On politics

This will probably be my only post on this topic during this election year - other than obviously reminding you to vote.

So, here's the deal: we're headed into the summer, the conventions, and then the election. The airwaves, and your mailbox, will be flooded with ads claiming this, or revealing that. Most of it will be simply slinging mud at the other candidate, or trying to get you to believe that the other guy doesn't know what he's doing, or will take away your pet hamster.

You may have already decided on who to vote for, in which case I would simply ask that you consider WHY you feel that way. Just make sure you vote for the candidate that best represents your interests.

Now if you are on the fence, and can't decide, I would simply ask that you consider your options and make an informed decision! Don't base it on the attack ads, or on who's taller. Base it on the relative merits, and do your homework. There are plenty of places to go for help - politifact is a good source that's independent - to get to the truth about what a candidate says.

Don't believe the hype, and pay attention to what they say....

Now back to dolphins talk. Thank you.

Ross expects Moore to start

Today Ross told Jeff Darlington that he expects Matt Moore to be the starter week 1. He doesn't expect Tannehill to be rushed into things and wished Moore good luck if he indeeds does start. This is a little surprising because it's still very early but it is something that I won't be shocked if it did pan out the way Ross said. Tannehill might need time to get used to the NFL speed, if in fact he doesn't start right away. I predict he will start sometime during the season and the worse we are doing the earlier in the season, the earlier he will start. However if we are late into the season and still in title contention I wouldn't expect him to start. Basically I believe if we are hovering around .500 or worse by like week 10 I believe Tannehill will get his chance.

Moore did play decent down the stretch and I think he deserves a couple more games as a starter, whether that be in the preseason or regular season, it's up to Philbin.
