Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill is doing his job. Now it’s up to the people who catch his passes – the tight ends and wide receivers – to do their jobs.
The Dolphins’ wide receivers and tight ends have too many dropped passes so far, the bulk of those coming in the last two games against Dallas and Atlanta.
“I think we have to clean up the drops,” coach Adam Gase said Sunday.
Here’s the way you have to look at this situation: the wide receivers and tight ends must make Tannehill better, not the other way around.
The Dolphins have waited four years for Tannehill to make the receivers better and it hasn’t worked.
The notable exceptions here have been wide receiver Kenny Stills, who has been outstanding, and tight end Dion Sims, who has met expectations. The other starting-caliber pass catchers have been shaky. Unofficially, tight end Jordan Cameron has three drops (two in the end zone), wide receiver Jarvis Landry has three (two in the end zone), wide receiver DeVante Parker has two (one in the end zone), the story pointed out.
