08:05 AM ET 08.15 | The good news in Dolphins camp these days is being drowned out by the unfortunate sideshow that is Chad Johnson. But the feel-good stuff might actually be more meaningful and ultimately enduring as the Dolphins weave together what they hope is a season of redemption. While everyone was mesmerized by the private problems in Johnson's public marriage, the Dolphins are openly and unashamedly conducting a quarterback competition that -- ready? -- has so far shown rookie Ryan Tannehill to be the player quarterback-starved Miami fans have been longing for since Dan Marino. Yes, I said it. In the three weeks Tannehill has been in training camp, he has done nothing to suggest he will not be a star in the NFL.

In the shower this morning, it struck me that maybe the whole thing was staged for her TV show, or at least to boost its ratings. I'm sure Chad was surprised when his clown act was not well received by the Dolphin act.

Yes, a hot woman makes him the next Tom Brady.

I don't think so... VH1 cancelled the show, after all the mess.

No pesos for ocho.

Miami has had a lot of successors to Marino. Just no "successful" successors.

I can't even believe that they would ask that question- dude hasn't plade in a single "real" game and we are already trying to annoint him the next great Dolphin's QB....way to jinx the poor kid.

And yet, Tannehill has already tied Marino's record for Superbowl victories.

Or Senora Ocho, either, it appears. They'll be living in a trailer in the hills of Kentucky.

Nope. She's filed for divorce. If TO actually makes the Seahawks, he owes Chad a recruiting visit. Didn't Chad get TO the shot in Cincy? Maybe they can be roomies.

At Long Last a successor for Marino, for sure. Guy has a few practices and one preseason game under his belt... Franchise QB lock right there.
