Tannehill is being looked upon by many as if this is his make-it-or-break-it year. It is time to do or die, they’re telling him. However, this is really his true rookie year.
First of all, I want to clarify that it isn’t because of what may seem to be the obvious that he played WR up until his last season and a half in college. That isn’t why. The real reason why, is because Tannehill came into the NFL alongside of his college coach. There was never a "transition" for him. There was familiarity, there was comfort, and there was a big lack of change in the coach-player relationship between the two of them. Because of this coach to QB relationship carrying through from the Aggies to the Dolphins, neither Coach Sherman nor Ryan Tannehill felt the true elevation to the professional level.
So, now, in his 3rd year in the league, and with 3 full seasons under center and under the guidance of his college coach, he is finally going to go through a transition to the professional level. Bill Lazor is the new coach and Tannehill is learning a new system, a new tempo, and finally being moved out of his comfort zone to make the change toward becoming an NFL quarterback. Considering his almost 4000 yards last year in a college level offense against NFL defenses, this is a very exciting prospect for Dolphins fans
