Adam Gase: Ryan Tannehill wasn’t worried about Dolphins drafting a quarterback

The Dolphins visited with the top quarterbacks in this year’s draft class, and they talked to Ryan Tannehill before the draft about what it would mean for his future if they chose a quarterback in the first round. But Tannehill wasn’t concerned.

That’s the word from Dolphins coach Adam Gase, who said this morning on PFT Live that Tannehill has always had the right attitude about focusing only on the things he can control.

That’s certainly good news for the Colts and their fans. Even when he returns, Luck will have to work hard to return to game form after missing so much time.

There were some things we couldn’t possibly project. Nobody could have predicted that Karlsson would score on 23.4 percent of his shots, if only because that’s an incredible outlier. What we should be reminded of, though, is just how much variance and small samples can mean in an 82-game season, let alone a 16-game football campaign. Karlsson was a cast-off Columbus foisted onto Vegas along with a first-round pick in an attempt to hold on to forward Josh Anderson.

The Pick This team is just too loaded to pick against. If the Saints just finish around 15th in terms of points and yards allowed per game, the offense will produce enough to help them win. If the defense is good again — and there’s reason to believe it will — then the sky is the limit for this team. 10 wins is a lot in the NFL but I wouldn’t bet on the Saints winning less than that in 2018, especially with four wins likely out of the gate before their bye. Even a conservative/pessimistic breakdown of their schedule can get you to 10 wins.

Gase believes Amendola is making the Dolphins better even before he starts catching passes.

“Any time you can get a guy who can not only produce for you but can be a great example for other guys in your locker room, he’s making other guys better,” Gase said. “He makes 24 other offensive guys better if they watch him work.”

The 32-year-old Amendola spent the last five years in New England before moving on this year, and Cheap Blackhawks Jerseys the Dolphins like the winning Cheap Donegal Gaa Jerseys attitude he brings from the Patriots.
