Hold on a second.  The dolphins thought Moore was the better QB but more injury prone than cutler so they started cutler.  I disagree with the logic.  Let Moore with you as many games as he can and then if he is injured play cutler.

That's not exactly what it said. It said they didn't believe that he could stay healthy so that's why Cutler was brought in. I think Gase had to tell Cutler he would be the starter to get him to come to Miami so Cutler became the starter and Moore the backup. No where did I read they thought Moore was better than Cutler.

IMO, I can't say we need to spend this pick on this position,because I'm of the feeling that we have plenty of time for our front office to F-up the team some more prior to the draft.I thought Armando Salgueros' article yesterday was right on point (I don't normally read him, but I'm fine with Tannehill,for the near future)

Drafting a QB in the later rounds ok,but we have too many other problems,other than who's starting at QB to draft one in the top rounds.

Rumors from my Dolphin fan friends are that the FO is looking to trade Tannehill.

I would think that coming off the knee injury, the Fins would get very little in return for Tanny.  Throw in the fact that he doesn't have a hugely successful track record behind him, and a hefty salary, I'd be shocked if he was traded just because they would get next to nothing for him.  AND they would be right back in the position of not having a starting QB.

Nodding my head vigorously...all of the above.

Tennehill will be Miami's starting QB when the season starts...take it to the bank.

Yeah, Tannehill isn't going anywhere until after this upcoming season.

I hope not. If we trade him out it basically means we are in for a whole rebuild from the ground up, and i am not sure I can take that right now!

There was an interesting article a while ago suggesting when this season went off the rails it was due to lack of leadership within the playing group, citing Tannehill and Albert being the true leaders of the team in 2016 when the chips were down:

http://www.miamiherald.com/sports/spt-columns-blogs/armando-salguero/article194358364.html

While I still have some reservations about Ryan's mechanics, he has demonstrated he has some huge balls to take the nasty licks he has in the past and had undoubtedly earned respect within the team. That can go some way, as shown by how the Vikings rallied around Case Keenum this season.

That said, we need at least one new QB on the list to replace Moore and if the brass decide to roll the dice on a QB at 11 in this draft that happens to be the best player that drops to them (even though I still think they should sort out the gaps in the OL, TE or LB first) then so be it. Competition and depth at QB are good things, as highlighted by the Eagles this year, the Seahawks a few years ago, and the Patriots quite a few years before that. It must be good to draft a franchise QB on a rookie salary and have the luxury of being able to have someone of the calibre of Foles, Flynn and Bledsloe effectively become backups (who also despite their salaries, by extension become quite affordable or tradeable due to the low salary of those draftees). Anyone remember when we drafted a kid called Marino who crashed down the draft to us at 27 right after we made the Superbowl?.... maybe not  Tongue

So considering what happened this year, I think it's probably best to keep Tanny around for at least another year, but also worth considering drafting a QB (somewhere) to provide both stability and options.
