I'm also sticking to my guns. The Dolphins SHOULD win the AFC East. So playoffs should happen. Sadly, the OUT of division games should tell us much more about this team than the inner-divisional games.

Well we're sitting at 2-0, both wins on the road against AFC opponents.

Buffalo is looking better than expected, the Patriots are looking worse than expected. I still say this team needs to go 4-2 in the division; I think that's reasonable.

That puts us at 6-2.

So we need 3-4 wins out of the other 8 games (Falcons, @Saints, Ravens, Bengals, @Buccaneers, Chargers, Panthers, @Steelers).

Doable.

Ryan has had two good games and I don't expect the Falcons to ruin the trend. If we can get him confident early then we may be looking at a very nice season.

Those number are looking good....I would be ecstatic if he could maintain over 65% completion and 90 rating...

Someone on reddit posted this espn inside article if anyone was interested.

Quote:
Those wondering how quickly NFL teams move on to the next game will appreciate this little aside with Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator Mike Sherman. We spoke on the phone at 2:40 p.m. ET Monday, less than 24 hours after the Dolphins' 24-20 victory at Indianapolis. Sherman was already so deep into preparations for a Week 3 game against Atlanta that he could not immediately produce a short list of QB Ryan Tannehill's top plays from Sunday. He instantly recalled a couple of bad ones -- coaches rarely forget those -- before pointing to a field goal drive right before halftime as an underrated highlight.

"That drive was a pretty defining moment," Sherman said. "They had just scored. The place was going crazy. [Tannehill] was one, two, three completions in a row. That was the difference in the ballgame. Without that, they could have kicked a field goal late in the game."
Another game-defining moment came later. Trailing by a field goal deep into the third quarter, the Dolphins needed an explosive play to change the game. The need for personnel who can contribute such plays is precisely why the Dolphins drafted quarterback Tannehill in 2012 and signed receiver Mike Wallace this offseason. On Sunday, we saw those acquisitions pay off. Wallace beat his man with a double move. Tannehill threw deep. The 34-yard connection set up the winning 1-yard touchdown run.
This single play offers multiple entry points into a discussion about where Tannehill stands as a starting quarterback two games into his second season. The Dolphins are 2-0 and have already matched their 2012 total for road victories. Wallace is coming off a nine-catch, 115-yard game as the team's most dangerous receiver. For Tannehill, improvements in completion rate and yards per attempt have driven up his passer rating from 76.1 last season to 94.2 through two games. And his overall ascent figures to continue, if he can just cure one key glitch in his game.
In light of his early success in 2013 it's surprising to see Tannehill's Total QBR score through two games (52.7) hovering about where it was during his 2012 rookie season (50.4) -- right around the 50-point average on a 100-point scale. There is one primary reason for the lag, and the Dolphins are well aware of it. They are coaching to this specific point and saw positive results on the 34-yard pass to Wallace against the Colts.

Overall, Tannehill completed 23 of 34 passes (67.6 percent) for 319 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions against the Colts. He averaged 9.4 yards per attempt. But with five sacks and three fumbles, including one fumble the Colts recovered, Tannehill emerged from a rewarding victory with a below-average 44.4 QBR score. At first glance, Tannehill could have used better pass protection against the Colts' outside rushers. But any coach will tell you that avoiding sacks isn't just about creating the perfect offensive line. Quarterbacks must help out their blockers by stepping up in the pocket when the outside rushers reach target depths. Tannehill did this well when finding Wallace for the pivotal 34-yard reception. He erred in this aspect earlier in the game, with costly results.
"He is fearless in the pocket," Sherman said of his QB.

Fearlessness can be good when Tannehill is fitting aggressive throws between defenders in the middle of the field.
For example, a pass Tannehill zipped past linebacker Pat Angerer's ear 17 yards downfield found tight end Charles Clay with safety Antoine Bethea fast approaching. Clay gained another 50 yards after the catch. This was one of five passes Tannehill attempted between the yard-line numbers at distances greater than 10 yards past the line of scrimmage. He completed all five for 136 yards even though the one to Clay seemed a little risky ("dicey" was the word Sherman used).
Fearlessness can be bad when Tannehill gets too comfortable at his deepest point in the pocket.

