Tannehill had some issues again connecting with primary target Mike Wallace, missing his receiver wide open on a deep route in the first half. On his first drive after halftime, Tannehill was picked off by Tyler Patmon. The third-year quarterback compiled 119 yards through the air while completing 13 of 21 passes. He had one interception and finished with a 57.4 passer rating.
Mike Wallace did not appear to be on the same page with Tannehill. Wallace failed to come down with a deep pass on the opening drive. He also dropped a bubble screen pass late in the first quarter.
Tannehill worked three series with the first-team offense and saw his night come to an end when he was strip-sacked by Gerald McCoy on the first play of the second quarter. He completed 9 of 14 pass attempts for 110 yards through the air, registering a 88.4 passer rating.
"It’s helped me get the ball out faster, have more velocity on some of my throws, and just be more consistent,” Tannehill told the Miami Herald. "Some of the incompletions I’ve had in the past are due to inconsistent footwork. That was his big key coming in to say: 'Hey, we’re going to get your feet right and then everything else will take care of itself.'"
"I thought he had 10 good plays," Lazor told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. "I thought he showed command, I thought he was very decisive on the field, the ball came out of his hand on time with all of them. He has a really good grasp of what we're doing.
"My job right now is to push him," Lazor added. "I've got to make it very hard for him out here on the practice field. I heard a rumor that some people have reported we've made it hard for him on the field. That's on purpose. That's how you build a quarterback. He's coming."
Working under Bill Lazor's new offense, Tannehill opened the preseason with a 10-play, 73-yard drive which ended on a 6-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Gibson on the opening drive. He was pulled for Seth Lobato after the first series of offense. Tannehill completed all six of his pass attempts for 62 yards and a touchdown.
