From what little I've read, Garrard has looked better...which of course has me super stoked.

Coach Leslie Frazier clarified this week that Joe Webb will not push Christian Ponder for the starting job this summer.
Frazier suggested the opposite immediately after the season when Webb flashed while filling in for an injured Ponder. "If something were to happen to Christian because of injury, we feel like we have a capable backup in Joe," Frazier said Thursday. "But there's no competition as to, 'Joe has to do this to beat out Christian.' Christian, it's his job."


There is never going to be a J Webb starting QB by winning the job in minnesota. He is horrible. As a WR he would be awesome. But that ship has sailed so....Oh well.

The pre-pre-season update

endzoneview wrote:CARDINALS - Kolb vs. Skelton
ANALYSIS - Whisenhunt isn't going to make the same mistake twice and insert a quarterback into the starting lineup based on his contract (see Leinart vs. Warner 2007). Skelton led the Cardinals to 6 of their 8 wins last season and should have the upper hand over the less talented Kolb once training camp gets started.
PREDICTION: Skelton
OTA UPDATE: seems to be 50/50 heading into training camp
TC UPDATE: Kolb threw a lazy pick and looked overall horrendous in the HOF Game. Skelton looked like Kurt Warner 2.0 by comparison, but in reality, he looked just good enough.

DOLPHINS - Tannenhill vs. Moore vs. Garrard
ANALYSIS - We get to watch this battle unfold on HBO, so lucky us. While Philbin and the Dolphins are talking up competition, it's really Tannenhill's job to lose
PREDICTION: Tannenhill
OTA UPDATE: Garrard and Moore have been rotating first team reps on a consistent basis
TC UPDATE: Tannenhill is getting rave reviews, but this is now Garrard's job to lose. Matt Moore is opening the pre-season 2nd on the depth chart.

SEAHAWKS - Flynn vs. Tavaris vs. Wilson
ANALYSIS - Flynn has the new big contract, Wilson has the upside and Tavaris is, well Tavaris. This team needs veteran leadership and Flynn should get the first crack, even though he only has three starts under his belt. However, I'd expect the leash to be a little shorter than usual if Wilson looks good during the pre-season
PREDICTION: Flynn
OTA UPDATE: still anybody's game, TJAX getting some support right now
TC UPDATE: I have no idea what's going on here. Pre-season will determine the depth chart as well as who can tune out TO and Braylon the best


TITANS - Hasselbeck vs. Locker

ANALYSIS - Locker and Hass will be splitting work down the middle early in OTA's, but I suspect if Hasselbeck looks good and is healthy, the Titans will lean toward the veteran. Locker showed flashes, but another year of observation will do him some good
PREDICTION: Hasselbeck to start the season, Locker to take over midway
OTA UPDATE: beat writers are split on who is in the lead
TC UPDATE: Hasselbeck still looks like the presumptive starter thanks to Locker's uneven play in camp. It's going to take a complete disaster by Hass not to start Week 1

Garrard has a very light grasp on the starting position.

Flynn starting pre-season game against Tennessee, will play 1st half, Wilson will play 2nd. No Tjack.

I would imagine. Any idea what his TC conditioning is like after sitting out 2011?

Matt Moore is horrible though, can't imagine him hanging on for more than a game or two w/o falling on his face. Think we see Tannehill for sure at some point.

David Garrard got in "far" more work with the starters than Matt Moore or Ryan Tannehill in Miami's Saturday scrimmage.
Beat writer Ben Volin believes it's "probably safe to say that the job is Garrard’s to lose." Volin's assessment comes one day after SI's Peter King filed a glowing report on Garrard's early play. It's hard to believe Garrard has been so impressive that he's clearly ahead of a first-round pick and player who made 12 largely effective starts for the Dolphins last season. We'll get our first live look on Friday when the Dolphins host Tampa Bay in their preseason opener.


Funny, I said the same thing.

It'll be interesting if TJack is a candidate for cut, then. He'd be a very expensive 3rd string, otherwise.


Wouldn't be surprised if he wound up in Buffalo, since they've been unhappy with Thigpen, and Vince Young is apparently dumb as a box of rocks.

Guess so

Sean Jensen ‏@seankjensen

Dolphins QB David Garrard very recently had knee surgery that will sideline him, according to a league source.


I would like to get confirmation from a Dolphins beat writer but this easily knocks Garrard out of the running.

This one's not a big deal at all, especially for a QB (as opposed to a RB like TRich whose gonna put tons of stress on his knees every play) simple knee scope to clean up debris... he should be fine going forward, there's still plenty of time until the opener; but missing preseason opens up a chance for Matt Moore or Tannehill to shine in exhibition and win the job (not saying it'll happen, but it's a possibility)
