    Maybe to look for a backup QB to Tannehill if we can't keep Moore here....mid to late rounds. Other than that, we just need to get Ryan some more explosive and reliable tools to work with at wideout. I'm eager to see what Tannehill can do with an alpha go-to receiver like Jennings, Wallace, etc.
    I just try to be myself, whatever that is. I don't think about how I'll be remembered. I just want to be consistent over a long period of time. That's what the great players do.

    Yep, Wilson is leaps and bounds better than RG3 and is smart enough to realize when to slide or head out of bounds when he scrambles. His passing ability isn't too shabby either.

    Wilson is the likely candidate to make it because he's capable of making quick, smart decision THROWING the football.

    RGIII is a one-read offense. One read, then run. Wilson runs in the backfield but keeps his eyeballs down the football field and then takes off if there is nothing.

    The problem with all of this is that your linemen have their back to the QB at all times and don't know where you are and don't know where to protect. Wilson isn't very big. Neither is RGIII. It's gonna take one good pop for Wilson to change his game as well.

    I'm not a big fan of either, but I think Wilson has a better chance of being the better QB between him and RGIII.

    I hate even POSTING on a thread like this because it gets bumped up when it deserves to be deep-sixed.
    Tannehill's a "slash" guy too, in case you haven't noticed.

    But I think we all know that's not what you were talking about.

    If Matt Moore leaves via free agency I have always believed that Miami should draft a quarterback in the 5th or 6th round to be the #3 and push Devlin for the #2 spot. The high picks in this draft should be used to fill holes and build weapons around Tannehill. Not to try and replace Tannehill.

    I hope so because he had "some flashes" but why another QB?

    You are only as good as your back up.
    We are not guaranteed this is the guy.
    QB is the biggest impact position.

    To reply to some, There is nothing wrong with double threat QB's either if played smartly.
    The game is changing. Watching the 49ers/Packers game I had to wonder if Green Bay's template is not tomorrows template for "consistent success".
    A strong sign we have not improved, is the same tired threads on the forum every year.

As a fin fan of over 25 years, I've seen my fair share of qb's and I'm not nearly sold on our current starter. Wilson is proof that you never know which QB will be your starter till the competition starts. I'm not a rabid fan of Tannehill, but I'm a die hard Dolphins fan and always want the best for the franchise.
    Nope

    I think people just like to hate on the success of RG3 and Wilson to somehow make their accomplishments this year somehow get explained away. If Rg3 can stay healthy and survive he is a very accurate passer that will only get better with time and he doesnt make alot of mistakes. Took over and lead a team that hasnt been anywhere in years. As for wilson he overcame his height limitations and showed he can make it. It doesntt make Tannehill any less of a qb because two other rookies outplayed him

    Griffin os still a one read and run qb.

    Shanahan used Baylors offense last year for him. Griffin needs to change his playstyle or he'll be in a wheelchair soon.

    I also think they should draft another QB. Just not until the later rounds, like 6 or 7. Just in case.
