ESPN: Miami Dolphins Quarterbacks a "Hidden Treasure"

Miami Dolphins quarterback David Garrard gives the team playoff and Pro Bowl experience, but he is not assured the starter's position.

In a shocking change from the norm, the Miami Dolphins' quarterbacks are being respected by a major sports entity. In this case, it's ESPN on their AFC East blog which is taking a look at the three potential starting quarterbacks, Matt Moore, David Garrard, and Ryan Tannehill, and seeing the depth that they provide for the team.

"The Miami Dolphins are the only AFC East team without a clear-cut starter at quarterback," writes ESPN's AFC East Blogger James Walker. "But they own the deepest group of quarterbacks in the division -- and possibly the entire NFL."

Walker goes on to describe each of the Dolphins' quarterbacks, and what they "bring to the table." Moore, the Dolphins' starter from last season, Walker explains, "is coming off a career year and is a gamer." Garrard, who signed as a free agent this offseason atfer sitting out the 2011 season, Walker points out has the experience, both making a Pro Bowl and winning in the playoffs, the Dolphins want. As for the Dolphins' eighth overall draft pick, Ryan Tannehill, Walker states that he can make all the NFL throws, and has the potential the team needs in a quarterback of the future.

But, as Walker writes, "Miami is hoping one of these players can play the best football of his careers [sic] right now."

Miami head coach Joe Philbin has said the quarterback competition between the three will continue into training camp, and not be finalized until after the second preseason game. Any one of the three could step up and claim the Week 1 starter slot as his own. But which one will do it is the interesting question.

Meanwhile, poor Pat Devlin continues to get no love, and not even a mention, in an article about Miami quarterbacks.
