The Miami Dolphins are 3-0 with the chance to start this season off with four straight wins — if they can get past the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

The biggest reason for the Dolphins great start has to be the progression of Ryan Tannehill at the quarterback position. One person especially impressed with Tannehill is star wide receiver Mike Wallace. The big money free agent signing for the Dolphins says Tannehill is ahead of where he expected to him be.

“I think he’s a really good player. I think he’s ahead of where I thought he would be,” said Wallace. “He’s a smart player. Whatever it is, the hype and stuff we’ve been getting the past week or two, he’s like, ‘I don’t care about it.’ He’s the same guy. He goes to work and prepares the same way.

"I think that’s going to make him a very good player. He doesn’t get caught up in the hype. He continues back to work and worries about what he did wrong. He’s not worried about the good throws he made, he’s worried about the ones he missed. As long as our quarterback is working like that, we’ll be fine.”

If Tannehill continues to play well throughout the season, the Dolphins could more than likely find themselves back into the postseason, and may even threaten the New England Patriots for the AFC East division title.
