When Tannehill is under center, he either says "go" or "go go" to snap the ball. Nine out of ten times, when he says "go go" it's a running play and when he says "go" it's a pass play. If I've noticed this, I'm sure defenses do too.

Welcome to the Mike Sherman school of simpletons. Totally agree and it's just one way to illustrate our incompetence.

It also doesnt help when John Jerry is looking back at RT and then turning his head right before the snap

I literally thought Tampa (not sure who was lined up on Jerry...McCoy or Clayborn?) was jumping off sides every single play at the beginning of the game because of this glad I'm not the only person who has noticed this.

But yeah Omar has been on Go Go for a few weeks now. I'm not sure how Mike Sherman can possibly think that opposing D Coordinator don't know about this/why he wouldn't try and implement some type of change

I've seen the mentioned a few times the last few weeks, by Omar and others. Someone actually mentioned it to Philbin if i remember rightly and he said he wasn't concerned by it and didn't see it as an issue. i shall try find the link if i get time later

I don't understand how this isn't being made a huge deal. Opposing defenses literally know 100% of the time if we're running or throwing the ball on plays where Tannehill is under center. How is this not being talked about?!

I do see how this is a big deal... However, by your own admission, the opposing defenses only know 90% of the time, unless you're really bad with fractions:

Razz

But seriously. I blame this far more on Mike Sherman than I do Tannehill, seeing as Sherman is the man who implements all of our plays & audibles on offense. He's just too simplistic, in both palybook and on-the-field practices. Given our awful offensive coordinator and putrid offensive line, I do not believe we have the ability to evaluate Tannehill as a potential franchise QB at this point. If anything, his play is the sole reason we are competitive in most games. I do however worry about him becoming 'damage goods' due to these factors... I think a major reason for his "lack of pocket awareness" is due to his lack of faith in general about our offensive line's pass protecting ability .....

There were at least three times by my count where Tannehill barked "GO GO" and nobody in a Dolphins uniform moved, however the Chargers started to take off. If I recall, I believe he called an audible each time they did this. I don't remember the result of each ensuing play, however I don't think any of them were giant losses or anything (IE, the defense didn't sniff out the exact play).

For the (legitimate, IMO) concerns about Tannehill "giving the play away" with his cadences...If he's going to be able to use the cadence to try and trick defenses, I think I'd be all for that line of thinking if it continues.

I almost get the feeling it has more to do with Pouncey tipping the count with his head....

Your are all wrong. Here's how it goes, Ryan Tannehill has been taking so many sacks that well the psychological term is "now his brain is mashed potatoes with extra gravy". As a result he is having on field flashes back to his favorite childhood book that his mommy used to read to him at bedtime, the book is pictured below.

Yup. This is why being a Dolphins fan is so frustrating, all the coaching aspects of the game play to the other team's advantage.

The Chargers had like 3 offsides penalties yesterday. It seems they were confused by the cadence.

They weren't confused, they were just trying to jump his go go too early. I have yet to see a pass play out or the go go cadence.
