    Tannehill missed 96 "slides" or views of plays in one day of practice

    By missing only one practice, Tannehill missed 96 “slides” or views of plays the quarterbacks went over on the first day of practice.

    “There’s a lot of information that he’s missing,” Moore said. “ … He’ll definitely be a step behind missing a day. In training camp, the way it is now, that’s a huge piece with only the one practice and a walk-thru.
    “That’s a big deal so he’ll have some stuff to make up and stuff to study up on.”
    Then Moore, who is competing with Tannehill added slyly, “but he should be fine when he comes back.”
    Yeah, he’ll be fine. If he misses a week, he’ll be fine and buried as a No. 3 quarterback for a long time.
    That’s bad news for the Dolphins, right?
    Well, the irony of it all is the Dolphins need Tannehill but are dealing from a position of strength because they don’t necessarily need him right now. While the quarterback competition is billed as open to all comers, the club seems comfortable if either Garrard or Moore win the job while allowing Tannehill to marinate a bit, learning to be a professional before being fed to angry defenses.
    So the club can afford itself the luxury of pushing back hard against Tannehill’s representative. It can afford to delay the start of Tannehill’s run as the face of the franchise. It can play hardball.
    And even if the Dolphins eventually cave, they lose nothing. Giving up on the offset language issue would mean Miami is doing the same thing most every other team did. As embarrassments go, that one wouldn’t even qualify.
    Perhaps this sounds like a bunch of inside baseball stuff. It isn’t. It’s an issue that is pointing the Dolphins away from having Tannehill compete for a starting job while Garrard and Moore are improving their chances.
    “I think my chances are pretty good,” Garrard said. “I don’t think they’d have me here or say it’s an open competition if they weren’t good. I know I can still play. I just got to continue to prove it on the field.”
    Yes, the field. That place Ryan Tannehill cannot yet visit.

    Since he was not there at camp, they could not review the film and correct the mistakes....

    He will not be starting anyways, he can pick it up over the season..if he signs.

    Someone call that crazy lady and set her straight so we can get him in camp.

    WRONG!

    He knows the playbook for Texas A%M, this is the Miami Dolphin playbook they are teaching now.

    Sure he's missed a few plays but he has an Ipad playbook and I'm sure he's trying to keep up.
    if he signs in a day or two no harm done. i would not make a mountian out of a mole hill just yet.

    If it were so magnanimously important that Tannehill not miss "96 slides" then the team would have signed him and removed the contractual language in question. Every play is on film, so either he'd see it from the sidelines or at a later date in a film room. Big deal.

    Hopefully things will work out with Tannehill. For now Moore is definately the #1 guy.
