I've really been trying to figure out what Miami is planning to do about it's quarterback situation. And they common thought is they will draft Tannehill with the 8th pick. I'm here to tell you they won't. Sorry we're in for another year with Moore as QB... but that might not be a bad thing.
Miami is in a bind because everyone wants a QB and there are no sure things out there besides Luck and RG3. Tannehill barely has a first round grade and some say he might have gone in the second round if there were not so many team desperate for a QB. So to see Ireland (stubborn bastard) reach for a QB is not going to happen. If he didn't pick Matt Ryan when he had the first overall pick he wont pick Tannehill at eight. Instead he will draft a player that will be an immediate starter with the 8th overall pick or try to trade down.
So what are we going to do at quarterback you ask. The answer is Matt Moore. If Ireland and Philbin thought Flynn was better than Moore they would have signed him as a free agent. $10 million guaranteed for a starting QB is a drop in the bucket. So that tells me they had a higher ratting on Moore than they did on Flynn. Gerrard will be the backup and you can probably expect them to draft Cousins or Weeden in the third round or later.
