We need a back up next year and we need a back up this year. He is hella cheap, gone through tons of offensive coordinators with no offensive line. In a year how much would it suck to have a young top 10 pick backing up a young top 10 pick? Really?

I get your perceptions...but we didn’t draft him top ten...we don’t have a big salary invested on him...he is a perfect developmental QB...and I’m quite sure the Dolphins feel the same way, as evidenced by their actions.
No the Dolphins didn't but the Cardinals did and the Dolphins still had to give up a 2nd round pick for him. So it's not like the price was cheap to get him. They basically took a flier on him and it ended up being a bad trade because Rosen will never get a chance to make an impact now that Tua is here. He had his chance last year and blew it. I just can't see Rosen being on this roster long term.

Reality is so far Josh Rosen has a 1st round pick (10th overall), a 2nd round pick (62nd overall), a 3rd round pick (79th overall), and two 5th round picks (152nd & 153rd overall) invested in him by two different organizations to acquire his services. Followed up by quickly drafting quarterbacks with top 5 picks both times.

Throw in the players like Erik McCoy that have proven to be outstanding young players that teams like Miami could've had instead and you begin to see the big picture. He's not some late day 3 flier that some sneaky scout took a chance on as a developmental prospect. This is a kid who stood there and proclaimed that he was the best quarterback in the draft.

NFL GM's don't like being exposed.

It's year 3. At some point you're just required to seize a job, produce, and string together wins.

For Mr. Rosen, that time is getting awfully close. It'll come and go before you know it.

To write off Rosen at this point is extremely short-sighted. And this has nothing to do with Tua.
No it isnt... Actually spending any time planning for the event that Rosen might pan out is about the same as starting to shop for a ferrari because you bought a loto ticket...

While Tua is toe tapping to his favorite disco songs, Josh Rosen is throwing footballs thru a tire swinging from a tree in his back yard.

Fitz is eating his 3rd birthday cake this month, growing facial hair and waiting for his social security check.

Hey the Dolphins are finally interesting...

I honestly believe they feel threatened that if Tua were in some sort of competition with Rosen that the coaches might give the nod to him over Tua. Maybe they think that Tua is going to make us instant playoff contenders and think Rosen is a threat to getting Tua on the field right away? Maybe they are concerned that if Tua is injury prone as feared, Rosen will supplant him due to injury? Honestly, it is one of the stranger backup QB fixations I have seen.
I know, right? Why would the generational talent Tua be threatened in any way by a bum like Rosen? Hmmm? :ponder: If Rosen is actually good enough to threaten Tua's opportunities to start, isn't that a good problem to have from a team perspective? :wacky Of course, all of our fans think team first, right? They never focus on one player over another. No way :wink

Passing for 4K yards is your undeniable proof of greatness? In an era where pretty much ALL competent QB's are doing that?
Really?........... Name 1 QB ON Miami Dolphins that threw for 4000 yds besides Dan Marino? I mean anyone can do it right?
But we had sort of a dry spell didnt we?

Lol. Last words are all mine? I'll make the word DENIAL.:hi:
