I was reading through the accumulated material on David Garrard. At the end of the day, it appears that Miami showed some interest, but only wanted Garrard as a "fill in," strictly as a backup, and couldn't guarantee that he'd be on the roster late in the season. But they tried to spin it as he was happy not playing, and/or him wanting too much money.
Reading between the lines, what I see is a guy who wanted to come back and play, have an opportunity to start and showcase his skills; but for a team that's not in as bad shape as the Dolphins.
So in trying to get a guy who's an up-and-down QB but with some potential, the Fins bungled that as well. Clearly, they're not committed to winning this year (not that it would matter), then the spin made Garrard look greedy and lazy, neither of which is true.
The Fins just look dumb. Again.
