While the Miami Dolphins were a nice surprise last season, the same can’t be said for the chemistry between quarterback Ryan Tannehill and wide receiver Mike Wallace. The two struggled to put themselves on the same page and Wallace eventually couldn’t help but vent his frustrations publicly.
The two were said to be developing a much better on-field relationship this offseason and from all accounts, everything seemed to be lining up for an impressive season between the two Miami Dolphins stars. However, with just weeks until the NFL’s regular season kick’s off, it doesn’t appear the chemistry between the two is getting any better.
Both Ryan Tannehill and Mike Wallace insist they are in much better synch than they were a season ago when deep pass connections eluded them as if they planned for the quarterback to repeatedly underthrow the open receiver.
I don’t see a significant improvement so far.
Ryan Tannehill’s arm isn’t ever going to wow anybody and given Wallace’s desire to get down field, the two aren’t exactly a good pairing. Add in that Mike Wallace can sometime elephant arm passes that come his way and it’s understandable as to why Tannehill doesn’t always try to force passes to his wideout.
You’d like to hope both would be able to find a resolution to their issues as they’re vital to the success of the Miami Dolphins, however it sounds like the two are still struggling to develop a much needed chemistry on the gridiron.
For what it’s worth, the Miami Herald’s Armando Salguero says he hasn’t seen the two workout out post-practice either, though cites Wallace’s hamstring injury as a potential reason as to why.
