We don't need to see what Moore brings to the table we already know. We need to see our franchise QB develop!
He has definitely earned the shot to start this upcoming game.
not suprising Moore is nothing special. He has played well at times , horrible at others. moore is not a long term starter in this league
Unreal and Ben Tweets this:
lol gotta love it
I would stay away from Volin on this. Dude has a love affair going with Matt Moore.
Matt Moore can only take this team so far. It's time for the Ryan Tannehill Era to begin.
We have to kid this kid some snaps against the oppositions first team defense.
I'm excited for him to start, he will still have that roberto Wallace connection going
hmm okay! At this point isn't it as simple as IF the rookie is even remotely close to the incumbent the choice is simple?
So this must be the last week before they decide who will be the official starter. Interesting week!!!
I'm not so sure - Philbin put Moore ahead of him for a reason, be it he looked slightly better at practice, or he thought Moore was slightly more ready than Tannehill. I think Tannehill will need another stellar performance versus the ones against Carolina.
You guys are stressing about this too much. Sherman and Philbin have a strong history of developing QBs. If Tannehill doesn't start this year, I have to believe there is a legitimate reason for it. If Sparano had been here, I'd be right there with you all...
Get rid of Garrard and let last season's second best divisional QB and our top ten draft pick duke it out.
tides...they are achangin...
Tannehill played great against the back ups using back up players. A great start. Until he shows that he can play well against the 1's, Moore will start.
The fact that Moore is the starter in practice is a good indicator of what the staff is thinking, but we all want to see more of RT.
I expect RT get most of the playing time after Moore get's in 2 series to start the Carolina game.
Depending on how the guys play, we could see RT starting the 3rd pre season game.
Why I mean according to the coaches garrard was out dueling them both, what do we lose
inb4 next preseason game where Tannehill does average or below average while everyone expects him to be outstanding and everyone makes threads about how Tannehill sucks.
Brittleness.. and a hit away from back traction: not worth the risk and resulting blow to continuity. Stopgap at best anyway.
The positioning makes sense. Tannehill will probably see more reps as the second qb coming in.
So is Moore (stopgap) He has outdone Moore in practice and seems better suited for this offense. Hell make Tannehill starter and have these guys as backups and we still have spent less at qb than most nfl teams. I mean by your logic might as well cut moore and Garrard
I would play the starters for a half. Start Moore and have him play the 1st quarter. At the conclusion, of the 1st quarter, I would go with Tannehill for the 2nd. Both would play with the starters and we can evaluate from there.
But there would be no guarantee how long Carolinas starters will be in. IMO if Moore starts against Carolina then he will be the starter...it would be tough to name Tannehill the starter without playing another teams 1s...and he said his plan is to have a starter going into week 3 game.
except he's about 6 years younger, healthy and most importantly already established in the players' eyes as a leader. Garrard's back = Penny's shoulder.
The only issue with that is Carolina may pull their starting defense before Tannehill gets a go. I'd like to see him against a 1st string defense.
Its nice to be looked upon as a leader but if the old man is the superior player as the coaches have seemed to lean Im sure he will be looked upon as a leader. Im not so sure that the players have been around Moore so long that they see him as this fabulous leader or a superior leader to Garrard. Im not advocating cutting either player , it would be wise to carry three qb's and Devlin really doesnt need to be one
Today I would start Matt Moore opening day with no hesitation. Now that view could change do to Ryan's strong play against an NFL starting caliber defense. I haven't seen that yet.
That's why i think start Ryan this week and let's see what we got. He earned it against Tampa Bay.
watch moore start with the 1's this week, then no decision as to who the starter will be. tannehill start with the 1's the third week of preseason, then a decision as to who will start the opener. then we use the 4th preseason game as our "dress rehearsal" for the regular season (all the starters playing into the 3rd quarter) - against the team we are playing's 2nd, 3 and 4th stringers.
Moore is only good enough for an average season...No need to waste another year of Dolphins football.
arguably nothing is more needed on this team than moore or tannehill getting as many reps with the 1st team as is possible. so if i'm splitting them then i'm leaning towards and/or hoping i can give them all to tannehill very soon. otherwise it makes no sense.
Zac Taylor pretty much attested how much the players respect Matt Moore and his leadership ..... so did Philbin. Some of you just want to strip him of cred anywhere possible. I don't get it.
Who's Zac Taylor?
He's our assistant QB coach, the guy who's running all the QB meetings ..... and a son-in-law to Mike Sherman. He worked with him at Texas A&M
Thanks for the info didn't know that.
Can't miss him, he's spoken quite a bit on Hard Knocks. He also played QB at Nebraska.
^^This is what i'm waiting for. Most Miami Dolphins fans are bipolar. If RT comes in and looks bad, watch and see the bandwagoneers will start jumping ship just as fast as they jumped on. We'll start hearing that RT is a bust :lol:
We're talking about the 1st game of preseason. They played 1 game and i've seen so many 'cut this player' threads I think i'm going to be sick.
RT will be just fine. We need cool heads to prevail and understand that RT is still not ahead of Matt Moore because he makes a lot of rookie errors. The coach's see that and go with the veteran until RT can get those mistakes under control, pretty simple.
Also, watch how the O-line reacts to Odrick hitting Matt in practice on Hardknocks. Something along the lines of "That's out starting Quarterback! Don't ****ing touch him you idiot!" onder:
WASNT STRIPPING HIM OF ANYTHING BUT WE DONT REALLY KNOW HOW ALL THE PLAYERS FEEL HELL MANY HAVE SAID GREAT THINGS ABOUT jOHNSON WHEN CAMERAS ARE ON
