    I think he can be a starter in this league, but I totally agree on your take on Moore. Matt has to make a decision...does he try to snag a starter's job in this league and get yanked around by a new coach and young QB or does he become part of the "fabric" of Coach Philbin's regime?

    If I were him and I could get a quality deal in Miami, I would come back to South Fla. I could do a lot worse.

    I think he goes on his own. Miami will offer him something but he wants to start and there will be plenty of opportunity in the league this year.

    Right now, Matt is the second best QB in the division not named "Brady." He's made his teams better with him under center - and that includes his total time as a starter with Carolina vs the comparable number of games Cam Newton was under center. The "career backup" stereotype is malarky for a guy who's about 28 yrs old and presently capable of being the starter on Buffalo, the jest, KC, AZ and Tennessee among others. I think an argument can be made that he'd be no less effective than Alex Smith if it were he on the same roster and with the same QB-whisperer HC. Ain't no way he's staying and teams that are not too far away like AZ and WRs like Fitz can ride with last season's 4th most accurate long passer for at least a year and maybe 2 until a high potential recently drafted mid round QB develops - and maybe even indefinitely if he does a Rich Gannon Oakland type re-enactment. Unfortunately he's gone but who could blame him?

    The guy is a quality player and is too often overlooked. I just dont understand why so many teams are starved for a QB and yet Moore never gets the opportunity. A team like Arizona would be wise to sign this guy and hand over the keys. Promise him they wont draft a QB. I think the last thing he wants to do is go somewhere that will draft a QB that eventually they will be forced to play. That would force him to play lights out in order to keep his job. He has been through that ringer enough already. If he goes in and plays above average somewhere, they will not let a rookie sit for more than 1 season. Hell, if he plays great but the team dosent win everyone will be crying to start whoever they drafted. Its a joke. IMHO he is a better player than Alex Smith. If you put Matt Moore on a quality team he is good enough to win whatever it is they want to try and win.

    Why would he stay here. He earned a chance to start last year, and he wasn't given one. He is going to move on pretty quickly.

    My hope is Miami, my concern is the Jets but I'll settle for Arizona.

    Arizona would have made a playoff push with Matt. They should have desperately traded for him during the season because the consequence is that it got people fired and wasted another year of Fitzgerald's career. It would be nice to have Matt back but if he gets a chance somewhere else I wish him the best. He's severely underrated by some of you. He is at worst an excellent backup, great leader, and a valuable player for any team.

    Wherever he goes he will not be given the starting job...he will have to win it,,,that being said..i say he stays here or goes to the steelers and backs up big ben or ryan.

    With ARZ offensive line, he would have been on IR with the rest of the QBs.

    My bet is he ends up in BUF.

    Matt will leave and he will take my best wishes with him. He has been great as a Dolphin; both on and off the field. Wherever he goes I will root for him (unless he becomes a Jet) and I hope he has a good career.
