It’s plain and simple if the QB is under pressure he will not have a good day. Saturday, Tom Brady... as elite a QB as you’re going to find was flustered all first half and lead his team to ZERO points. This was the most explosive offense in the AFC (at least in my mind). With elite receiving weapons at TE and WR he failed to score any points. So why do I mention that?
Because Matt Moore was able to move his group up and down the field for 17 first half points. He was also able to rally his offense in the fourth quarter to score when he needed to. They even tried to pressure him on that last drive and he did what great quarterbacks do…. He made the pay with a deep throw to Marshall. Then a few plays later he perfectly placed one in the end zone for Bess. He has all the throws, he has touch, he can find the open receivers, he can move in the pocket and best of all he can make big plays. Big CHUNK plays.
He ended the night with just a couple of errors. Fumbled snap that in my opinion was the center snapping too early. A fumble that in my opinions was caused by Colombo releasing his man to the inside instead of the expected outside. An interception which was untimely and might have cost us points.
You remove those 3 plays and this might be a Dolphin victory and everyone is raving about how Moore is the future. I am changing my position from draft a QB at all cost to if one falls to us take it but don’t sell the farm to replace a position that Matt Moore has taken care off. I can’t imagine any rookie QB playing as well as Moore.
