The Facts: After watching Dolphins practice Tuesday, Herald staffer Barry Jackson reports the QB play appears to be better than what we saw during the offseason at times last year. One player, who did not want to speak publicly, told Jackson that Fitzpatrick has been the best of the quarterbacks so far but that Josh Rosen also has played well.
Diehards Line:Jackson went on to note that Fitzpatrick was far from perfect Tuesday -- he threw two interceptions and had several passes defended in tight red zone drills. But a over-the-shoulder throw to Kenny Stills for a 70-yard TD was a work of art -- reminiscent of the work he did with DeSean Jackson and Mike Evans during his hot start for Tampa last season. Jackson added that Rosen continues to do some of his best work in the middle of the field. Rosen, who had some of the league’s best red-zone numbers for Arizona last season, threw several TDs in red zone drills Tuesday but also threw his only interception down the middle. It was the second pick Rosen has thrown (total) in the two practices open to reporters. Jackson went on to note that he still sees snapshots from Rosen that reinforce why he was a top-10 pick and the competition is far from decided.
