Ryan Tannehill’s “Energy”
In making the move to Ryan Tannehill as the team’s starting quarterback, coach Mike Vrabel said the team is looking for a spark.
So far, so good, Vrabel said.
“I thought there was good energy,” Vrabel said of Tannehill’s first practice session of the week. “It looked OK, it looked good. We’ll see where it goes today on third down, clean up first and second. But everybody’s just trying to play better, to understand their job better and give us a chance to execute on Sundays.”
Titans outside linebacker Cameron Wake was teammates with Tannehill in Miami.
On Thursday, Wake expressed confidence in the team’s new starter, but reminded it’s a “collective effort.”
“I guess I am the only person who can say they’ve seen every snap he’s ever taken,” Wake said of Tannehill. “It has been a pleasure. He’s a competitor, he’s tough, he has a strong will to win, he’s smart. He has a lot of intangibles and is a big strong guy who can run.
“I think he has all the pieces, but it is a collective effort. I don’t think any one player is going to be a solution to a lot of pieces that has to play better, and obviously my unit is one of those, I am one of those. So we need to go out there and put a collective game together, that is what is most important.”
