Tannehill, Sherman and.... Heyward-Bey

I'm sure that we all felt that the Dolphins threw away a win against the Jets, and that we are all unhappy about it. Putting aside our feelings on the immediate, how do we feel about the way we played, with regards to the bigger picture?

I really like what I see from Tannehill. Sometimes you see flaws in players that are part of them. Every mistake I have seen Tannehill make is correctable. Maybe he will work out, maybe not, but his mind seems to be in the right place and I think that makes him look very promising.

Sherman's play calling may not have been ideal for the occasion at times, but I got the impression that he was encouraging the rookie QB to approach the situation without fear. Take some shots, go for the win, make the defense cover all possibilities, not just a safe run to set up the field goal.

Next time we are in this situation, I will be happy to see throws to the end zone again. I would have thought after all the Dan Henning complaints, this would be a breath of fresh air for most.

One final thought. After watching Heyward-Bey carted from the field after being knocked out in the end zone against the Steelers, I returned to a thought that occurs to me fairly often. With the changing of the rules every year, and the seemingly high percentage of serious injuries actually caused by helmets, is there a case to be made for a review of the protection that players wear?

I appreciate that this might be a controversial idea, but what about wearing padded head protection rather than helmets, stop players going in with their head, and perhaps losing some of the armour. Rugby is a fairly brutal game, but they seem to avoid so many serious injuries. Just a thought...
