Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin told Izzy Gold of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel that they may decide on a starting quarterback soon, but right now they still don’t know who it’s going to be.
“We may have a decision soon (on a starting quarterback), or we may play it out another week,” Philbin said. “That’s still up in the air. We certainly haven’t come to any decision on that right now.”
With David Garrard injured until the regular season, I don’t see him being on the final 53-man roster and I believe Ryan Tannehill will be the Dolphins starter going into the regular season.

Ryan Tannehill didn’t have the same success in week 2 of his young N.F.L. career that we saw in week one. Tannehill was sacked 3 times by the Panthers defense. He would complete only 11 out of the 23 passes he threw and only hit his receivers on the short route. Tannehill had a 4.3 yard per pass average. The Dolphins offensive line needs to get better to buy the young quarterback...

The Miami Dolphins have their man.
After a relatively brief competition with Matt Moore and David Garrard, Ryan Tannehill was officially named the Dolphins starting quarterback by head coach Joe Philbin on Monday.

Make no doubt about it: Cam Newton is expecting some special things from the Carolina Panthers' offense this season.
So he was encouraged to see his first-team offense bounce back from a lackluster performance last week with an impressive showing Friday night in a 23-17 win over the Miami Dolphins, an effort which could prove to be a springboard for the rest of the season.
