08:04 AM ET 08.21 | For now, the debate is settled. Ryan Tannehill was named the Miami Dolphins starting quarterback Monday, and was set to become the first rookie to start the season at the position in franchise history. ... Training camp began with a three-way quarterback battle, but the loss of David Garrard to a knee injury narrowed the battle to Tannehill and Moore. [Joe Philbin] left open the possibility of Garrard competing for the job at a later date. "Ryan Tannehill's our starter," Philbin said. "I told you guys David Garrard was our starter and two days later he (suffered a knee injury). He's our starter right now. David Garrard, when he comes back we'll see what happens, but right now this is where we're at."

"Tannehill was named the Miami Dolphins starting quarterback Monday, and was set to become the first rookie to start the season at the position in franchise history."

Technically, true, but Bob Griese was QB in Game 1 of his rookie season and for the rest of the season.

LOL Philbin had no problem slamming the door on Chad Ochocinco Johnson the other day ;-)

I think he called him back in and slammed it a second time!!!

"Ryan Tannehill's our starter," Philbin said. "I told you guys David Garrard was our starter and two days later he (suffered a knee injury). Ryan's hiding out looking at his watch hoping 2 days go by fast for him.

The question not that the Dolphins will be over or under 2 wins this year, the question, will Philbin be over or under 2 years as head coach?
