    Hard to see that this matters in the big scheme, but how do you grow up in the sport and not know more than this? Exceptions: European field goal specialists I remember Toni Fritsch saying he was going to kick a touchdown one time for the Cowboys.

    Not quite as bad as Donovan not knowing the rules of overtime a few years ago, but still, this is pretty basic stuff.

    If nothing else, I question his judgment in advertising his ignorance.

    to be fair conference alignment is only really important come playoff time and it's not like Tanneyhill will be on a payoff team any time soon.

    He said he wasn't an NFL fan growing up. Guessing he was a college football guy.
    I wouldn't be shocked if there are more rookies like this.

    In his defense, he has a really hot wife.

    He's a rookie. Like someone else said, not nearly as bad as a veteran McNabb not knowing a tie was possible.

    Good thing he ended up in the NFL, he may have suffered an aneurysm trying to figure out the playoff cross-over rule in the CFL and what a rouge is. It means red.

    He did score a 34 on the Wonderlick. (Average score: 24)

    Actually, Tannehill is right. By all logic, Miami SHOULD be in the AFC south with Jacksonville, Houston and Tennessee.

    Indianapolis should be in the AFC North and Baltimore in the AFC East. But then the NFL has never really specialized in geography. I guess with only 8 road games per year it isn't as big a deal as some other leagues.

    I remember hearing that when the realignment went down in 2002, the Dolphins had some political pull in the commissioner's office and wanted to keep rivalries with New England and the NY Jets, just like Dallas wanted to keep some NFC East rivalries.

    and lets give the NFL credit, this alignment makes a lot more sense than the old NFC West with St. Louis, Carolina, New Orleans and Atlanta and the NFC East with Phoenix and Dallas

    Fuck that. He's an idiot.

    He's no different than the rest of the league; I'd wager half the players would need a week and 100 guesses in order to come up with all 32 teams.
