During Tuesday night’s Hard Knocks episode on HBO, it was revealed that Dolphins rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill doesn’t what teams make up the different conferences and divisions within the NFL.
“I wasn’t a huge pro fan growing up; I wasn’t loyal to any one team,” said Tannehill, “so I don’t really know the divisions, and even really conferences. I know most of the conferences but some of those, I really have no clue. And they don’t make sense. You have the AFC East, and we’re freaking in the bottom of the map, and the directions don’t make any sense where the teams actually are.”
“The veteran quarterback had Tannehill start with the NFC North, and gave him an assist by starting with the Green Bay Packers. Tannehill picked up the Vikings, but couldn’t remember the other two teams, listing the New York Giants before Moore scoffed at him.
“He later confused the Kansas City Chiefs for an NFC East team,” per Bleacher Report.
Just because a player is talented enough to play in the NFL, doesn’t mean he’s the sharpest knife in the drawer.
