Miami Dolphins: 5 Reasons to Start David Garrard in Week 1
Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

The quarterback competition between David Garrard and Matt Moore has dominated coverage from the Miami Dolphins' first three days of training camp. 

Much of that coverage reaffirms what we knew before camp opened: Garrard is the favorite. 

On Friday, ESPN's James Walker reported:

"[Garrard] took a step forward and definitively looked like the better quarterback. It's clear he is most comfortable in the West Coast offense. Garrard didn't force anything and made good throws downfield when the opportunity presented itself. Moore struggled with his accuracy on Saturday. He missed too many throws he should've made in an uneven performance."

Garrard even told the media, "I think my chances [of starting] are pretty good." Although the competition is still wide open, it's time to start embracing him as a potential starter. 

Matt Moore is a lovable fan favorite, and I doubt any Dolphins fans would protest if he won the starting job; however, Garrard is an underrated and reliable player who provides plenty of benefits and upside as well.
