Nice find, MP.
Fun to see some of those names. Key Largo was a pretty active poster. So was snatch. I really miss Flippy.

Look at the ignorant guy who started the thread - didn't even know who Mike Wallace was.
Ryan Tannehill: Mike Wallace is the fastest guy I’ve thrown to
Posted by Michael David Smith on May 12, 2013
Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill has been working with new Miami receiver Mike Wallace, and he likes what he sees.
“Everything I heard about him coming in has proved to be true – he’s as advertised,” Tannehill told the Miami Herald. “He’s the fastest guy I’ve ever thrown to. It’s exciting.”
Tannehill said that when they first started working together, Tannehill threw Wallace a few passes and then suggested that Wallace should slow down to half speed while they got their timing right. Wallace replied, “I am going half speed.”
In addition to working with Wallace, Tannehill has been studying tape of his own rookie season and seeing a lot of areas where he can get better.
“There were a lot of throws where my feet were not set, fundamentally not sound, and the ball isn’t as accurate as you want it to be,” he said. “You look at the reasons for that and I hope to correct it, so it’s not an issue going forward.”
With that offseason work and the arrival of Wallace, Tannehill might be able to fulfill the Dolphins’ expectations that he’ll be the most improved quarterback in the NFL.
1.25 DT Vernon Butler, La Tech, 6’4” 323
2.58 CB Artie Burns, Miami, 5’11” 189
3.89 OLB, Alex McCalister, Florida, 6’6” 240-Jarvis Jones’ replacement
4.123 S Jayron Kearse, Clemson, 6’4 216-hybrid type we could use in 3-3-5 defense
6.220 OT Stephane Nembot, 6’7” 322-raw talent with ton of upside
7.229 CB Brian Poole, Florida, 5’10” 210
7.246 WR/KR Ed Eagan, Northwestern State, 5’ 10” 185-need WR depth and returner
It's nice that he is the fastest you have thrown to. He is also one of the softest so that time you trust him and throw the ball down the field to him expecting him to actually get a little physical, don't be too disappointed when he gets throw to the side like a 4 year old girl or when he just stands and watches the defender pick your pass of making no attempt to bat it away. Basically, unless you can throw it deep enough, and have enough field for him to burn the CB and run under it, he is pretty worthless to your offense. It's no coincidence that once you were inside the redzone he was worthless.
I agree Mister P...
Too often Wallace is so concerned with winning a footrace he forgets to adjust tot he football.
