    Makes no sense to start Moore if Tannehill is playing as good or better. I dont buy this throwing to wolves crap. He isnt being overwhelmed

    Alex just wants to be 1st in line for the "i told you so" wagon ride. He is not thinking logically , he is thinking of getting his name some bandwidth.

    I see no reason not to play him, hes clearly got Moore beat. Garrard will not be ready week 1 so Tannehill should get the start if he does well he keep the job all year. if he looks like he needs time we can start Garrard after week 1 or 2 when Garrard is ready

    Aside from being an earlier day local beat version of Omar and Mando, what exactly qualifies Marvelez to have his pedestrian opinion taken any more seriously than a Rex Ryan Superbowl boast?

    Somewhere out there is a dictionary with a picture of Alex Marvez alongside the word CREEP.

    It's a win-win for the Dolphins FO.
    If he sucks than the whole team gets a free pass this season as he develops
    If he wins, then they look like geniuses.

    And if Tannehill's career doesn't end up like Harrington and Carr then what? Will Marvez 10 years from now write a piece on how he was wrong?

    Probably not. Real important information we have here huh

    Alex Marvez should share double-chin tips with Rex Ryan.

    You cannot compare them or the teams they went to compared to us.

    Until our OL firms up I'd play Moore. We also have a very young WR corp.

    IF we have a run/pass ratio like last season it might work. Last season we ran a exact 50/50 split of runs to passes. In other words, run the ball a lot and protect the QB.

    Why? I think the WR unit will be better when Hartline gets back. He's no Pro Bowler, but at least he knows what he is doing and is consistent. i still don't think we have shown our true game, especially with Bush coming out of the backfield and cathcing passes in open space. Everyone is so freaked out by a couple of preseason games like it's the end of the world we got spanked weeks before the regular season. Let's let this play out.

    If Alex knew anything about football, I might care.

    That's not the case though. His articles make good **** paper though.

    The Bengals were terrible! The Falcons were worse off then we were their new HC quit mid year and their franchise QB went to Federal Prision. The franchise and fan base were in complete turmoil! You are right those teams were worse then us so I can't compare.

    Tannehill is way different. He is going into a system that he ran for 2 years + his offensive cord. is his old head coach! No QB has had that happen that I can remember. He is in a system that he is built to run....he should start!

    A mistake would be running this franchise the way its been run for the past decade+. The whole damn culture of this team needs to change and the time is now for that change. You start the QB you drafted early in the 1st round and you see what you got. Enough of this coddle BS. Tanne has the bawls/bravado/confidence to deal with the adversity he will face this season. We were not going to win a goddamn thing of significance with 80% of the quarterbacks in this league, so why NOT start him.

    Some writers just feel the need to be the contrarian because they think it makes them special. In this case, it just makes them stupid.

    Marvez makes it sound like we automatically crowned Tannehill...like Luck, and RGIII.

    I say he earned being named starter today and will be better for it in the long run.

    And Weeden, IMO, will be the lesser of the 4 QB's.

    It's all a crap shoot ! I am sure there is a list of qb's "thrown to the wolves" who failed and a list of ones who succeeded. Just as sitting a quarterback has a list of winners and failures. There is no right way or wrong way. you just need to go with who is playing the best in my very humble, non expert opinion.

    No one as of late has been "thrown to the wolves" as bad as Stafford was, now he's arguably the 4th best QB in the entire league.

    RT earned the job. He outplayed everyone else. Our Offense will be exciting and put up points. Now the defense needs to step it up like last year.

    Yeah, what a mistake. We should just wait for RT to have a shot next year. We know that holding the clipboard will help him look off the DBs, adapt to game speed and learn to read and react to defensive schemes. So we should just wait until next year to see what we have and let Moore give us a legitimate chance to reach the SB. Man, we should have Marvez replace Ireland.

    I am so tired of hearing him quoted on this board.....He clearly hates and attacks the Dolphins every chance he gets...I would think he would be on ignore on this board.

    Who cares? Moore went 5 for whateveritwasalotofmissedpasses last game against 2nd and 3rd stringers.

    DEVLIN out played the dude.

    You can't sit someone just for the sake of sitting them. If RT is the best performing QB right now, then you play HIM.

    This doesn't feel forced to me. This feels like Tannehill legitimately earned it. Trust me I'm sensitive to it feeling forced and I was saying exactly that to Volin at Bokampers the other week. I was saying there's no way you could declare Tannehill the starter at that juncture, because it would be forced.

    But he's 3 for 3 as far as outperforming his competition in game settings. Outperformed Garrard and Moore in the scrimmage, outperformed Moore against Tampa, outperformed Moore against the Panthers.

    There's being careful and then there's detaching yourself from reality. The guy goes 3 for 3, it's not a coincidence.

    If you don't come out of college in the first few rounds and AREN'T ready to start with the
    new rules, and all new NFL, you can't play the position at a starting level, IMO

    The media should just worry about continuing to hype RGIII and Andrew Luck. They'll find any way to make a pick six sound good when Luck throws it.

    We should start him and I expect him to perform like he should under the circumstances with his poor teammates. I won't blame him if the receivers can't get separation and the o line can't block

    I think the main difference here is that Tannehill has less weapons at his disposal than all of those guys. We have a very weak right side of the OL, and absolutely nobody that you can call a number one, or even a number two, receiver. It appears we may have trouble in the running game, and that is what protects your QB the most. I fully believe that Tannehill can handle it, but I definitely think he is at a disadvantage when compared to those kind of guys.

    Well I was comfortable with Tannehill waiting behind Garrard and/or Moore for a year and taking things step by step, I didn't expect them to tap him on the shoulder until much later. But if they think Ryan is the best already, so let it be, lets roll the dice. It is actually pretty exciting for the team to finally have a bright young QB.

    Cause every other expert doesn't understand that as a fan I want to see the football team that I work hard throughout the week in order to watch on Sunday actually have a better chance of winning. And yes, I realize that Tannehill's mediocre performance in preseason is still better than Moore's putrid performance, but our offense has been terrible with both, and with a terrible offense I'd rather have a guy in there at least to start that knows how to handle adversity and make the best of it when 9 things out of 10 are going to go poorly (which they will on this pathetic team).

    In baseball we would think its absolutely insane to use an incredibly small sample size in an exhibition game with inconsistent lineups to base your decision on, especially when neither player even came close to playing well, but here it's just standard practice.

    I think this is going to get repeated time and time again unless we prove otherwise. That said, Im sorry, i dont buy we have no weapons. This preseason ship is rediculous with some poeple.

    Cant wait to see RT when he has the regulars every week. Its actually going to be fun! Win or lose. Thats how you should look at this season.

    But no, The Miami Fanbase Strikes Again!

    No fun here.

    He has company. MARINO doesn't have one, either.

    Did SHULA start MARINO in the 1st game of his Rookie year? I don't recall...

    Who all were, if I'm not mistaken, drafted number one overall because of their superior talent and experience to almost all QB prospects. Not exactly players who had 17 or so games at QB in college.

    Besides, naming players who survived doesn't make the practice right. What about Jimmy Clausen, John Beck, Jamarcus Russel, David Carr, Byron Leftwich, Tim Couch, Heat Schuler, Kyle Boller, Patrick Ramsey, Joey Harrington, (Mark Sanchez?) etc, who played pretty early and stagnated?

    What about guys like Rodgers and Rivers, who sat multiple seasons? Heck, toss in Drew Brees, and you've got the statistically most productive QB's in the league, and all three were highly drafted and all three sat at least a year.
