I saw this on reddit today
I can understand this person's ire towards Tannehill based on his memory of him in high school. Hell, there were folks I ***HATED*** in high school whom I ran in to at my 10 year reunion who were complete 180 opposites of what they were. !7 year old kids are truly ***STUPID*** but they are just that...kids!
Hell my sister, who is a huge *cough* Patriots fan actually met Dan Marino and said he was the biggest @sshole in the world. Now I love my sister but I don't put too much credence on her judgement of people due to her own personality.
The thing is though, everyone has differing opinions of people based on their own individual perceptions.
Going back and re-reading that REDDIT post...
If Tannehill was 2 years younger than the poster, then how would HIS day be disrupted if Mr Tannehill shut down the school for Ryan's signing to Texas A&M? He would have already graduated high school!
I'm beginning to think that's a straight up garbage post.
In today’s cancel culture? If the accusing kid had any real evidence? Tannehill would have to apologize to the public 3-4 times ot be cancelled by the virtue signaling woke-bro’s.
Not that I'm condoning any sort of bullying; I'm really not but let's be realistic here, kids pick on one another. I was picked on, hell I even did some picking on of my own...then I grew up!
Did a young high school Ryan Tannehill pick on any kids? Probably so but to think that a kid's behavior defines who and what he has grown into as an adult is quite immature and that person's reddit post is just that...Immature. "I knew Ryan Tannehill in high school and he..."
Whoopty flipping do!
Now back to our regularly scheduled programming, already in progress...
The only thing I could think of is if the poster graduated high school at a later age or if Ryan Tannehill graduated school at a younger age.
But yeah, this story seems like a stretch.
I don't believe it based on the posters terrible grammar.
That's honestly the first time I've heard a story like that about Tannehill.. so I'm not sure what to make of it..
I've heard similar HS stories of CP3 from several people posting about him .. those stories of CP3 i feel like there's a lot of truth on it because it wasnt just one angry person, it was several people
Wow!Who the **** cares.Last I checked Tannehill plays for the Titans and the dolphins Qbs are Fitz and Tua!
It must be true because an anonymous person on the internet said it was.
1) No proof is offered. No facts seem to be verified above what is already public knowledge. The detail about having the whole school attend the signing ceremony seems very off to me, but it’s a different time and place from when I went to HS.
2) It seems very out of character for Tannehill. Hell there was a storm in a teacup here when he ticked off a practice squad player for intercepting him on walkthroughs.
3) We don't know what the relation between Tannehill and this alleged gay little brother. Specifically if there was antagonism between them who started it, why and what was the back and forth. When I worked in investigating insurance claims for workplace harassment it was common enough that there was a large degree of mutual antagonism.
4) I am inherently suspicious of “he persecuted me because I’m [a protected species]” claim. When I was an insurance investigator I’ve had people claim I was persecuting them because they were a protected species, yet we didn’t collect data on that, and I was persecuting them because they had lied to me.
Sometimes people are persecuted unfairly.
Sometimes people are persecuted fairly, but the person being persecuted thinks they are being unfairly targeted.
If the Reddit poster’s AGLB was persecuted by Tannehill it might have nothing to do with his sexual preferences but the AGLB might have reported it as such.
My suspicion index has been ratcheted up very high on this one.
This thread has reached unbelievable levels of surrealism! Keep it up, mofo'ers!!
Enjoy your practice squad paycheck.
I still don't think there was anything wrong with Tannehill making that comment.
My biggest issue with it is simply that it places importance on how much a player makes it their status on the team instead of their hard work and performance.
It's not necessarily the worst thing anyones ever done obviously lol but it was kind if lame to say.
I see it as a guy who didn't have the talent to actually make the team, was taunting a first round draft pick.
So yes, enjoy your practice squad paycheck, I'll be playing on Sundays.
Wasn't he just joking, though?
lmao i had forgotten about that... okay i guess there is a little attitude in him
The comment about the paycheck was denied by Tannehill. He admitted to making a comment about a "scout team trophy". His account was supported by Pouncey.
The full story is that it was during the walkthrough the day before the game. It the walkthrough, the offense is going through plays at way less than full speed. The defense knows the plays. Defender(s) (reportedly Chris McCain) were disrupting the plays and hindering the walkthrough.
Finally, Tannehill got sick of it and told them off. This was a reflection of Philbin's lack of control of the team. If this had been Tom Brady cracking down on nonsense, the entire league would have hailed his leadership. But, that kind of crap doesn't happen on a Belichick team. BTW, that was Philbin's last practice. He got fired after the following game.
The Miami Herald reported Monday that Tannehill grew angry when linebacker Chris McCain did something more aggressive than typical for a Saturday practice, saying something to the effect that he would prepare a scout team trophy for him.
Tannehill added: “Am I happy about everything I said? No. The way things went down? No. But I hold myself to a higher standard than to take a shot at someone like that, especially guys that I work with every day and I respect how they go about their business.”
Center Mike Pouncey backed up Tannehill’s version of events, calling the report “[expletive].”
“He doesn’t deserve that,” Pouncey said.
Chris McCain was an undrafted free agent with an attitude. He was a longshot to make the NFL. He ended up with 0 career starts. I'm going with the story told by Tannehill and supported by Pouncey.
New thing to add - Third best against playoff teams.
But Tannehill also thrived in the two-minute drill last season.
His PFF grade of 72.7 in that particular situation ranked third in the league, trailing only the New Orleans Saints’ Drew Brees (80.8) and the Seattle Seahawks’ Russell Wilson (77.6).
