Dolphins Quarterback Ryan Tannehill Determined to Come Back Better Than Ever in 2018

When the 2018 season begins, Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill will start his first regular season game since 2016.

Tannehill felt helpless watching the Dolphins struggle last season. It’s often viewed as cliche when a player says he improved while watching, but Tannehill’s explanation goes beyond film study. Time away has prompted him to approach his job differently, Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post reports.

“I am enjoying the moments,” Tannehill said. “Enjoying the process. Enjoying the grind. Enjoying the relationships. At the end of the day, doing what I love. I love competing. I love playing the position. And everything it entails. I love winning. How many guys can say they get to do this on a day-to-day basis?”

“I truly believe I’m in a better position than I ever have been,” Tannehill said. “Playing with more confidence. Excited. I think I had to go through the things I had to go through to get to where I am today. Obviously — obviously I kind of wish I could have been where I am now five years ago.”

Tannehill believes, without hesitation, he’s about to embark on the best year of his career.

“Totally believe that,” Tannehill said. “Totally believe that. I am more prepared than I have ever been. To play the position. Everything it encompasses. Physically. Mentally. Emotionally. I’m more solid than I’ve ever been. I’m more consistent fundamentally than I’ve ever been.”
