ESPN Analyst and former Indianapolis Colts general manager Bill Polian was at practice on Monday and he had high praise for quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
“[He's] exceptionally bright, exceptionally high character, all Dolphin fans know that,” said Polian. “I love Ryan Tannehill. I said on ESPN in my first year as an analyst, having scouted all three quarterbacks for the Colts, that I thought that Andrew Luck, RGIII, and Ryan Tannehill were the three can’t miss quarterbacks in that draft and Russell Wilson wasn’t far behind. Ryan has proven to be a sound and solid quarterback. He’s gotten better every year, his statistics are very, very good, [and] they compare very favorably with RGIII and with Andrew.”
“It takes time and patience,” said Polian. “They need to play together and become cohesive, and they need to learn and adjust to Bill Lazor‘s offense, which is different from what they had last year.”
