Despite Wallace's great performance and the fact that the two connected deep, you can't deny that Tannehill still has some problems.
First, the nitpicks. On both of those deep passes, Wallace had to go back to adjust to the pass in order to catch it. It was great to see him finally do it, but on the 57-yarder, Tannehill could've led Wallace just a bit more forward (if he does that, that's six points for Miami and a totally different ballgame).
But Tannehill was also fairly inaccurate with some of his throws and seemed to have communication problems with his receivers throughout the afternoon.
He would often miss open receivers to pass it to covered receivers, and after his first interception (a poorly thrown ball that was almost caught by a Panthers defender before being tipped at least six or seven times prior to the ball being picked off), he almost threw another one in the second quarter when the better idea would've been for him to run (which would've at least gotten him the first down).
Some of you may think I'm being too hard on Ryan Tannehill. The truth is, I'm being very fair. If he plays better, the Dolphins win this game. He couldn't put together a final drive to ice the game late in the fourth quarter (prior to the last Panthers drive), and he couldn't get anything going at all in the second half.
That's not what I want to see out of my franchise quarterback.
