This is a bit surprising!

This is a bit surprising! 


Philbin not confirming that Matt Moore is the backup this season means there is a realistic chance he will be cut. He's making $5M

He has starting experience.  If Tannehill gets hurt, Devlin or Lobato are the only options?  I'm not buying that yet.  Makes me wonder if he's keeping his options open in case the shoulder is more than it appears to be.  Don't underestimate the value of "experience" in a back-up QB.

Stephen Ross...ur an assclown.
Sell the Dolphins immediately before you completely wreck this franchise.

Cutting a backup QB to save $5 million THIS SEASON!!!! Nonsense. Matt Moore is worth every penny

Coach Joe Philbin "declined to answer directly" Monday when asked if Matt Moore will remain the Dolphins' backup quarterback this year.
Moore has battled a shoulder injury throughout training camp, and his $4 million base salary is quite rich for a backup quarterback. The Dolphins auditioned FAs Rex Grossman, John Skelton, and Brady Quinn at team headquarters Monday.

Tour I do agree with you, except if Grossman signs on.

If Grossman comes aboard all bets are off for Moore ... He'll be in a competition. For all that Moore has done in his career, Grossman actually has starting experience in the SB and I think is a better QB than Moore.

Lobato was bad, bad, bad with an added dose of terrible in first game.

Agreed, he was bad, but I didn't expect anything else from him. It would have been nice to have seen Pat Devlin play with the 2nd team O while Moore was nursing the injury but he was hurt as well. Devlin, in my opinion, is on borrowed time. 3 years of trying to develop him and he can't supplant the 2nd string guy.

Re: This is a bit surprising! 


You guys are missing the POINT
So your a headcoach, and in pre season you have a payroll that carries two QBs
The chances are that the only time you really can take a look at these two QBs in a game setting all year are in Pre Season, and low and behold BOTH of them are out with injuries...So you have to play a guy named Seth for 3 Q's
A guy that will never make the team is getting all the reps, RTH played 16 last year & is ready for the Pre Season
Your #2 & #3 are sitting, id be upset too

Re: This is a bit surprising! 


I read on twitter that Skelton and Grossman are out and Quinn is the only one left in consideration. This is a clear indication we should have drafted a QB this year. I don't know who or where but Devlin is garbage and Moore is probably leaving after this season and not exactly what I want coming in if Tannehill gets hurt or yanked. Moore represents 8-8 and nothing to look forward to. He's a decent QB and has been extremely inconsistent and doesn't practice well so not someone you want to rely on. At least when you roll a rookie out there, a rookie who at least gives you some reason to believe he can succeed, he represents hope. Quinn represents none of these things so hopefully Moore returns and gets back on the practice field.

Re: This is a bit surprising! 


Moore has not played well for us since he took over for Henne 3 seasons ago, needless to say Omar Kelly continue's to remind us that Moore sucks at practice and Lazor wants someone who going to push Tannehill.

If these guy's do keep there job's you can bet that Lazor has Hickey Draft a QB who can push Tannehill.

I'm not sure if they dump Moore but he is not going to be around next year.

I think Brady Quinn could be a good qb if given a chance . teams seem to be cutting qbs too soon .

it could be worse we could have Cleo Lemon or A.J. Feely .

Brady Quinn has been on 7 different rosters in his short career. He's not going to push anyone for any position. I doubt he even pushes Matt Moore. Moore is teh backup and quinn the potential #3 with Lobato going to the PS. There's a reason why Devlin was let go. He doesn't have an NFL arm and basically has maxed out his potential. So, they cut ties with him and bring in Quinn with the hopes that Lazor can spot something in his delivery and fix him. Also bringing in Quinn allows the team to put someone out there in the 2nd half who doesn't have a high ceiling (Lobato) and if he get's injured big whoop?

Not a bad move really. Grossman wants a chance to compete for a starting job somewhere. Skelton? blech.

+1 agree. When Quinn was with the Jets last year, he had the best arm on the team. I think Quinn would be OK if given a fair shot. And I'd prefer Moore over Grossman.

I think that speaks volumes to the issues the Jets have at QB more than anything else. Geno Smith, Sanchez, Quinn and Quinn had the best arm? Egads man!!!

Re: This is a bit surprising! 


Quinn does not have a better arm than Simms..... Simms has one of the livest arms in the league, he can throw it through a brick wall. Now........He can't hit the wall.....but if he could, right through it.

Re: This is a bit surprising! 


It's obvious that Lazor has no use for QB's with popgun arms. Jensen and Devlin both had weak arms ... gone.

About Brady Quinn ...

That's the beauty of signing a new "used" QB. There's so many intangibles. He had the best "arm" of any QB on the Jets (whatever that means.  Quinn, himself, thought he played well in the preseason with the Seahawks but got caught up in a numbers game (who can verify?)

There's also the most remote possibility that in his 6 other stops, he never had the right guys around him, or never got a real, prolonged opportunity.

Back up Quarterbacks don't play unless the starter gets hurt. Some QB's go for years without seeing meaningful action.

Don't get me wrong. I'm not Quinn lover by any means. But I'm always optimistic until proven otherwise. He's only 29 and still a beast physically, and certainly hasn't taken the pounding Tannehill already has.

I'm hopeful. Can't be any worse than Lobato.
