Miami Dolphins' Mike Wallace impressed with Ryan Tannehill


The Miami Dolphins are riding high, currently 3-0 as they prepare for their national game Monday night against the New Orleans Saints.

Much of their success can be attributed to quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who despite troubling issues with fumbles, continues to lead the Fins down the right path.

It’s a path that Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace wasn’t expecting, at least not this early, but he’s glad to be riding the wave:

I think he’s a really good player. I think he’s ahead of where I thought he would be,” said Wallace. “He’s a smart player. Whatever it is, the hype and stuff we’ve been getting the past week or two, he’s like, ‘I don’t care about it.’  He’s the same guy. He goes to work and prepares the same way. I think that’s going to make him a very good player. He doesn’t get caught up in the hype. He continues back to work and worries about what he did wrong. He’s not worried about the good throws he made, he’s worried about the ones he missed. As long as our quarterback is working like that, we’ll be fine.”

The second year signal caller has thrown for over 275 yards per game during the Dolphins’ three wins, including four touchdowns en route to a 94.3 passer rating.
