    Tyler Thigpen trying to curb his desire to improvise

    Armed with a penchant for improvisation, Tyler Thigpen openly admits he only knows how to play football one way: relying heavily on instinct.

    If shares of Thigpen were sold on the market he might be declared a junk bond because there's a high level of risk associated with this self-declared gambler.

    But the Miami Dolphins also realize Thigpen could significantly enhance the team's portfolio because he's the type of quarterback that could produce a big return if managed properly.

    "When you've relied on your natural instinct for so long it's hard to shut it off, or tell it to be quiet," said Thigpen, whose unorthodox style allowed the Dolphins to make last year's season finale against Pittsburgh competitive.

    In that game Thigpen took over when Chad Henne and Pat White both suffered injuries. Thigpen rallied the team from a 27-10 fourth-quarter deficit. He led the offense to two touchdowns (throwing for one) late in the fourth quarter, but he also threw two interceptions in the game's closing minutes to seal the 30-24 loss.

    But he kept things exciting, which is the norm during practices.

    "He's a player," said receiver Brian Hartline. "He gets out there and competes. It might not be textbook all the time, but the dude produces and makes plays. I think Tyler is a good player."

    I think Thigpen is a good quarterback. He should be the backup for us.

    It's certainly his to lose. He performed on an acceptable level on a terrible team. And he didn't have enough action for us last season to call him bust or otherwise. Everyone can throw picks when trying to come back from a large deficit. However he will never progress beyond a starter on a crap team or a backup on a good one if he elevates to nothing more than what he is now.

    He's decent, a guy that will probably always have a job somewhere in the NFL.

    He has good skills, but nothing special. He is your average backup QB that could easily start a team with a lot less talent.
