The Dolphin players have been informed that Tannehill will be the starter in London. Now we can end all the guessing and speculation. I know the game was bad and the offense has looked terrible the last two games. But lets take a step back and look at the bigger picture. The Dolphins have more talent on paper than the 0-3 Raiders and "should" win the game. That would put us at 2-2 entering the bye. Something that before the season started I saw as the most likeliest scenario. I saw us beating the Bills and Raiders but losing to the Patriots and Chiefs, two playoff teams from a year ago. However if before the season you told me we could swamp the Patriots and Bills game, I would take it.
Now the Dolphins still need to play the Raiders and if we do lose to them then all goes through the window. A 1-3 start before the bye with the next two games against the Packers and Bears, we could very well start off 1-5 with the season pretty much over.
With all that being said, we need to stick with Tannehill. Who knows he could somehow turn it all around and we go on a winning streak. Matt Moore is a solid back up and I trust him to come in if Tannehill gets hurt. But I like Matt Moore more as a backup. It is too early in the season to give up on Tannehill, he isn't Chad Henne bad.
Give Tannehill a game against a mediocre/bad defense and lets see how he performs. If he performs bad then we can revisit this discussion during the bye week. But for Tannehill's sake lets hope he has a good game and we can put this talk behind us, for at least two weeks.
I will say this though, I believe the Dolphins should draft a QB in the draft next offseason. Whether that be in the first round or the seventh round remains to be seen.
