Dolphins officially name starting QB

Ryan Tannehill has officially been named the starting QB of the Miami Dolphins. Philbin said that this was the best decision he could make at the given time. Philbin had said before preseason that he planned to name a starting QB before the 3rd preseason game and he followed through with it. There were questions when Garrard got injured if in fact Philbin would name the starting QB before the 3rd game and then again when Tannehill played good but not great against Carolina. I like the move and think it was the correct one to make because you want the players to know who will be the starting QB heading into the regular season and you want the players to know that the starting QB position was earned. I think that since Tannehill has outplayed Moore he gains the respect of his peers and if Moore would have been handed the job after performing poorly against backups it wouldn't have been good for the locker room. The one question I have with this is if either Garrard or Moore would be cut. Devlin has looked good and isn't making the amount Moore or Garrard are, so he should be a good #3 QB. If I had to guess right now it would be that Garrard gets cut simply due to the fact that he is injured , even though he has outplayed Moore

  1. Oh be positive and I hope this guy do his thing and see what happens.He is an excellent player and knows his stuff. Actually, every change, every new entry and every game is important, but we certainly expect results only. Although I also think they should be more selective. There are good elements that must be taken into account. Good luck to all.
