in the pocket,” Sherman said. “He’s trying to do that a little bit more. He hung onto a read one time, on one sack.”


But Sherman is not doing him any favors with the continued plays that have him just drop back and pass.
I dont know what happened to the roll out, the bootleg etc. His highlights from last year have a bunch of them, if memory serves me they came into the mix later in the season tho. Could be an o-line issue, not being able to pull just yet or something like that.. But there are plenty of things Sherman does not do that people question.

Today's Hyde5:



1. Ryan Tannehill is the top reason the Dolphins are 3-0 today. His 94.3 quarterback rating puts into perspective his first three games. Of the two things he needed to improve on, his accuracy has shown great strides. The other one? Getting rid of the ball quicker remains. That's shown, in part, by his 14 sacks in three games. That's not all on him, of course. But it also ties into a glaring stat that needs to be cleaned up - Tannehill has fumbled in 14 of his 19 NFL games. Most of those are like his two on Sunday when he got hit in the pocket by Osi Umeyiora. The first was a blindside hit, so he couldn't see it coming. But the instinctual quarterback's clock in his head said he needed to be getting rid of the ball, as Bob Griese said on the radio broadcast. On the second hit, he just didn't protect the ball. Compare Tannehill's fumble rate per game (73.6 percent) to Tom Brady's 81 in 180 games (45 percent), or Peyton Manning's 61 in 227 games (27 percent) and you see how the number needs to come down. ...
