I'd love to keep DA. he's filled in well and has a great chemistry with cam. and it's not like he'll usurp weeden in cleveland

If we're looking at the FA list above, I'd love to bring Josh Johnson in to at least compete for the backup spot.

I've wanted us to pick him up for a while now.

DA is as good as gone. He will go to the Browns looking to start.

That is what I thought too, but rememeber, Chud and Anderson fizzled out in Cleveland. Will the fans stand for round 2?

Josh Johnson, Jason Campbell or Tyler Thigpen in that order. This is null n void if D Anderson stays...although I'd still look at Josh Johnson to replace Claussen.

When your starting quarterback is a guy that's still relatively young, I always favor having a veteran backup. Besides the stability, they help act as a mentor/supplemental teacher to the quarterback coach.

So if it's not Anderson, I'd prefer we go free agent.

Preferably, you're gonna want a guy who's been a starter at least at some point in his career (what good is experience if it's all bench experience?) Plus you'll wanna pay attention to the systems they've been in (no WCO guys) and you absolutely don't want guys with a history of issues (so hell no on Vince Young).

There are a few guys to choose from in that list who could work.

Hell bring in the Walrus when he's done with his "comeback training" by that I mean just bring him to camp he has = arm strength to cam so the adjustment for receivers would be pretty easy you would think.

On that list I like both Jason Cambpell and Ty Thigpin

Matt Moore is the best backup QB avaliable. If he would embrace the role he would be a good fit. He would probably prefer to go to a team without a franchise QB in place and compete though. Moore's body of work in that role pretty much poos all over anyone.

I like Matt Moore but I am not sure having him back on the team is worth having TRD back on the Huddle?

Hell fugging no! I'm not sad enough to visit Dolphin message boards, but do you think he had the same vitriolic hate and rage for Tannehill?
