It was nice to go to the scrimmage but it left me feeling like this offense needs a lot of work. Tannehill, Moore, and Garrard all faced our teams number one defense. Tannehill was the best QB at the scrimmage. He's was the fan favorite to. Tannehill drew the loudest applause on his first pass which was incomplete deep center. It's clear Miami fans want someone who at least attempts to go big.
Most of the passes today seemed like they were outside the numbers from the top three QB's. That has me concerned because it seemed like our WR's couldn't get open in the middle. Also the WR's and quarterbacks didn't look like they were on the same page. There were two times I noticed Garrard seeing a soft spot in the defense and throwing the ball at it. The WR's were late recognizing what Garrard saw and the passes fell incomplete. To add injury to insult, one of those passes could of been a touchdown. Remember when Pennington and his WR's did extra work in the film room to get on the same page? That probably needs to be done once we declare the starting QB.
Our Oline looked over-matched. The running game was poor and the QB were getting harassed too much. Hopefully our front seven is just that good.
DC$ missed one of about 5 field goals.
Our special teams allowed two returns. (There was a flag on the first one) I was ecstatic seeing the returns until I realized these guys were going up against our very own coverage units...
Delvin faced the backups and looked really good. But he was the only QB not to face the starters so it's hard to grade him fairly with the other QB's. I do think he looks like a keeper. He challenged the middle of the field more than any other QB. I was actually impressed.
At the end of practice I got my football autographed from Long and Tannehill. I hope that ball becomes priceless one day.
