The Miami Dolphins couldn't buy more time in the pocket for quarterback Ryan Tannehill if they had a Swiss bank account.
Tannehill has already been sacked 24 times, the most of any quarterback this season so far. That is a mind-numbing rate that puts him on pace to be sacked 76.8 times this season. David Carr was sacked 76 times in 2002 behind the expansion Houston Texans offensive line.
There are certainly times where Tannehill could get rid of the ball more quickly, but a video breakdown of his pressures and sacks from Weeks 1 through 4 of the 2013 season paints a grim picture for the offensive line.
The defenders are often found to be closing in on Tannehill within 2.5 seconds of the snap. That is not nearly enough time to go through progressions.
