"Everything is going to have a different name," Tannehill added. "It’s going to be re-programmed in my brain to work in a different way. It’s a big task.”
Tannehill said he's excited to work with Lazor. “He’s a fun guy to work with. Just his personality coming in seems like it’s going to be a lot of fun," the quarterback said. "I’m looking forward to when we can get into learning the offense. I’m just waiting on that date. ... I’m really looking forward to taking a big step this year.”
"He definitely wants to push Tannehill more," a source who spoke with Philbin said, "and if he doesn't see improvement he said he might go to Moore at some point. He definitely has a lot of faith in Moore, and they're paying him a lot of money."
Indeed, Moore is due $4 million in 2014 and counts for $5.5 million against the cap. Tannehill is not due for a new contract until 2016.
Tannehill completed just 20 of 39 passes for 204 yards, narrowly avoiding a second straight game with a sub-50.0 percent completion percentage. He threw one touchdown, a 5-yarder to Mike Wallace in the second quarter, but followed it up with a trio of costly interceptions in the second half.
Despite the disappointing finish, Tannehill still made strides in his second season in the league. He finishes with 3,913 yards with 24 touchdowns and 17 interceptions, while completing 60.5 percent of his passes.
The defensive probables are defensive backs
Tannehill was held out of the end zone for the first time all season, as he completed just 10 of 27 passes for 82 yards, the second-worst total of his career. The Bills dominated the Dolphins' offensive line, sacking Tannehill seven times for 46 yards, and pressuring him countless others.
Tannehille briefly left the game in the fourth quarter with a knee injury, and he was eventually benched towards the end of the game. Tannehill finished with the worst completion percentage of his career at 37.0 percentage, and his 3.0 yards per attempt are also a career-worst.
Assuming his knee injury does not prove to be serious, Tannehill will try to bounce back in Week 17 against the Jets. He passed for 331 yards and two touchdowns in a 23-3 win over the Jets in Week 13.
