The Argument for Matt Flynn at Dolphins QB

Many things have been written about the current QB situation in Miami and I’m sure you are avidly watching as things continue to develop.  As we know, there are some leading candidates (not counting numerous other Free Agent QB options such as Kyle Orton or Jason Campbell or Donovan McNabb, not to mention that Drew Brees will hit the list also).  Let’s look at some possibilities and then focus more on who I believe to be the leading contender and the best fit, Matt Flynn.

On the roster now, Miami is carrying possible starters Chad Henne and Matt Moore.  Recently Chad Pennington signaled that he is feeling healthy again but most likely will retire (according to a report from last Thursday’s Palm Beach Post by Brian Biggane).  By the way, who does Pennington think is the best choice at QB?

He said pursuing Green Bay backup Matt Flynn in free agency could be the best answer for the Dolphins because it would set up a competition for the starting job between Flynn and Moore.

“Now you’ve got two guys who have proven they can do it, and with them pushing each other you may get one to take the lead role,” Pennington said. “That’s not a bad situation.”
