Amid speculation and reports about several players being unhappy with offensive coordinator Bill Lazor, Ryan Tannehill has spoken out and has talked about how his relationship has been. More specifically, Tannehill described it as good, professional and healthy.
“It’s good. I think he does a good job of creating a game plan for us, putting us in positions to make plays during the game with his play calling. I think our relationship has definitely grown as the season has gone on. I’ve gotten to know him more and his personality more and we’ve gotten more on the same page on not only football stuff, but just joking around with each other as well.”
Lazor is known to be very demanding of his players, which could rub some the wrong way. However, Tannehill said that he sees no problem with that and actually welcomes it because it makes everyone better.
“No, that’s his job to push us and to make us better players. If he’s letting things slide under the table, then he’s not doing his job to make us the best that we can be. So I think he does a good job of constantly pushing us.”
As more information comes out and as more speak out about it, the original report from Jeff Darlington of the NFL Network seems to be nothing but a passing story that will likely soon completely fade away.
