    Good video interview as well. Talks about a few other things besides Tannehill.

    The staff may feel comfortable in keeping Devlin as the 4th QB going into the season so that during the season they can trade Moore(if Garrard can keep healthy) when his value is highest right before the trade deadline.
    IMHO..In the long term, RT and Devlin are locks, while Garrard and Moore are stop gap.

    He's made it a point to do that since before Tannehill was even drafted. He's the kind of guy that doesn't like to be unfair to anyone and truly takes to heart the message he's stated a few times now that "Every player deserves a coach that believes in him."

    if they keep giving devlin only run with the 3's pretty much we probably can get him back on the p squad...might depend on in the final preseason game where he probably will play a lot how he looks...if he shows off a much better arm and good accuracy might be a little dicey...chance we probaby have to take...i doubt we carry 3 qbs the more i think about it...matt moores getting traded and for peanuts unless garrards back acts up or he gets dinged up and they don't trust him to stay healthy...

    I think there could more to it than the coach having respect for the player and belief in the player.
    IMHO..Devlin has WCO skills. They may see him as a solid back up for 2013.
    By 2013, I doubt Garrard or moore will be on this roster. They may not want to risk losing him.
    Just the ramblings of a long time fan..

    I really don't see Moore being traded for peanuts. His contract is decent, he has shown he can win games, and backup QB is probably one of the more important spots on a team. Ask the Bears. He may be traded but it won't be for peanuts. And if anyone does not want to offer more than peanuts than it is in our best interest to keep him.

    The Bears? Ask the Colts, lol. Of course that got them Andrew Luck so it wasn't all bad (other than watching them during the season).

    I agree with ck on this one though. Philbin has made it a point not to demean any player. He's never too high on a guy and never too low, he just evaluates things as they come. Like he said in his introduction speach as the new head coach..."demanding without being demeaning".

    This is where we disagree. His salary is not an issue, and the team would rather a great backup QB, as stated, versus a condition 6th or 7th. No way. I say a guaranteed 5th up to a conditional 4th (with that condition likely being 2 starts or something along those lines)

    the whole league other than miami fans it seems looks at matt moore as a backup...no ones taking him on thinking that he's taking them anywhere...if you get offered a 5th round pick jump on it...i don't see it going down like that...if you get a 4th do back flips...i'll stick with where i see his value around the league right now...late round...the contract i think helps matters but not enough to make it mean anything

    I agree that not many teams view him as a surefire starter, but he's got enough value as a fringe starter/back up that I think hed be able to snag some team willing to give up picks. Would he start in Arizona? I say yes, he would. I also think he'd do very well there.

    His value will go up as teams lose qb's to injury. The less he plays the better, teams fall in love with the hope that he'd be the answer. (Aj Feely, Kevin Kolb, Matt Flynn, etc) Someone will overpay, especially when there's more than 1 team bidding. Right now, he's worth more than a 4th to us as an insurance policy.

    A 6th or 7th is not worth it to us at this moment. He is a quality backup at worst. You cannot get that consistency in the 6th round. Other teams interested will be interested because of need and need alone. Not because they are looking for a project, somebody to compete, or just taking a cheap risk on a flyer. The guy won 6 games last year in 9 tries. Whatever you want to say, and I will not argue too much about whether or not he is worth a ****. The guy won, moved and managed a offense. There were starters and backups in this league who were not on par with him last year by a long shot.

    6 wins in his LAST 9 tries. 6 wins in 12 tries overall 2011.

    Is it just me? Or is anyone else really starting to like Joe Philbin more and more? I really like his demeanor, intelligence and philosophy. There's something about him that has me believing that he'll get this thing turned around.

    I think this is true. Right now Matt's value is the highest it has been coming off a good finish last year. With QB injuries his value could go up and someone might over pay for his services. One QB starter goes down in the preseason and Matt (or Garrard) will be in demand.

    Knew I should have just said 6 wins. Really don't want to start this thing over again. Bottom line he won games. If you think that teams are not saying to themselves while looking at their backup QB that a guy like Moore might be available maybe we should do our due diligence I would say your wrong. Some teams that were awful last year at backup have made moves to never let that happen again. This year there will be teams that learn that painful message too. Hopefully its the Pats! LOL

    I just have a question. I'm not trying to start anything, but why are people holding hope for Devlin when we drafted someone in the first round to be our hope?


    edit: let me expand, people are just hoping for a serviceable backup right?

    Who knows if Tannehill will be the guy. What if he's like another Henne? He has skills but wasn't a winner at Texas A&M. Devlin had a far superior college carreer than Tannehill, Moore, and Garrard in every category, and took his team to the championship game. Proven winner and great quarterback at the collegiate level, now at least give him a chance at this level. With both Tannehill and Devlin our odds of having a great quarterback are good. With Moore and Garrard, we have no HOPE for this year or the future. In my opinion, we're wasting too much time with Garrard and Moore as it is.

    I dont get the in fascination with Delvin either I understand how accurate he was in college. but he went undrafted for a reason, Tannehill has a ton of talent so I am fine putting everything in him

    The Pittsburgh stealers may need another QB if Rapesberger cannot make it through the whole season. It has been reported already that he has a partially torn throwing shoulder. He is a tough guy, but having a tear now...the guy might not last the season. Maybe dangle a package of the Steelers Wallace for Moore and a Fins mid-lower draft pick?

    Devlin has grown, gained experience and gotten stronger. He may be a sleeper. The staff will do the right thing..
