A liar, cheater and murderer walk into a bar, the New England Patriots must be in town!
Matt Moore couldn't close games either. Remember the games against Dallas and New England on xmas eve day? 4th quarter failure. He had his chances last year to get Miami at least 2 more wins and he didn't make the plays either. You either have a winner or you don't and Miami does not have a winning QB on the roster right now.
Matt Moore also last year got the dolphins a nice cushion in a bunch of games and the defense didnt do the job and teams came back to win.
I agree, it totally takes the pressure off Tannehill and protects him in the long run. Let's assume Matt Moore plays at a high level, we have more options available to us.
If Matt Moore would have struggled or goes down early on, then you bring in a Ryan Tannehill.
I never really understood the need to rush him.
Remember the great John Elway struggled early on.
I am of the old school, Matt Moore earned it last year and if you're going to say Tannehill earned it in preseason, I'd have to say when, at what point?
Some guys play better when the games really count and if the philosophy is Tannehill is our future, and will be lucky to win 3 games this year, then why throw him to the wolves so early on?
