11:16 AM ET 05.12 | Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill will look you in the eye and tell you that ???last year wasn???t good enough,??? that he simply must improve his completion percentage (23rd in the league) and third-down performance (30th). But there is so much encouragement in his voice now, optimism rooted in the personal growth he expects from studying ???every one of my [rookie] snaps more than once??? during the past two months, from identifying his shortcomings and correcting them, and from the shiny new toys general manager Jeff Ireland has given him. Quick story: Receiver Mike Wallace was running routes recently when Tannehill ??? impressed by his blazing speed - told him he should go only half speed. ???I am going half speed,??? Wallace responded, according to Tannehill.

It would be a bit more newsworthy if they expected him to suck.
