Miami Dolphins coach Joe Philbin unfazed by criticism over Chad Johnson being cut doesn't came as surprise and the tipping point came when the wide receiver was charged with misdemeanor domestic abuse of his wife.release including some of his players. But when the former Green Bay offensive coordinator was hired as Dolphins coach this year, he promised about building a foundation, building a program and building a football team that could deliver sustained success over a period af time. With that said
On the other side of the coin, Philbin drafted young quarterback Ryan Tannehill to someday take the snaps, and it was realized when Miami Dolphins named Ryan Tannehill as the Week 1 starting quarterback, ESPN reports. Dolphins rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill from Texas A&M had a impressive preseason debut Friday night. Tannehill completed 14 of 21 passes for 167 yards, including an 11-yard touchdown to tight end Charles Clay in the third quarter for Miami's only score in a 20-7 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in preseason week 1.
On preseason week 2 Tannehill struggled against Carolina Panthers but still finished 11 of 23 for 100 yards passing in 23-17 loss. Veteran rookie Matt Moore played worst having completed 5 of 15 passes for 57 yards. Naming Tannehill the starter now provides about three weeks of preparation against Houston Texans on Week 1 NFL 2012 season.
Dolphins Offense Joe Philbin is not a primary play-caller for the Dolphins but he did design a the offensive gameplan for the Packers that led the NFL in points scored with 15-1 season record. Now that Tannehill is their franchise quarterback he has all the advantage learning under his college coachwho is now the Offensive coordinator for the Dolphins. Tannehill would be having fun on his wide outs that leads so far after the 2 preseason games with rookies Lamar Miller and Rishard Matthews are on target.
