    Wow, we have 2 preseason games left and he's the starter? I'm leaning toward Pat Devlin based on stats alone.

    Well I will say Devlin is tied for the lead in interceptions and he is playing against 3rd and 4th string players...many who won't make an NFL squad...but where exactly are the stats that make you think he should be starting over Tannehill?

    Philbin wanted to name the starter before the 3rd preseason game and Tannehill has earned the #1 spot.

    Yes, stat alone, Pat forced that last pass and he was fighting the clock, I believe something like 23 seconds left. Pat has a higher completion rate and take the pick away, because the balll could have been caught, but probably should not have been thrown because of tight coverage. (clock management killed us)

    If I consider performance, its Pat hands down based on these 2 games.

    I don't have the luxury of seeing them during training camp.

    Oh well if we can take away and add things lets add the drops as catches for Tannehill and improve his completion percentage, lets add the TD that Wallace dropped and give him another TD on his stats. I like Devlin but he hasn't even faced the 2nd team defense. Tannehill tore into a 2nd team defense, didn't do great against a 1st team defense which is what I expected. What I didn't expect was Matt Moore laying an egg against Carolina's 2nd team defense and had he gone out and lit them up like Tannehill did to Tampa Bay we may not have a starter announced right now...Devlin never had a shot here but I do think he'll be a fine backup in this league.
