The Miami Dolphins quarterback has shown plenty of ability on the field. Not so much when it comes to opining on the NFL's playoff picture entering Week 13.
"I had no clue until you just said that," Tannehill said.
"I wasn't a huge pro fan growing up; I wasn't loyal to any one team," Tannehill said at the time. "Don't really know the divisions, even really the conferences. I know most of the conferences, but some of those, I really have no clue. And they don't make sense! You have the AFC East, and we're freaking in the bottom of the map. The directions don't make any sense where the teams actually are."
He was but a youth back then. Tannehill probably knows MOST of the conferences by now. Besides, his decision-making on the field already has earned Bill Belichick's seal of approval.
"Tannehill's done a good job, given them some spark," the Patriots coach said, via Volin. "He's really a smart guy. You can certainly see that by the way he runs the offensive team: their audibles, the way he controls the line of scrimmage, gets them in and out of plays."
