Ryan Tannehill has thrown six interceptions in two days but he doesn't seem too concerned with it at this time. He wants fans to know too that it's not a huge issue, especially since the coaching staff is experimenting with different things.
"It's a combination of a bunch of stuff. Some throws we're trying to make in practice to see if we want to move on with them during the season," Tannehill said. "We have other answers on the plays, but the coaching staff wants to look at some throws against different coverages and see if we can complete them. I think we've come to the conclusion we're going to move on to another route."
Tannehill said that it will take a few years to get the offense down 100% but he is starting to get into a rhythm when calling the plays and then executing them.
"It takes a couple of years to not even have a second of hesitation," Tannehill said. "I'm starting to get with it on a lot of our plays on this offense but we just finished our install today. It's going to be a few weeks at least before those plays are second [nature]. Obviously we're spending more time than in college studying and watching tape so it should happen a lot faster. But like I said, we just finished our install today and it should be a couple of weeks before it's second nature."
Tannehill knows they will improve because there are plays now where he doesn't hesitate but a few weeks ago, he was slow in executing them.
"Definitely, definitely," he said. "I had a couple of plays today where I reacted just a half-second late. And as soon as it's over, I knew. You don't have to get coached up. You just know. And I can think back the first couple of practices where I had those plays and that happened, when those situations came up again, it didn't happen. These new plays we're going over, same thing, it won't happen again."
