The Splash Zone 5/13/19: The Quarterback Competition

New, comments

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

NFL: Arizona Cardinals at Atlanta Falcons Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Honestly, there should be no quarterback competition in my honest opinion and Josh Rosen should just start week 1. But that’s not how it works in the NFL as there is always a competition to see who starts whenever. If Ryan Fitzpatrick starts, it just means he’s the better quarterback at the moment, but I wouldn’t start him for too long. The team needs to see what they have in Rosen and decide whether or not they are taking a quarterback in the first round next year or not.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
