I know I said that these players are not big names but there is no question that Tannehill is the key to this years success. He has had a very solid pre-season thus far and the Dolphins need that success to continue all four quarters of each game. Tannehill must develop a killer instinct and not simply settle for field goals. He is but one part of this entire offense and team but he is a vital and critical part of it.

Tannehill has worked on his deep ball this off-season and while it may not be perfect it appears to be better than it was in the past. There is no escaping what the deep pass will bring to the offense. It will open the underneath, open the running game, and put the team in position to score more points. How well Tannehill can achieve success this  year will be a huge reason for this team advancing through the season and into extra weeks of playing time.
