Ryan Tannehill is entering a big year as he hopes to silence many of the critics who have been saying that he may not be the answer to the Miami Dolphins long-term quarterback position. Leading up to the 2014 season, Tannehill has seen enough of his team to think that the playoffs and even Super Bowl isn't out of the question.
"I definitely feel this team can make the playoffs and make a run to the Super Bowl," Tannnehill told USA TODAY Sports. "We have all the talent we need. Now whether we maximize our potential and play as a team week in, week out is to be determined. But from a talent and attitude standpoint, I like what I see."
Furthermore, Tannehill sees plenty of playmakers on the team and is excited about his brand new offensive line.
"I see an offensive line with five new guys up front working hard to come together," he said before turning his attention to his receivers. "A year with Mike Wallace, two with Brian Hartline, rookie Jarvis Landry and tight end Charles Clay, we have all the playmakers needed. Now it's just a matter of scoring points on Sunday."
To his credit, Tannehill understands the pressure that's facing him in 2014 but is embracing every bit of it.
"Going into your third year as a quarterback, new offense, it's about stepping forward as a leader — being the guy everyone looks to on the team to win games," said Tannehill. "I want that pressure on my shoulders to go win games."
