Ryan Tannehill holding Miami Dolphins teammates more accountable

DAVIE — 

Ryan Tannehill speaks often about how he needs to be who he is, that his personality is his personality and his demeanor is his demanor.

Well, Tannehill showed an assertive side in Sunday’s training camp practice, sending rookie running back Kalen Ballage out of the huddle after he made a mistake that would have led to a sack.

Tannehill then took it up with Ballage even further on the sideline.

“He was right today,” Miami coach Adam Gase said. “With that he did. I would have been upset if I was him. Because he knows what the result in a game would have been. And that would have been painful for him, for sure. So I think he was in the right. Kind of making an example there. When he does things like that, for our offense, that’s a good thing.”

Ballage has acknowledged it’s going to take some time for him to get the Dolphins offense down. He’s said it’s much more complex that what he did at Arizona State.

Tannehill is about to begin his seventh season in Miami, sixth as starter. It would make sense if he feels he is running out of time to have patience for significant mistakes, particularly costly mental errors.

Gase liked what he saw.

“I think it can be difficult because you’re trying to keep the tempo of practice,” Gase said. “And you can’t kick a guy out of the huddle all the time. You can’t shut it down all the time. And have big discussions. I think it’s a feel. Timing. When the right time to be like, ‘You know what? We’re not right here. We need somebody else in here.’”
