A lot of good nuggets in here:
I'll paraphrase so as not to run into issues sharing an entire article.
1. Ryan Tannehill is clearly behind Matt Moore and David Garrard. Even Reggie Bush (who had the quote on an NFL Network segment that suggested he thought Ryan Tannehill would win the job) has admitted that it looks like the plan is to have Moore and Garrard duke it out while Tannehill sits and waits his turn.
2. (My own notes, not Barry Jackson's) The coaching staff just hasn't given Tannehill the first string snaps to give anyone the impression he's a serious contender. Philbin said before any of these OTAs that he's more concerned about numbers of snaps and not overly concerned about 1st unit, 2nd unit, etc. As I recall, the third day of Mini Camp when Tannehill started with the 1's, that was literally the first time that had happened, as per Tannehill himself as well as others connected with the team.
3. Ryan Tannehill was so upset about the lack of reps with the 1's he went to the coaches about it in mid-June. They said they're going to start slowly ramping up his reps with the 1st string. The third day of Mini Camp would have probably come after that conversation, based on the timeline.
4. Most people acknowledge that David Garrard has looked better than Matt Moore on the whole. That includes players, people connected with the team, local media members, national ones like Adam Schefter, and even Drew Rosenhaus. Everyone acknowledges it's way too early to call this one though because training camp is what matters.
5. "Philbin speaks well of Moore, but his praise of Garrard has been more extensive and effusive the past three months."
6. Tannehill's issues have been well publicized by now. Strong arm which teammates rave about, but holds the ball and is having trouble with the speed of the game. Didn't take many sacks at TAMU but has taken a lot of would-be sacks in Dolphins camp. Throws the ball too early or late which is leading to interceptions or drops.
7. Not many around the NFL shared my opinion that Garrard would win the starting job. Rich Gannon, Ron Jaworski, several NFL head coaches and people from the Jaguars all thought for sure Moore would be the guy. People with the Jaguars thought David got "fat and happy" after he got his contract in 2008. But the Dolphins have been impressed with his professionalism and performance.
8. Several statistics from Garrard in 2010 make him stand out above Moore in 2011: significantly higher completion percentage, way higher 4th quarter passer rating, significantly higher deep ball accuracy when factoring in P.I. flags.
9. FINALLY someone acknowledges Matt Moore's penchant for fumbling. The Dolphins are, evidently, worried about it.
10. Garrard's back hasn't caused any problems...YET. Real test will be training camp and preseason.
