Pigsgerald Bacon has agreed to participate in a simulation. Today Piggy will be helping us demonstrate pocket awareness. Specifically the pocket awareness of our very own quarterback – Ryan Tannehill.
To appreciate the authenticity of the simulation – Piggy will be wearing a blindfold
That way Piggy will have no idea what is going on around him!
and we made some last minute additions to the simulation that Piggy does not know about
Like adding a trap door right below Piggy…
So imagine that Ryan Tannehill is standing in the pocket..if there is a pocket
And suddenly something unexpected happens so the play doesn’t go as planned
To simulate this…the trap door opens…
Now the blindfolded Piggy has no idea what is around him
In this case, we have a room full of hungry crocodiles to simulate the rushing defensive players coming at Ryan Tannehill
Look at Piggy Panic!
Ryan Tannehill has been sacked 195 times in his career
He’s under pressure a lot more than that
He’s had a horrible offensive line
No run game
Some very predictable play calling
But some think he holds the ball too long
And he doesn’t seem to move very well in the pocket.
He has no sense of the rush around him.
And the result is 41 fumbles in 68 games
Fixing this might be Adam Gase’s biggest challenge
Can it be taught?
Gase seems to think so he recently sighted to helping Jay Cutler with this when he worked with Jay Cutler.
If it is fixed, it might just save the season for the Dolphins.
Okay Piggy…I think I made my point. Let me help you out of there
Oh wait…we aren’t done with the simulation
to simulate the Dolphins breaking the heart of Dolfans, we will simply pull our hand away while Piggy reaches
and watch him drop to the crocodile pit again
Did we tell you we named all the crocodiles Geno Atkins to make this as realistic as possible?
…Well looks like Piggy made it out of the crocodile pit trap door!
Can the Dolphins make it out of this 1-3 hole?