It happened on consecutive drives to open the third quarter, first when Tannehill dropped back on third-and-10. Running back Lamar Miller was able to push linebacker Jerrell Freeman just past the pocket, but Freeman reached back for the football, knocking it loose as Tannehill tried to throw. The Colts recovered. Later, the Colts' Robert Mathis forced a Tannehill fumble when he got around right tackle Tyson Clabo. Clabo was not blameless, but if Tannehill had stepped up in the pocket, Mathis might not have reached him so easily.

Win-probability models built on 10 years of play-by-play data showed the lost fumble dropping the Dolphins' chances of victory 7.8 percentage points to 36.6 percent. Erasing that play from Tannehill's ledger pumps up his QBR score for the game from 44.4 to 55.6, according to Hank Gargiulo of ESPN Stats & Information. Erasing all three fumbles attributed to Tannehill brings the QBR score to 72.1, which would have been sixth-best in the NFL for Week 2. Of course, every quarterback would like to selectively delete bad plays. In this case, Tannehill's position coach, Zac Taylor, consulted with Tannehill on the sideline to make sure the quarterback got the message about climbing the pocket. Tannehill did, and the Dolphins won largely as a result.
It was second-and-10 from the Indianapolis 35 with 5:05 left in the third quarter when Tannehill and Wallace connected for the 34-yard gain to the 1. Mathis, the Colts' top pass-rusher, lined up wide and got around left tackle Jonathan Martin eight yards past the line of scrimmage -- right where Tannehill had set up initially. Tannehill hopped forward about six feet at just the right time. Mathis flew past him. Tannehill's throw was not perfect -- he could have led Wallace and the Dolphins might have scored on the play. But simply getting to the 1 produced Miami's largest one-play gain in win probability: 18.9 points, from 47.6 percent to 66.5. Tannehill completed all three passes on the drive for a total of 65 yards.
Tannehill and Wallace connected just once during a season-opening victory at Cleveland. A defensive coach I consulted said he thought Tannehill made significant strides from that game to the game against the Colts.

"He improved in all the things you want to see," the coach said. "He was more poised, more decisive, more accurate in the intermediate to deep passes. Three times, he threaded it. One was on a seam. Another was a bootleg when a safety came down and crunched him. Another was on a blitz. His strength is he is not afraid on those inside throws to thread the needle, and he is able to do it."
The defensive coach said he thought Sherman "babysat" Tannehill with a conservative plan in the opener at Cleveland before becoming much more aggressive against the Colts. Every game is different, of course. The Dolphins needed more points to beat the Colts than they needed to beat the Browns. We should remember, too, that this offense remains in transition. Tannehill lost an important target when tight end Dustin Keller suffered a season-ending knee injury. Wallace and slot receiver Brandon Gibson are new this year. Fullback Tyler Clutts arrived from the Houston Texans via waivers on Sept. 1.

Wallace brings deep speed, but feeding the ball to him on vertical routes has not been an overriding priority. The thinking is that Tannehill cannot buy additional time for Wallace the way Ben Roethlisberger could when Wallace played for the Pittsburgh Steelers. A wider range of routes might be necessary.

"That was unique to Roethlisberger," Sherman said. "There is no one like him at extending plays, and Mike has benefited from that. We are working with Mike on his route running -- curls, digs, comebacks and slants. He still has an opportunity to run go routes. We hit him on the double move."
Wallace is averaging 13.0 yards per reception, about the same as he averaged with Pittsburgh last season. Tannehill has averaged 15.6 air yards per attempt when throwing to Wallace. That is higher than Roethlisberger's mark when targeting Wallace over the past two seasons.
Sixteen pass attempts between Tannehill and Wallace over the first two games of 2013 isn't much to go on. For now, the Dolphins will be looking to see whether Tannehill continues stepping up -- not only in the figurative sense, but in the pocket as well.

That long reception to Clay was one of my favorite throws. Risky, but Tannehill probably knew the LBer in coverage wouldn't turn his head and swat the ball away (could've done it easily). Found the mismatch in coverage and exploited it for a big gain.

That's a fantastic article that really explains in detail what several of us have been saying is one of his few glaring weaknesses.

Great link, I remember that I had them also to start off last season's tracker but they got taken down.

Ryan is night and day when compared to last season. All the potential we saw in him is showing. I just wish that he ran more. I know it's not our offensive philosophy but a first down is a first down. Great game and finish by him tonight vs Atlanta.
