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: Preseason-Atlanta Falcons at Miami Dolphins Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

We have heard about this duo in practice, but we finally got to see them unleashed last night. Josh Rosen and Preston Williams made some big plays last night as both saw plenty of playing time. All in all it was a pretty fun game seeing three different quarterbacks take the field. The first team offensive line was a tad rough with two rookies starting at both guard spots and Laremy Tunsil was not playing. I think the big thing we can take away from last night’s game is Josh Rosen needs to start the next game and get some time with the starters.

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

Dolphins Quarterbacks

MIAMI GARDENS — There was this notion that Ryan Tannehill was too vanilla and too robotic and lacking of instincts and moxie and swashbuckle.And I apologize for starting a column about Ryan Fitzpatrick and Josh Rosen with a mention of Tannehill, who some noted was throwing a bunch of touchdowns for the Titans on Thursday night.
