    Does anyone else notice the autistic-like touching of Tannehill's fingers? It's eerily similar to the way Leonardo Dicaprio's autistic character Arnie in "What's Eating Gilbert Grape?" used to tap his digits.

    Check it out, usually after he makes a throw and is knocked to the ground on his non throwing hand.

    He's certainly not autistic. However, it does imply he's cerebrally gifted, no?

    I know I saw it distinctly at least one time during the Colts game.

    Don't know what to make of it...

    IIRC, DiCaprio's character was mentally handicapped, not autistic. There's a big difference.
