Miami Dolphins 50 At 50: Quarterbacks

8 of 8

David Woodley

The Miami Dolphins relied on Woodley for four seasons. He was drafted to be the third quarterback behind Bob Griese and his apparent heir in 1980. After Griese’s retirement following the 1980 season Woodley teamed with Don Strock to form the duo of “Woodstrock” in the Dolphins back-field. The Dolphins interchanged the quarterbacks throughout games in the early 80’s. One year after the Dolphins appeared in Super Bowl XVII, losing to the Washington Redskins, Don Shula drafted Dan Marino in round one of the 1983 draft. A year later Woodley would move out of Miami and finish his career in Pittsburgh.

O.k. so we needed a 10th quarterback and honestly, I couldn’t bring myself to include Dante Culpepper, Gus Frerrote, Trent Green, Scott Mitchell, or the likes. Moore has been consistent as a back-up for the Dolphins and rallied the team in 2011 starting 12 games for the injured Chad Henne. Moore has made his four year Miami Dolphins career as a back-up and has been pivotal in helping Ryan Tannehill adjust to the game, learn to break down game film, and prep for Sunday’s.
