Tannehill Toughness Evident in Record as Titans Starting Quarterback


Raise your hand if you expected Ryan Tannehill to have one of the best records in the NFL for a starting quarterback.
Since taking over as the starter last year, Tannehill has now played 16 regular season games, and the Titans record is 12-4.
Guy has grit according to head coach Mike Vrabel.

Said head coach Mike Vrabel:”You know I think that he has a toughness about him. I think that. I don’t know if there is just one. I like his toughness. I like his decisiveness.”
Said Tannehill:”Just always getting up. Trying to stay in the pocket. Make tough throws with guys in my face. Obviously you get better as time goes on. Definitely took pride in that going back to may early days in football.”

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at rnyman@wdef.com.
