It has been suggested that Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill is tipping plays at the line of scrimmage. Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald reported that fans have noticed their quarterback shouting “go” before pass plays and “go go” before a run. A defense catching wind of that would have an obvious advantage.
“It’s not always that way,” tight end Michael Egnew told the newspaper. “A lot of people think they know and have no idea.”
Tannehill himself also shrugged off that notion.
“I don’t think there’s concern,” Tannehill said. “We go against our defense every day throughout camp and OTAs. If we were tipping off something that was so blatantly obvious, they would tell us, and they would be able to defend it.”
During the game on Monday Night Football, commentator Jon Gruden suggested that offensive guard John Jerry was tipping off plays by craning his neck to look at Tannehill before passing plays.
“I don’t worry about that,” Jerry said.
