According to Dan Pompei of the National Football Post, there are a number of people around the NFL that aren’t surprised by quarterback Matt Moore’s recent success with the Dolphins. There’s some thought that Moore could potentially be more then just a back up at some point.
One coach that really like’s Moore is Cowboys head coach Jason Garret who worked with Moore when he was brought to Dallas as an undrafted free agent back in 2007.
The only reason the Panthers cut Moore this past summer was because head coach Ron Rivera felt he had to keep Jimmy Claussen and he wanted a more experienced quarterback behind rookie Cam Newton.
Since Moore has taken over the starting job, the Dolphins have done a great job with giving him game plans that he’s able to manage and scouts believe he has the intelligence, poise and ability to be win games in the NFL.
If the Dolphins end up winning a few more games this season, they might just play themselves out of contention for one of the top available quarterback’s in next year’s draft. In that case, Moore might be the quarterback of the future in Miami.
I would think that the Dolphins won’t hesitate to pull the trigger on a rookie quarterback that’s more promising if one’s available in the draft. I contacted pro scout Damond Talbot of Optimum Scouting, who told me that Moore is much better then Chad Henne and that he’s a gamer. But, he mentioned that he’s more of a player that can hold a team over until they draft a potential future franchise quarterback.
