2012 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)Last updated on Sep-05-2012 by Chris Weeks
The quarterback position in Miami is up for grabs this season. Last year Moore played well but I don't know that his performance was enough to earn him the starting position this season. Matt will be battling David Garrard a former pro bowler and rookie Ryan Tannehill for the starting position. Early indications point to Garrard leading the way but this could change at any moment. One bad day on the practice field or a bad series in an exhibition game could put an end to any chance either of these quarterbacks have at starting. At this point it's too much of a gamble to draft Moore as we just don't know if he will be the starter come week one. Should Moore happen to win the starting position he'll need to produce wins in order to stay on the field. A few bad weeks early in the season and Moore could find himself watching a few games from the sideline. There are just too many questions surrounding the quarterback position in Miami this season for anyone to comfortably draft one of their quarterbacks.
Update (8/22): Moore did nothing during OTAs and little during pre-season and as a result he has lost his starting job in Miami. At this point Miami has to keep him on the roster because Garrard is sidelined with a knee injury. If the Dolphins keep both Moore and Garrard (not expected) then we could see Moore cut once David returns.
