More Tannehill? More coming. Just not today. Maybe late tonight.

Note: I had a late night with family in Atlanta and didn’t get home until 15 minutes ago. This means the additional RyanTannehill analysis won’t be posted today. I’ll have it up this weekend. But if you haven’t seen my analysis of David Wilson, Kendall Wright, and (apparently) one play of Terrance Williams, check them out here:

  1. David Wilson Series on Vision: Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV
  2. Kendall Wright Analysis: Routes and The Money Catch
  3. RyanTannehill Series on Pocket Presence: Part I

I already have the rest of this Friday segment written so I’m posting this note with it to let you know that more Tannehill is on its way. Also expect to see some analysis from some of these players during the next 7-10 days: Arizona State QB Brock Osweiler, Oregon RB LaMichael James, Oklahoma State QB Brandon Weeden, and Georgia TE Orson Charles.

  1. Man, could Basie’s band swing. That was so cool, I had to listen twice. Took me back to college, when I played alto sax in our school’s jazz band, and “Whirly Bird” was one of my favorite tunes to play. I don’t remember taking it that fast though!

    I come here for the football stuff, but so great to get pick me ups to my day like this. Thanks for posting it!
