Ryan Tannehill is Dolphins QB remainder of the year

It was a day hundreds if not thousands of fans at Hard Rock Stadium chanted, "We want Moore, we want Moore," signaling to anyone with ears they want Matt Moore as the Dolphins quarterback.

It was kind of understandable.

Tannehill, the Miami Dolphins starter since 2012, is not having a good season so far this year and didn't have a good day in a 30-17 loss to the Tennessee Titans.

Not good is defined as 12 of 18 for 191 yards with two interceptions and a 62.3 quarterback rating. Tannehill this year has six touchdown passes and seven interceptions and his 83.6 rating is the lowest he's had since 2013, his second season in the NFL.

But that doesn't matter ...

Coach Adam Gase was asked if he thought of benching Tannehill.

"No. He's not coming out," Gase said. "You can ask me 100 times, he's going to be in there the rest of the season."

Consider Tannehill appreciative.

"I know coach has confidence in me -- I have confidence in myself -- and I think the guys on offense have confidence in me," Tannehill said. "We're going to go out and play. I'm going to push myself in practice, do everything I can do to get better and expect to play better."
