Everywhere I look...on this site and in the press...everyone wants to nickname him. Can't he just be Ryan Tannehill?
Football doesn't always have to be cute.
That's a good question Mattatic!

None of these nicknames will carry over anyways, all of them have been lame and the only one that sounds good is his actual name.
How about Tanne "Chill" as in Cool under pressure. Maybe he can get in on some commercials with Ice Cube and Coors.

I also like Tanne "Thrill". Sounds like a Boomer nickname.
Ive been a fan of Tan the Man or Tan Marino.
Its just people having fun and being excited about finally finding a QB, in their own way. No harm done.
So when they are cuddling with their Ryan Tannehill dolls they have a cute nickname to call it...
