Tannehill struggling with "speed of game"
|Nothing will be determined until training camp, but this is the expectation that has emerged inside the Dolphins: Look for a tight competition between David Garrard and Matt Moore for the starting job, with Ryan Tannehill likely to begin the season on the bench.
Judging from offseason practices open to the media and feedback from multiple people, including players, Garrard has been the most impressive of the three, but not by a wide margin over Moore. (Miami Herald)|
FF Today's Take: The Herald goes on to say that Tannehill has "made sharp throws and Dolphins players rave about his arm, but the speed of the game has been problematic and timing issues - throwing too early or late - have contributed to interceptions". There's no question Tannehill would be best suited to serve a one-year apprenticeship while the two veterans battle it out. Regardless, the winner of this QB battle will be no more than a low-end QB2 in fantasy this season.
