On the season, the rookie has thrown for 1,472 yards and has completed 59.1 percent of his passes. Tannehill has thrown four touchdowns and six interceptions; he has also ran for one touchdown so far this season.

So, Tannehill starts and is going nowhere, gets knocked out and Matt Moore comes in to win the game.

So, what's the hurry to get Tannehill back, again?

It does appear that Miami is capable of winning irregardless of whether Tannehill plays or not.

Well, he did have his team hanging right in with the 'mighty' Patriots in the East.

So what have learned from all this? Oh yeah, the Dolphins have a better QB tandem than the J-E-T-S.

I suspect they are trying to avoid a QB controversy. Tannehill is the future (for Philbin), and Moore the past, and Miami doesn't want to explore the possibility that the past is better than the future.

Congrats to the Dolphins for being an average team. I guess all those "experts" predicting 3-13 are eating crow right now, eh?

The Dolphins are one of if not the youngest Team in the league, they have some outstanding young guys who are on the verge of becoming a winning Team. They have a good shot at becoming a Wild Card, by Moore coming in and picking them up when they needed him, shows depth at a key position that is a Big Time Plus for any team to have the backup come in and win! Go Figure!
