PBP: Offense Giving Away Plays to Defenses?

"Coach Joe Philbin seemed surprised when he was asked why quarterback Ryan Tannehill shouts "go" right before a passing play, or "go go" right before a running play, on nearly every play of the game."

"I wouldn't know, Philbin said."

This has been floating around the blogs a while and it's the first time I've seen the question posed by a beat reporter. It seems the Miami Dolphins are not concerned, but I wonder what you all think about it. Miami, for years, seems to have never been a team that is good at fooling defenses. Channing Crowder, on radio, has also regularly said that he knows every time the Dolphins want to run the ball. And he extrapolates, that if he knows, then why wouldn't some defenses? Maybe it's a result of having to constantly simplify offenses because of the skill level of players. But maybe it could also be little things like this?

I have no idea about the go-go thing, but I'd be interested in hearing more about this.
