    Kim Bokamper on Sports Wrap said QB David Garrard could very well be done with the #Dolphins & said he is in very tenuous situation.Bokamper pointed out Garrard's injuries, contract & that by the time he returns a starting QB will be named & preseason will likely be over.

    Hung out and talked a lot of football with Bokamper Friday night for a few hours. He was never blown away by David Garrard anyway, never saw any wow plays in practice. I did make it a point to remind him that if you watch his 2010 tape, particularly Giants and Cowboys games, he made some impressive wow plays, especially with his feet...so perhaps we wouldn't see that kind of wow factor until real game situations.

    Bo is kind of running with the angle that the league has never been more kind to rookie QBs, and that even aside from that Ryan Tannehill is essentially not a rookie, and that if you were to make yourself forget he was a rookie and just look at him in practice next to Moore and Garrard, you'd start him. Was an interesting point. Not sure I fully agree but interesting.

    He also said that everything Moore did for us last year was great, but he doesn't feel like he can get us to the playoffs & made sure to say Tannehill has looked real good in camp & friday it showed. Said Tannehill should start.

    On a side note, Bokamper is a real nice dude. I remember the year we drafted Pat White after Fins practice I went to his restaurant & he started talking to me & my wife about camp, he hated the White pick, lol. He even gave us an appetizer & two drinks for free, just a real nice guy that you can talk football with.

    Hope Steinbach is cut while they are at it, the guy looks old & like he has lost a step. I know he was a year out of football, but he had two weeks & 1 preseason game to make an impact. So far he has not even challenged Hicks at RG nor is he going to. After the one day the Dolphins tried him at RG they reverted him back LG, cause of how uncomfortable he looked at RG. Right now the locks as your backup OL are Murtha (plays LT & RT) & Samuda (plays C, LG & RG). I'd like to say Garner as well, but he is banged up & admitted to Omar Kelly today that he had to tough out his injury cause he was on the hot seat & could not afford time off.

    Id be careful mentioning such a thing in a thread about David Garrard. Do you see the irony?

    Whatever you do dont post it in that pro David Garrard thread where apparently were all supposed to stick up for him because he cant help he is injured and he really is trying his best ya know. And we should just let him stay on the 53 man roster when the season starts because you know.... we need David Garrard.

    This pic was taken today by a fan at Fins camp, I don't know about injuries but by the looks of it Garrard might need some rehabilitation & who know how long that will take.

    Looks like the people standing around him are laughing at him. Maybe he made a crack about how hard it is to wakeboard on crutches.

    It's normal. From what I gather he just had loose bodies removed from the knee which is the exact same surgery Trent Richardson just had and they expect him to be fully available once the season starts. Recovery is only a few weeks. I think he serves as Tannehill's backup.

    Yeah, I have to agree with the thought that Garrard is probably not going to make it back in the race for the starting slot. It is Tannehill's to loose now! Wow. What a difference a week makes. Hang in there folks, there's a few more weeks of camp left, teams are going to start making cuts soon and you never know who's out there for the taking. Garrard going down and CJ being cut are just opportunity chances for a surprise to happen.

    I thought Garrard would be cut before this injury, and getting elective surgery during the 2nd week of camp just seals the deal. We can't release him while he is out, but I think they cut him when he returns.

    Garrard used to be a solid NFL pro QB. He is a shadow of his former self. My concern is his back issues and the pace of the hurry up gradually wearing him out..let alone him sustaining an injury. I do not think he would last more than 4 games.

    Now..since he is already injured, the Garrard plan "A" experiment looks over. He will likely get cut. If Tannehill can play well against the 1's in the next 3 games...he will make a case for himself as the starter.
    If Tannehill struggles somewhat, then start Moore in Houston and give Tannehill some playing time in each game.

    At some point this early this year, RT will start...my prediction is that he starts in game 6 against the Rams, but Moore plays badly against Houston, he could start in game 2 against Oakland.

    I have been impressed with Samuda at center. I never heard of the guy until I saw him playing. He looks like he could be a player.

    With Murtha, and Garner nursing injuries, I would be scouring the waiver wire. I would not release Steinbeck until another player is signed.

    Are you actually suggesting the Dolphins did not want him to get the surgery?

    Thats not what I said. I said Garrard elected to have surgery. He even said he could have played on it.

    I'm just a bit confused as to how Garrard effortlessly stood up on a wakeboard behind a boat but all of a sudden is mysteriously having knee pain that required surgery

    I like to look for the best in people who sign with the Miami Dolphins, because I have no control over who our team signs, but too much stuff with Garrard just doesn't add up. I think WV was right on this one.

    I thought Nate Garner was gonna be a good one. I remember a game against Carolina a couple years back when the Dolphins O-line was blowing the Panthers off the ball and Ricky was picking up major chunk yardage and scoring. I remember Nate Garner was in that game and doing great.

    I was hoping that Garrard would be the veteran starting QB until they put in Tannehill. Moore is nothing but a back-up; he has only won against bad teams while in Miami. (Not that it's all his fault, the rest of the team shares some blame, too.) With Garrard possibly out of the picture, I say start Tannehill NOW!

    Good, Garrard doesn't deserve to be added to list of failed Miami starting QBs since Marino. Just cut him already.
