Looks to me this guy is overrating Moore's 2011 play...18/15 TD/TO ratio (pass + run / int + fumbles lost) playing against a who's who of bad pass defense last year imo does lead to deserving any benefit of doubt. The only doubt it leads to is doubting Moore can ever lead Miami to the playoffs.
But he makes a great backup...no doubt about that.
If what Mike Pouncey said was true, the entire offense was better when Garrard was in. What happens today is more important than what Moore did last year
Damn right he deserves a little benefit of the doubt. He was the only reason last season didn't completely tank. The guys responded to him.
Not a fan of Garrard. Can anybody name a QB who sat out a year due to being summarily released bc he sucked and was injured, and then came back and had success? I'll take him as a backup. That's it.
Yeah, supposedly he has been having good OTA's etc. Who cares. The true comparisons will be during the preseason games. I hope, and expect, Moore wins the job.
Chad Pennington. Volin has a very bizarre man crush on Matt Moore. He's overrated him all offseason.
It's a new coaching staff and system. Moore has earned the chance to prove he can run the offense, beyond that what more can he ask for? He will get first team snaps.
No, Penny played the previous year w the Jets.
Guess what I'm saying is that if it's close in camp between the two, Moore should get the nod to start the season.
This is Matt Moore job........ so no.
Matt earned my respect last year. I hope he gets the start.
It's about more than just a straight QB comp. its about installing an offense for the future. Philbin is going to pick the guy who can get the whole team running the WCO. That has to put Garrard in the driving seat. It's more than just which guy throws a nice fade route.
Moore will not just have to pick up the system, he'll have to be able to transmit to the whole team the command of theWCO that gets the whole offense ticking. That's a tall order and surely why you can see in player comments that there's a leadership and a composure about Garrard that the other two don't have. It's just another day in the office for DG.
Thats pretty hard for Philbin to ignore in the early games. If Tanny progresses well, I can see us skipping Moore altogether and handing the offense direct to RT next season.
True. But he sucked and was benched.
This argument for the 20,000th time. How exciting.
Yes i think he does what har garrard ever done he is no supper star i don"t even like him as a qb he stinks and will alway stink
All 46 plays.........

All we are saying........is give Matt a chance...........
Garrard's back is that same proverbial one hit away from IR that hung over Penny and his shoulder. For the reason of continuity alone, Moore should get the nod.
Haters gon hate!!! Moore is a beast
I'm thrilled that we got a veteran pro bowler to enter our QB competition. He appears to now be healthy. That said, Matt Moore was impressive during the last half of our season last year. But, I don't think Moore should necessarily get the nod just because of his performance last year. What we need is the guy who can best implement OC Sherman's offense coming out of camp. At the start of camp today, I think that could be any of the three, and I'm hoping it will be RT because I'd like to see the team get accustomed to his leadership ASAP. However, I think that's a long shot this year.
I was excited when the Fins picked Moore up, since I watched him play at Oregon State and surprise me several times - he won some big games for a bad Beaver team against some great teams (beat USC in LA, for example). I thought, too, that players responded to him, and at least the team was competitive for the rest of the season. Having a full offseason to fully learn the offense won't hurt, either). I actually like this offense, because of the low expectations for QB and WR. I think we might just surprise a team or two.
