NEW YORK (AP) Comments on the Miami Dolphins by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
MIAMI DOLPHINS (17)
Chris Berman (ESPN, 20) - Tannehill is the real deal.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 15) - Maybe the NFL's most surprising team. Ryan Tannehill is the real deal.
Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 18)
Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 14) - Joe Philbin doing a terrific job with that team and young QB.
Bob Glauber (Newsday, 20) - Another solid effort from rookie Ryan Tannehill as Miami moves into a four-way tie in the AFC East.
Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 18) - Reggie Bush is averaging 4.8 yards per rush in his Dolphins career, second only to the 5.1 of Mercury Morris.
Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 15) - I don't know how Joe Philbin is doing it, but I know I like the results. Dolphins are tied with everyone else for first in their division.
Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 13) - It's not always pretty, but Joe Philbin has these guys ready to play every week.
Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 16) - Ryan Tannehill is more than Dolphin fans hoped for in the draft and the defense is doing a very good job. The run game was disappointing this past week, but they are becoming a tough out. They are on a two game winning streak and lost two games in overtime.
John Lynch (Fox Sports, 18) - Tannehill is improving by the week and this team is competing every week.
Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 20) - On a day that Zach Thomas and Jason Taylor were honored by the Dolphins, rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill continued to follow in the footsteps of fellow Miami legend Dan Marino in a 17-14 victory over St. Louis.
Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 18) - Who would have bet they would be tied for first place in the AFC East at this point?
