Tannehill to start for Dolphins in 2012?

The Dolphins have arguably the most unresolved quarterback situation in the NFL with 3 guys who could easily be out there week 1. Matt Moore is the incumbent who game managed well down the stretch, but he is hardly a proven commodity. David Garrard is a proven veteran who missed all of last season with a back injury. Ryan Tannehill is the 8th overall pick of the 2012 NFL Draft and their future at quarterback, but he might not be ready by week 1.

According to Adam Schefter, however, Tannehill will be the guy week 1, going as far as to say that it would be an “upset” if Tannehill wasn’t out there week 1. Schefter mentions that Tannehill already knows the playbook better than the other two quarterbacks as new offensive coordinator Mike Sherman was Tannehill’s Head Coach at Texas A&M and that the Dolphins like Tannehill too much for him not to be out there. Even if he’s not out there week 1, it sounds like it won’t be a long stay on the bench for Tannehill. If he starts week 1, it could easily be the first time 4 rookie quarterbacks start week 1 ever (Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin, Brandon Weeden).

  1. The Dolphins should have gone after the best defensive player to help Wake then pick Weeden. But maybe he would have been gone by the second round. But as always NFL Tolal Access rarely mentions the Dolphins. It must be because they have such a good team.


  2. In my humble opinion the Dolphins did the correct thing in picking Tannehill. I think that this young man is going to show everyone what a great catch he was. He has a fire that is under him and he has something to prove. Don’t get me wrong I kind of like Matt Moore and think he should be given a chance, but the young man was taken number 8 in the draft for some reason. I also think that maybe the Dolphins should have Plexico Burress in and take a look at him, I didn’t say sign him but at least give him a look over. I like what they have done with the defense and think that with the new 4-3 scheme we will take our defense from the top 10 to the top 5. Vontae Davis and Sean Smith have to show up every game this year and stay injury free. Vontae just shut up and play!


  3. We won’t know for at least a couple of years whether or not Ryan was a good pick, but with 2 veteran QB’s on the roster there really is no reason to rush him in there, let him watch for a few games and if he’s ready then bring him in say… game 5, worked B4, I’m just saying!!!!!
