Sometimes a person's body language provides a better understanding of their perspective, their struggles than the actual words coming out their mouth.

Mike Wallace served up one of those body language dialogs earlier this week when asked to evaluate his first 10 games with the Miami Dolphins.

When the franchise's $60 million acquisition was asked if he was pleased with his production (44 receptions for 534 yards) so far Wallace shook his head as if to say no, then said "it's alright."

He then corrected himself and admits "it's OK."

"I got one touchdown," Wallace added.

"I don't know," Wallace responded, shrugging his shoulders. "Just got to make plays."

When asked about the chemistry, or lack thereof between himself and quarterback Ryan Tannehill, Wallace admitted their bond is not where he'd like it to be.

He then tried to convince the media: "I'm not frustrated. I'm fine."

Problem is his body language told a different story.

The fact Tannehill has only delivered on three of the 15 deep passes he's thrown to Wallace might explain why.

The quarterback and receiver also haven't jelled on broken plays, which are often called scramble drill situations. That's when a quarterback buys time in the pocket and a receiver shakes his defender to get open. Wallace and Tannehill have a handful of those plays this season.

Problem is, scramble drill plays are what helped Wallace average eight touchdowns a season during his first four years with Ben Roethlisberger in Pittsburgh. They are what made him this offseason's most in-demand free agent.

Yet, 10 games into the season Wallace and Tannehill act like strangers, and clearly lack chemistry. And what's more troubling is the fact Wallace has been open for big play opportunities, but Tannehill has thrown poor passes.

Coach Joe Philbin openly admits missing opportunities like those are holding back the Dolphins' offense, which is averaging 307.8 yards per game (ranked 31st). That's the reason Philbin brought Tannehill into his office this week and instructed Miami's second-year starter to "just go out there and let it rip," according to Tannehill.
